I want this post to be the start of shorter blog posts, so let's see how that goes over with the tech news that accumulated over the weekend. I will still keep blogging though because I wouldn't want to contribute to the demise of geek bloggers, which I think have just normalized rather than become totally decimated. Just as a follow=up to an article I mentioned last week about the decline in Indian outsourcing, I thought I'd plug this quickie about the possibility of such jobs moving to rural areas quickly becoming connected to the Net. The rest of what I want to discuss is actually Google-related. There's actually a good amount of buzz about the possibility of Google providing its own free WiFi service given its new control over dark cables across the nation in order to save themselves a lot of money in fees paid to ISPs. Considering such an ambitious project it's ironic that one editorial claims that Google has reached its peak. He makes a lot of good points in that they may become more focused on improving products quickly to block out competitors rather than roll out a lot of new stuff, but I just think it's too early to say that they've stopped accelerating.
Just a few movie items for the weekend, and I'm going to start with the scary stuff. JoBlo got some new Saw II pictures that are particularly creepy for those interested. The marketing campaign for The Exorcism of Emily Rose doesn't make it sound too good, but according to one reviewer it's surprisingly good and mainly a courtroom drama. I may end up seeing that one after all. We haven't heard much from Orlando Bloom in a while so I just thought I'd plug this interview with him to see what all he has been up to. Lastly, check out the new Domino poster:
