The Guardian doesn't seem to see television mingled with computers as important as a study they've referenced shows that more than half of those surveyed don't care about watching television on the go. They're missing the point of the iPod video, which is showing the progression of Apple to take logical steps with their hardware and make bold strides in areas that have previously been taboo. iTunes is the first service to allow legal tv downloads to your PC. A really bad study though is one that AppleInsider has claiming that over a million Wintel users switched to Mac, which is a gross overstatement, in my opinion. I'm sure that there was surge due to security concerns and the iPod, but not by that much. Grokster is finally shutting down with a $50 million settlement on their shoulders, so they're aiming to make a legal download service to cover it. Lastly, Joel Splosky announced that his company is putting out a documentary on their internship program because he was disgusted with The Apprentice, and it actually looks pretty cool.
We now have word on the release of a couple of trailers. The first teaser for Miami Vice will be packaged with the December release of King Kong. Superman Returns is also preparing to release its first teaser trailer, which will come with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire next weekend. I'm sure that many of you didn't know this, but Spielberg jumped right to Munich as soon as they started wrapping on War of the Worlds, and so now we have a great trailer for it. The movie details a revenge plot following the murder of Israeli hostages during the Olympics in Munich a while ago and it looks quite compelling. The producer of Saw II has confirmed that there will be yet another sequel, but he has no details for us as of yet so I'm sure that you horror geeks are pretty happy about that. IGN has given the script for Rocky Balboa a rather mediocre review, but it may end up being a good boxing movie, nonetheless. There are a few pictures available of Uma Thurman in Super Ex, and I've displayed my favorite below but you can pick your own over here.
I just have to really quickly point out how funny it is that even the Pope rejects intelligent design asserting that evolution doesn't contradict Genesis, which is not meant to be a scientific basis but rather elicit the idea that the universe had a creator. So, ha to you fundamentalists!
