Do you ever wonder what HD would look like on the computer aside from in Quicktime? Think it couldn't get any better? You should really watch this video because the quality even blew me away. If you think that HD isn't worth it, think again. Preconceptions are made to be shattered. The last of CES is always quite slow, but Kodak revealed a new logo, and it looks better than Intel's change, but it's still a bit retro. I guess 50 years is a long time to have one logo though. Viewsonic showed off a really small projector, which I can definitely see coming in handy at colleges where I see students renting out VCR sized projectors for presentations. It's basically over now, but you can see a few video highlights over here should it so tickle your fancy.
Out of the blue, the top movie this weekend was Hostel! I've been excited about this one for a while, but to make $20.1 million on a historically craptacular movie weekend and beat Kong and Narnia is quite a feat for Eli Roth and his $5 million budget. The other two movies that opened, Grandma's Boy and Bloodrayne, predictably tanked, with the latter making under $1 million (take that, Uwe Boll). You can find the new badass DVD edition of Sin City in stores this week and it looks pretty sweet, so go and grab it if you're a Robert Rodriguez or Frank Miller fan. Speaking of DVD, Digital Bits have some impressions from CES regarding Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD, and it sounds like the big guys there were a lot more excited about Blu-ray. Could this be a biased opinion or a foreshadowing of things to come? The Japanese trailer for V for Vendetta has hit the Net and it looks pretty cool, so be sure to give it a look see. I wonder if this will be as good as The Matrix? IGN got a clip from American Dad and from Family Guy, and they're really worth a look. It'll be great to have new episodes again! Lastly, you can look forward to the trailer for Clerks 2 tomorrow, and usually Kevin Smith doesn't disappoint.
In light of some recent successes I've had with my Latin program, I just have to share this postcard with you all because it's so true:
