Thomas Edison in NYTimes 3/11/07

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/11/bu.../11edison.html

This is a must read. The article talks about Edison and his business practices and attitude--from propriety music formats, and signing up music talent to record for him.

I really laughed at how much of what he has done relates to everything from Beta vs. VHS and now HD DVD and Blu-Ray.

Check it out. Thomas Edison was always a hero of mine...this is a very interesting look at him, that I've never read about--though I have read about Edison's push for DC power--even though AC was a much better way of transmitting electricity-- kind of speaks a lot about his stubbornness.

Check it out.

Helping to stop spam in Mac's email clients

http://www.macworld.com/2007/03/secr...rilworkingmac/

I read this in the magazine and agreed about the new "image" spam vs. text. I set up the Rule in email to junk the emails with .gif attachments (majority are spammers, but I had one that wasn't. Might've been a mistake or a .gif was in it.) Check it out!

Pseudo photographic art

I came across a webpage detailing a form of photographic art... without a camera. The artist is using flat bad scanner instead, and completes the compositions in Photoshop. Never would have crossed my mind...

My local newspaper spotlights DVDs and Blu-Rays

This is telling; my local paper, the Palm Beach Post, does a tiny column on Tuesdays spotlighting new DVDs. What made me pause was that they also list Blu-Rays, but not HD DVDs. I don't know how long they've been doing it--I picked up the paper yesterday at my in-laws.

Tom Green turns RED

Tom Green has a 'Web-O-Vision' program every night on www.TomGreen.com live from his studio/home in the Hollywood Hills.

Tonight he was showing off his new Panny HVX 200 and Firestore. He then started talking about RED and Jim Jannard and how it they are going to change Hollywood.

Some consider Tom a silly A@@, but his use of video in comedy is revolutionary. Check out his Leonard Mills Videos on the front page. He really is a video geek too. Gotta love that.

Cablevision appeals remote-storage DVR ruling

http://biz.yahoo.com/ap/070410/cable...dvrs.html?.v=5

Quote:
Cablevision's system would have allowed any cable subscriber with a digital cable box to have DVR-like service by storing and playing back shows on computer servers maintained by Cablevision.
_________________________

A group of Hollywood studios successfully sued Cablevision, claiming that the remote-storage system would have amounted to an additional broadcast of their programs, something for which they haven't given permission.

'DVD Sales statistics ?

I am looking for a site that has informatin on DVD Sales by title. Major Hollywood films are not what I am conbcerned about, but the more obscure straight to DVD and indiependent rleases that are seen at Blockbuster, Hollywood Video and Netflix ...

As usual, I see some really bad B Grade (Corman, Scifi Channel) style releases and think; how much is that making ?!

Tks in advance !

New Wedding Music

I didn't know where to put this thread without spamming, but I wanted a place to offer videographers the opportunity to listen and consider a wedding song that I have written titled "This Ring" for media usage. I'm a new songwriter from Indiana and I'm trying to make a small dent in the wedding music market. Songwriting is not my main gig though. I am a teacher/track coach/husband/and father first. The song I am selling is what wrote for my wedding 6 years ago. Just this past January, my wife convinced me to get it recorded and do something with it so here it is! A few videographers have stumbled across my website and have wanted to use it. Check it out if you are interested. Thanks guys!

Recommend me and HDTV.

My parents are thinking of buying an HDTV because our current tv is getting old. We want to get an HDTV because then we can move to high definition when SKY's service is cheaper. I may not know everything about HD but I do know that they should get a full 1080p TV just to be entirely future proof. The budget is probably about 1000 ($2000). The only thing I do know is from what I've seen from a friend's tv, one thing I noiced was that there were white lines on edges in the picture, it looked like a photo that had been oversharpened in photoshop, he also said when watching sports that on the wide shots the players were often ringed with a white line. I would hate this so I just wanted to check that I get a tv that doesn't do this or one that you can adjust if this does happen. Don't forget I'm in the UK so if you recommend any models then please tell me UK ones.
Thanks
