The Australian Minister Who Wants You Not To Download 'The LEGO Movie' Has Already Seen It In Australia
The LEGO Movie is awesome! Or at least, we think so. Everyone in the world will see it before one of the world’s most notorious pirate-happy nations (Australia, for those playing at home), which may very well lead to The LEGO Movie being the most downloaded film of the year. Attorney-General George Brandis wants you to stop downloading stuff, and plans to re-introduce three-strike laws to do it. Think he can empathise with you, the people, that Australia gets film and TV releases last? Don’t: turns out he’s already seen it.
I was liking this cutesy e-reader. Until I got my hands on a Kindle the other night. Now I understand why the Kindle gets so much love.
Well, that pretty much wraps it up for me as Nick Broughall’s stand-in while he was away the past two weeks welcoming a new child into the world. Nick is due back on Monday when all of you who have been hassling me about stuff for which I have no discretionary power will be able to find some resolution. Or not. Go easy, OK? It’s tough becoming a new parent. But before I go, here’s a few things I didn’t get around to posting earlier.
In this digital storage device face-off, we’re looking at two products that may do the same thing, but are chalk and cheese at face value. Canon’s M80 storage device (much like Epson’s device, indeed almost one and the same) and Digital Foci’s Photo Safe II have been on the market for some time but there isn’t much choice in this area, so they stand up as current offerings.
There are a great many things I love about Japan. Sushi. Akihabara. Karate. Origami. Sake. The list goes on. But one of the very coolest things about Japan is the respect that is given to pop culture heroes.
When early this year I first saw Sony’s 11in OLED I knew my plan to hold off buying a new TV to let the “next big thing” land had merit. Until now. Looks like large-scale production of the utterly gorgeous large OLED TV ain’t gonna ramp up any time soon. Or, at least, that’s the state of play according to CNET.
If you haven’t caught on to the phenomenon that is Google Wave, it’s probably about time you did. It’s Google’s game-changing application combining email, live collaboration and messaging, which goes only a small way towards explaining its potential. About 100,000 people have been invited to its beta workout. Here’s a snippet from Attack of the Show, via Techcrunch, that might help bring Wave’s potential into focus.
It’s the stretch Hummer of medium format cameras, with a little bit of Rolls Royce thrown in. It’s the Linhof Technorama 617, shooting a panoramic image onto film with a neg dimension of 6cm x 17cm. Holy mother of film processing tanks, Batman! That’s three times as wide as it is high and not a photo-stitching application in sight!
OK, sorry PC users. This one’s for Macsters only. But it’s required karma after hearing Foxtel’s Download Player is PC-only. We’re redressing a cosmic imbalance, so let’s not make a fuss about it, OK? Bento 3 has landed, bringing a bunch of new features to what is essentially the lite, fluffy version of Filemaker Pro, with capabilities tailored to home users and, at a push, small business operators.
