3D Revisited

November 28, 2007

Last year I made light of James Cameron’s comments about 3D “saving” the film industry, in short I was of the opinion the film industry was doing just fine and hardly needed saving. I argued that what we needed were better films, better theaters and an overall higher quality movie-going experience, not 3D to convince […]

August 9, 2007

Sure piracy in general and DRM specifically are multifaceted issues but I’d like to see the consumer given a bit more leeway to playback our media across the growing number of network capable CE devices that are finding their way into our homes. As it stands now device (a) may be capable of playing back a file containing DRM (b) but only if it’s not connected to device type (c).

To be honest I don’t think I’ve had that much fun with a big summer blockbuster since ‘Independence […]

Yeah it took me […]

Wii Component Cables

December 5, 2006

Just another quick update on the Wii, if you have the chance grab the component cables for your system, it makes a considerable difference. I looked all over for a Wii component cable, Amazon, Gamestop, Walmart etc. but eventually the good ol’ Nintendo store delivered.

Nintendo Wii + Home Theater = Massive Fun

December 1, 2006

This evening we opened up an early Christmas gift, no it doesn’t output HD resolutions or even Dolby digital surround sound for that matter, but it had the both of us enthralled from the moment we hooked it up to our home theater system. The Nintendo Wii may very well wind up being the most […]
