E-Book wars escalate: Amazon strikes back with cheaper 9.7 inch DX-Kindle Graphite…

Myyyyyy PREEEECCCCIOUS. SOLD!

Kindle kicks iPADS axx six ways to Sunday if reading is your application of choice. E-ink lets you read OUTSIDE, and the free built in wireless access is best in show baby. And now the DX, the 9.7 inch screen version is cheaper, faster, better contrast, and global network access capable, yeah baby. $379- we have pre-ordered and will review as soon as we get our hands on it!!! *Estimated shipping date July 12, 2010*

FOX:

Amazon.com is launching an updated version of its high-end Kindle electronic reader and cutting the price in a move to address the threat from Apple’s iPad tablet computer.

Amazon’s new Kindle DX, which sports a higher-quality 9.7-inch screen, will sell for $379, down from $489, and have free 3G wireless connection with no monthly bills or annual contracts, the company said.

It was the second price cut for Amazon in as many weeks. Responding to the threat from the iPad, Amazon cut the Kindle with a 6-inch screen to $189, hours after book-selling rival Barnes & Noble Inc lowered the price on its “Nook” to $199. Both had cost $259….

This is IMO the way to go for textbooks too…

Horror: Paranormal Activity 2 Trailer & update on Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods

Courtesy of HollywoodStreams

We were HUGE supporters of PA1 and the DEMAND IT! Campaign. I LOVE that an uber low budget flick broke all records for money making, LOVE IT.

…“Paranormal Activity,” produced for roughly $15,000, became a runaway hit at the box office following an innovative viral-marketing campaign, grossing $107.9 million domestically and $84.8 million internationally for a worldwide total of $192.7 million….

This trailer looks like they got me, with the dog and the baby no less! And best of all unlike Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods, we may actually get to SEE THE FRAKKIN FILM!!

We have been waiting more than 2 years for Joss’ horror homage! First they pushed back the release date to make it 3D, ugh, waste. Now it is the economy.

MGM apparently cannot get their financing together and any films we are waiting for out of them well, we will have to keep waiting…

First it was James Bond, then The Hobbit, now Joss Whedon is being taken out by MGM’s ongoing financial nuclear winter. Actually this is progress for Joss. Usually he’s the first to take the hit.

Cabin in the Woods, written and produced by Whedon, was set up at MGM and should have been swinging into form right about now. But the studio’s too broke and too broken to get anything done and so THR suggests that Cabin will be bumped off its January 2011 release date and sent to a waiting room somewhere in development hell.

MGM’s remake of Red Dawn may also be another casualty. It’s expected to be pushed back from its November release date….
