“New York has won the competition to become the shooting location for the four Marvel miniseries that Disney is producing for Netflix. These 52 collective episodes are part of an ambitious Netflix strategy to become a leading source of original science fiction and horror franchises. ”
Treo Kuittinen, Netflix’s Next Game Changer
Why wouldn’t New York be the filming location? The Marvel Universe basically solely takes place in New York.
An article by Vouge to which I answer: Yes. Yes we are.
All my friends are watching (or have already completed) the 2nd season of House of Cards. Me? I’m just starting on the first season. I’m more of a fan of the Hulu model (with the exception of the commercials). I’ll binge watch if I’m behind. But when a new season starts, I don’t think the entire thing should go up at one time.
¿Will Facebook pause chats while I’m watching my movie?
¿Will Facebook maximize the viewing window for the movie? Or will it be a hover over like Facebook has started doing with its pictures?
Now the deal states that if you rent a movie you can watch the movie on that movie’s Facebook fan page. Almost all of my social interacts have already been taken over by Facebook, I don’t want my media interactions to be the same way. It will be sad day when I have to have various subscription services to enjoy movies, and I can see the .market headed in that direction. Hopefully this idea will be a flop and studios will allow their movies to be in various arenas at the sametime. Much like the way they deliver their movies to various movie theatres and I don’t have to only see Warner Bros movies in Muvico theaters and Pixar movies at Sony theatres. Consumers want simplicity. I understand that products need to differentiate, but that shouldn’t come at the cost of the consumer’s ease of use for your product.
Samsung Sold 600,000 Tabs…but there’s no Newspaper
Its Thanksgiving Week!!!…which also means it’s Black Friday Week…which also means the holiday shopping experience is upon us. #Fact: I don’t really like shopping. #DoubleFact: I REALLY don’t like shopping when I can’t find a parking spot and the stores are packed. But that’s days are not here yet (although they will be soon), what is here however is some insightful stories about technology…so let’s get to the tech.
- Netflix changes its pricing structure and introduces a $7.99 streaming only plan. Now the streaming only Netflix is the same price as Hulu Plus, but the price to get DVD rentals has increased.
- The news on the street is that Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch are working on a iPad only newspaper. Cool, but what would that look like. TechCrunch has some ideas...
- The New York Times has an article about being young and growing up with technology. The always-connected generation is seeming always-distracted. Ironic?
- Saw this article at the beginning of the weekend about finding the killer apps on android. After reading this…I have some disagree fragments…but I pretty much agree.
- Didn’t realize that the Samsung Galaxy Tab has sold more than 600,000 units, maybe this will help to create some killer apps on Android.
