Links of the Day

Iron Man 2 Trailer #1 - Click the link to view the official Iron Man 2 trailer which includes a look at War Machine in full butt kicking mode. Gwyneth Paltrow continues to look exceptional with long red hair so lovely bonus. Whiplash (Mickey Rourke) doesn't impress as much, Scarlett Johansson always looks impressive and a brief sneak peek at Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury.

Lego Hoth Photos - Click the link for a gallery uses Lego sets and figs to create a gorgeous set of photos.

Alice in Wonderland Trailer - Click the link to few the latest trailer from Tim Burton's latest flick. The result is visually interesting but very bizarre looking film. The movie is coming March 5th.

Roy E Disney Dead at 79 - The nephew of Walt Disney died today after a fight with stomach cancer. While not as knee deep in the creative side of the company, mostly choosing the business side including leading two shareholder revolts that ousted two CEOs. However, his 56 year employment with the company allowed him to influence much of what it became, especially by re-energizing the animation department that lead to Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and more.

Entourage Edge Hands-On - The e-Ink tablet market is heating up as the Entourage is revealed with a demo unit. The result is pretty sweet. The idea is to basically replace text books while keeping at least some of the look and feel of a book. Sadly, there is still some work to be done as most of the 1.0 devices suffer from technology limitations resulting in devices that are larger than needed. The goal should just be barely larger then screen size with a touch screen interfaceand at most two buttons to turn page forward or backwards.
