Beowulf in 3D IMAX Review

November 21, 2007

Before I go into the details, let me tell you Beowulf in 3D IMAX was freaking awesome. We got to the movie late so we got stuck in the worst seats possible: the first row on the very left seat. Despite this the 3d effects were still spectacular and gave you a whole new way to look at movies. This is the best 3D movie I have ever seen, and I hope it will start a trend.

Rock Art : Amazing Rock Balancing Artist

November 15, 2007

So the other day my girlfriend and I decided to get out of San Francisco for a day and ended up going to Sausilito. The coolest thing there was the Rock Art.

Romove DRM from Video and Music: DRM Free

November 13, 2007

I have talked about Digital Rights Management and how it impacts people in an older post DRM Free Audio Movement. Well, I found a few sites that try and help with the movement that I thought were worth bringing up to peoples attention.

The first site shows you Where to Find DRM Free Vidoes . It looks like its a work in progress but hopefully the moderator will pick up and start to add some more DRM Free resources like how to remove DRM with DRM Removal Software. I do not know whats up with the guy who designed this site it looks like a Sci Fi channel, but I kind of like it.

The other site is DRM Free Audio  . These guys are a little bit better at having fleshed out web site. There is some good content including a review of some free drm removal software for music.  These guys also have a pretty sweet widget where you can check out some of the library from Amazon. So if you are looking for DRM Free Music you can check them out.

These sites are works in progress, but it looks like they were just created so I am sure good content is going to come with time.
