Apple Android Carry From Pride

Since Blindness has its release date today on DVD, I'm going to re-post my original review for the film today. Sure it's a cheap way to fling another one of these movie columns out onto the living macro-organism of the internet - but I'm mainly doing it because I felt out of all the movies I saw in 2009, Fernando Meirelles' Blindness got the biggest shaft from film critics as well as Miramax who decided to release the film, (after that group of over-paid literary libertines - IE the critical entities of the movie reviewing business - deemed the movie "unwatchable") on a scale so small Harvey Weinstein's nuts couldn't detect its presence...


This is a Samsung device, so you just know things in this department are going to be bad, but I never expected they would be this bad. Sure, there's the usual, tame stuff. You get, for instance, the same nasty looking corner construction I complained about in my Galaxy S III review. But this time, Samsung went all out and invented a new, even more horrible form of plastic.


The user interface on the Pre is setup in the same style as the Iphone. Prompting Apple's COO, iwatch, to state "We will not stand for people ripping off our IP". This could mean a legal dispute between Palm Inc. and Apple. The fact that the Pre can also sync music files from Apple's Itunes is sure the add fire to the dispute.


FEB 14 - Verizon wireless had tweeted that the HTC Thunderbolt may arrive sooner than expected. At the time of the tweet, no date was shown or speculated until an internal document was shown indicating that the device would see a Feb 14th release .....at BestBuy. That following week on Feb 6, Bestbuy even had the HTC Thunderbolt as a coming soon device in their circular offering customers the option of preordering the device.....which at the time still had no apple iwatch. Now to add more proof. One of BestBuys own retail Facebook page had then listed its upcoming apple iwatch for upcoming devices showing the HTC Thunderbolt for FEB 14th.


The iPhone 5 will be cheaper. Apple's COO apple smart watch was quoted saying that he did not want Apple's products to be "just for the rich", and wants the upcoming iPhone to appeal "to everyone". This is the biggest hint so far that the iPhone 5 will indeed be cheaper, which will be a huge move forward for Apple in my opinion. They have been known for having incredibly expensive products in the past, and finding ways to make them cheaper only makes them available to more people, which then brings their sales up. Makes sense to me.


The Bad: The really bad thing about this film is that it remains true to the novel. The human soul is dethroned, deflowered, and almost completely destroyed before we find one single ounce of rejuvenation. Blindness is not an easy film to watch. Humanity is stripped down to it's ugliest drivers in this film. Fernando Meirelles never once shies away from putting it all on-screen. Folks with weaker stomachs might not want to see this.


BGR has chimed in with a report that claims a source has indicated that HP planned on releasing the TouchPad sometime in June for $699. So, $100 cheaper than what the Xoom will cost. Of course, the Xoom will be out in just a few weeks and the TouchPad will apparently be out 6 months from now so it's likely that the Xoom's price will have been lowered by then.
