Guilty

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty today in the involuntary manslaughter trial for the death of Michael Jackson. His sentencing will happen on November 29th, although the surprising part is that he was hauled off to jail immediately instead of being able to go home until the sentencing. The maximum sentence for his crime is four years although due to overcrowding in California jails he will only have to serve half of that and only at a county jail instead of a state prison. Michael Jackson’s family will get to speak out at the sentencing on the 29th, so it should be very interesting to hear what they have to say. The Los Angeles County DA’s office called Dr. Murray unscrupulous and corrupt, and mentioned how abuse of perscription drugs is now the leading cause of death in America.  The verdict gives the Jackson family a sense of justice, altough the sad thing is Dr. Murray was simply enabling Michael Jackson’s odd requests.

The biography of Steve Jobs came out today, written by a guy named Walter Isaacson, who interviewed the man behind all the cool Apple products about 40 times for the book. One of the big bombshells contained in the pages is the fact that Jobs hated the Android phone, and actually called it “grand theft” of his iPhone. He said that “I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I’m going to destroy Andoid because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go to thermonuclear war on this. They are scared to death because they know they are guilty.” Wow! The “they” that he is referring to, of course, is Google, the makers of Android phones. He later called Android products “$h!t.” What must have made this battle even more personal for Jobs is that he mentored the 2 guys who founded Google, and even later let Google’s CEO on Apple’s board of directors. Very interesting. I wonder if Google will suffer any sort of backlash due to this?

Does Britney Spears' new song "Criminal" steal from a song more than 30 years old?  I think it does.  It sounds an awful lot like a song that came out in 1979 called "The Logical Song" by a British band named Supertramp.  Listen to them both and see if you agree!  I'm wondering if the "Criminal" songwriters will get sued because of it, because they don't give any songwriting credit to Supertramp.  Evidently Supertramp never made an actual video for "The Logical Song," so I had to find this random one where someone just put a bunch of pictures along with the music, so don't laugh too hard!

Today Amazon anounced a new product that will be due out this November called the Kindle Fire. It’s meant to go head to head with Apples Ipad. With a 7″ touch screen it will be slightly smaller than the Ipad’s 9″ screen but its biggest selling point is something else thats smaller. The price! The Kindle Fire will sell for $199 compared to the Ipad’s $499. I don’t think Apple is vulnerable but it will be interesting to see how the Kindle Fire sells this Christmas season.

THE FUTURE OF 3-D JUST GOT MORE EXPENSIVE!
Sony has declared starting next May that they will not be paying for 3-D glasses. They will be saving millions of dollars per movie but the problem is someone’s going to pay for them and it will probably be us…the movie gooers.
