Bluray, Kodak HD, Gorillapod

Sony has announced a third generation internal Bluray writer, the BWU-300S, which is priced at $400 writes at 8x and comes bundled with software. Very cool, but PC only. Me, I'm still waiting for Apple to do something about Bluray support.

The Nikon D-90 isn't the only camera offering 720p video. The Kodak EasyShare Z1485IS (point and shoot) does it too!.

Is Michael Moore's "Slacker Uprising" the first full-length movie to be released online for free? Or at least the first one intentionally released for free? Well, who knows, but it's out there.

The Gorillapod is this really heavy-duty bendy tripod that will support a camera up to 11 pounds (the Panasonic AG-HMC70U is only 5.3lbs without battery.) Wow. That's pretty heavy duty, though it does have a heavy duty price: $149.95. You could get a real tripod for that!
