3rd sign of the apocalypse has come...things seem to being at a nice pace.
Hate to break it to you Void, but sign #4 is also upon us...
That's ahead of schedule, we need to chew somebody out
Actually, no. Read the whole article. MS didn't give in -- they paid AOL pocket change in exchange for...
AOL will include Media Player as part of its online service -- it kills Real Networks, and really, who's gonna use AAC when Media Player's comes with Windows?
AOL will get better Windows source code support and get to keep developers on site at MS HQ -- while it might seem a win for AOL, it gives MS the ability to direct AOL Windows development.
AOL and MS will work together on media technology -- meaning MS will have more control of AOL Windows-based media.
AOL didn't get the upper-hand. They gave up" for $750 million. I see it as the beginning of the end of the alliance AOL/Netscape had with Apple.
But...maybe I'm just crazy...and I've been called crazy on many occasions.
BLWAA HWAA HEYAAHHH HA HAAAAAAAAA.
IA...OK...I'll admit -- that one's frightening.
No way, we NEED more songs made into movies!
That way Hollywood will have plenty of ideas.
Some future highlights:
Smooth Criminal the movie
Air Force 1's the movie
the list goes on and on.
Sk8er Boi? Yeah I saw that movie the FIRST time it was out. It was called Clueless. (minus the rock star famous part)...
Apparently Hollywood is scraping the bottom of the barrel again. Argh.
Well, look what they were left with -- "Spice World" has already been made.
Spiceworld? I'll go one better.... "Glitter" was already made Not much worse than that. tee hee
