With Sony snatching up the rights to the Steve Jobs movie, I’ve been thinking about other nerd movies. I’m not talking about stuff like Revenge of the Nerds, but rather films that celebrate or honor renowned nerds or nerd culture. Obviously all the movies…

Qwikster launch site Qwikster is Dead! Long Live Netflix!

Remember when Netflix announced that it was going to spin off its disc-based business into a separate company called Qwikster? Well, you can forget about all that.

Demi Moore 1 Todays Poll: Would You Cheat on Demi Moore?

So the word on the street is that Ashton Kutcher has been unfaithful to Demi Moore. One report has him fooling around with a young cutie named Sara Leal. A more recent story has him playing around with multiple women in a hot tub at the San Diego Hard Rock Hotel. He’s 33 (and much smarter than he looks). She’s 48 (and still immensely beautiful).

Cable Guy slider Cable Companies Moving to A La Carte Model?

A lot of us have dreamed about cable companies moving to an a la carte model. We’ve dreamed of lowering our cable bills by only paying for the channels we actually watch. It looks like that dream just might come true. A perfect storm of a dreadful economy and improved digital offerings (Hulu, Netflix, etc.) just might push cable operators to break down and finally go a la carte. According to Reuters:

U.S. cable operators are privately working on a plan to force programmers to unbundle their networks and
