Star Trek Into Darkness

So I just saw Star Trek Into Darkness… IT’S AMAZING Haha…. I really liked it as I did with the 2009 version… I just felt it was really well put together and had a nice twist (I’m not spoiling anything!!). I really can’t wait for the DVD/iTunes copy to come out to see it again… Or I might just have to spend another £8.99 to go see it!

I really cannot believe the prices though. £8.99 to see it and then another 80p for glasses? I think that is a rip off and they know it. I am fully against piracy but I can see where people are going with it. I think if they reduced prices, more people would go to see the movies and piracy would be less… Just saying… Thats the reason why I haven’t seen Iron Man 3… I don’t have the money and I feel it is waaay too much. 

Anyway I hope that if you havent seen it, you will because it is such a good movie and is a great compliment to the whole series every episode before…

In the mean time, rock out to this…

Eames film a must-see for fans of Steve Jobs

“Many of us in Silicon Valley spent the past holiday season reading/finishing up the Steve Jobs biography,” Om Malik writes for GigaOM. “The book is supposed to give us insight into the mind of Jobs and how he worked. As an addendum to the book and if you are keen on knowing more about how creatives think & work, I would urge you to find time and watch Eames: The Architect & The Painter, a documentary about Charles & Ray Eames, a husband & wife team of creatives who helped shape how postwar America saw itself. From furniture to data design to corporate messaging – they did it all.”
“And when you are watching the documentary, recall little details from the Jobs book and think about the similarities between the Eames and Steve. They both were very clear in distinguishing what is design and what is style. And more importantly both made simplicity their mantra,” Malik writes. “The New York Times’ A.O. Scott observes that ‘Like Walt Disney — and like Steve Jobs — Charles Eames did not share credit.’”

Malik reports, “The [85-minute] documentary is currently being streamed on the PBS website (you do need Flash) and is also available on iPad app for PBS.”
