Dream device for my car

Being here at OnHollywood has made me think about a mobile device that I want. I thought of this as I was sitting traffic this morning. I want a podcast delivery interface that has a screen in my car's dashboard and that is connected to controls on my steering wheel (like my car stereo is). I want to be able to scroll through the podcasts that are downloaded, so that I can select the podcast I want to hear and have it play through my car radio. My iPod can do this sort of, but the interface is just not safe when I'm driving. Read more about Dream device for my car

He demo'd how his new company can play a song on a number of platforms, from your PC or Mac, to your telephone, to your shoe. Yes, your shoe. Read more about the new MP3 tunes...

Is the Web the new Hollywood?

So things were off to an interesting start here today at AlwaysOn. JD Lasica's panel asked the question "Is the Web the New Hollywood?" I don't think the question was really answered (it's more rhetorical than anything else), but the panel did raise a few issues that I thought were cool. Here are just a couple points I thought were interesting. Read more about Is the Web the new Hollywood?

Are photo licensors exempt from the right of publicity?

[Yes: Three posts in one day. This is a record for me. But please read on...]

Here's a short story, with a question at the end. I'd welcome any and all comments, as I'm truly at a loss for figuring out how a licensor of copyrights in a photo believes it is free to ignore the right of publicity of the people featured in a photo.
