the tracey fragments

ellen page seems to have a amazing ability of choosing intriguing and interesting films to star in.

the website of the film allows you to download the ENTIRE shoot and the soundtrack (by Broken Social Scene) for the film and re-edit it yourself.

my personal macworld keynote reaction

movie rentals - nice, if it worked in the uk and the streaming works at real time
apple tv - looking more attractive than before
time capsule - brilliant idea. when im in a household with more than one mac this is a must buy
macbook air - whats the point? i dont get it. yes its ultra-portable but so is a macbook which is more powerful and cheaper. it has no disc drive, no ethernet, no firewire. what are you going to do with this thing?
ipod touch upgrade for $20 - ridiculous!!!

the world is mad

"A security guard at the Fareham Shopping Centre in the UK accused a middle-aged couple of terrorism and banned them for life when they took out a camera to take a picture of their grandchildren. After the press jumped on the story, the manager of the mall said that they weren't terrorists, but that taking pictures of their grandchildren in the mall did pose a "security risk" and that they could come back provided they didn't take any pictures."
