When you hear the name "Lindsay," who (or what) comes into your mind?
I know that many who live in New York might immediately think of a former mayor. Some in the California might think of the Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek. It seems, though, that sometime actress Lindsay Lohan believes that she is Lindsay and Lindsay is she.
Lohan appears to have taken offense at one of the babies in an E*Trade TV spot that made its debut during this year's Super Bowl. Specifically, she is offended by the alleged milkaholic who happens to … Read more

Apple may not take the stage at Sunday's Oscars, but the company will be well represented by many filmmakers, directors, producers, and editors who will pick up awards.
In fact, 9 out of 10 of this year's nominees in the "Documentary Feature" and "Documentary Short" categories used Final Cut Studio to make their films. Final Cut Studio includes Final Cut Pro, Motion, Soundtrack Pro, Color, Compressor, and DVD Studio Pro, essentially giving filmmakers all of the tools they need to make a movie.
CNET caught up with a few of the people responsible for … Read more
A vast number of people will be seated Sunday evening, desperate to hear a good joke while the movie industry pats itself on its behind.
I am sure you have your favorites. For myself, I only hope that the divinity that is Sandra Bullock wins an Oscar, as she would then complete the most coveted double of winning an Oscar and a Razzie (which she picked up in person Saturday) in the same year.
The fine folk over at Torrent Freak have their own hopes. However, they have created a wonderful prelude to the big event, far more interesting than … Read more
VIP Torrent from VIP Rumor is one of the many free peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing applications in the crowded P2P scene. Like the others, it enables you to share and download large music, movies, data, and software files as smaller "bits" in fast, efficient "torrents" via P2P networks; any file that used to require big, expensive servers to host is a search and a click away with BitTorrent technology. VIP Torrent offers the full complement of typical BitTorrent client features, such as the ability to pause and automatically resume interrupted downloads, advanced searching, disk caching, automatic port … Read more

A man is caught red-handed by his blue-bodied wife.
He is in bed with another woman. His wife is not happy. His wife, in fact, begins to assault him. She slaps him, as he and his other woman try to escape.
Is this a scene from "Fatal Attraction"? Is this, perhaps, a cinematic homage to two Oscar-nominated movies, "It's Complicated" and "Avatar"?
On your digital camera, do you hate having to stop recording a movie just to capture a still photo? Apparently this irks enough consumers that Samsung added a Dual Capture feature to its new TL350 compact camera. Start recording a movie (at resolutions up to 1080p no less) and you can simultaneously snap 10-megapixel photos. Hopefully it doesn't leave a big hole in your movie while the camera captures the still.
In case that's not exciting enough for you, the camera is built around a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. In other cameras, this type of sensor has improved low-light … Read more
