You Can "Finish Him" On Blu-Ray In April
Lame news posts titles aside, Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation are being released on Blu-ray on April 19th to coincide with the release of the new Mortal Kombat game. With purchasing one of these movies you get a code for an exclusive Jade character costume for the upcoming Mortal Kombat game. But it’s only for the PS3 version of the game, sorry 360 folks. If that doesn’t get you to purchase these classics then maybe the fact that they both come with digital copies will. Still doesn’t get you? Well then… that’s actually it, both movies are lacking on special features it seems. Mortal Kombat includes an animated piece: Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins, a trailer for the movie, and a trailer for the new Mortal Kombat game. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation features the last two things I listed that in the Mortal Kombat Blu-ray.
I am excited for this as I grew up with these two movies and they were the best, if not most ridiculous, movies I have ever seen and I can’t wait to own them on Blu-ray.
Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV Breaks iTunes First Week Record In Four Days
Tha Carter IV which was released digitally after the MTV Video Music Awards has just not stopped selling since that time. Today the album broke the iTunes record for most copies sold in a week, it moved 300,000 digital copies the past 4 days. Breaking the record that The Throne held from just a few weeks ago. The album is expected to move 925-975k in the opening week.
This post is more so directed at photogs. Is it just me, or does anyone else feel uneasy about giving digital copies to clients? I’ve been lurking some forums and I’ve noticed particularly anything wedding-related that brides wont work with a photog unless their package includes digital copies so they can make their own scrapbook or albums for their parents/family/etc…
I just feel uncomfortable with the whole thought of it. They’re my photos. I took them. I put endless hours of editing into them. And they want a cd with hi-res edited photos so they can print and/or e-mail them. I just feel that by doing that I’m losing something I worked so hard on.
I’ve had a few discussion with people who disagree with my point of view, but the only way I’d EVER give a cd is if all the images were watermarked and (at the most) med-res. Plus the cost would go up substantially. Call me mean or greedy, but Idon’t like the idea of giving them away.
Any of my tech savvy followers know a way to download digital copies of movies onto a Kindle Fire? I found this: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/pavtube-software-studio/40920-easy-way-download-digital-copy-movies-kindle-fire.html but I don’t know how reliable it is?
Looking at you, and0utcomethew0lves :P

Apple TV, iOS Devices Now Recognize DVD Digital Copies in iTunes in the Cloud
iTunes Digital Copy movie files now show up under the Purchased tab of Apple TV and iOS devices and can be re-downloaded through iCloud.
Apple teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox to introduce the iTunes Digital Copy format in 2008 as a way for studios to let consumers import a digital version of purchased DVD movies into iTunes. Support for the initiative has gradually swelled as more studios have come on board.
In order to activate iTunes Digital Copy files, users insert the purchased physical media that includes a digital copy into a Mac or PC and then input a redemption code included with the DVD to import the file into iTunes.
Following the release of updated software for the Apple TV earlier this week, Gabe Gagliano of Tech of the Hub discovered that some of his iTunes Digital Copy files automatically appeared in the Purchased section of his Apple TV and were available for streaming via iCloud. The media also appeared under the Purchased tab of the iTunes app on an iPhone.
For now, Fox and Universal are reportedly unable to offer re-downloads and streaming of their movies because of a contractual obligation with HBO.
Apple announced the expanded iTunes in the Cloud functionality for movies and TV episodes on Wednesday alongside the release of the new Apple TV and third-generation iPad. The company first unveiled its iTunes in the Cloud feature last June as a precursor to the full-fledged iCloud service. The feature initially allowed music purchased through iTunes and apps downloaded from the App Store to be easily re-downloaded to authorized devices.
Seriously, I hate how books are becoming digital. Some people actually like going to bookstores and having a huge selection to view for a whole afternoon. or longer. If all books go digital, the future generations will not experience the smell of an old book, whose pages have been taken over by acid; or the smell of a brand new book; the yellow pages of an old novel and the clean new pages of a fresh new book; or the tattered pages of an aged novel that was published in 1958; or even the sound of a page turning slowly from an old book or a new book. There are so many things that books give to us and it should be appreciated. Digital copies of books are not books, note the word “copy.” Sure, technology is a great thing, but even if you can afford a Kindle or an iPad, why would you want to miss out on such a lovely experience?

Marvel Digital Comics.
Anyone else having this problem with Redeeming the ‘free’ codes that come with their comics?
Last week I ‘redeemed’ two codes (One for ‘All New X-Men’ and the other for ‘New Avengers’). I got the success page.
but when I go to my collection they’re not there. I tried entering in the codes again but I get the ‘already redeemed’ message. I emailed Marvel but I haven’t heard anything yet.
Today, I redeemed my code for ‘Superior Spider-Man’ and the same thing happened. It didn’t show up in my collection.
Is there something wrong with my account? Is it Marvel? I’ve done this plenty of times before and never had this problem so I don’t think I’m suddenly doing it wrong. Anyone have any ideas?
UPDATE: ‘Superior’ showed up. Still no sign of ‘All New X-Men’ and ‘New Avengers’
