You can access this simply by typing in film in your Google search bar and you can also search by actors and more. It does raise the questions of when we will see Google launch search for other specific types of inventory.
Want to see the every newspaper in the world today. Press display is a fantastic app and while I have not fully understood the pricing - I know one to two people who will be very very excited about this:
'I am in talks right now for the film's distribution and broadcast, so
I wouldn't want it online at this time. BBC will broadcast in February and
others will follow afterwards. Perhaps next spring or summer when the DVD
is mass marketed that would be possible.'
Great news Carol and I hope its a great sucess - would still like to see it for sale online though!
Which applications are really embracing the power of 2.0?
So what is Web 2.0 - It's the term used to describe the phenomenal opportunities that increased bandwidth and some new scripting prototcols are creating. It is the web becoming what was promised 5-10 years ago.
Skype going for $US4.1 billion and Google mania are signs that online applications are hot and that we are going to see alot more from Silcon Valley and Shaftsbury Avenue.
So what are some of the drivers of this excitement?
AJAX - Building web applications that use a Java script shell and then populate that shell with lean data. Suddenly web applications are as fast as applications on your PC (Well almost as fast - as fast as your laptop after you have loaded it with stuff for 6 months).
Universal Broadband - The enourmous acceleration in connectivity, a trend that is only going to increase
