Disney Buys Marvel Entertainment! 3 Billion and An Army of Characters to Animate. Read More!

The biggest media deal of 2009 has just been announced by the Disney Corporation.  They are acquiring Marvel Entertainment for $4 Billion.  This gives Disney access to over 5,000 characters since 1939 and believe me, they will use them every chance they get.  These include Iron Man, the X-Men, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and even Captain America.  Each character serves to make a box office smash with the right production team, managed by Disney.  Marvel is powerful as well in other fields Disney is not.  The industry of comic books and graphic novels are 40% Marvel’s.  Overall, this deal sounds a little weird, as Marvel has made alotta money on some great movies over the last years.  So now, Iron Man 2 and even Spiderman are now part of Disney.  These movies have seen hundreds of millions and the company has net $3 billion just last year.  I guess they want to get stable and think even more is possible with the help of the Disney group.  Check out some mainstream media articles listed below:

DJ AM,  was found dead in his New York City apartment , 5pm. More reports show his body, wearing only sweatpants, was found near prescription bottles as well as a crack pipe.  This comes after one year earlier from surviving a plane crash with Travis Barker. DJ AM owned a club and was infamous for his DJ’ing in Las Vegas as a resident of the resort.  His last tweet was ironicly a quote from an old song by GrandMaster, or as I recall Snoops dis record in the East vs West Hip Hop Beef Era…  but DJ AM’s Last Tweet reads this:

“New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york ain’t always what it seems.”

Snow Leopard for $29 each or Family Pack for $49! Links to Reviews and Short Introduction Video.

Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is HERE!

Apple is back at it, much anticipated from conferences this year that introduced everyone to Mac’s new OS, Snow Leopard.  Great timing as Microsoft 7 is slated to come out soon.  The Mac program has been lingering around, but the greatest update is upon us, Aug 28.  The funny part is the price, as $29 bucks seems like nothing for all the features crammed into Snow Leopard. What’s the catch? You must be a prior Leopard user or it’ll cost $169.  They also say it’s not good for business, but personal computers will love the new integration of programs similar to Windows. Just think Safari 4, Quicktime Player X, TextEdit, Mail, and iChat, now even better. It tweaks programs and makes speed a priority.  No serial numbers when installing, browsers won’t crash just the plug-ins, and Adobe will be mad at the Mac’s PDF previewer which is rumored to be better. And lastly, Snow Leopard’s technology includes “Grand Central Dispatch” that makes the OS fast, reliable, and less problematic, by aiding each program’s processes with less chunks of memory. Sweet.  To read the full nerd reports, see the articles listed below.  Thanks for stopping by Twitter Trends at WordPress!

RIP Ted Kennedy

Senator Ted Kennedy passes away at age 77.

Family Statement:

“Edward M. Kennedy—the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply—died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port. We’ve lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever. We thank everyone who gave him care and support over this last year, and everyone who stood with him for so many years in his tireless march for progress toward justice, fairness and opportunity for all. He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it. He always believed that our best days were still ahead, but it’s hard to imagine any of them without him.”
