A big screen and a small watch: Apple unveils

A tale of two cities. Two times.. Two different ways of life. While the world burns in eternal war, the new technology of the future is being shown by APPLE. You can now play a real life Dick Tracy with an Apple watch. Or you can try your best to put your phone in your pocket with a bigger than ever iPhone screen. It's the closest thing to a mini-iPad without being one.. But it's not all flowers and big brother chips for the company. Some say that the watch is ugly and that Steve Jobs would have agreed. But to me, it looks like just a watch. And one step closer to what I have been predicting for years, as friends and foes alike laugh at me: that soon we this cutting edge technology will literally cut. And it will be physically implanted in our bodies, wired through our brains, and tapped into by the government and corporations who want to know deep down the advertisements that sell us on a product.

That is the technology of the future, being fueled by the prototypes (and ugly ones indeed) of today..

Imagine a future when your body begins to feel ill, you get a sore throat.. wonder what it could be. So .. dial up your index finger and "Google" your body.. Search results aim to heal.. Now that is a future that is amazing but yet fraught with privacy concerns that may today's concerns look like a bedtime story.

Starting in early 2015, some of the future starts happening.




New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
