Very cute. Sophia and Isabella pretend they are the iPhone and BlackBerry, in a Mac vs PC kind of way.
I just got pointed to Joox.net from my sister in law. I’m really impressed that she found this site actually, and cant thank her enough for showing me. This site has a huge list of great old black and white movies, from the 30’s to the late 50’s. With a couple new ones thrown in there. Is it legal? No idea, but I’m guessing copyright ran out on the older flicks so it might be okay to stream them off. Nevertheless, they are online and available to view. You do need the DivX player installed in your browser to check them out. And as long as you have high speed internet, these old black and white movies will beam down the pipes.Titles include everything from movies to cartoons to television shows:
- Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947)
- Gulliver’s Travels (1939)
- Million Dollar Kid (1944)
- Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959)
- Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)
- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (a play)
- Teenagers from Outer Space (1959)
- The Great Gabbo (1929)
- Betty Boop
- G.I. Joe
- Inspector Gadget
- Mr. Bean

If you like to monitor how listed companies you follow closely are doing, try setting up a Google Finance Portfolio. I have been playing with mine for a little while and its an extremely good source for not only monitoring stock prices, but a great source for up to the minute news and press releases.Your Finance Portfolio is conveniently listed out with stock symbols, last price, change, opening rate, high and low rates in an uncluttered easy to read environment with the option to export data as a csv. Forget about punching in symbols to check, and searching out PR newswires. One of the top features is the Events list. This handy little sidebar displays all the upcoming conference calls, earnings releases and corporate events, and allows you to directly add the events to your calendar so you will never miss the news on your favorite company again.Even if you aren’t a big investor, and just want to watch the market conditions, Google Finance Portfolio’s is a great option. Yahoo! Finance also has the same type of environment. But if you are already a Google Gmail user, Google’s option could be a little easier to integrate into your day to day movements.

I’m totally speechless about the Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street film. It was extremely well done. Of course, since Tim Burton made it, and Johnny Depp along with Helena Bonham Carter star in it. But the gore! Wow! And i thought it was supposed to be a musical? Nonetheless, singing was great but I had to close my eyes towards the end because there was just so much blood! People had to actually leave the theater! They must have just eaten beforehand.Oh, ps, make sure not to try the meat pies. And its rated R for graphic bloody violenceYahoo has a great rundown of 12 movie segments, including some behind the scenes. You can also check out the Sweeney Todd trailer at YouTube.
