7/5     Just saw Wall-E.  Beautiful movie.  Environmental message was vague
        enough to appeal to anyone.  "Stay the course" was a bit heavy-handed.
        Overall, thumbs up.
        \_ I totally agree, it was very nicely done.  If the stupid right-
           wingers who are up in arms about how bad it is maybe they should
           open their eyes and take a look at how much garbage our society
           produces in a day. -mrauser
           \_ I've got to admit, it takes serious balls for Disney to put
              out a movie attacking our consumerist culture.
              \_ I find it pretty amusing how Steve Jobs' company's vision of
                 the beautiful robot was basically an ipod.
                 \_ not disagreeing with you, but it was Ives who designed Eve.
                    must add integrated plasma rifle to next iPhone.
                    \_ I think that's a metaphor about what happens if you
                       cross Apple.
                       "I wanted Eve to be high-end technology - no expense
                       spared - and I wanted it to be seamless and for the
                       technology to be sort of hidden and subcutaneous,"
                       Andrew Stanton, Wall-E's director, told Fortune. "The
                       more I started describing it, the more I realized I was
                       pretty much describing the Apple playbook for design."
                 \_ I thought a lot of designs looked to have at least some
                    inspiration/influence from Portal, not to mention the short
                    film before the feature film.

7/6     What's a good DLNA server that's free?
        \_ []
           \_ I just tried FUPPES and TVersity (free) and neither one of
              the servers were recognized by my new Sony Bravia Z4100 TV.
              What's up with that?
