TechWatch 2006

2006 - New Versions of Kong's Script: * He's always been king of his world, but we'll teach him fear. * Don't be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel. * Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty that killed the beast. In the 2006 remake of King Kong there are a number of different endings. Some of the people at the foot of the Empire State Building will be rooting for Kong…some for the toy airplanes…some for Fay. But most folks? They'll go home saying, "yeah it was a pretty good movie…and it was cheap! Heck in New York we've got lots of big gorillas."

What Isn't Going To Happen In 2006

Well, we certainly will not see an amicable solution between HD DVD and Blu-ray DVD formats. Set top boxes will not be replaced by media center PCs and other emerging devices in 2006. Another hot button topic is rights management and consumer fair use. The industry will not see unanimous solutions or resolutions in this regard either.
