Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene: Too Fast & Too Serious

Written on September 29, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene are like bitten by the 'Love Bug'. Good combination it might be: vampire hottie meets Camp Rock hottie, there might be nothing wrong.

Looks like Joe Jonas and Twilight star-girlfriend Ashley Greene is getting pretty serious. Why? Just two months into the dating game, Joe has already met Ashley’s parents.

The sleep overs, the holding hands, the whispering of sweet nothings are really endearing. But to think that you just started dating last July and you two are in Hollywood? It’s a fast move.

Ashley and Joe was first seen on the red carpet premiere of the film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in London. Ashley plays Robert Pattinson’s vampire sibling. This took place last July 1. So now it is September, and it might be the two are rushing things way too fast.

Google, Hollywood and Movie Rentals on YouTube

Written on August 30, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

This time it is not Google, it is Hollywood. The search giant has been pushing for pay-per-view movie rentals as long as we know, but bigwigs from the Tinseltown are clamoring for a year-end launch out of their increasing enthusiasm.

As we write, a deal between Google and Hollywood is presumably in the works to launch a streaming movie rental site by the end of 2010. It will be either integrated with or linked to YouTube, where Google will bank on its search and video popularity to attract patronage of the new service.

The anticipation for Google’s pay-per-view service is heightened by the reported release of Apple TV’s new version. Many are waiting for Google’s response. As of late, the big fish on the upcoming service is its U.S. availability and rental price starting at $5, which seems too high. The prices on iTunes and Amazon Video on Demand only reach almost a half of that, and Google is known to price its products in the ranges of its competitors’ price.

There have been presumably a dry run at YouTube months ago, where a handful of independent films from the Sundance Film Festival were rented out. Though reports said it flopped financially, Google is still expanding its service by including mainstream titles on its list. With a willing partner like the studios, including plans of major promotions, let us hope Google’s new and anticipated profit-making machine do not make popcorns instead.
