Star Trek and cell phones

Did you know that the "communicator" in "Star Trek" the original 1960's TV series was the inspiration for designers on flip phones, cell phones and even remote controls? Hand phasers were used as inspiration by designers of hand held game interfaces. (Photo from Comic-con).

For those born after 1970, did you know that there were only a few very expensive cordless short distance home phones and no cell phones when the first "Star Trek" was filmed. Cell phones, around the time of the first Lethal Weapon required car batter sized units you carried like a briefcase, or to be attached to your car by a cord. The first real "hand held cell phones" looked like bricks, far from the iPhone, smart phone or small disposables we use today.

A return to Monday tradition for this famed statue?

The Oscars may return to Monday night's,
where ratings were higher and audiences
 more Oscar friendly, according to
the Hollywood Reporter
and The Wrap.

The truth is the Academy Awards
were on Mondays because they are
a traditional dark theater night
(meaning legitimate stage theater night)
and easier for actors and to
book a theater. Today venues
are more common and the link
between film and stage less obvious.

The reason they may switch
from Sunday' to Mondays
is an interesting one. Football.
The NFL is considering changes
in number of games and season
effective in 2012. This could make a move to
Mondays starting in 2013 (part of the NFL 2012-2013 season).
