'Star Wars Episode 7' And Disney: Five burning questions

Not long ago, here, in a galaxy far, Disney bought Lucasfilm, and the new "Star Wars" film was born. Disney latest acquisition and the announcement of "Star Wars Episode 7" which is easily one of the most energy and polarization of the call in the history of pop culture. Seventh film in the series "Star Wars" long rumored, and will soon become a reality, under the supervision of Disney no less. But the news just hours old, many questions still surround the Jedi back to the big screen. Here are five of them. Call Function The implications of "Episode 7" prequel titles put the land and the original trilogy. Grass scary for several reasons, the main ... well, that's coming back? Harrison Ford is hard to imagine boarding the coldness gave Han Solo reprise of "Star Wars" in recent years, but Millennium Falcon cargo box on their doorstep. It is easy to see how the other franchise really - as C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels or Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew - could return without the promise of equal pay. There is also a possibility that he feared: remodeling. We shudder to think. Play these By The Book Although theater history ends with "Return of the Jedi", "Star Wars" saga continues in the way of novels, comics, video games and more. There are countless stories of adventure kept records of Luke Skywalker and his friends from me - but Disney will feel obliged to respect the continuity is known only to the most dedicated "Star Wars" fans, or they can take their own histories to bear when a general public is bigger? How about George? Many fans believe that the founder of the franchise should be an example to the ongoing story. Others, like they were burned by the prequel trilogy and seemingly endless Lucas "Star Wars" changes, the possibility YUB-nubbing Ewok in their finery now. No matter how involved Lucas on, one thing is clear: simply handed the keys to one of the biggest film franchises of all time with one of the best of all time. To riff Darth Vader in his own words, Luke is a student, and Mickey is a master now. Who George again? If Lucas was not repping rebellion, Disney is entering the spotlight franchise? A big name is needed to lead the "Star Wars" in the future, someone with name recognition, people with facts geek community. "Star Trek" J. J. Helmer Abrams is obvious, but is committed otherwise, options such as "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon - though will have their hands full with their own Disney franchise. Regardless of the choice of Disney, Joe can not just be a director, a name they need to convince the fans to be one of the most important stories of all time genre is in good hands. Does this press release, right? Is the Empire wins? Like, if Luke and Leia and Han and lack any and everything that is wrong with the world today? No go. Disney "Star Wars" is a scary idea, of course, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Heck, even a good one. Think of the possibilities: the Pixar animation "The Wars" thread, does not change the original trilogy on Blu-ray (where Luke stubborn at this point, Disney will only see the dollar signs), and a new adventure starring some of the most iconic characters in film history. More "Star Wars" came with a lot of risk, but also a lot of potential reward. As Yoda so clever is called "... Do not treat or "For better or worse, Disney did. And that takes some serious balls spatial size.

NBC network will broadcast English Premier League under $ 250 million, three years from next season. Show all matches most popular football league in the world, taking the coverage outside Fox and ESPN. "The Barclays Premier League was the first football league in the world, and on the cusp of an exponential growth in popularity here in the U.S.," said NBC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus Sunday. The company has taken the Major League Soccer last year and had success with broadcasting football during the London Olympics. The criticism for the use of tape delay, due to the time difference in the Olympics, NBC will not to play in the Premier League, said Lazarus. English dissemination is critical to the cable channel NBC Sports Network, Telemundo and mun2 to be used for coverage of Spain. English-language broadcast network NBC Live six games of the week. One or two other channels cable companies are also used, Lazarus said, but have not yet determined the schedule evaluated. Other games will be broadcast live online. The company is trying to expand the audience of NBC Sports Network, which was renamed from Versus after its owner, Comcast Corp., took over NBCUniversal. "I think we have a set of assets with a unique appeal of men who thrive very attractive to advertisers and attractive to cable operators," says Lazarus. And football is a potential growth area for most of the allowances under the contract in the sport, but NBC recently signed an agreement with Formula One car racing series. NBC Sports Network is the largest property NHL, running the same season in English football. EPL is an excellent complement to the hockey network coverage, Lazarus, adding live football matches in the morning and afternoon to primetime broadcast of the NHL.

Google Nexus 4: A closer look at the new flagship Android phone

Become a fan of Android is a bit like a kid in a candy store right now. Along with the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and release all the new features offered, Google has officially unveiled two new devices Nexus: Nexus 4, the new flagship phone which was very unexpected, Nexus 10, a high-end 10-inch tablet made by Samsung. We are a close look at the Nexus 4, right? This phone combines the basic structure of its own design sense LG Optimus M with Google Android software and pure. Prepare, band: Telephone agree to provide true Android experience - and is likely to deliver the goods. Nexus 4: LG hardware design Google LG Google NexusYou clearly see the LG Optimus Foundation Nexus G 4, but make no mistake about it: This is the core Nexus phone. The Nexus 4 stones 4.7 cm. True HD IP familiar display Nexus style curved glass. At first glance, the shape actually resembles the Galaxy Nexus that preceded it. Think about the size? With Nexus four 2.7-inch x 5.3 and 0.36. Thick. It weighs 4.9 oz. Even though the screen is larger, and in fact it does about the same size and weight as the Galaxy Nexus - just SKOSH hair thicker and heavier, but probably not enough to be too obvious. Larger screen is far from the only thing that separates you new Nexus younger, however. In general, this line of LG developed the device feels more solid and durable than the plasticky style approach favored by Samsung. With Nexus 4 Googley put a surprising twist in the design of LG phones back, with patterns, premium materials like sleek classic look wallpaper Nexus. Apart from the aesthetic exterior, Nexus 4 screen has a resolution of 1280 x 768 at 320ppi, all protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Based on the time I spend Optimus M, which uses the same screen technology, I hope the quality of the picture in a beautiful wild. And that's just the beginning. Nexus 4: Power, power, power LG Nexus 4Under its hood, the new Nexus 4 packs a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM complete. With this configuration, Optimus zoom G along as fast as any other Android phone I've ever seen, pure software joins Google should provide comparable - and probably better - ridiculous rate. With Nexus 4 is an 8-megapixel camera - a big step in the 5-megapixel lens Galaxy Nexus, which is widely seen the Achilles heel. If Optimus G is any indication, I suspect the camera on the Nexus 4 good, though perhaps not good in the camera so high-end that is used in mobile phones like HTC X and A S. Fourth Nexus One also features a 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front for video chat and all the self-nudie photos always welcome (perverted silly, silly). With Nexus 4 with either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, and - following the typical pattern of Nexus - unfortunately does not support SD cards. Wireless charging cradle, however, and it looks very delicate area wireless charging (yes, sphere) accessories. With Nexus 4 is a 2100mAh battery listing 15.3 hours of talk time and 390 hours standby. Nexus 4: The core problem Okay, let's get to the point: Google is primarily focused on direct sales of Nexus, release 4 which is not a big surprise after the disaster Verizon Galaxy Nexus. You will be able to grab the version GSM / HSPA + phone on November 13 Google Play Store. (There are versions of LTE -. Honcho Android chief Andy Rubin anything described as making "tactical") Translation? For those of us in the U.S., the phone will work on any T-Mobile or AT & T HSPA + 4G speeds, levels, I would buy the absolute Google and then use either your current plan or a new plan. You can also choose to use it with a prepaid smart plan - something I highly recommend considering. 8 GB version of the device will be available for $ 300 and the 16GB version for $ 350. The phone will be launched in the U.S., UK, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Australia, says Google Europe, Central America and South America, Asia, CIS and the Middle East will continue later this month. (In the U.S., T-Mobile will also be selling the 16GB version of the phone for $ 200 with a new two-year contract. Between you and me, however, most people will do better by buying direct Google and then select the appropriate use of plants with no contract) . Power TwitterSome Android start the week, huh? And we're just scratching the surface. I'm going to spend a lot of time in Nexus 4 and 10 by Nexus in the coming days and share my detailed hand impressions with you soon.
