Disney makes good use of their monorail system for some new ads. Tron-orails!Disney makes good use of their monorail system for some new ads. Tron-orails!

This is some particularly clever advertising from the folks over at Disney for the upcoming reboot of Tron (coming out December 17t h).  Of course the effect may be lost if the monorail happens to be traveling in the opposite direction of the ad but that's a minor detail.

New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.

It's easy to miss just by viewing the ad but the folks over at The Unofficial Apple Blog have spotted a frame of the commercial that indeed shows off some pricing. So, want to know what you'll be paying for books on the iPad? Probably around $12-$14 bucks a pop.
