Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.

Put me in the 'meh' column for this trailer, it just does nothing for me. I was however suprised to see that this installment with bring about the 'epic conclusion' of a series inspired by a comic book, then made into a television show, then made into a movie, then made into a cartoon, then remade into yet another series of movies. Doesn't really feel all that conclusive.

It's currently a bigger version of the teaser poster but one would expect that other content would be popping up there shortly.

YouTube experimenting with the new design dubbed Cosmic Panda.YouTube experimenting with the new design dubbed Cosmic Panda.

I had a chance to try this out last night and I liked the experience. The new design seems to take a couple cues from Hulu and other video sites by utilizing a darker background to make the video pop more. The other neat thing is that the comments will scroll while keeping the video locked to the top of screen and in view. That is surely a welcome change for those who enjoy reading inane YouTube comments. You can try it out for yourself over yonder.

Have a peek at some near-final screenshots of the Windows Phone 7 interface.Have a peek at some near-final screenshots of the Windows Phone 7 interface.

I find parts of this user interface to be very depressing (granted it's not final but near-final sounds like their pretty close). The data entry screens are bland, colorless, and lifeless. Almost as if you're signing a death warrant on someone when you want to add them as a contact. Not very inviting.

Next Batman installment might be shot entirely in IMAX, but probably not.Next Batman installment might be shot entirely in IMAX, but probably not.

I gather that Christopher Nolan would probably have to agree to even make a third Batman movie first. Also, shooting in IMAX seems to be financially unrealistic as one reel can only hold two and half minutes of footage. Wow.

The darker side of Disney as explored by the folks at Neatorama.The darker side of Disney as explored by the folks at Neatorama.

Disney isn’t always the Happiest Place on Earth. The parks sometimes harbor deep, dark secrets – and we’re not talking the Haunted Mansion or the Tower of Terror.
