Apple CEO Steve Jobs has taken the No. 2 spot in this year’s MediaGuardian 100 list. “Jobs is shaking up the established order in the media industry, with the annual MediaGuardian 100 power list today showing him leapfrogging News Corp mogul Rupert Murdoch into second place.” BBC director general Mark Thompson took the top spot.
The Hollywood Reporter has an extensive article on Amazon’s forthcoming download-to-own movie service. “According to industry sources, the service will employ similar software to the Amazon Shorts function, which allows a customer to acquire a portion of a book for 49 cents, view it, download the file as a PDF to a computer, e-mail it and store it permanently in their own digital locker.”
Two University of Central Florida film school grads are using video iPods for a new exhibit at the Orlando Museum of Art by Miami artist Edouard Duval Carrie. “The filmmakers have created an iPod audio/video guided tour that not only provides a one-on-one conversation with Carrie, but also contains information about the artist and his creative process, and includes commentary by other experts to help exhibit-goers understand what they are seeing.”
