North vs. South (and video iPods)

Two quick pointers to pieces of mine that appear in newspapers today on opposite coasts:

    - In the San Jose Mercury News, I write about the contentious relationship between Silicon Valley and Hollywood. I like the headline they wrote for the piece: "This could be a beautiful friendship."

    - In the Boston Globe, I start a new monthly column called Entertainment 2.0. The first one focuses on the revolutionary potential of Apple's video iPod. "...[A]s holiday shoppers evaluate Apple's new $299 video-capable iPod, the question hanging over the entertainment industry is whether the iPod can do for motion pictures what it did for music. Does its arrival signal a transition from the era of scheduled TV, DVDs, and videotapes to the age of Internet downloads?"
