Hello everyone and welcome to the SSWL Network news desk. We are posting this to let you all know that we are taking this week off. However, we will be posting a non-audio version of the show later this week. Basically that means we will have a full rundown (movie/video game/tech news, flix we pix, other randomness, etc.) of what we usually cover,  but without the audio. So keep checking back  for that and thanks for reading/listening.

Recently I just read on the TechCrunch that Amazon has been working on a 7-inch touch screen tablet.   This will be the first full-color kindle screen.  The Movie player will be Amazons Instant Video Player and the Music will be Amazon’s Cloud Base player.  There will be no Android Market Place on this or, Google apps either.  Although the article says “My Understanding is that the Kindle OS was Built on top of some version of Android prior to 2.2 and Amazon will keep building on top of that over time.”  So I’m sure in time we will see some sort of Google Apps in the future if they really want to stay in the game against the other tables on the market.  The Amazon Tablet could be released in October with a bigger version of it coming out next year Q1.

From the sounds of it, I understand that they’re building this around the Android OS with the Kindle OS in mind, but I think if Amazon really would like to compete with other companies, they should just make their own Operating System.  On the bright side of things, I am very interested to see what they do.

What is your take in all this?  Are you looking forward to it?  Will you buy one?  Comment Below.  You can read the full Amazon Tablet Review over at TechCrunch…..Here.  For even more information.

It took 1.5 years in the making but Dan Trachtenberg of the Tottaly Rad Show released his Short of Portal: No Escape Based on the Video Game from Valve.  As you guys know (Especially from this weeks episode) I love the Portal Games.  That being said, this is a fantastic short that I hope someone in Hollywood sees and funds for a movie or even a webseries like they did with Mortal Kombat.  Check out the short below.

It’s been about five years since Brian De Palma (Scarface, Mission: Impossible) has made a new movie and it looks like he is back to direct a thriller called The Key Man.  The film is being written by Joby Harold (Army of the Dead) Deadline.com says “It’s about a single father who’s targeted by U.S. government agents because his body contains answers to important national secrets.”

Mission: Impossible was the first Brian De Palma movie I saw.  I know he is most very famous for Scarface but as a close friend of mind often says “Haven’t Seen it!”  But, I will be seeing it soon as it is coming to theaters again on August 31. It would be great to see it on the big screen for the first time.
