When we stopped by actor Tom Noonan’s table at Fan Expo, we weren’t expecting to get one of our favourite quotes from the whole event. That’s just what he delivered though, when we asked him his take on movie remakes, when he compares them to someone sleeping with your girlfriend, though he’s a bit more blunt about it…

Microsoft’s Zune Music services have always been a very US centric brand, with rumours that it would come to Canada swirling for a couple of years. The last we heard, it was originally going to show up here back in the spring of this year. While the Zune video marketplace has been available in Canada for some time, allowing users to rent and buy TV and film content via their PCs or Xbox 360s, the iTunes competitor has been bereft of, well… tunes, until now.
Sometimes the best things at a convention are the most random. One of those moments was while Ryan and John were getting ready to go in after picking up their passes. It just so happened that it was the same time Lance Henriksen was out front taking a break from signing copies of his book and doing the convention guest thing.
It’s that time of year again, when nerds and geeks of all stripes descend on Toronto and congregate at the shrine of pop culture known as Fan Expo. To alleviate the major congestion problems of last year, the expo is returning to the larger South Building of the Metro Convention Centre, and has added a fourth day to the event.
Fan Expo 2011 runs from August 25th to 28th, and you can catch all the details in the press release below…

Much has been said of the Boxee Box, D-link’s fledgling foray into the world of home theatre set-top boxes, running the gamut from “streamlined” and “Polished” (agreed!) to “Disappointing” (…not so much). While it’s true that D-link’s little box has been lacking in some key areas (cough cough MUSIC PLAYER cough), when it comes to ease of use and across-the-board file compatibility, Boxee sits in a class that is simply untouchable by heavy hitters like GoogleTV, Roku, and especially AppleTV.
Now, after a scant 6 months, Boxee has widened that gap …
If you haven’t already seen the HBO series Game Of Thrones, which airs in the US and Canada, I can’t highly recommend it enough. Based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy series of novels, the setting is more medival earth in a lot of ways compared to most sword and sorcery fare. It also has an amazing title sequence which stands as a work of art in its own right.
It’s been a busy week for Netflix, especially when it comes to the Canadian market. When they launched in Canada last fall with its streaming only service, some people were skeptical, as the inital library of titles was a little bit thin, especially without the support of physical media rentals. Since then, the company has continued to add both TV and film titles at a fairly brisk pace. Another concern for many was the restictive caps most Canadian internet users face from their providers.
It’s no secret that there are Boxee Box fans here at RGB. The coolest looking little media player has proven itself to be a very flexible workhorse. Today, Boxee CEO Avner Ronen posted that the newest update has started rolling out, and with it, the long-awaited Netflix compatibility for both the US and Canada.
