One More Thing: Nokia tries to diss the iPhone 5
Ain't no party like a Nokia diss party

Spam - There's a new CAPTCHA in town, which hopes to educate you about human rights violations around the world while simultaneously confirming that you are not a spam-spewing bot.

Gone to seed - Amazon's getting into the movie-making business. It's a family affair, as the film arm, Amazon Studios, has optioned the movie rights to the Amazon-published horror e-novel, Seed. There's no guarantee that Seed will actually make it to the silver screen, but if it does, Amazon will be crowd-sourcing feedback every step of the way. [TechCrunch]

Digicon - The BFI is going to digitise 10,000 films over the next five years and put them online for all to see, using a player it has imaginatively dubbed the BFI Player. As well as all that excellent online film action, it is working with Samsung on a TV application that will showcase exclusive bits and pieces from the London Film Festival, among other events.
