Techcrunch is reporting that Flixster bought an iPhone application called Movies.app last week, and re-released it last night. It’s basically an app that shows movie times, has maps to local theaters, and lets you watch movie trailers.
I’m a little surprised that Flixster went out and bought the App, when it could have been developed internally. Maybe they learned a thing or two from the Hasbro vs Scrabbulous fight – if you see a great program, buy it. Now Flixster has a popular app under it’s umbrella. Hasbro has a replacement app for Scrabbulous, but I hear it’s not as popular.
Update Techcrunch says that Scrabbulous has been taken down world-wide now…

When I was a kid, someone told me that I couldn’t fold a piece of paper in half 10 times. I think a lot of kids have tried this over the years. (Everyone failed).
Well, one girl was told she’d get extra credit if she was able to do it, so she figured out the formula and the way to fold paper in half 12 times.

Braid is out now through XBox Live Arcade and will be out for the PC in the future.

Why “Future Steve”?
I write down a lot of notes about technology things I should go check out later. When you think about it, writing notes to yourself (which is pretty much what blogging is, at least for the majority of blogs) is really writing to a future version of you.
In my case, I’m writing them to Future Steve.
