'Indiana Jones' is Coming to Blu-ray This Fall
Practically everyone that watches Blu-ray movies has a wishlist of the titles they'd like to see finally come out, and you'll find Spielberg's blockbusters on most of those list. 'Jurassic Park' came to Blu-ray recently and 'Jaws' is announced - though the release date is a month and a half past the 4th of July which would have been much better timing.  It was announced yesterday that fans of the legendary whip-slinging adventurer Indiana Jones will be able to get their fix this fall.

Panasonic is Adding Dragon Voice Control to its TVs
Panasonic has announced that they'll be teaming up with Nuance to bring Dragon TV voice control to their sets.

The Super Bowl Stream Breaks Records but Doesn't Work Too Well
NBC and the NFL made headlines across the internet when they announced that Super Bowl XLVI would be streamed online.  The planned coverage was impressive, giving fans access to different commentary, alternate camera angles and more.  It brought in 2.1 million unique viewers which certainly made the folks that put it on very happy indeed.
