My Top 3 Most Anticipated Movies for 2007

Here are my top 3 "Most Anticipated Movies for 2007". Watching them on the bigscreen is a must. No piracy here and no "low class" movie house either.

#3 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End




Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) are allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones locker while the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman and Davy Jones, under the control of the East India Trading Company, wreaks havoc across the Seven Seas. Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, they must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Chinese Pirate Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat). Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final, titanic battle as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way, hangs in the balance.

Release Date: May 25, 2007 (worldwide)


#2 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix



As his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry approaches, 15-year-old Harry Potter is in full-blown adolescence, complete with regular outbursts of rage, a nearly debilitating crush, and the blooming of a powerful sense of rebellion. It's been yet another infuriating and boring summer with the despicable Dursleys, this time with minimal contact from our hero's non-Muggle friends from school. Harry is feeling especially edgy at the lack of news from the magic world, wondering when the freshly revived evil Lord Voldemort will strike. Returning to Hogwarts will be a relief--or will it?

Release Date: July 13, 2007 (worldwide)

#1 Spiderman 3


Peter Parker now married to his highschool sweetheart Mary Jane Watson faces new challenges as new enemies want him dead. An alien symbiote fuses with his body and aiding him on his battles. Will this symbiote really help Spiderman or will it be a deadly threat to his existence?

Release Date: May 4, 2007 (worldwide)

Gmail is now open to all



Google's electronic mail service which is previously exclusive to those who receive invites is now open to all.



Google on Wednesday said its Gmail service is now open to anyone who wants an account. Previously the service, which provides users with 2.8GB of e-mail storage space, has been by invitation only.

The service, known as Google Mail in the U.K., has proved very popular. When it was launched, Google raised eyebrows with its practice of indexing the content of e-mails so that the company could place contextual advertisements in them. Nevertheless, early ZDNet UK stories garnered hundreds of reader responses from people looking for free accounts.

Google ceded rights to the Gmail name in the U.K. following a court case with Independent International Investment Research, which registered the trademark Gmail in the time between Google's Web-based e-mail launch and the search firm's own attempt to trademark the Gmail name.

Its woes did not end there: across western Europe, a quiet battle rages on between Google and Daniel Giersch, a German-born venture capitalist who insists he'll never relinquish his 6-year-old trademark registration of "G-mail...und die Post geht richtig ab" (translation: Gmail...and the mail goes right off).

Google said it has also launched an application to let U.K. users access Gmail or Google Mail on their mobiles. The application, which will run on any Java-based phone with data services, synchronizes Google Mail on the phone with the user's Web-based account. E-mail attachments such as photos, PDF and text documents can all be viewed from mobile devices, said Google. The application is free of charge.

Globe Suspends New UnliTXT/UnlimiTXT Rates

NTC ordered Globe Telecoms to suspend its new UnliTXT rates in response to the complaint filed by TXTPower. “This is good news and we hope the order becomes permanent,” said TXTPower spokesperson Anthony Ian Cruz. “This is a blow against those who abuse consumers.”


Cruz credited “consumer protests as expressed in our online petition, the reactions in internet forums and the complaint we immediately filed” as factors in “the price rollback, albeit only temporary, of the Globe price hike.”

“We hope the NTC makes sure Globe follows the order and rolls back to the previous rates immediately,” said Cruz. “We will prepare for a public hearing to demolish Globe’s arguments and show why keeping unlimited text messaging rates at the lowest possible levels is a legitimate pro-consumer and pro-business move.”
