Hollywood Finally Set to Allow "Buy Once, Watch Anywhere'?

The New York Times is reporting that one of the holy grails of digital media, the ability to buy a piece of content like a movie once and watch it on all your devices, from iPhone to iPod to Apple TV to Xbox 360 to PS3 to PC might actually be coming our way via the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE). Currently 5 major studios including Warners, NBC Universal, Sony, Paramount, and Fox (but not Disney) are working on DECE with Microsoft, Cisco, Comcast, Intel and Best Buy, and are set to add Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Netflix, Tesco, Cox Communications, Liberty Global and others (but not Apple) to the list.

Under the proposed system, proof of digital purchases would be stored online in a so-called rights locker, and consumers would be permitted to play the movies they bought or rented on any DECE-compatible device.

It's nothing more than a quartet of lines in a 2010 Happy New Year Note, but it signals that yet another high profile game designer -- in this case Final Fantasy's Hironobu Sakaguchi -- has iPhone on his mind:

Best of Smartphone Experts, 3 Jan 2010

Last week was a good one as usual for SPE, but next week we'll be blowing the walls out for CES: expect plenty of CES coverage from all of our sites. This year we'll have our biggest team ever at the show and are pumped up.

Was the iPhone the Gadget of the Decade?

It wouldn't be polite for TiPb to proclaim our signature device, Apple's iPhone, the gadget of the decade -- but luckily we don't have to as it's one of the more common memes circulating the 'net as we pass from the 00's to the 10's.

If the 2000s were about going from portable to mobile, then the iPhone certainly made the mobile mainstream.
