While we're choking on movies like Short Circuit for our cellphones, the Italians are getting the good shit from cell carrier Hutchinson H3G. If you've got a 3G phone, the company will soon let you view first-run movies just 10 days after they're released in theaters. Looks like Memoirs of a Geisha will be available on December 27th! Not bad. Of course, you'll be paying $10.50 for this experience, so the next question would have to be: why not just go to the movies and see it on the big screen? And really, don't the Italians already get movies about six months after we do here in the US anyhow? Oh well, why burst their bubble, huh?
