Weston goes into showbusiness
Los Santos's most prominent financial guru and investor Devin Weston made a typically unexpected move yesterday. Just as conventional wisdom is moving out of movies in general and Vinewood studios in particular, Mr Weston bought a significant stake in legendary 'mini major' Richards Majestic. Founded in 1929 by current head honcho, Solomon Richards' late father David, Richards Majestic has endured turbulent times as a string of remakes, rom coms and super hero pictures have bombed at the box office. The result - Richards Majestic, the last true independent film studio - is now at least in part, under the ownership of a man who knows how to make money, if not movies. Mr. Weston told our reporter "I could not be happier. I love this town and now I've finally made an investment in its biggest industry. Richards Majestic has two movies currently in production; "Meltdown" and "Deep Inside". We expect to make money with both. I couldn't hope to learn from a better teacher than Solomon Richards, but I'm also hoping he can learn a thing or two from me."
Big Brother in your bathroom?
A new online feature by Internet search juggernaut Eyefind has some privacy experts concerned. Eyefind Street Maps uses thermal and high resonance imaging to scan every house inside and out as an Eyefind truck travels down the street. High resolution images of the inside of your home are then viewable for anyone to see. "I like it," says resident Mindy Thompson. "It lets all your friends see what your place looks like." The online outcry has been from so called privacy experts. Liberal lawmakers heralded the move. "This is another great example of how Eyefind has successfully monetized our private information. They've taken every TV, film, song and even picture of the inside of our homes and monetized it for their gain. It's a true American success story," said Representative Richard Eggers.
