A useful tool or a distraction?
IMDb and Amazon’s Kindle Fire are bringing us “X-Ray for Movies.” Tap on the screen of a movie page, and you can see the names and filmographies of each of the actors. The X-Ray program, exclusive to Kindle Fire, is backed with over 100 million data items from IMDb’s resources.
IMDb founder and CEO Col Needham says it’s a revolution twenty years in the making: “X-Ray for Movies revolutionizes the way we watch movies. This is the culmination of everything we’ve been working on for over twenty years and is the result of a combination of sophisticated technology and old-fashioned hard work. ”
