Digital movies and high-tech parking meters

WALT DISNEY CO. will be the first movie studio to help finance the digital distribution of its movies. They want to bring movie theaters into the electronic age and phase out traditional film. Why? Because digital pictures are sharp and will not scratch, fade or degrade like film.

Disney’s Buena Vista Pictures Distribution plans for “150 new digital movie screens to be up by year’s end and as many as 4,000 by the end of 2007”

HIGH-TECH PARKING METERS are appearing in parts of southern California. The new meters are being tried out in West Hollywood and will take credit or ATM cards.

There are approximately 5 million traditional meters in the United States. The new meters will allow you to swipe your credit or ATM card in a slot to pay for parking and will then give you a receipt indicating where you are parked, how much you paid and when the meter will expire. There is also a phone number you may call to pay for more parking.

    The parking meters are a good idea.
