US Mint releases First Presidential $1 Coin in Series

$1 coin 1st in series George Washington

The US mint releases the first $1 coins in a series of Presidents of the United States. These new coins are intended for use in commerce as well as for collecting. To launch the new coins New Yorkers are invited to exchange their old paper dollar bills for the new dollar coin at Grand Central Terminal.

The first dollar coin has President George Washington. The coin is golden color with four coins with different presidents being announced each year. This year you will also see the release of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison on the new dollar coins.

On the flip side of the coin will have an image of the Statue of Liberty on the edge of the coin the coin will have an inscription saying “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust.” Engravings on the edge of the coin haven’t happened since the 1930’s. It brings back memories of my Grandma giving out silver dollars to us as a gift. These coins could be quite collectible.

Wal-Mart Gets Into Movie Download Business – Films and TV shows Will Be Sold For Less Than Apple iTunes – Amazon Also Jumps Into Downloads

Download Website

Wal-Mart has already been in the music download business, but on Tuesday the retail giant has gone into the movie download business as well. So far their beta version is only offering around 3,000 movies and TV shows, but Wal-Mart hopes to add more content to their list.

Their repertoire includes movies from all of the major studios and some TV networks, including Fox Broadcasting. So far they have not included shows from ABC, CBS or NBC, but plans to assimilate them as well.

They sold their music downloads at a lower cost compared to rivals including Apple, and will likely do the same with their movies. So far many studios have resisted offering their movies through iTunes because Apple insisted on listing all of their movies for one price. Apple has only signed The Walt Disney Co. and Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Studios.

Apple Inc. introduced their state-of-the-art iPhone Tuesday which combines three devices into one. The iPhone has internet access, including browsing capabilities, maps, and email. The gadget is also an iPod with touch controls and a widescreen. The iPhone is also a phone of course, but Apple forgot to integrate a camera.

The company made their device ultra-thin and lightweight. The large “multi-touch” interface allows you control everything with your finger tips. Apple says this mobile device ushers in an era of “software power and sophistication never before seen”.

But there are already some problems. It appears that Cisco has trademarked and owns the name of their new phone. Cisco has the rights to the iPhone name. Apple has been in negotiations with Cisco for the rights and expects to sign an agreement soon.
