So, it would seem that the future of new media entertainment is brought to you by the letter "u".
To wit: first came Hulu. Next comes Vudu, a new fangled high tech box that's connected to the Intertube. It delivers hi-def movies to your television.
In a recent article about this magical box with knobs, the New York Times announced: "In a major shift in movie distribution, a high-definition version of the hit ''The Bourne Ultimatum'' will be released through Vudu Inc.'s online service Tuesday -- the same day the DVD comes out."
