Quick Takes:

Parks and Resorts: You know how you save all of the shampoo bottles from your Disney Resort so you can bring them home and act like your vacation never ended because you have Mickey shampoo?  Well now you don't have to raise a red flag at airport screenings because Disney launched a new webstie; www.disneyresortcollection.com (part of the Go network).  This website allows you to by, beds, bedding, decor, and bath products that can be found at Disney resorts around the globe.  So stop stealing the robes, and buy one legit.  Now if only I could watch Company Clips at home while I am tucked in to my Disney Resorts sheets on my Disney Resorts bed. 

Media Networks: ABC reached an agreement with its affiliates to allow for cable operators and satellite providers to add ABC On Demand to their lineups.  The affiliates will get to air local ads in addition to the network adds.  So don't fear, your local car dealers will still be showing you how special a thirty second television spot can be.  ABC also got the right to repurpose their programming on other venues such as XBOX Live, and iTunes.  This aggreement allows for ABC to persue sharing their content in many new ways as we continue the digital revolution.  If only Michael Eisner thought about asking permission to repurpose ABC programming on ABC Family before he bought ABC Family and realized he couldn't.  WOOPS

Consumer Products: Baby Einstein kicked off a new marketing campaign with a new website at www.babyeinstein.com  The new look is supposed to showcase, "the power of moms".  My mom had all sorts of powers like eyes in the back of her head and the power to know when I did something bad.  These super powers will now be showcased on the website where moms can discuss their powers with other moms.  Think of it as a "Hall of Justice" but instead of for the Super Friends, it is for moms.

Video of the Day: Brad Bird thanks everyone at Pixar on the Oscar.com "Thank You Cam"  I would like to thank Brad Bird for teaching me my ABCs.  Oh wait, that was Big Bird.  My bad
