An iPad Classic...

...or, rather, a classic on the iPad.

That's right. I took the progressive new media plunge today.

The idea of stuffing conventional moving image experiences onto the very small screen has been picked apart by the critical establishment for a few years, but I'm certainly open to it. Transportable cinema didn't show up out of the blue, after all, so the prospects of watching "The Rules of the Game" in this setting may imply less radical change than many people think. Then again, I do wonder what, say, DeMille would have thought about the whole movie-on-cat thing.
