State clear to negotiate with Vinod Khosla over Martin's Beach access


    A bill to have California negotiate with Silicon Valley billionaire Vinod Khosla over Martin's Beach access has been signed by the governor.
    State negotiators are authorized to discuss with Khosla about reopening the only access road to the secluded Martin's Beach near Half Moon Bay.
    That road - used by beach goers for over a century - has been closed by Khosla since 2008.
    Under the legislation by local State senator Jerry Hill, the state can use eminent domain to acquire right of way if negotiations fall through.
    The new legislation follows a court decision saying Khosla would need permission from the state Coastal Commission to close the beach access road.  Full Story

Netflix to stream "Crouching Tiger" sequel at same time as IMAX screenings


    The return of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" to the big screen represents a big move by Netflix: streaming a new film at the same time it appears in theaters.
    It's a move that several analysts see as the biggest blow yet to the Hollywood pratice of "windowing," or opening a movie in theaters before it's available on other media.
    "The Green Legend", which has Michelle Yeoh returning to her role as Yu Shu-Lien in "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon", will debut on BOTH Netflix and select IMAX screen around the world in late August of next year.  Full Story
