The Incredible is not the US version of the Desire. Desire is more similar to the Nexus One.

Quick survey shows that:
N1, Motorola Droid, Droid Incredible - all have Google on the chassis
Samsung Captivate (AT&T US version of Galaxy S) - Doesn't say Google on the chassis (But does come with Google apps)

Universal Lands Rights To Asteroids Movie 194 194

It seems Universal Studios has won the highly sought-after movie rights to the 1979 Atari game Asteroids. Disney's Matthew Lopez will be writing the adaptation, having previously worked on the scripts for Bedtime Stories, The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Race to Witch Mountain. The NY Times is skeptical about Hollywood's ability to do right by the 30-year-old game, already imagining what a director like Michael Bay would do with it: "In this $300 million, three-and-a-half hour spectacle, loud and expensive computer simulations of large boulders crashing into one another are briefly interrupted by the hilarious antics of Chip and Gravel, two living rocks with gold teeth who speak in hip-hop slang, and the nonstop shouting of John Turturro."

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
