Chardish writes: "Variety is reporting that longtime Fox News film blogger Roger Friedman has been possibly fired for posting a positive review of the leaked workprint of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". Friedman claims he has not been terminated, though his review was taken down by Fox News and his blog has remained silent since Friday. The film is being distributed by 20th Century Fox, which, unsurprisingly, is owned by the same parent company as Fox News. Friedman's original review (which is now gone from Google's cache) has been decried by some within the fan community, with Ain't It Cool News calling it "criminally irresponsible.""

BodySurf is a (somewhat lengthy) GlovePIE script that manipulates the input of the Balance Board to work with the PC music game Audiosurf. It's fairly sophisticated, and includes Wiimote motion controls, special controls for each character, weight calibration, and a few play options."

No word on whether this will be an opt-in program. YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley says that the program will be rolled out in the coming months."
