Miramax is working out a deal that would stream its collection of over 700 movies to major online services. Amazon, Hulu and Netflix would be among the distributors and the deal could be worth over $100 million. While the deal is not final, Miramax has made digital distribution a top priority. In other news, Barnes & Noble said the Nook color would soon receive a major update, allowing it to run apps and email using the Android operating system. You also get access to the Android Market where you can download all sorts of apps. This e-Reader is about to get a lot more interesting. And finally, Google is internally testing a competitor to iTunes called Google Music. The service was supposed to be released late last year, but they are still in the process of obtaining streaming music rights. Google Music will also stream your PC’s library on the go.
