Today in Techland: Peter brought us all the specs of Google’s Buzz – a new system that attempts to be Twitter/Facebook/Flickr/YouTube/Wave/GChat all in one. Mike Williams talked comics we’re reading this week, and Steve caught up with Wolfman director Joe Johnston. It’s turning out to be a good week.

More Zombies … in 3D. Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese talk about the sequel to MTV, saying that they’re not sure exactly where they’ll take the story, but that they love the idea of writing for 3D. “We want you to be looking down at your popcorn to make sure there isn’t blood on it,” Reese said laughingly. “There will be a lot of fluids flying!”

iPhoto no more. Today, Apple announced the release of it’s latest photo software, Aperture 3, that will build on services provided with iPhoto ’09. New features include: Brushes for painting image adjustments and Adjustment Presets that will apply a specific style or look to the image in one click. Aperture 3 will sell for $199 through the Apple Store online and through Apple retailers, though existing Aperture users may upgrade for $99.

HAHAHA. Listen to the voice of Darth Vader before James Earl Jones’ voice over. Oh golly, it’s great.

Ugh, great. Analysts are predicting that Apple will continue its exclusive contract with AT&T through 2010, according to the Apple Insider. Previously, there had been rumors that Apple had planned to break the deal sometime this summer to work with Verizon, too.
