'Avatar' Spurs Record-Breaking Weekend, MobileMe Users Suffer Outage

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines....
  • James Cameron's 3-D epic 'Avatar' generated more than $75 million in ticket sales over the weekend, helping this past weekend to become the most successful in Hollywood history. 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Up in the Air' also contributed to the $278 million in total sales. [From: Business Week]
  • Apple is having a tough publicity day, as the company's MobileMe suffered an outage over the weekend. The service costs $100 per year, so disgruntled customers have been voicing their frustrations across the Web. [From: Mashable]
  • If the rumors are true, T-Mobile G1 owners will be getting a late holiday surprise. The devices will supposedly be receiving an Android 2.0 update. [From: Engadget]
  • 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' already set records for opening day video game sales, but the game has also achieved a significantly dubious honor, as well. The game has apparently been illegally downloaded over 4 million times over the course of a mere six weeks. [From: Download Squad]
  • T-Mobile G1 users might not be the only smartphone owners to receive a surprise update this week. Sprint's Pre models will be receiving webOS 1.3.5 today, an update that will reportedly increase performance and battery life. [From: Engadget]
  • The iPhone's already beleaguered New York City reputation is taking a serious hit right now, as AT&T has apparently halted online sales of the Apple gadget to people who live in the city. On top of all that, AT&T won't address the Manhattan snub, which is only serving to exacerbate the situation. [From: Engadget]
  • Major tech firms are steadily unveiling new batches of updates, and the Xbox Media Center is looking to receive a somewhat overdue, yet significant, upgrade. The v9.11 'Camelot' update is available on OS X, Windows and Linux, and will provide a host of features, including "smoother video playback." [From: Engadget]
