The always-reliable Merlin Mann passes along this (purportedly Chinese) proverb, which has instantly become my new favourite:-

Hitchhiker's trailer

Writing about web page http://www.amazon.com/

The official trailer for the Hitchhiker's Guide movie has now been released – on the home page of Amazon, funnily enough. It looks absolutely spot on; the characters, the styling of the effects, the Guide itself – and especially Marvin, who cracks me up in the trailer despite not saying a word. And although I don't remember the spades gag that pops up at the end of the trailer from the books, it's absolutely in the spirit of Douglas Adams it seems to me.
