CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Verizon announced plans to roll out a series of interactive widgets for its FiOS TV service, laying down a gauntlet of sorts that should force the cable industry to accelerate its iTV efforts. The first “Widget Bazaar” apps, which have already begun rolling out in select markets, will provide TV access to some of the most popular applications on the web: an ESPN Fantasy Football widget will provide real-time fantasy updates; a Facebook widget will enable viewers to update their status as well as view photos and friend updates; and a Twitter widget will provide two-screen, real-time interaction with television programs. Later this month, customers who subscribe to Verizon’s Home Media DVR service will be able to search and view online videos from the popular online video portals, Dailymotion and Veoh. A My Videos feature will also allow subscribers to access videos stored on their PCs. Even more exciting is a plan to open up the platform to third-party developers who will be able to offer apps to the public through the service’s Widget Bazaar outlet – Verizon’s own living room version of the app store.   Full edition: CYN DIGITAL

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  Did you hear?  Warner Bros.Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (PG) opened at midnight on Wednesday?  Oh, you already heard right?  Half-Blood Prince moves The Dark Knight (PG-13) out of the way as the biggest midnight opening box office gross ever, taking in an estimated $22.2 million as it opened in just over 3,000 theaters, according multiple sources.  The Dark Knight, also a Warner Bros. movie, opened July 18, 2008 with midnight receipts of $18.5 million in its 12a opening.  Could Half-Blood Prince break $200 million faster than The Dark Knight’s five-day chart-toppling $203.8 million last year?  While there is now way to be sure … I took the liberty of consulting my trusty Magic 8 Ball, which says, “All signs point to yes.”  Full edition: CYN KIDS
