however much they talk about a future or they want a good relationship with pakistan there's way in excess of 100,000 nato troops. huge amounts of money being poured into by the coalition into afghanistan. also bear in mind what's happening in terms of pakistani moves. they are cutting off supply routes. it's happened before. nato do have reservoirs they can fall back upon would it go on for weeks or months. some other measures we heard of too are pretty much from the arsenal we're familiar with over this poor relationship in the last year or so. things they've done before. so while the rhetoric is bad and the casualties are large, large numbers we haven't really seen the pakistanis take this to a new level because many observers consider the americans and pakistanis kind of need each other the end of the day when it comes to policing this border despite the enormous animosity.

. i would like to think that
12:17 pm
the best work is yet to come. i know that's a pretty big statement to make. but i'm serious about my craft. i've studied my craft and so as you get older and wiser, you're supposed to get better. even though it's pop music, i think you can get better. that's my hope. that's my dream. i would like to create something that people go wow. >> wow. people are always saying wow. it's sting. he's turning 60 and talking about how he hopes his music, his best music is still to come. time for our gaming and gadget segment where we keep you up to date with ever changing technology. so you have albums, eight track maybe, cassette, cds of your musicians and bands. you can have this all in one place thanks to sting. oh, my gosh this is so intriguing. he really is an enterprising man from the very start and he just
12:18 pm
keeps going. >> absolutely. so, you know, not only is an activist and of course a singer, songwriter, but the ex-front man for the police has had a solo career so far. so now with folks that create this app for ipads. it's called sting25. appumentary is a documentary that's an app. it's a downloadable application you run on your tablet and flick and tap your way through all of sting's content over the last 25 years. there's behind-the-scenes footage of him in a recording studio. there's -- you can stream all of the music and have the option to purchase it from all of his solo albums. there's rare photos that's amazing. my favorite feature is 6th birthday concert you alluded to with the likes of bruce
12:19 pm
springsteen and lady gaga. so this is the sting25 app. it's free and i think it's great. setting the bar very high for what artist kansas do. >> oh, my goodness i imagine other artists are thinking that's an inventive great idea. i want to do the same. who else is on board? >> there's other apps you can download. katie perry has one. one from pink floyd. not an official app but called this day in pink floyd. modeled after this detain history approach where you've got facts by date, 365 facts per year. there's so much more to it. we have some pictures as well. this is based on pink floyd's long career. it's got notes for all 167

12:21 pm
plastic for a documentary, those days are slowly coming to an end. apps are just so easy to acquire. you can buy with it a couple of finger taps. not just smart phones an tablets, computers and smart tvs which we talked about last weekend how you can download app tours tv. it's got rich multimedia capabilities. it's not about information and tos but interactive elements like games and kwzs. this is a revenue stream. the sting app while free is sponsored by chevrolet and american express. you see that, it's not all over the place but when you launch the app you see that. then an option to buy the music that you're streaming. so you need an internet connection. >> they want to make their money but the app is free. night be the future, perhaps of music releases, that this is the way artists want to go?
12:22 pm
>> well, i think you have to offer more bang for your buck. if you're a music fan you're probably reluctant to shed out $10 to $20 for just an album of music. so you'll see on itunes they are throwing in a digital booklet, throwing in multimedia like music videos and alternate versions of the tracks. you have to offer more. the music industry wants to survive. multimedia is the key. making it easy and inexpensive to download an app is a great start. >> always good to see you. thank you so much coming from toronto. >> thanks, tread. >> for more ideas and reviews go to >> stay tuned. it's movie time. we'll look again at some other movies. this time limited releases including george clooney in "the descendants."

an expert on the region. >> the pakistanis have done it before. they are reasonable to be quite angry about this incident. not the first time it's happened. this is one of the ways they can put pressure on the united states to make sure it doesn't happen again or to investigate what happened. typically the shutdowns have happened for, you know, a day or two. you know, you'll see pictures of hundreds of trucks backing up at the border because hundreds go over. >> we'll have an nba season after all. basketball commissioner david stern said a tentative agreement was reached this morning. the plan is to start the season on christmas day with a triple header. players still have to ratify the deal. nasa launches a mission to mars this morning. the rorkt carrying the rover named curiosity will take 8 1/2 no, sir to get there. it's about the size of a compact

12:30 pm
perhaps some products that they really don't actually need and some that they have to have and it becomes really a deadly mix and then you have that mob mentality with the anonymity and lack of conscious. >> this mob mentality or this kind of competitive nature is it in all of us? >> it is in all of us but we're also civilized human beings and we know when it's time to turn it on and when to turn it off. what happens is when we have this kind of advertising and the retailers use these incredible sales, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70% off people at times can't help themselves. it's this competitive nature. people get together because they are with other people and they are fighting to get these products they become even more competitive and then they actually begin to become inappropriate, very rude or even some criminal very aggressive behaviors. >> and no one can forget what happened back in 2008 when at a
12:31 pm
walmart a worker was trampled to death by people who rushed through the doors and were so anxious to get to those sales and it took a long time before anybody realized there was somebody on the ground injured which ultimately led to his death. so, when you see examples like this, and even examples that we talked about earlier that have happened today since midnight, for example, do you feel that it's time for the retailers to take more responsibility and say, you know what? maybe people can't behave responsibly and we shouldn't have these sort of black friday or midnight or 6:00 a.m. rush for a bargain or you only have two hours to take advantage of a particular bargain. >> i think you're absolutely right. retailers do have to take responsibility. they really do need to understand that in this particular economy people are very, very desperate. they still can make the money, maybe not as much as they want to make but you also have to be responsible for your fellow human beings, especially in a
12:32 pm
society where people have a lot of desperation. therefore they shouldn't be pushing them so much and using psychological tactics to get them to feed into this desperation. they need to teach them better ways to shop where at the same time they can be kind to their fellow shoppers. >> thank you. millions of people are traveling this holiday weekend as well. the men and women who make sure those planes take off safely have a big job. air traffic controllers have to undergo hundreds of hours of training. we find out how tough that job is. >> reporter: we're here in a simulation lab where air traffic controllers train. we're here in the trial at lax airport and you're going to show me how to land a plane, right? >> we're going depart a couple of airplanes. >> reporter: send some off. >> what you see out the window

12:39 pm
it's a good little movie. i really enjoyed it. it's a fascinating look at how movies were made back then and the trouble that people had working with marilyn monroe. the movie gets predictable at times but for the most part it's worth seeing especially to watch this performance by michele williams. >> what was your rate on this? >> i would give at it b. it's really solid. we'll see at the very least some oscar nominations for the cast. >> what is the premise of these limited releases when you have a movie like this with this kind of star power why is it movie houses would say we'll only send to it a few cities. >> in a weekend like this where you have three really big wide releases part of it is finding the theater space. one of the strategies with a movie like enthusiast release it in the major cities only and create kind of a big buzz. so that way the studio can then get the word out and expand into wide release. typically they start in a few cities and then takes a couple of weeks to get out.
