I've just got the iPad Empire digital version, and I've screenshotted the feature. It should be fine apart from a couple of the character bios (because of the swipe for more), and the resolution is limited to the one of the iPad 2 (if anyone had the ipad 3 then that would've been better)

Is anybody able to export the original iPad file?
That way I could rip all the original images from it.

I can;t do that because my iPad isn't jailbroken :L The magazine itself is stored separately from the app, like an add-on download, which is stored on the iPad itself, not on iTunes

Q
Lindelof's comments at the end pretty much confirm for me we're going to see a Xeno at the end of Prometheus. What else could he mean by comparing it to the encore at the end of a rock concert? Think about the implications of that comment - when a classic pop/rock act play one of their most famous numbers as an encore, that means the fans get to see/listen to/experience something from the past that they all love. SUREly that's the Xeno?

Plus I've always felt, since there's been this emphasis on the "final 8 minutes" or whatever, that they simply wouldn't be able to resist a Xeno moment. I know Prometheus is a very different film to a direct "prequel", but I've always felt the introduction of the Xeno, with its iconic status, is simply too powerful an image to overlook.

Sorry if I am asking stupid questions but I have no idea how all this exactly works.
But can't this additional file be moved or copyed to another media or storage device?

No it can't. It stays on the iPad, unless it's jailbroken (i.e. hacked) When you have the Empire app (that you sync to your iPad with iTunes and back), it doesn't have the magazine in it, you have to download it separately within the app, and it saves onto a location in your iPad that only the app can access, and everything else (iTunes etc.) can't/ So you can't just copy the magazine from the iPad. But when you jailbreak it, you can browse thorugh you iPad's files and find the magazine files, and copy them over. Hope that makes sense.

amazing article. the timeline is especially interesting, there's no point in making canon arguments now.
Are you talking about the timeline in the article, or the online timeline for Prometheus? Because the article timeline is a summary of the series as a whole, not a canon bible. It was pieced together by the magazine, not the film-makers.

bit of both. they let them trash the AvP movies openly and the article mentions the story does indeed invalidate AvP. i say it's safe to asume only what the movie says counts.

Indeed, though from what I've heard the online timeline was put there to explain the background of things they couldn't elucidate throughout the movie. That. and its viral purpose, of course.

Im reading that we will find out about who layed those eggs in the cargo hold.
Sounds to me that they will use a queen from Aliens? that would be something.

One has to be careful not to confuse the journalist's narration and direct quotes. Seemed more like the reporter's personal supposition to me.

the fact that they're acknowledging the mess at all just feels good.

See above. Just supposition. I suspect two things will eventually be true:

1: It won't really turn out to contradict two certain movies in any really meaningful way. At best, it simply won't reference them.

2: 'Prometheus' will turn out to have at least one minor plot point which seems not to fit into known canon, rendering it a bit awkward when trying to reconcile it to the originals.

There's already stuff in the WI timeline that's dodgy.  It's like they're trying too hard.

However, that doesn't have any bearing on what the film will reveal at this point.

David is the victim of prejudice... So that's why Vickers is slamming him to the wall at the end of the third tv spot. I think this movie is getting more interesting.

Eesh... I hope not much is made out of the 'prejudice' being alluded to in recent quotes. Like an emotionless robot somehow taking exception to things because it feels offended.

That was the biggest problem I had with 'The Animatrix' when it came out. Why would anyone programme manual labour devices with the capability to feel depressed and angry at being used?

If anything they're making David seem curious and open-minded, I don't see him as being easily offended.

Feeling emotions such as depression and anger at how he is being treated, especially since he's watched over these people as they were in stasis for two years whilst he pottered about the ship with probably not much to do, I could see that.

Also we have no idea why Vickers is getting physical with him in that scene. For all we know she's got mad at him for selling the humans up the river. Or not.
