Now we turn to Austin, where the South by Southwest festival is underway.

More than a week of movies, music, and of course tech. Companies from around the world come to Austin to market their products, and to test the waters on which ideas the young, influential crowds respond to the best. A couple of notable items include an Iron Man-like motorcycle helmet, and clothing with solar panels sewed right in, allowing you to charge your devices.

We turn now to Take Two's Jacob Margolis who's in Austin all week reporting for us.
