Cool site of the day

CopyFight deals with the many battle these days of intelectual property rights. Lots of interesting stuff about DMCA, RIAA, and other Orwellian groups.

M$ plays nice

Apparently Micro$oft didn't like the domain www.MikeRoweSoft.com which is owned by a 17 year old Canadian kid named Mike Rowe. Anyway, M$ finally offered to give him some goodies in exchange for the name. Sounds like he's moving to www.MikeRoweForums.com.

Officially a commodity

USB storage devices will soon be sold in gumball machines. This is all the proof I need. I bet my sis alreay has one of these.

Huh? Seriously?

I think they people doing market reasearch for this company used the research money to buy drugs. How else do you explain a USB powered humidifier? Now if only it came in a left handed version.

Can I nap at work?

Research shows that "sleeping on it" may help problem solving.

Instant on PC

Intervideo is coming out with a new PC add-on to compete with M$ MediaCenter. Been debating myself between a PC based DVR and TiVo...

Do they make a blow up wife too?

My little sis is getting married... hopefully not here.

We don't need no stinkin badgers!

My little sis had a link to this tid bit on her blog.

The geek candidate?

A black woman may have less than zero chance of becoming president, but Carol Moseley Braun may be the candidate for geeks. She seems to say what's on her mind and last night on The Daily Show, she quoted two Sci-Fi classics: "Live long and prosper" (Complete with hand sign) and "Fear is the mind killer"

Yeeahhh right...

A dream machine? Try binaural brain entrainment instead.

CES 2004 Best of Innovations

I kinda hate when I see something this cool from a new company, 'cause so many are either vaporware, overpriced, or the company quickly disappears. I think the major electronics companies have been coming out with small incremental changes in products so they can keep selling us new stuff rather than making something that is a quantum leap in coolness. That also allows them to put stuff out relatively cheap compared to a lot of these "wonder products" from startups. Although, Apple seems to be doing OK with a product that's main feature is style (some people will argue Apple's user interface is what does it, but there isn't THAT much of a difference from the competitors).

iDrool

If this info is accurate, I maybe needing a new toy in a little while. It'll have to be painfulling expensive... maybe the OQQ uPC is the way to go. I see no reason why something like this shouldn't work fine, but battery life is still going to be a problem. I think I heard that Toshiba was going to be introducing a fuel cell laptop this year, but last I heard the current technology is only 10-15% better than traditional batteries.

Reminds me of a famous Nate-ism

NY Times has an article about IMing people across the room...

Not really related, but funny...
