Those are three shows we like to listen to… Read More

  • Palm OS apps on Nokia tablet in action: Video

    That whole thing where you can run Palm OS apps on Nokia internet tablets, like the N770, 800, and the new 810? It’s not fake, and it seems pretty kickass. Above you see a photo of the VM in action, and I’ve given you a video after the jump.

  • The writer's strike in plain English

    Viacom sues YouTube for 1 billion, writers get 75 cents a word. Viacom estimates downloadable content is worth $500 million and writers get bad coffee. There’s the bottom line. Hopefully this strike destroys the media conglomerates and a new, communal writing system takes root and flourishes in the wasteland of dead media, but it won’t. We’ll just have to wait longer for Lost… Read More

  • Microsoft, I totally get your Xbox 360 ads

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=27798 The Parking Lot. I totally get this.

Yeah, the balloon dropping of components is weird, but at least I know what’s going on. This is a clear indication that the Xbox 360 still owns the streets. Read More
