It’s a good day for news: the bestest online radio stations, provided by soma.fm, now support iPhone (and iPod Touch of course). This is great news because before the only way you could listen to these stations with the Wonder Device was through Flytunes.fm‘s service, but that was only available briefly as the two groups didn’t get along.
Wow, I am so excited for access to unlimited Lounge music anywhere, anytime.
The government’s Energy Information Administration has indicated that domestic/off-shore oil wouldn’t be available for decades and that the total quantity and its affect on price would be inisignificant (their word) [source].
Yet John McCain is pushing it as a solution to our current problems. With the facts plainly available, why would he still support this?
“McCain does lead all other senators, and all others who ran for president, in contributions from the oil and gas industry…”
This is a video (sorry, no embed link provided) presented by AMD showing off what two of their newest chips and chipset can do inside of a singular PC. Holy testicles, this is crazy. Now I’m really gonna feel guilty about killing Derrick in GTA IV…
AMD described it thusly: “you won’t just play movies, you’ll play in them” which would sound cheesy and ring hollow if it wasn’t for the live demonstration of playing inside of what looked exactly like a movie.
Is controlling UAV drone planes with an iPhone really that useful??
Saw M. Night Shamalong-a-ding-dong’s “The Happening” yesterday. Good times. Very funny, several laugh-out-loud moments. During and after watching it I was convinced that the movie was ultimately a joke because of they myriad instances of bad directing, bad acting and bad dialogue that were so hilarious. Unfortunately I think that some of those may have actually been unintended. I don’t care though because this was a very funny movie and if you liked Slither or Cabin Fever you’ll like this. Damn funny stuff.
I still think that M. Night is going to come out at some point and admit that the whole thing was a joke and he can’t believe so many people took it so seriously. We’ll see.
