Amazon MP3
Yeah, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and talking about Amazon MP3, too.  But, hey: it’s actually pretty big news.  A real competitor to the iTunes Music Store (who, don’t get me wrong, certainly isn’t a “bad” store) that’s done by a company that—no one can …

Homeless World Cup
Footballers (er, that'd be "soccer players") who happen to be homeless, playing in leagues and competing in the organized Homeless Wold Cup around the world. Definitely a good cause.

aachuett
What, you say?  That’s “Massachusetts” without the M and the S.  Yep, in order to keep an open and accessible document structure, the Massachusetts government is going to drop Microsoft Office products for software that supports OpenDocument. Of course, Microsoft claims that they are foolish, …

No Bloody A, B, C or D…
James Doohan, the actor who played Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott of Star Trek, has passed away. He was one of the original series cast who loved attending cons and interacting with fans. Reading his obituary, I have to say that I was pretty amazed by …

First Extrasolar Non-Gas Giant Planet Found
Space.com’s report of a planet with a probable “iron core and a silicon mantle” should be getting me excited more than I actually am. The fact that I blogged it here is somewhat of a proof that I did give the news a second thought, …

Adobe & Macromedia in English
There’s been a lot of talk recently about Adobe buying Macromedia, why it was done, what it means, etc.  Daring Fireball now brings us a translation of the Abobe :FAQ: regarding the acquisition. John Gruber apparently has many of the same thoughts as I do, …

Famous TV Personality Gives Up Trademark Vice
I’m not going to say who this TV personality is, or what the person does, or which incredibly famous TV show the person is in right now. All I can say about this are two things. One: Thirty years of legacy have seemed to be …

Dinosaur’s Soft Tissue Discovered
Wired posted an article today about the discovery of soft tissue in a Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil. But a Jurassic Park-like scenario, where cloned dinosaurs rampaging throughout the jungles, or at the very least someone’s backyard, is unlikely because this is fossilization at a molecular level. …

Google News, Customized!
The braintrust over at Google has done it again.  Google News (still in Beta after almost three years…) now allows you to customize the page so that you only see the type of news you want to see.  I don’t particularly care too much for …

U.N. Landmine Commercial
Apparently, several networks in the US, including CNN, are declining to air a Public Service Announcement made for the United Nations.  The 60-second spot shows a youth soccer game being played when suddenly one of the players steps on and detonates a landmine.  The ad …

Battlestar Galactica - Free, Legal
Thanks to Boing Boing: SciFi.com is making the first episode of the very excellent new Battlestar Galactica series available online.  In fact, the episode (titled “33” and one of my favorite of the series so far) is available completely uncut and commercial free.  Plus, there …

Intelligent Design… or Not
The, um, “theory” of Intelligent Design (the supposition that living creatures are just too complicated to have evolved naturally and thus must be the product of some “intelligent design”) has been in the news recently, mostly due to a Pennsylvania school district’s decision to let …
