Tech The Week in Geek
posted by September 21 at 16:12 PMon
Only one thing really happened this week in geek, and that was when I found this. Everything else is kind of a blur.
Oh, and I hear there’s some kind of big game coming out for the Xbox next week, “Halo” or something like that. Sounds like a Bible game, so I don’t really get why everyone’s so excited.
Okay, here’s a couple more things:
New Business Plan! - Hot or Not has announced that they’re doing away with whatever they were doing and replacing it with something else they may or may not have been doing before. The real news here, of course, is that Hot or Not still exists and is, like, an actual company of some kind. I’m stalled at 75% hot, with 111 votes in the past 4 years. And yes, I dress like that all the time.
NBC to Go it Alone, Fail - In a huge blow to Apple’s iTunes, NBC will offer downloads of some of their shows through their own system, which will suck more than anyone can imagine and will cease to exist quite soon after it begins to exist.
Free for All! - Jason Kottke digs through the New York Times’ newly opened archves and discovers some gems. What have you found? I found this story from 1912 about a $3M lawsuit over a Costa Rican banana plantation. I also found a typo in that article.
Gore Wins! - Winning the presidency is hard (especially against cheaters), but winning entertainment awards, he’s got that shit down.
Now, let me get back to my Scrabble game.
