What Should I Listen To?

Match your music to your mood… MusicOvery.

I tried it out for a few and it’s not bad… I think Pandora has the definite advantage in this area, but I think there’s always room for competition.

I thought this was clever… Read a book via RSS feeds… they take a book and split it up into small chunks. Then they take those chunks and put them in an RSS feed, releasing sections of the story on your preferred schedule (weekdays, every day of week, MWF are the choices right now) and the time you prefer.

They mostly have public domain books, but they do have a few recent books, such as this scifi book that is fairly recent, Eastern Standard Tribe, by Cory Doctorow (of Boing, Boing fame). The author in this case is a proponent of the open source equivalent in literature…

Eye Candy + Google = Groovle.

For my money, I want the speed of a clean interface like Google.

Yay! I loved how well they did Batman Begins, I’m happy to see them go for another movie.

You can see over at imdb that the main cast is back and Heath Ledger is playing the Joker.
