Great stuff from real OS'es and computers :)
"Due to the nature of the filming we had a casualty on the set. Sometimes Arnold would improvise weapons. Actually... we had a lot of casualties. All those bodies..."
One great way of getting rid of that evil cat spawn [check the picture]
This actually looks like I game I'd want to play: engaging puzzles, pretty graphics, no condescending (dumbed-down) user interface/help/tutorials. You have to figure it out on your own, and that seems to work pretty well, according to this review. Too bad it's currently only out for XBox live, but a PC version is planned.
Interesting project for securely backing up your data, remotely
Creating nice word clouds, visualising texts in a really interesting way
With the latest S60 "3rd Edition" phones (such as the N95, N81 etc), Nokia in their infinite wisdom, has decided for us that we users don’t want to install "freeware" apps any more. These phones now require all apps to be "signed" - they don’t give the option to the user to install an unsigned app.
Which means you can't play with your own or other free software freely.

How addicted are you?
32pts: You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.
I'm just never offline ;)
I've seen a lot of things at the Olympics already [happy women hockiers, swimsters, etc ;)], but this image is... just plain weird. WTF are they doing? :)
Story about how to get rid of getting the Dell Home and Home Office catalog mailed to your mailbox
Warp you taste buds and make sour things taste sweet. Interesting!
Quite awesome what this guy does with that nifty musical instrument
CoraZong is a labour of love for company-owners Bert de Ruiter and Evert Wilbrink. The label is best described as Music from the heart by people who care and is home to song-writers, blues-musicians and roots musicians in the broadest sense of these terms.
Cool, my hometown has its very own record label, and quite a famous one at that (at least in blues land).
Behavioural science is great
These Australian guys conducted an experiment and videotaped it: Can you beat the lines at a club and get in by wearing a record bag and pretending to be a DJ?
Ha, quite awesome
[...] the war on drugs, which he believes causes untold misery, undermines effective law enforcement, and doesn't begin to pass any sort of cost-benefit analysis.
Heinz-Jürgen Ehrig, a German Science Fiction fan, has collected about 130.000 Science Fiction books, magazines, fanzines, etc. Since his death in 2003, his widow, the SciFi author Marianne Sydow has spend gazillions of hours cataloguing his collection and is now publishing the bibliographical data on a monthly basis in a paperback + CD outfit for a small fee. Unfortunately she finds it hard to get any subscribers, which is a shame really. It would be a shame if this project dies. More here - I think I'm the only one who brought this more or less to the attention of the "outside Germany" world.

Hookers or Anglers: thieves who stole clothing and other light articles by pulling them through an open window with a hooked stick
Hm, nowadays I get another mental picture when someone mentions `hookers'...
Ah, one to add to my "taking over the world" arsenal ;)
Creative Commons stood the test of court and passed. Nice.
Some guy digitising old music on vynil. He already has quite some of it online. He archives in .wav, but makes it available [for free] in 128KBit/s .mp3
That's what you get when using windows for something mission critical. Too bad I didn't see it live in the TV broadcast
The sheer ignorance of consumers... Brilliant site with customer quotes
Hm, I take MicroB for screen real estate over Fennec [mobile Firefox] any time. An update of it on my N810 with bug fixes and speed upgrades would be nice though...
That's quite impressive. I should dust off my Go board and find some other n00b to play against...
I might even go with option d) "all of the above"; why even pay her bills yet? Pay for your own phone, and if you manage to get such a bill still [despite knowing you're the one who's paying for it], a spanking may be in order :)
Brilliant clip and track by Norman Cook (better known by his artist name Fatboy Slim) - creative censorship!
Almost creepy what can be done automatically
OMGWTFBBQ, this is the bomb. Beautifully animated too!
I wonder what they will discover and/or cause :)
This is how the doctor remembers it:
"We called their help line, and got a wonderful young man in the Philippines who told us:
" 'We can't install it because your name has - in it.' "
I asked the doctor how I was going to print that. He said, "Just say it's a word contained in Libshitz."
