Get Your Conway Twitty Tribute Pistol

The Conway Twitty Tribute Pistol (MP3s) - WFMU's Beware of the Blog:
"Hey, did you know you can buy a Colt .45 Conway Twitty Tribute Pistol if you happen to have an extra two grand lying around?

Hell, if you collect firearms you should probably go ahead and make the purchase and put it right next to your George Jones Tribute Rifle. Both these firearms come from a Second Amendment-loving outfit known as America Remembers, headquartered in Ashland, Virginia."

"New York, NY, December 14, 2009//Best Buy, Samsung, Westinghouse, and JVC are among the 14 consumer electronics companies named in a copyright infringement lawsuit filed today in New York by the Software Freedom Law Center (SFLC).

The SFLC is a non-profit law firm established in 2005 to provide pro-bono legal services to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) developers. The suit was filed on behalf of the Software Freedom Conservancy (Conservancy), the non-profit corporate home of the popular software application BusyBox and many other FOSS projects, and Erik Andersen, one of the program's principal developers and copyright holders.

The suit charges each of the defendants with selling products containing BusyBox in violation of the terms of its license, the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPLv2)."

Flight of the Conchords End Their Television Series

"Flight of the Conchords have announced that they will be ending their television series. They will not have a third season for their television show modeled after fictional versions of themselves. The band posted a statement on their official website. It was written by Jermaine, Brett and co-creator/director James Bobin. This is what the statement said:

we’ve noticed the less we say about the future of the show, the more people want to talk about it, so in an effort to reverse this trend we are today announcing that we won’t be returning for a 3rd season. We’re very proud of the two seasons we made and we like the way the show ended. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make the show and also everyone who watched it. While the characters Bret and Jermaine will no longer be around, the real Bret and Jermaine will continue to exist."

Ustream iPhone App Is Finally Here!

Over the last year, Ustream has sought to extend its reach into the mobile arena, and the company has introduced video-recording and viewing iPhone apps, but its latest offering allows true live broadcasting to multiple viewers. You can begin recording video on your phone, stream it to the Web, and allow any number of people to watch it as it happens. You can include your GPS location with the broadcast as well.

Neil Gaiman Crowdsourcing a Short Story Via Twitter

Coraline author Neil Gaiman wants to make a writer out of you.

His means for penning his upcoming project are as creative as the gems in his copious portfolio, only he can't claim all the credit for this one. Starting today at noon EDT, the writer began encouraging people to tweet in their 140-character contributions for his next short story, which BBC Audiobooks America will later garner into an audio book.

Gaiman (@neilhimself), who is already well established in the Twitter realm, will tweet the opening line and fans will be able to continue the story as they wish. BBC will log about 1,000 contributions into a script that will be edited and prepared to be read by a professional narrator.

Currently there is no talk of releasing the story in print form, but the audio edition will be available for free download at the BBC site, iTunes and other audiobook distributors before the end of the year.

Google Docs, Slowly Morphing into Google Drive

Google Docs, Slowly Morphing into Google Drive:

"The new interface of Google Docs, which is slowly rolled out to all users, brings the service one step closer to an online storage service. The 'items by type' menu replaced 'PDFs' with 'Files', suggesting that Google Docs will allow users to upload any type of files.

It will be interesting to see how Google Drive integrates with other Google services that store files (Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, YouTube) and to find the free quota limits.

Tony Ruscoe found in January an internal Google document about Cosmo, described as an upgrade from GDrive, a service that was only available to Google's employees. 'We're in the process of migrating all Google Doc accounts to Cosmo,' mentioned the document.

Update: Kevin Mohr found an interesting image referenced in Google Docs' code: . It's a folder icon that includes Google Chrome's logo, so it could be related to Google Chrome OS, a browser-centric operating system that will probably use Google Drive to store files online. There's also an icon for videos which suggests that videos will be uploaded to YouTube."

Celebrate Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week. BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them.

Borna Sammak, a member of the Free Art and Technology Lab, is planning an illicit exhibition for a New York Best Buy store on October 8. If all goes according to plan, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. all of the display monitors in the store will simultaneously switch to his incredible video art, which is specially built for hi-def screens and looks like the year 1992 exploding in slow motion (example here). It's unclear how he’s pulling this off, especially with the word out about it, but it’ll be the coolest thing to happen to a Best Buy in years.

Kids can play with anything, if it's Play-Doh

Kids can play with anything, if it's Play-Doh:


"Kids shouldn't play with razor blades, matches, chainsaws, cleavers or pills. Unless, of course, they're made of Play-Doh. The eye-catching ads are from Singapore, which needs better broadband access if Play-Doh's still a viable time-waster there. Compare and contrast these ads with the German campaign for Becks modeling clay, which, as we all know, played the social-issues card and made the world a better place. The Play-Doh tagline: 'Safe no matter what you make.' The stuff's even non-toxic, though if kids do eat it, what they'll eventually make won't be appealing. Via Ugly Doggy. "

KDE's new Plasma netbook interface shines in small places
The KDE netbook project is still in the early prototype stage and will not be ready for the upcoming KDE 4.3 release. Lead Plasma developer Aaron Seigo has listed it in the roadmap for KDE 4.4, which means it could be ready for users in January.

The prototype is an intriguing real-world demonstration of Plasma's versatility and the strength of KDE's architecture. It's also a good example of how creativity and innovation can move Linux beyond traditional desktop paradigms and make it shine in small spaces.

Upload songs (via web or FTP), reorder, rename, customize the style, and share what you like on other sites with an embeddable player.

Sharing your musical taste on the web should be fun and easy. We believe there is no reason it has to stop with the shutdown of a single site, so we've created a free tool to make this possible.

Opentape's creation and design are inspired by Muxtape's success and sleek interface. We were disappointed with its untimely shutdown and wanted the web mixtape movement to continue.

Woman changes name to

Woman changes name to - UK, News - The Independent:
"A woman from Manchester has become the first person to change her name by Deed Poll to a web domain, according to the Legal Deed Service.

Twenty-four-year-old Claire Forshaw changed her name to earlier this week. She had previously been put off changing her name by her boyfriend, 23-year-old Robert Morris, who had tried to dissuade her by claiming it would cost hundreds of pounds.

“I knew that if ever I got the chance I would change [my name] to a web domain, to hopefully become the first. My boyfriend has always told me it cost hundreds of pounds to do, so I just forgot about it,” she told press, adding:

“When I realised it actually cost as little as £10 my boyfriend said that was ideal for me because I am mad on rainbows!”"
