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."

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.
Ustream iPhone App Lets You Stream Live Video - PC World
This is something that I think will make ustream way more useful. I've had an account for years but rarely a chance to use it since you had to be connected to a computer.

Introducing Google Public DNS

Official Google Blog: Introducing Google Public DNS:

"When you type into your browser's address bar, you expect nothing less than to be taken to Wikipedia. Chances are you're not giving much thought to the work being done in the background by the Domain Name System, or DNS.

Today, as part of our ongoing effort to make the web faster, we're launching our own public DNS resolver called Google Public DNS, and we invite you to try it out."

Soon the internet will just be called the Twitter Google-book

Inspired by Twitter, Tunes Into Customized Stations

Now, its edge on other Twitter/music mashups is about to grow, as is set to introduce a set of features based on familiar Twitter attributes — hashtags and trending topics — that can be used as filters to create customizable radio stations.
