Every self-respecting nerd/geek I have known has spent their fair share of time gazing into the night sky and imagining just what its like on other worlds, or just travelling through the stars. Not everyone has a unfettered night sky view from their location because of city lights, trees, etc. So have I got a site for you! Nasa hosts a picture website that displays a new astronomical photo every day, along with a technical description by a guest professor. Here is the picture for today:
I’m fortunate enough to live in an area where, on a cloudless night, I can see a million stars above me. But, for those times that aren’t so weather friendly (which is most of the time), I go here, and check out the newest nebula, pulsar, or supergiant.
Indeed, this is a true statement. With the upcoming release of the new epic movie “Transformers”, media and manufacturers alike are pumping out the robot goodness in every facet of product catagories imaginable. When I was a kid, there were cars, guns, casettes and airplanes that could morph into some fearsome looking automatons. Now, as I was rifling through some of the goodies you can get now, I spotted this unusual item for sale.
I don’t know about you guys, but if I were a transformer, I think i’d rather be something a little more significant than this. Next thing you know, we’ll see transformer cigarette packs, whos only defense is blowing smoke at you
My editor tells me that cell phones are of intense interest to our readers, so I couldn’t resist the challenege to find you the newest technology for our little buddies. Of current development, is a great new business locator program that is currently in beta called “Tellme“.
Find any business in America by talking or typing.
Thumbs tired of typing? Now you can use the power of your voice to find a business.
Just say what you’re looking for and get the address, map, and directions. And it’s all free.
Now don’t count your ringtones before they go off….there is a catch. Since the program is in beta, there are a limited amount of cell phones it will function on, AND it is availble only on the Sprint and Cingular networks. I’d like to test this myself, but currently Verizon Wireless is sucking the life out of my bank account. Fear not though, they do have a form you can fill out with your info to inform you when their service is available to you.
A friend sent me this link today, and by god, I tell you that they hit the nail on the head. Check this place out, and discover just what kind of rave dancer you are! Personally, I’m more like #8, the fridge guy. If you think they left any out, let us know here in the comments section!
I think they left out the “shocked with 10,000 volts of electricity” dancer Party on!
