mostly of interest to me, 'cause I have/had computer addiction issues. As does my sister. And I'm sure some of you people do too... Maybe.

Anti-iPod campaign: iDon't.

http://www.ipodnn.com/articles/06/05/22/sandisk.idont.campaign/

I'm... somewhat disappointed. People, if you're going to make something to rival the iPod, at least try to match either the sizes being offered (like, up to 60 GB), or include Mac support. 'cause, while I would seriously consider an iPod alternative (iRiver's been something I've been watching, although... I don't know yet.), something I can't use really doesn't work as an iPod replacement.

And replaceable batteries? That issue is long dead, I believe. You're better off hunting for something that can do something brand new, something so utterly awesome, the entire world turns around to look. Maybe an idea expanded upon the digital paper stuff. eInk, I believe it was.

Sony Rootkit Settlement

Hah! We win! (eh, we = consumers, anyhow)

"Consumers will receive new malware and vulnerability-free CDs, a patch to remove the offending XCP or MediaMax code, and Sony will be dishing out free downloads."

In other news, I found eMule (eDonkey?) to be an awesome network for large files. Like several archives of Hooked on Classics~ <3 =^^=v

It also helped me locate MariBato, a doujinshi Maria-sama Ga Miteru game. (...a Maria-sama Ga Miteru doujinshi game? which goes first..?). It's been uploaded to MegaUploads (:P YouSendIt, why did you have to limit your upload sizes to 50MB?) and you can download it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTKJ1MZB

(Disclaimer for the file: I've run it on my own PC, but I give no guarantees of it not being a virus. It _does_ crash for me, every time the battle ends and I return to the main menu.)
