Now I believe I will go to bed [Update: I didn't, but I will now, I swear].
So we're in G.C. now for the holiday what-not, and I just decided I need to purge my cool stuff tanks--they're getting a little full. So here you go.
- Protopage It's basically an online desktop program, more cool than useful, but I like it.
- iPodderx An excellent podcast RSS reader/player. There might be better programs like it out there, but the pre-subsubscribed feeds are almost all good (most notably Slice of SciFi and This Week in Tech (which is where I heard about Protopage)). We listened to those and others on the way here. No link, b/c they're currently changing the name and redoing the website. There's a contest for the new name, but I'm not sure how you're supposed to enter, since the site is down...
- On a related note, I've been listening to the Diggnation podcast for the last few months, and I highly recommend it. Kevin Rose makes it relevant and informative, and Alex Albrecht makes it funny (he was the 'new guy' on TSS just before G4 cancelled it). I also recommend Systm and The Broken, also by Revision3, although new episodes of those don't come out very often.
There are many other things in my cool-stuff tanks, but they have to finish processing.

This is one of the cooler examples of what Christmas Decor, Inc does. They're a professional Christmas decoration company, with franchises all over the country, and they do residential and commercial jobs.
This would be a freaking cool job, especially if you lived somewhere with lots of insanely rich people. Observe:
Rich Guy: Here's $10,000 to decorate my estate.
Anyway, check out the site. They're a cool company.

This can't possibly be true....but a bunch of these evil-looking squirrels supposedly killed and ate a dog in Russia. If it is true, then I want my own pack of killer squirrels, too. Perhaps Russia could market trained assassin squirrels as anti-terrorism weapons--maybe they could flush out that Osama guy... Russia could get out of debt, we could get rid of an enemy. It's win-win.
