Awesome T-Shirts

Hey, It's Myles

Well, I'm always looking for awesome t-shirts, and I'm a huge nerd, so I found this one place, called Nerdy Shirts. They add a new t-shirt every Monday, and almost all of them are hilarious, and I'm sure even lots of you non nerds will still understand and love a lot of the shirts there. The other place I found is called Threadless, they're a bit different than Nerdy Shirts in that they have a HUGE selection of different shirts on all kinds of different topics, but the coolest part is that EVERY single shirt is made by visitors to the site. Oh, and right now Threadless has this awesome sale on, a giant selection of shirts are only $10 each!

Okay, so yeah, I make a couple bucks if you buy a t-shirt using the link. :P So what. If someone actually buys one from Nerdy Shirts, let me know and I'll probably buy one using your affiliate link. If you'd like.

Thanks!

New colours for the 7 EUR MP3 player

"The somewhat well-known 7 EUR MP3 player is back...in different colours. You have the choice between orange, blue, green, black and pink. It plays 64-256kbps MP3's, does not have any internal memory, accepts SD cards (up to 1GB), weighs 30 grams , measures 58x60x13mm and offers 85dB and 20Hz-20kHz."

I don't know about everyone else, but it seems like a good idea, say, for a child you don't want to give a atleast $100 ipod to. Buy this, plus a 1Gb/512Mb Sd card, you've spent probably $50-60.

The Daily Show revisits net neutrality

Wow, just wow. This has got to be one of the best Daily Show clips I have ever seen.

It deals with the issue of Net Neutrality. Offering a great simple explanation, while still being funny as ever with "I'm a PC." and making fun of Chuck Norris jokes.

Please share this with everyone you know!

digg - Music

digg - Does Your iPod Play Favorites?

Well, since the comments section of digg is basically always a giant flame war of people. It's a great place to find stuff to talk/think about.

I don't even bother discussing musical tastes with people. I fail to understand why people make fun of people for their musical choices. If they like it, they like it. That should be the end of the discussion. Just because you don't like a band/artist, doesn't mean everyone who does has "bad taste in music" or is "gay".

And don't even get me started on using gay as a derogatory term. Yikes!

digg - World Firefox Day

digg - World Firefox Day

Well, thought this was rather cool. Refer a friend t Firefox, if they download it you get both of your names somehow put into Firefox 2.0

This has started basically a flame war between Firefox and Opera users, heh. A lot of people seem to think that the Mozilla people will ruin Firefox by putting all these names in it. My guess is that it will simply be something you click on in "Help" that will get a page from a server to display the names.

Anyways, so, about this war between Firefox and Opera:

Let me know if you understand my simile.

Firefox is like a TV, a HDTV, with all the inputs you could ever use, and more. You can customize it with any DVD player, set-top box, amp, speaker system or anything else you want. A lot of people love it.

Opera is like a TV, a HDTV, with a built in DVD player and built in "surround" experience. You COULD customize it with some of the above mentioned devices, but that's not what it's meant for. A lot of people love it.

Kutaragi Announces Plans To Confuse PS3 Gamers Even More

'...software module will be made inside the PS3 so PS3 will have no problem adopting new hardware parts - thus two models of PS3 are actually two different configurations, there might be other configurations in future, such as: enhanced version of CELL, more memory etc. The higher-end model of PS3 might be released in future.'

Myles- Umm...what? I only reason I am a console gamer is because I know that, no matter when, if I buy a game for "X" system, it's going to play on any "X" system out there. Peroid.

Man Sony, Come on!

Tristan Dunn (aka Greasemonkey King)


A couple of days ago I was browsing digg.com when I come to find out that Tristan Dunn had taken the non-functioning Google redesign "Google Redux" and made it happen! All with Greasemonkey scripts. (A popular Firefox extension) I was overjoyed since I was a big fan of the redesign by Andy Rutledge.

And thats not all! Today while browsing digg.com I find that Dunn has ALSO brought the Ebay redesign "Ebay Redux" by Andy Rutledge to life. It can be found here.

I bet you think thats all don't you? Well if you do you'd be wrong! Dunn has also breathed his magical touch of life into Craigslist.org. That can be found here.
