- Cell phone users tie up traffic: study
Prediction: we are within two years of the formation of Mothers Against Texting And Driving On Roads.
- Announcement for Battlestar Galactica – Season 3
March 25, for those of you keeping score at home. Giving us who love this show ABSOLUTELY NO TIME to watch Season 3 before Season 4 starts. A Season 4 that will be truncated by the Writers Strike, so there is really no reason to rush it out in the first place. Why do you hate us, Sci-Fi Channel?
- FBI renews interest in D.B. Cooper
Next up: finding Jimmy Hoffa.
- Jamie Lynn Spears Returns to TV Friday With ‘Zoey 101’
Honestly, we had no idea the Jamie (oops, originally wrote "Lamie") Lynn even had a TV show until the moment we were forced to endure the breathless pregnancy stories. And by the way: teenager gets pregnant through consenting — but obviously stupidly unprotected — sex is big news??? Because that’s never happened before. In any event, with all of the coverage, the whole thing is sounding like more more like a twisted Spears-family publicity stunt.
- Warner Music to Sell DRM-Free Music Via Amazon
Awesome. Also: if ripping CDs is a crime as per the RIAA, then can I only listen to my DRM-Free mp3z on the original computer to which I downloaded them?
- Yes, Letterman’s back with writers, but Leno minus a net may steal the thunder
This is what we’ve been saying: Dave has always been at his best when he’s the least comfortable. And pissed. You youngsters probably don’t remember this, but Jay Leno was funny a long long time ago — in the 1980s, he always killed on Dave’s show — and this might be his excuse to be funny again. If he remembers how.
- `Surge’ Makes the Banned-Words List
Alas, it takes more than public opinion to stop a surge…
