Kieran has sent in this page entitled "Look Up and Smile". Run by Microsoft, this initiative is planning several things including taking photos of sites all across Australia and a big competition.

To continue the funny videos that have been posted, I direct you to Angry Alien productions who make 30 second long flash clips re-enacting popular movies....with bunnies! Their newest production is their version of Borat, don't worry it is very mild in comparison to the real film.

Jonathan has sent in this page which instructs you how to make a model Starship Enterprise out of an old floppy disk.

Matt and Jonathan sent in news about this guy who lost a wii bit of weight by playing the Wii. "Video games and weight loss are rarely seen side-by-side - unless you are referring to Nintendo's newest games console, the Wii, which has enticed gamers the world over to get up off the couch. One Wii owner has reported that, in just six weeks of play, he had dropped 2 per cent of his body fat rating, thanks to the consoles motion-sensitive control scheme that rewards active movement when directing in-game characters."

Steve has sent in this odd auction on eBay. What's even stranger is that somebody actually bid.

MySpace is set to offer spyware to parents of Myspace users. "Parents who install the monitoring software on their home computers would be able to find out what name, age and location their children are using to represent themselves on MySpace. The software doesn't enable parents to read their child's e-mail or see the child's profile page and children would be alerted that their information was being shared. The program would continue to send updates about changes in the child's name, age and location, even when the child logs on from other computers."

To continue from the post I made the other day about Joost the broadband TV service, Australian IT has an article with a bit more information about it. Thanks Yonas.

A couple of people has sent in that PCI-E 2.0 has been ratified. The update includes a number of changes including a speed boost. "PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0 probably will first arrive about a year from now, said Al Yanes, chairman of the PCI SIG. "As with PCIe 1.0, we expect the graphics guys to be the first adopters of PCIe 2.0," Yanes said. The technology also will be used in cards for high-speed networks including InfiniBand, Ethernet and Fibre Channel, he said. "

Today's timewaster is from Hudson who has sent in the game Bush Shoot Out where you play as President Bush who shoots the people invading the White House.
