gadgets craziness

before going on vacation i gave in to my craziness for it gadgets. i will present them, since they have been shipped during my absence, on this blog. since the chumby first was available in the us last year, i was always pondering to order one. due to selling restrictions i was hesitant.
now i got one up and running: listening to the one of my favorite radio station on the net frequence3 while slideshowing my latest holiday pictures from picasaweb. how cool is that!

a refreshing beverage

exciting news from nin and trent: the album “the slip” is available for free here:
the slip
and check out the available downloads:
:: high-quality MP3s (87 mb)
:: FLAC lossless (259 mb)
:: M4A apple lossless (263 mb)

i firmly believe that trent, radiohead and the likes know how to run a music business in the web 2.0 epoche. the listeners will happily buy merchandise material and even real albums from these kind of artists. in the long run it is all about building a relationship with your audience and in the end it will generate plenty of dinero as well.
