I imagine most of us like the net. so what are you finding out there?
Pictures, Video, funny , tugs on your heart, Pop culture etc.
I allways like a good laugh ,Pretty girls and good music
this has it all:
Avril Lavigne vs Porcupine Tree
some amatuer mixed these together(infact many PT songs get this treatment:

Awesome thread, we've been needing something like this...

To Avril / Porcupine Tree: WUT?!LOL
To that last pic: Wow really? People be cray-cray. :D

Here's a new crazy/hilarious animated short, called "Adventure Time", that apparently just got picked up for a season on Cartoon Network. Drugs are baaaad....

<CENTER>Is Windows a virus?

</CENTER>With the recent problems being encountered by Windows users all across the country, people are begin to ask themselves if windows is a virus. In response to the high demand for an answer to that question a study was done and concluded the following.

1. Viruses replicate quickly.
Windows does this.

2. Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so.
Windows does this.

3. Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk.
Windows does this.

4. Viruses are usually carried, unkown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems.
Windows does that too.

5. Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware.
Same with Windows, yet again.

Maybe Windows really is a virus.

Nope! There is a difference!

Viruses are well supported by their authors, are frequently updated, and tend to become more sophisticated as they mature. So there! Windows is not a virus.

Oh, and check this out. MTV is betaing a new music video website FULL of music videos, from the very beginning of videos! MTV MUSIC has tons of old gems! David Bowie, Billy Joel... all the most classic music videos you can think of... and yes, YES videos! It's kinda addicting, I warn you, if you like vintage music videos (or new ones, for that matter!!!)... :p But definitely a site worth checking out!

I'll check it out, I was "the MTV generation" when all that stuff came out the first time. they played that "Leave It" video till it wore out.
(I still love that song) but it's similar to the duck song repeating in my head "one down one to go...... "
and "Changes" D-E-G-A, D-E-G-A

Not the Steve Howe Trio but pretty close, it's The Olle Hemmingson's Trio.
A swedish group who apparantly have a great sence of humor!
And when there is no drummer at hand...ask Viktor!

Interesting site, long way to go to compare with YouTube though. A quick check of a few bands this morning left me puzzled as to why so "few" videos? I'm sure they will be adding in the future though.

Yeah, probably, the site is still in 'beta' at the moment, so I assume they still have a lot of work to do on it. The only diff between it and Youtube is that they actually have the rights to the content they publish- 95% of the vids on YT are just published by fans. But if any big name company or artist has a problem with that, they can make it a legal issue, and YouTube will be forced to patrol and take down any video that has to do with that artist. It happens all the time- not usually for artists like YES- but many other current and more 'popular' ones. MTV Music is really a step in the right direction- of course they're still missing a lot, and don't really have a lot of international or non-English-speaking artists- but having such an expansive site, having the rights to the material, and putting it online for free is really great. Just puts more pressure on other big-name companies to offer their videos for free, and MTV is a huge name when it comes to pressure in the music industry. I bet soon whole channels will be available to watch online, 24/7, for free... even in HD... then TV / cable will become a thing of the past and we'll all just hook our computers up to big LCD monitors and stream everything online at minimal or no cost whatsoever. Yesss... :D

they allready have a computer the size of a small desktop light. it projects a keyboard of light onto any surface and projects a virtual monitor into the air with decent resolution, the processor and monitor and keyboard and mouse are all light projections(or within this lamp type thing) and somehow touch sensitive.
I imagine at some point you just will have a set of glasses and things will be blink sensitive
then instead of I-pods , cell phones and laptops everyone will be running around with a multimedia experience in their lenses.(in designer shades of course)
I'll see if I can find a pic of the computer I'm talking about. I think it was cisco systems or something like that that was developing it.
might be good stock to buy .

Heck yes! I've seen something like that before, too. Amazing. MAN do I wanna play with it... just like the Microsoft Surface thing... soooo crazy cool fun. User touch interfaces are def the thing of the future... can't wait! Holograms, 3D printers, flexible LED paper... some guy is supposedly paying for Blade Runner style digital billboards to be put up on buildings in the LA area... DO WANT... ehehe, the future of technology is so exciting... all we need is worm hole travel and we'll be set! ;D
