Turn Your Laptop Into An iPad Easily

TechCrunch shows you how to take your laptop and turn it into an iPad with an easy to follow video.

This was too funny not to share…

I love April Fools.

Some other worthy pranks I came across:

Starbucks has announced new sizes of drinks… Plenta™ (128 fl oz) and Micra™ (2 fl oz) cups are to arrive in Starbucks stores this Fall.

Speaking of the iPad, cnet.uk announced today that the iPad was a joke.

Then there is the iPhone to iPad converter:

ThinkGeek.com supposedly is selling the iCade for your iPad:

Kodak introduces Aromatography – As a shutterbug I got a huge laugh out of this.  To find out more about how Kodak came up with Neuro-Optic-Nasal-Sense Imaging CLICK HERE.

FunnyOrDie.com is now BieberOrDie.com.  Apparently the lil crap bought the hilarious website.  I wish I could embed the video of Justin Bieber on there.  Totally worth checking out.

ThinkGeek.com apparently also has Unicorn Meat for sale today.

Excellent source of sparkles!

Google announded that there will be Google Wave wave notifications for Google Wave.  Google claims they will sent a human to you to let you know when there is a new Wave in your inbox.

Google has also replaced their famous logo with “Topeka”, a nod to Kansas’s capitol who temporarily renamed itself Google, Kansas. Google explained the prank in detail on their blog.

YouTube claims you can watch your videos in text.  Just click on the video below to be redirected to YouTube (since it is not working here) and then change the mode to TEXTp to see what this is all about…


YouTube claims:

By using text-only mode, you are saving YouTube $1 a second in bandwidth costs.

Woot.com is going a Choose Your Own Adventure Woot.  Hilarious.  I am thinking of partaking in this as it might be a way to score something awesome.  Woot is known to be creative…

I am sure more will pour in throughout the day but this is all I have time for.

Oklahoma, “Do You Realize?”

The song is amazing.  I think about my wife when I hear this song because let’s face it, I love her to death and think she is the most beautiful person in the world.  Beautiful song to listen to while thinking about a beautiful girl….  awwww…  I’m a sweetheart.

Recently Oklamhoma nominated the Flaming Lips as a contender for the official rock song for the state of Oklahoma.  Nine other finalists also have the opportunity to have their song declared the official Oklahoma rock song.  Artists who were nominated all have history in Oklahoma be it they were born there or someone from the pan handle state had something to do with a rock song that became a hit.

From September 1 to November 15 the public will vote to decide the Official State of Oklahoma Rock Song. The winning song will be presented to the State Legislature in 2009 to make it official.  Votes will be taken via their website that was created called OklahomaRockSong.Org.

I think it is a great idea to give a band the opportunity to hold the title of having a song be the state song, but I have a question…

Oklahoma people who nominated The Flaming Lips…have you actually read into the song?   Beautiful and deep, talking about happiness through the reality of knowing death…a little depressing to me.  Still, I hope they get it.

The Lyrics:

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize – we’re floating in space
Do You Realize – that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize – that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize – Oh – Oh – Oh
Do You Realize – that everyone you know
Someday will die –

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes – let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize

Are You Effin’ Serious Lars Ul-RICH????

So I am sure many of you know the new Metallica album Death Magnetic was leaked on the internet.  It is almost impossible these days for a release to not be leaked.  Someone somewhere out there gets the glory of having an advance copy of something…and promptly uploads it on the internet for millions of filesharing people to obtain.

I am sure everyone remembers what Napster used to be.  If not, get your head out of the clouds…  Napster was one of the first publicly recognized music sharing program sites out there that helped music fans get what tunes they wanted for free all while violating copyright law.  In time it was shut down and then bought out and molded into what it is now but I know I remember Lars Ulrich, drummer for Metallica, not being too happy about the situation.  After all their demo of a song for the Mission: Impossible II soundtrack called “I Disappear” was found circulating on Napster by Metallica before it was even released.

In fact they along with a few other musicians stood up together around 2000 to try and stop digital music sharing (piracy). They might have had better luck saving rain forests.  Lawsuits, bogus charges, and many years later they changed their mind and allowed digital downloads of their albums and then finally in 2006 their catalog appeared on iTunes.

Anyways, I came across a quote from Lars today on www.punknews.org and I almost lost it.

Here is his quote:

If this thing leaks all over the world today or tomorrow, happy days. It’s 2008 and it’s part of how it is these days.

Seriously Lars?  Happy days?  I am glad you finally have come to terms with it.  Me thinks Rick Rubin put some sense into you guys, thankfully.

The CD is good.  Not that I have heard it from a recently downloaded copy (cough*cough).
