Links of the Day

YouTube Feather - It’s the same YouTube, but now many of the videos have a lightweight page load version that strips away elements of the page to encourage faster load times. This is a solid solution for those with slow internet connections (say 3G), netbooks and the like. It’s actually just great if your one those that watches the video but not into all the social aspects of the site.

$10 USB Power Outlets - In an idea long time coming, a company will start selling power outlets with two usb ports, perfect for those that have lot of things that charge via a USB port (like me).

Look into Music Industry Accounting - At the link is an example of the rather strange accounting practices that occur in the music industry that essentially results in a "poor me" attitude of the studios even though they rarely have that much to complain about. This is especially when take in account that while they complain they are being screwed by pirates, they themselves often screw the artists even more.

Next Gen Netbooks - You might have noticed lots of sales going on with netbooks and the reason is simple - starting in January the next generation of them will begin hitting stores shelves. These new models will have faster chips, more RAM, slightly larger screens and more. At the link is a more detailed look into the specifics of what is coming.

Lego Matrix Reenactment - Creative use of Legos to create the first bullet time sequences from the first movie.

Queen Automatic Mario - A fan made level of Super Mario Bros that follows the beat and pitch of the Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now". Impressive work overall.
