NY Times' David Pogue on the Bizarre World of Paying for Ringtones

NY Times' David Pogue on the Bizarre World of Paying for Ringtones. Personally, I've only purchased a ringtone once (Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", used as my morning alarm). I've never understood paying a couple bucks for a snippet of a song, and I wish the whole practice would go away.

Amazon to Offer DRM-Free Music Downloads

Amazon.com has announced that they are going to be selling DRM-free music downloads in MP3 format, allowing them to be used both on the iPod and the Zune (as well as a host of other cool playback options). EMI is the first major label to sign up. Kudos to them. I know it might be pie-in-the-sky, but my hope is that all the music I have bought from the iTunes Music Store will eventually be made available to me to re-download (for free) without the DRM, so I can use it more freely (like play it through our Xbox 360).

Come In / Go Away

Brilliant! From SUCK UK Design comes a very cool doormat. It makes use of a cleverly-designed ambigram, which either reads "Come in" or "Go away", depending on from which direction you're reading it. BTW, I believe my first real introduction to an ambigram was the cover of Dan Brown's Angels & Demons.
