Ben's Tech Roundup 

I just thought I'd share some cool stuff I found today.

First off, I want my computer setup to look like this

So anyone who wants to donate a 30"cinema display or a Mac Pro, give me a call.

Second, I found a rocking new program that first made me think of Ziggy, but then I realized I could use it, too. Called Delicious Library, all you do is point your iSight at the bar code on your books, and it downloads the relevant information so that in your computer you generate a library catalogue of all your media for cross referencing, etc. Cool stuff.

Finally, there appears to be a decent movie download site, CinemaNow, with plenty to offer. They have a three tiered business model, offering movies to buy, rent, and for free. The $$ titles include many almost A-list titles like Mission Impossible: III, A Scanner Darkly, and Little Miss Sunshine. For free, you can watch quality titles like Ninja Academy, and People From Space. I love it!!! Sites like this are the opening salvo in what, overf the next ten years, will be the internet's changing how we watch tv and movies. I dream of the day when I can watch any movie or TV show I desire any time I like.

That's all. Hope y'all enjoy it.

Oh, and I think all of this came from Lifehacker.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
