Radiohead’s latest album, pay the price you want

without comments

I missed this a couple of days ago (and that’s like months in Internet time), but I still thought I would contribute with the news since it’s not techie enough to go on the frontpage.

Radiohead will be taking the boldest move ever on Internet music distribution with their upcoming album “In Rainbows”. The band expects the release to hit store shelves next week while at the same time they will be making a downloadable DRM-free version available on their site which will set you back… X amount of pounds. The bold move is just that, the unimaginable, you can set the price you want to pay whether it is 2 cents or 10, or 100 dollars, it’s up to you.
They sure have got lots of online publicity so far, and we can only imagine the flood gates won’t fully open until the album is released next October 10th.

Ants have their own pedometers

with one comment

Because there are things you just would never think are possible…

It turns out ants have internal pedometers that help them figure out exactly how many steps they must take to reach their food and get back to their nest.

In a new study published in Science, researchers in Germany and Switzerland studied Saharan desert ants and found that, even in complete darkness, the insects were able to assess traveling distance correctly.
