Track your favorite arists’ new CD releases with Music-Alerts.com

newrss.jpgHave a need or desire to keep up with your favorite artist’s latest releases? Check our this slick service. Music-Alerts.com takes the names of your favorite bands and creates an RSS feed that lets you see when the artists you are interested in release a new CD. Currently you can add artists to your custom feed, but not delete them. No problem, just make a new one. This tracks releases on Amazon.com so if yer’ faves are not on there, you might have a little trouble. I love it because as soon as I see an artist appear on there, I know I can go right to isohunt.com to Amazon and buy it if I like. Enjoy!

Download different software for free everyday

green-download-icon.jpgGiveaway of the Day features a free download of software that is normally not freeware. Every 24 hours they feature a new software title and you have 24 hours to download and install that software for free. It is obviously what they are doing here. The software vendors are offering a digital “free sample” of their product to get the word out. Giveaway of the Day is using that to get the traffic and presumably, ad revenue. No problem with that, we get free software!


Great article on finding help with your troubled electronics

Wow. I have been trying to figure out exactly which part of this article I want to write about. I finally decided it is so good that honestly I think the best thing to do is just post the link for the article and tell you to read it yourself. So here it is:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/08/technology/personaltech/08basics.html?_r=1&ei=5087&em=&en=b64c75ceb17262d8&ex=1194670800&oref=slogin&pagewanted=print

Hopefully, I can post about a few different things in that article in the future in more detail. I have been wanting to replace the battery on an old iPod anyway so maybe I will try that.


Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Ted Dziuba is my new hero! This guy knows his stuff, doesn’t kiss anyone’s ass, is a Google alum and is still only 23. He’s a no-nonsense blogger who calls out all the Silicon Valley and Web 2.0 BS. Read the article on him in Wired and then check out his blog, Uncov.
