MySpacebook Now Becoming a Reality

Mamapop_blingee First, I want to draw your attention to the MamaPop Blingee to the left that I took waaaay too long to create. Considering how relatively shoddy the writing for this post is going to be because I put all of my creative efforts into creating that monstrosity, it would really mean a lot to me if you just drank that in in all of its animated .gif glory. If you don't check it out now, don't worry. I'm going to post it again at the end of this post just for good measure.

Twitter_fail_whale So I guess Twitter is developing a television show?

Did President Obama Violate Copyright Law With the Queen's iPod Gift?

Kelly_betch_jail A little brainteaser for all the geeks in our audience. Okay, fine, we're all geeks. Make that "for our audience."

"President Obama reportedly gave an iPod, loaded with 40 show tunes, to England's Queen Elizabeth II as a gift. Did he violate the law when he did so?

You know your copyright laws are broken when there is no easy answer to this question."

For real. Read the full article at Electronic Frontier Foundation's website. It's weirdly interesting.

(Personally, I lost all faith in our copyright laws thanks to the continued existence of Coldplay.)
