New stuff! For me, at least.

I have been listening to a lot of KPFT 90.1 on the drive to and from school, and it's a pretty interesting radio station. You hear a lot of different views on a pretty wide variety of topics--environmentalist issues, poverty issues, technology talk, political issues, black issues, hispanic issues, international news (including the BBC, local news, and Democracy Now)... even though I agree with very little of what is said, it's interesting to hear all of the different points of views. And, it's nice to hear liberals on air rather than the conservative tanks of AM radio (who are often as misinformed, but are more likely to also be angry... I guess peace, love, and harmony-type conservatives are hard to find).

Anyways, Geek Radio is one of the shows on KPFT, and I thought it might be useful or interesting for some people to know a little about what the local tech scene is like.

I also listen to houston public radio whenever they have the news on, but that's nothing new.

Although I haven't owned a Nintendo system since the SNES, I do fashion myself a Nintendo fan. Their upcoming Nintendo DSi sounds to me like they've found a way to capture some of the iPod Touch's market space. Now, if only they offered free apps... on the other hand, I love the SD card slot.

And, Google has releaesed Google Latitude. Now you can let your friends know where you are, and meet up with them if they're in the area. I think it's a pretty neat app, but no one I know uses it yet.
