Console wars, the internet, Velazquez, and DSL speeds

If you can trust the data, it looks like the XBox 360 and the PS3 may have finally caught up with the Wii. For a week. Yay for price cuts. Then again, the Wii has dominated so long, they probably can't catch up in total sales. Still, the top selling console is the DS.

An article on the history and future of the internet. September 1 marked its birthday, as well as for Google Chrome and Gmail.

Here's an article on a painting by the old Spanish master Velazquez. Makes me think of Alatriste.

Some guys in South Africa, complaining about their slow internet connection, claimed that a carrier pigeon would carry data faster than their DSL line. They set up a race.
