Northern Tunes · Since I don’t com­mute, I’m not re­al­ly in the tar­get mar­ket for pod­cast­ing. In fac­t, I on­ly lis­ten to one con­sis­tent­ly: CBC Ra­dio 3. It’s an hour a week of Cana­di­an pop mu­sic from peo­ple I’ve usu­al­ly nev­er heard of, and most of it’s re­al­ly good, and hey, it’s my tax dol­lars pay­ing for this; but that’s OK, the rest of the world can lis­ten too.
 
Niagaras and Hummers · As a long-time Green, this Eco-Responsibility an­nounce­ment makes me pret­ty hap­py. Hum­mer Over­floweth is an­oth­er news sto­ry that made me hap­py and al­so, I think, high­lights a trend that au­gurs well for Ni­a­gara, not to men­tion civ­i­liza­tion and san­i­ty in gen­er­al. No I’m not say­ing all of the com­pet­i­tive chips out there are like Hum­mers (well, ex­cept for some of the high-end Xeon­s). But the CoolThreads stuff is the Toy­ota Prius of the CPU world.
