Snow-White iRiver B100 Wants to be the Fairest of them all PMPs

March 30, 2012

If you’re in the market for something not-Apple branded then maybe you could add iRiver’s B100 PMP in your to-buy list. This media player gives you up to 36 hours of OGG, WAV, APE and ASF and a lot more types of media codecs. The screen is generous at 3.1-inches and is TFT but with a 320 x 480 resolution you may have to look somewhere else for watching videos. Launching in Japan today, 4GB models retail at around $144 while the bigger 8GB versions sell for $168. via

Limewire Being Sued for $75 Trillion, ‘Claim is Absurd’ Says Judge

March 24, 2011

Record companies are suing Limewire, the P2P sharing software company who had users download music illegally, for the amount of $75,000,000,000,000 only.

Seventy-five trillion US dollars. Ok, so let’s put Wolfram Alpha into work here. A single US dollar bill is about .0043 inches thick and if ten billion hundred dollar bills total to 43,000,000 inches tall when stacked, $75 trillion is what? 430 quadrillion inches equivalent to 8,600,000,000,000,000,000,000 audio CDs when stacked together (audio CDs are about .05 inches thick). And pushing the comparisons into the extremes, 75 trillion dollara in $100 dollar bills when stacked together takes 6,923,000,000,000,000 Justin Biebers made into a human totem-pole, which is not humanly possible (despite the Bieb’s mantra of ‘Never Say Never). Yes, we admit these comparisons has become really ridiculous, but the record companies’ 75-trillion-buck claim is mind-boggingly more ridiculous and as per what Manhattan Federal Judge Kimba Wood calls it: absurd.

Apple awards $10k gift card to 10-billionth downloader

February 25, 2010

iTunes

Congratulations to Apple for hitting 10 billion downloads since iTunes store was first launched. The 10-billionaire user was very lucky to be given a $10,000 gift card (what, no cash?).
