Sightseeing from Satellites

Memepool links to a fun site for "Google-tourism."

This website of an electronic/conceptual artist modifying a hot-dog to incorporate a robotic speaking parrot made me laugh. Click on Cybernetic Parrot Sausage or the flying synthetic doughnut.

Gizmodo links to a brief piece on the origins of the Macintosh cold-startup sound. Actually, the blog containing that story, Music thing, has pieces about: Brian Eno and the Windows 95 startup, the THX sound, and others...

A certain B. B. among us may enjoy hearing our dream come true: a song composed of Macintosh alert sounds. Or, perhaps most impressive, a virtuosically minimal presentation of a song made out of PC sounds.
