A couple of things from the web that are of interest. Segway the people with the fancy technology and a scooter that no one wants may have a card up their sleeves. The Segway Centaur is a concept that they are checking peoples reaction to. Its an electric quad that can be handled like a mountain bike. Your can see it in halting web video here. For a mix of pranks and wonder check out a new site called Hack-a-day. The site is designed to collect the best hacks from around the web for you. Make your own lava lamp, or run Mac OS X on an XBox anybody?

My

blog entry the other day regarding Microsoft CEO’s character assasination of iPod users like myself resulted in coverage in The Register, Mac Daily News, Afterdawn.com, Wired journalist Leander Kahney’s Cult of the Mac blog, and respected German blog IT&W.

Seriously if you need PR in the German market, these guys are the bomb.
