Increase iPod battery by 70% – Engadget – www.engadget.com
It was nice of Apple to up the battery life on the new iPod to 12 hours from the sorta dismal 8 hours of juice the earlier ones got, but if you’re not quite ready to drop $300 or $400 to upgrade, NewerTech has a new replacement battery for first and second generation iPods that adds an extra 70% of battery capacity. The iPod originally came with a 1230mAh rated battery, while this Ultra High Capacity version tops out at almost double that, 2100mAh. Easily worth the $40 if it%u2019s really that good.
Could save you a few bucks.

To me it is always interesting to see what other people see in the world, and no better way to do it than with a camera and the Internet.
Over at Photoblogs.org there a links to a ton of photoblogs where shutterbugs post pictures everyday of people and places. The quality of these pictures are amazing, and captivating. It is easy to visit the links they have and get lost for hours.
I found this post in the Tivo Community forums that has a lot of cheat codes for the Tivo. The sorting my Now Playing list is exactly what I have been wanting. Now if I can just figure out what the “Window” button is on my remote. (Picture in Picture?)
I saw this link on /. today, and thought that this was hilarious.
It is a map of springfield where the Simpsons live. Definatly, a case of the ‘too-much-time-on-thier-hands’, but it is cool.
I often tought that airport security probably went a little overboard confiscating tweezers, and nail clippers and such…but check this out.
Looks like the Helix Player is now fully open source.
Check out this article on Slashdot.
Colin Charles wrote an article called The Spatial Way talking about how the new Nautilus works in Gnome 2.6.
It took me a day or so to get used to it, and I found that I actually like it better. It is kind of the way that windows explorer worked early on, when you open a folder it opens another explorer window.
I know that they have shortcuts to close the parent windows, however I would like to suggest another shortcut. I think that a SHIFT-click on the X in the top right corner should close the current window and all parents. (I used that a lot in the old style Windows) I may just head on over to Bugzilla for Gnome and suggest that.
Over at Osnews.com they had a link pointing to TweakHound’s Super XP Tweaking Guide. Apparently this is an evolving guide, and it is at version 5 now. It has a lot of tips on making your system faster and more secure.
Just looking over some of the stuff, a lot I already new, and some things that it recommended was new information to me.
In an attempt to keep a journal, I am starting my Blog once again.
Before, I was using B2, which was alright, but a little dated. I had some problems with someone, or some software out there, posting spam on my blog. Is it not enought that I already get it in my email?!? sheesh.
I also think that also there is a scam for bandwidth. I think this because some of the comments that I was getting had little to do with what I posted, and there were a lot of them. I believe that somehow, my blog was storing comments for someone elses message board. I dont know for sure, but a hunch.
So, I finally said forget it, and ditched the whole thing. Anywho, I am back up, and willing to take another stab at it.
I will be updating the look of the site, as this is basically a default template. I like it, but I want to make this something unique.
