Great video, great song, great to see Common back with new material.

I didn’t want to clutter the previous post (the one with all the videos) will my thoughts so I figured I’d write this separately. I will just start off with this, Microsoft Surface is ridiculously cool. Not only is this technology cool and interesting, it will also be very useful.
Side note: My big dream job is working on ways to improve the human/computer interaction because frankly, it sucks right now. The way in which people interact with computers is so far from intuitive that it’s almost laughable considering the kind of technology we now have available to us.
What I previously said leads me to say this, I think this Surface technology is a HUGE step in the right direction for improving this human/computer interaction. I’ll base most of my comments on the videos posted in the previous post so if you’re confused then watching a few of those videos may help to illuminate what I’m talking about.

Eat that AACS. You can try to stop a few individuals, but you have already lost the war.
Music site Last.fm bought by CBS Last.fm logo Last.fm connects users who share the same music tastes Social music site Last.fm has been bought by US media giant CBS Corporation for $280m (Â£140m), the largest-ever UK Web 2.0 acquisition.
This REALLY sucks. I think we all know that CBS will effectively destroy Last.fm. There is very little doubt that Last.fm won’t make enough money for CBS in its current form and therefore will undergo major changes that will promptly destroy the thriving community that has flourished there.
What a sad day. I guess it’s time to start looking for a new company/site similar to Last.fm because it’s only a matter of time before CBS destroys it.
Update: For whatever it’s worth, here is the letter I just sent to several people at CBS:
To Whom It Concerns,
On behalf of the millions of users of Last.FM, we beg you, please do not destroy the website and community we have all come to love. If you make significant changes to the currently thriving community you will see millions of your newly acquired customers/users leave in a mass exodus. This is coming from a long time dedicated Last.fm user, please do not destroy the site we have come to love.

- Nothing like a little Billie Holiday before bed #
- I get the distinct impression some people just like to hear themself talk. They don’t even say anything useful, they just talk for no reason #
- Busy day…wow, that went VERY fast. After work I have to return my phone, and then head to the gym…. #
- Absolutely gorgeous weather here…maybe about 75, sunny, and a light breeze. Good thing the day went by fast…I wanna go play in the sun. #

Unfortunately, you need to have an account at this site to read the reviews (I just realized this), but if you’re at all interested in this game it is worth it. Tons of information about what sounds like it could be a great game (that will be quite proficient at sucking away countless hours of my life, ala Diablo 2).
