This dashboard widget kicks ass. Really slick and works like a charm. Now if it would only support textile-defined tables…
How cool is that: Tripods — a game that uses Google Maps for its game board. Work with other players to destroy evil tripods that look suspiciously much like Google Maps’ pink markers with two extra legs attached. :-D Way cool.

The first digital music download service that gets it right, in my opinion, is Warp Records Bleep.
I discovered it through Chris Heatcote’s blog (thanks Chris) and decided to give it a go. Signing up is painless, browsing through the music works reasonably well (although they could take a few hints from services like Odeo when it comes to interface design) and buying an album is easy, you can even use PayPal, so no looking around for your credit card. Best of all is the fact that the files are plain mp3s without DRM. Lovely. Give them a try!
Finally, Odeo’s opened it’s doors to the world. Signing up went really quick, and I was surprised to see that they have some nice integration with the latest edition of iTunes going on. I’ll maybe post a more detailed review at open.info.nl (Dutch) later this weekend.
