Apparently I am. Spurred by a post about Pyrcast, which rips Pandora streams, over at Rod's place, I've been on a jag of researching the various Pandora unboxers. Pandora's Jar is especially nice, as it sports band info, last.fm integration and of course, MP3 saving. With java source.
So how am I predictable? I like the band Cake... and I've happily listened to the Cake channel for a few hours now. Guess I'm a sucker for subtle use of vocal harmony and major key tonality. Mmm, major key tonality. Bishop Allen and Rusty Truck were bands worth noting. Hopping nodes on the cobweb spun of the long tail.. or something like that.

Details on One Laptop Per Child
Ethan Zuckerman posts some details on the laptop:
- The screen is hinged to be used as an ebook or turned around. Amazing that this is strong enough for kids
- NIMH batteries were used because they accept a wide range of voltages
- The bunny ears are the WIFI antenna and fold down to shield the ports.
- Will be sold in lots of a million to governments.
- The WIFI chip can forward packets in a mesh network with the CPU turned off, using only .5 watts of power.
- EBook mode: screen is in black and white, CPU is off.
- Has 512MB of flash and 128MB RAM. Code is compressed; jffs2 filesystem spreads swap around the disk.
- Comes with mic jack and recording software.
- Subversive - chat app, wiki, collaborative content. Kids will learn better than teachers..it's theirs to bring home and learn.
