Vacation Links

leave a comment »

I have a long Thanksgiving break this year (something I must admit I’m very thankful for). Here’s a few links to celebrate my good fortune.

* Google is now hosting thousands of images from Life magazine dating back to the 1800s. At right: my guy Albert Einstein. More good off-the-top-of-your-head searches at the Valve.

* Boston College will stop offering incoming students email addresses; instead, they will redirect email to a private service of the students’ choice. In other words, the moronic email addresses they made up as a joke in eighth grade will now follow BC students forever.

* The new MacBook Pros (like mine!) come saddled with major DRM problems. The good news is that your machine is only crippled for media you purchase legally; pirated media still works just fine.

* Pushing Daisies has been canceled. It’s a shame.

* Two pop-criticism reviews of Quantum of Solace I liked: “Guilt-Flavored Ice Cream” and “Quantum of Anti-Imperialism.”

* Nabokov, on YouTube.
