Ring tones from They Might Be Giants
I'm a huge fan of the band They Might Be Giants. They're always coming up with something new and quirky. And now I can share that quirky love with John and Jane Q. Public with the help of the new They Might Be Giants ring tones!
Three tones to chose from. Let the entire city block know you are getting a call by choosing the brash "Phone Phone Phone." Or chose the more mellow ensemble, "Ring Ring." Finally, do your part for full disclosure with the "Call Connected thru the NSA" ring tone. Get 'em while they're hot!

Microsoft's new "We ShareYour Pain" project
Have you ever been running a program that unexpectedly quit? Do you feel frustrated and angry? Wish you could convey that to the programmer responsible for the buggy code?
Well, now you can! Thanks to the new Microsoft© "We ShareYour Pain" project: leverage customer feedback for software quality. To find out more, go to the IT's ShOwtime WSYP Project page and click on "See a preview". Note: the page seems to work best in IE (it's Microsoft© after all).
Yes, it's a joke. But made all the more funny because it's produced by Microsoft© employees! Thanks to Ben and his co-workers for passing it around. As they deftly noted, the gag takes a while to get rolling, but stick with it because it's quite funny. Great deadpan humor!
