Just read this Wired article about the band Minibosses that rocks classic NES game soundtracks. Article also mentions another similar band NESkimos. No lyrics, just straight-ahead guitar rock that isn't half bad. Apparently no Baseball Simulator 1.000 - my all-time favorite game - yet.
A post over at my buddy Kevin Lisota's site just prompted me to evaluate the NewsGator news aggregation software/service. Subscribing to the monthly service seems to offer the two features I most want: a way to read syndicated content from my Windows Mobile Smartphone and the ability to synchronize subscriptions across multiple devices. Seems a little pricey, but I may just have to sign up as I regularly access my favorite sources from three different devices depending on what I'm doing and where I'm at.
Hollywood Records teams up with Xingtone to deliver ring tones direct to consumers, cutting mobile operators out of the equation.
