Anyone know any printers who would make cards like the Moo cards? I’d prefer giving an Irish company some cash but it also comes down to value for money so I’d be happy to use a Polish company or one like that. I want cards like the Moo cards but I don’t want a Flickr background. I wonder have Moo trademarked the size? 🙂

Fergus Cassidy mentions a firm in the UK offering libel/slander/copyright violation insurance to journalists and he inquired (no word back yet) as to whether they cover bloggers.
The one bit that caught my eye and made me say “can they really do that?” was this:
More and more publications are now requiring freelancers to indemnify against libel/slander/defamation as a condition of accepting the story
I would have thought the publications as the ones publishing were the ones liable, contract or no. What’s the point in writing for the big orgs if they are not going to protect you?
A thread on boards.ie and another on the radiowaves forum are saying that the lads behind 104FM’s Strawberry Alarm clock were escorted out of the 104FM offices today. Rumours are that they are replacing Marty Whelan. About bloody time 2FM!
All mention of the lads seems to have disappeared from the 104fm site too.
Mininova reaches their billionth download. Yes, a billion torrent files download. Scary.
Tara Hunt on the Boutique Generation. Tara Hunt is all kinds of cool. I’d suggest subscribing to her blog. Well worth it.
Bebo launch Bebo Authors – An interface to Amazon. They seem to have beaten mySpace to the punch. Surprised there hasn’t been more social networking sites doing this with the demographics they have.
I now have a Wii. It’s a lot of fun and certainly can make you fit. This seems like a cool game for it.
Speaking of Casio, my username for Second Life is casio Tone. Say hello. (If I ever log back in.)
Via linkmap. Celebrities get tasered. More great american TV. Eric Estrada needs to get better plastic surgeons.
9 minutes past 9 and the Ticketmaster site is saying no tickets available. Ticketmaster phone is engaged. Arghhh.
The Bebo Award, run off the Irish Awards Bebo profile is going well enough. 100 profiles have been entered. The more profiles, the better the prize. Right now the prize is an iPod Shuffle. It will turn into an iPod Nano if over 400 people are entered and it will become something a little better again if over 1000 profiles are entered. Hat tip to the marketing pilgrim.
More Gardai on the interweb. The pay isn’t great one Garda says. To start with maybe.
I was speaking to God earlier today and sadly he made no mention f you.
Please pass the word along.
The French protest 2007. (BBC Story.) They want to stay in 2006.
Piaras is on the money for this one.
Get Smart Opening (first version):
The old 3-way gun trick:
Sweet, glorious specs of the 11.6 millimeter device (that’s frickin’ thin, by the way) include a 3.5-inch wide touchscreen display with multi-touch support, 2 megapixel cam, 8 GB of storage, and
3Gradio — and amazingly, it somehow runs OS X. A proximity sensor disables the touchscreen when it’s close to your face, while the iTunes support rocks CoverFlow
I so so so so so so so so sooooooooo want one.
Update: It does not have 3G as we know it. It has 3G radio, whatever the hell that is.
