They got a name for the winners in the world

By Angela Gunn


It is Igor Day at Tech_Space? Sure, let's declare -- two posts, two great finds from Igor or Igors. This time, our friends at Igor-the-naming-and-branding-agency have more info for those of you who enjoyed the Steely Dan saga last week. And why are they called Steely Dan, anyway? The band explains that it was a name scientifically chosen after a great deal of pot market research and the assistance of a computer called the Windsor Unimax 5000. Computers: They think good.

(And now if you'll excuse me, I am now going to go repeat with glee a phase I found elsewhere on my steelydan.com travels: "...and proceed to shake their memories like a madman shakes a dead geranium." Score one for the mother tongue there.)


More Mac-and-PC ad fun

By Angela Gunn


From Igor on the previous Mac/PC thread, a whole bunch of videos that parody the Mac-PC ads. The quality is variable and the content is definitely PG-13, but if you've been yearning to see Linux and its ilk represented or if you simply enjoy a random Newton bashing, fire it up. The site itself is Mac Spoofs, a shiny new video blog that kids because it loves. When I love something bloggy I RSS it, and I'll bet I'm not the only one who'll add this to an aggregator today.
