SATURDAY SHOW EDITION

WHY SHOULD YOUR BOSS HAVE ALL THE FUN?
(via Geek Press)

A new trend emerging is people outsourcing their own jobs to India! The Times of India is reporting that indivuals who telecommute have discovered that they can hire an equivalent dopleganger in India to do their work for 1/4th of what they get paid in the US. All without their bosses even knowing. Some, are taking on second jobs and hiring on more help.

Only in America.

DON'T TRIP OVER THE VIRTUAL OTTOMAN
(via linkfilter)

Who knew that Dick Van Dyke is a maverick Computer Animator? Self taught, Dick has created a virtual Dick who dances with him on stage. Opens up tremendous possibilities for a virtual Mary Poppins, I think!


BACK TO THE FUTURE
(via gadgetmadness)

When BACK TO THE FUTURE II came out, everyone wanted the hoverboard that Marty McFly used to escape Biff and his gang of ruffians. In fact, an urban legend was born saying that Universal was going to license the technology to sell them. But it was just movie magic. UNTIL NOW.

Someone has figured out how to build a hover board and has published the HOW TO on the net. Get it here.


SPAM, WONDERFUL SPAM
(via slashdot)

Slashdot has an interesting article on the day in the life of a spammer. Turns out that about 1 in 20 AOL users actually respond to it. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?! It also comments that the federal CAN SPAMM act is turning the US into the SPAM capital of the world. You're tax dollars at work.
