…NewsFire is now free?

NewsFire

After NetNewsWire decided to stop selling its program and to instead just give it away, NewsFire must have gotten jealous, because they’ve just announced that their program will be free as well.

Since NewsFire has no online component, and thus, cannot use your data in any way (NNW went free in exchange for your attention data) I’m not exactly sure how NF plans to make money, but where there’s a will, there’s a way, right?

Either way, there are now two fantastic players in the free desktop RSS reader game, and that’s fantastic!

…Ken Block can fly?

Ken Block

I am now officially jealous of Ken Block.

After getting to jump his rally prepped Subaru WRX 171 feet for a new world record, he got to jump it over 70 feet in the snow for the cover of Snowboarder magazine.

The stunt was performed at New Zealand’s Snow Park Record, and used a specially prepared 55-foot ramp to put him alongside some very brave snowboarders during the jump.

I just hope Space Jam’s “I Believe I can Fly” played over his stereo the entire time.

…Treasure is meant to be hunted?

The World’s Biggest Treasure Hunt

Do you want to hunt treasure?

Are you jealous of Nicolas Cage?

The check out The World’s Biggest Treasure Hunt, put on by National Treasure: Book Of Secrets.

It might not take you to far away lands, but $100,000 and a new Mercedes-Benz is probably better than the scrap metal you’d find on your own anyways.

Start digging…
