…Misu lets you transfer your iPod music for free?


Misu is a new iPod music transfer utility for Macs that makes it easy to transfer music between two iPods.

Simply select the source and the destination and let Misu go to work. It then compares the two iPods, figures out what’s missing, and syncs them together.

Currently it’s only in super-secret private beta mode, but courtesy of TUAW, the super-secret code that you’ll need to get a copy is 48372.

Plus, if you try out Misu during the beta phase, they’ll give you a free and licensed copy of the final version as a thank you. (This code is only good for today, but if you miss out, you can still get a free copy of Misu by becoming a fan of the Misu Facebook Page by the end of March.)

…Diesel Sweeties is now free?

Diesel Sweeties

Diesel Sweeties (a fantastic web comic) is celebrating its 8th birthday by releasing the entire archive (nearly 2,000 comics) for free via Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial license. (You are free to non-commercially redistribute, archive and share in any format you like as long as you don’t edit the comics or remove credit and links.)

Volume One is out now, and a new volume will be released each week until the entire collection is available, so prepare to get out the reading glasses and become a fan of DS all over again.

…Bob Ostertag is giving away his music?

Bob Ostertag w00t

Bob Ostertag’s w00t “is a free, internet-only release composed entirely from fragments of music from video games”.

Created as a collage of computer game sound and image, it’s Bob’s first release “to skip the CD-for-sale stage and go directly to free Internet download, under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license”.

What does that mean?

It means Ben encourages you to “download, copy, send to your friends, remix, mutilate, and mash-up” his music as long as you share in the same manner.

If only all music could be so free.

…DYH is now covered by a Creative Commons License?

Creative Commons

I finally got around to adding a Creative Commons license to all of the content that I post here on DYH. I’ve gone with an Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License, which means that anyone can remix, tweak, and build upon my work, even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit my work, and license their new creations under identical terms. Basically, it’s like a copyright, but anyone can use what I post, as long as they give me credit, and they agree to let others use what they post of mine. It’s a free world, and I love to see ideas shared and built upon, I just want to make sure that credit is given where credit is deserved. If you have anything that you’ve considered copyrighting, I highly suggest that you check out the options that Creative Commons Licenses offer. You may just find a perfect way to share with the world your thoughts and ideas.
