Only audio, but BBC Radio Wales will be carrying Sunday's Doctor Who concert in Cardiff live from 6pm (10am Pacific). It'll subsequently appear on BBC1 over Christmas. Listeners outside the UK might need to make use of a proxy to appear to be coming from within the country.

Cyriak's animation mix - a compilation of b3ta animations of impressively surreal proportions. Trippy stuff, with a cool videogame style soundtrack too.

The trailer for Paprika suggests it'll be an anime feature to watch out for, particularly coming from Satoshi Kon, late of Perfect Blue and Tokyo Godfathers, and looks to be even more of a mindtrip than before. Oddly 80s animation style..

Finally, real mobile net.access might be coming to the UK - 3's launching flat-rate data. Details remain sketchy, but one main leg of the plan is Skype - rather than trying to ban it, VoIP will be part of the core of it all. Pricing will be available in December, expected to be "lower than £18/month" on top of their existing mobile plan.

Following on from a conversation with mycroftb, I was wondering if anyone knew how quickly rabbit fur grows, compared to human hair. Is it roughly the same timescale? I was just pondering dyeing my fur, if I could, and wondered how long it'd take for the color to grow out again.

Assuming it wasn't made for them, does anyone recognise the soundtrack on this Wii commercial?

Oooh.. someone's posted a little clip of "Butterscotch", a toy animatronic pony I noted a while back. She doesn't walk, unfortunately, but her head movements are rather cool to see - and she'll apparently take up to 200lb on her back. ^_^

This thread from AppleInsider talks about the much rumored Apple cellphone, including contributions in the comments from someone claiming to have worked on part of its functionality. Nothing revolutionary like teleportation, but if the claims are true, they'll be applying the same iTunes/iPod seamlessness, much as Microsoft did with the Zune and WMP.
 
 
 
 
 
 
What sort of price are they fetching? ISTR the tag mentioned in the original article wasn't all that bad, considering the size and complexity - somewhere around $300, I think. Pretty easy choice: I'd go for a Wii and a Butterscotch, rather than just a PS3. =:) (Or if we're thinking big, a 17" MacBook Pro and an island on SL. Or a cluster of islands)

Hmm. Could try making a full-size version that propelled itself in the same way as the real thing, and beat out that other craft for realism.. ^_^ Pretty amazing the power a dolphin tail can develop, but then, that's a hell of a lot of muscle there. (Gods, actually getting to touch one last year.. three, actually, including one quite elderly resident - somewhere around 35 or 40, ISTR)
