Mix: Christmas Carol, Bar codes, London restaurants, Classrooms

Storynory has released the first podcast of “A Christmas Carol.” The dramatization will be podcast in three-parts—re-creating the way Dickens published most of his books as serials.

Jonathan Baldino, a freshman electrical-engineering student at the University of Colorado, was recently caught using homemade bar codes to purchase an iPod for $4.99.

Restaurant Spy has released a London Restaurant Guide that can be transferred and viewed on an iPod. The guide includes 300+ restaurant reviews organized by Location, Cuisine, Price, and Rating. 

In an article entitled “iPod popularity stirs tech debate in the classroom,” The Indianapolis Star looks at how personal electronics are affecting students.

That barcode story is hillarious! What a dumbass!

Ha ha! What a good plan!

What is weird though is rather than just repeating the events, the reporter also tells you how to replicate the crime.
- Do a goole search
- Download program
- Find actual barcode numbers for cheap items
- Replace stickers..
etc etc.

They even told us the problems with his plan. The kid was caught because the register said he was buying heaphones but he really got an iPod. So if you put the barcode for a 30GB iPod on a 60GB, or better yet the code for a shuffle on a 60GB they might not notice. They’d both show up as an iPod.

Um… yeah. Not that I would ever do such a thing, besides they practically told us what to do. I’m just pointing that fact out!

I just wanna sleep in my own bed tonight!
HA HA. What a weenie.
