Mix: NFL, South Park, Steve Ballmer, Google

The NFL said it is renegotiating its online licensing deal which expires in May. Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo are reportedly going after the new deal. “It’s wide open. We haven’t made any decisions yet,” said an NFL spokesman.

Apple and Comedy Central have added the new 10th season of South Park to the iTunes Music Store. A Season Pass is offered for $11.99.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said his kids don’t have iPods or use Google. “My children—in many dimensions they’re as poorly behaved as many other children, but at least on this dimension I’ve got my kids brainwashed: You don’t use Google, and you don’t use an iPod,” he said.

Google has confirmed it will be holding a music industry networking event this week but denied that the party was part of any plans to develop an online digital music store.

Now that’s just sad.

I can understand not using an iPod, but not using Google? You must be kidding! How in HELL do you avoid Google? Are there any other search engines at least as efficient as Google?

If there is, PLEASE let me know!

Someone call up the youth wellfare office responsible for Stevo’s place.

Bwaa, just imagine it “My dad lost it yesterday! You know how he can be, chairs and all! He just walked into my room while I googled for iPods…”

Hahaha. “...while I Googled for iPods.” Thats funny. Somehow I can see that. I guess the mental image is funnier than it would be in real life.
