This 'news'... it vibrates?
Yes, more than six months after it appeared here
on MeFi, New Scientist has just found out about the vibrating broom. I can feel my confidence in them dripping away...

We like the cars, the cars that go "Vroom"
All that quiet too much for you to take when you're tooling around town?
These inventors have reverse engineered the noise reduction technology to make a product
that can reproduce "the endearing and unique audible sound signatures of 1950s, 1960s and 1970s classic cars and motorbikes."
will probably want a piece of the action to help save wear and tear on kids' vocal chords as they play Fast And the Furious
Would anyone pay for this hi-fi feature? Or is this a non-starter only good for a few cheap laffs and links?

New Scientist release a copyleft article on......wait for it......copyleft.
In it, they discuss what's going on in the world of Open Source and how the meme is spreading from software into other areas, like encyclopedias and law. It concludes saying that open source is currently good for things that don't need to be confidential and do need to be consistently upgraded/changed. Does open source have a chance, or is it just a passing fad? via slashdot

Mathematician Bums Out Entire Scientific Community
His "Omega" number--infinite and incalculable--guts hopes for pure mathematics, physicists' hopes for a Theory of Everything, and is just in general kind of bafflingly cool. Builds on the whole Godel/Turing foundation of hopelessness!
