X-treme teddy.

How many of you wish that you had a teddy with you all the time? Well you can now!
With XTeddy (now with attitude) Well this for when Cow isn't around... cause he might feel less loved.

Xteddy. The other white meat.


But for you all who don't have Cow's this is perfect. However you must know this Teddy comes with some attitude


-Ok, listen up!

I hate to break this to ya' chump, but ya' gotta' quit with this •ten•teddy garbage. I talked it over with my new buddy here, Ken Bruseth (now •thats• a man's name) and he thought I should shoot you off an email telling you how I feel. Here's the deal, dude. This putting the number ten in my moniker makes me feel like a sissy. I ain't no Bo Derek! I'm a teddyman, not a teddygirl. Dang, you don't know what yer doin ta me feller. All my teddy buds are crackin' on me all the time - "Hey tenteddy, are you really a 10?" Ha, ha! Out go the lights! I'm tired of whooping my teddy friends' butts over this silly ass name you hung on me. My paws are all bruised and sore from thumpin' noggins, and if you ever bothered to pay attention to me (sniff), you'd see that I don't look that happy. Guess why: it's that stinkin' name!!!! So here's the deal. From now on I want to be known as "•EX•Teddy". Ya got that? Yeah, I can hear it now: EXTeddy, the teddy formerly known as tenteddy. You havta admit, it's got a ring to it, doncha think so? Makes me sound tough. I •am• a rough n' tuff, good old, ted-dude-boy (as in "good old boy" - Get with it! Wake up!). Ya hear what I'm sayin'? Besides that, if the EX thing was good enough for my brother, Malcolm, it's good enough for me. So layoff of me and get this name thing right. And don't try handing me any of that "a rose would smell the same …" bull either. It's the name that smells! So pal, SHAPE UP!!!!! Don't make me hurt you. Take it easy greazzy.

Later Gator…

EXTeddy-



So if you want a teenage Teddy bear for your loving then here:
He's a hop, jump and a click away from your loving hard drive

What EMI and Apple announcement really means

Well If you haven't heard about this Apple and EMI have announced that Apple Itunes will be selling DRM free music at higher bit quality rates. This bodes well for Apple Itunes in some of the ways they mention.

First


  • They will be selling high 256 bit rates
  • Will be compatible with all MP3 players
  • Will be more expensive, in the United States it will be 1.29$ for a track instead of the 99 cents.
  • Only EMI tracks will be available as of May
  • Will be worldwide
  • Will not apply for videos
  • Steve Jobs hopes that half of the Itunes Store will be DRM by the end of the calendar year

Cows real thoughts on Toki-chan while she mouth sings

However, this information has more under the surface then what was told to us (and some that isn't

  • First of all, since many people I know have not been using Itunes for the fact that they can tell they can tell that difference will sign on.
  • Since EMI tracks will be worldwide like this, it could imply that I could go and buy Utenda Hikaru (Japanese artist under EMI) and buy the 220¥ (I assume, since everything seems to be taking a 20 cent/pence/euro upturn) and be able to play it on my itunes without having to re-authorize it to a Japanese Itunes
  • Steve Jobs also mention that they expect to have Itunes half DRM free by end of this year, how can he do that when many of the major labels have opposed this? Two reasons:

    -Steve Job with his reality distortion field, may be able to show the record companies that they can make money using EMI as the example (if it works out), combined with the higher bit rate (maybe to make it harder and longer to transport over P2P networks, kinda like HD isn't feasible over this yet either due to the hours of loading, not sure, gave this up in high school) may be able to sway some of the others (except Warner; wouldn't expect them to come for a while)

    -The other indie artist who were against DRM. Bare naked Ladies is a big example, who won't sell on companies with DRM, but have said if Itunes would offer DRM free would love putting on their music.


I except the second reason to be the first artist other than EMI to come on board as DRM free on Itunes, however, I expect that for the hope of half the Itunes store to be DRM free that he will half to get atleast one more label on, or more. As more me? I'm going on Ebay and buying that Yen Itunes card for that chance to get all the music from Utenda Hikaru including this Kingdom Heart hit
