How to: Create iPhone ringtones from iTunes previews

Create iPhone ringtones from iTunes previews - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)
1. Create a new playlist. Drag unpurchased songs from the iTunes store into your playlist. The songs will retain their "Add Song" buttons and their price within the playlist. 2. Export your playlist. Select the playlist in the sources column. Control-click/Right-click the playlist name and choose Export Song List from the pop-up menu. 3. Save the playlist as plain text. Select Plain Text from the Format pop-up and save the playlist file to your desktop. 4. Open the playlist file. It is a tab-delimited file of columns, so you can open it up in Excel (my preference, make sure to option-drag the text file onto the Excel icon) or a text editor like TextEdit. 5. Locate the file URLs. Each file URL appears in the final Location column for each line. Copy the URL. 6. Download the files. In Safari 3.0, open the Downloads window (Windows->Downloads). Paste the URL into the Download window and allow the file to transfer. Your computer must be authorized to your iTunes account. You may want to try playing back the file in QuickTime Player just to be sure it downloaded correctly. If you're not a Safari 3.0 user, use your favorite alternate such as curl, wget, or so forth. 7. Rename. Give the file a more meaningful name than, for example, "mzi.rwgtaash.aac.p.m4p". Retain the .m4p extension. 8. Upload to the iPhone. Use your favorite method (iphoneinterface, sshfs, sftp, whatever) to copy the file to /Library/Ringtones on your iPhone. 9. Select the ringtone. On the iPhone, navigate to Settings -> Sound > Ringtone and select the new file. The ringtone will play back as you select it. Please note that some newer releases (including Nicole Scherzinger's Whatever U Like--thanks Drunk Dwarf) do not work as ringtones. I'm not sure why.

Department of defense creating parallel Earth

Sentient world: war games on the grandest scale | The Register
The DOD is developing a parallel to Planet Earth, with billions of individual "nodes" to reflect every man, woman, and child this side of the dividing line between reality and AR. Called the Sentient World Simulation (SWS), it will be a "synthetic mirror of the real world with automated continuous calibration with respect to current real-world information", according to a concept paper for the project. "SWS provides an environment for testing Psychological Operations (PSYOP)," the paper reads, so that military leaders can "develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners". SWS also replicates financial institutions, utilities, media outlets, and street corner shops. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and mobs will respond to various stressors.

Tycho on Mass Effect, Girls Kicking Ass

Penny Arcade! - The Tournemon, Part Three I have to admit, I also create a female avatar whenever I'm presented with the choice.
I am ready for some unapologetic Space Opera, where the S and the O stand proud in their capitalization. I think about it every day - not, like, at a set time, but given BioWare's pedigree I do allow a larger fantasy budget. I keep trying to remind myself that whoever they have waltzing around in the trailers, screenshots, and even on the cover really has nothing to do with you or I as players. The brute they displayed in the earliest video content, abusing "his" team and drawing "his" weapon on a meek barman, could just as easily have been a woman. Will be, almost certainly, on my own system - lo, until the red ring burns bright. . . . I'm not sure why I do this exactly, create female avatars, other than to say that when given the opportunity I want to see something in a game I haven't seen before. It's possible that it's some unreconstructed Whedonism that makes me do it: maybe this shouldn't be, but it's just better when it's a girl kicking the ass. The kicks are more frequent, and the damage to the ass more more enduring.
