Dickie's Quickies

Google plans on doubling - at least - the capacity of their Gmail.

See how a Kansas blogger spanks Anne Coulter - figuratively, of course.

Terri Schiavo's parents plan to sell their donor list to a direct marketing firm. This was confirmed in a story in the New York Times (subscription required). No matter how one felt about this topic, isn't this further act disgusting?

My friend, Archie, first pointed this story out to me about a guy, angry with someone because that person sold a virtual weapon for a video game to someone for real cash, stabbed the person he loaned the weapon to. To add a further twist to the story, the guy who "owned" the original virtual weapon, tried to file a stolen property report with the police.

Here's an older report on how the RIAA's claims that they were losing sales due to downloads was, at the time, at odds with the Nielsen's Ratings system measurements. It's all in how you slice and dice the statistics.
