Experimenting with Audacity.
This is the first time I've edited an MP3 track using Audacity, I've used effects, but this is the first attempt at slicing/dicing a track from various pieces. End result of the experiment was this ringtone for my mobile.

Vince Vaughn Hollywood Career Goes Belly-Up - Forced to pose for stock photography to keep Bel-Air Mansion from FORECLOSURE!

Oh sure... the folks at +Adweek are trying to put this off as some kind of joke but we all know that Vince's career has been on the rocks lately.

With this on your resume you can kiss your Oscar dreams goodbye Vince!

Sounds exciting, but I would wait before throwing all your eggs in this basket. Google could easily get bored again and shutter this long before your 2 year contract expires.
Google has confirmed for the first time that it plans to offer connectivity directly to mobile users in the U.S., but a senior executive downplayed the competition it would be to major U.S. cellular carriers.

Ditching Your Smartphone Bill and Going Wi-Fi Only
Do you really need a phone company? First it was ‘cutting the cord’ to cable-TV providers—and now wireless carriers

It is almost impossible to imagine life without a cellphone. But imagining life without a cellphone bill is getting a lot easier.

For 30 days beginning in January, I disconnected my iPhone from AT&T Inc. and lived entirely off the free Wi-Fi connections that are available nearly everywhere.

Geeks! Are You Too Quiet To Be A Leader?
 ~ the second half of +Zoe Goodacre's +Forbes series on introverts...
There are certain accepted truths in business. One such truth is that leaders are gregarious and outgoing. But what if you're a quieter character? So 'obviously' you lack what it takes to be a business leader? Really?

AKA "Hire a cheap workforce we can easily exploit"
Claims that the H-1B program doesn't displace domestic IT workers is BS. Anyone that has worked an IT job in the US knows it. 
The H-1B visa turns 25 this year, and while it has seen many ups and downs, what hasn't changed is the fury IT workers feel after being displaced by people who hold H-1Bs. Two recent cases illustrate the problem.

What do you think about this +Richard Bliss?
An anonymous reader writes: In November, 2013, a Kickstarter project for a software-defined camera trigger scored £290,386 (~$450,000) in funding after asking for a mere £50,000. After almost a year of delays, they've now announced the project is dead. Their CEO has published a lengthy a...

Google+ SHAKEUP: Besbris subtracted, Horowitz added, confusion multiplied
~ Flip a coin: Photos or Streams?
In today's #ITBW  for +Computerworld, bloggers feel torn apart.
Is Google splitting up Google+? It appears so. There's also a new Google+ czar in town to right wrongs with Google's ailing social network. That is, as long as Google will let him.
