A9 Maps

Post by Mark

A9.com has done a minor cleanup to their starting page, they also fixed up their Maps page. While maps.google.com shows you satellite images of countries, maps.a9.com is pictures from the ground of store fronts. Of course not all the cities are available and its only US cities but its still really cool. Using maps.a9 I was able to show Nat every shop I passed by when I was in New York on vacation. Shops which I had forgotten their names I was able to find by maps.a9. Try it out. [Link]

Playing with Strangers

Post by Mark

A group of people in San Fransisco experimented in the idea of multiplayer gaming with strangers on the streets. They would for example take out their Sony PSP’s while waiting in line at the movies and start playing against each other hoping that someone else in line would see them and want to join in. Their experiment didn’t work out as planned since no one joined their games but the idea is cool though. I personally carry my PSP wherever I go and I usually have 2 games with me. It would be cool if while waiting in line at the bank I notice someone else with a PSP and we end up playing a multiplayer game together while we wait. Maybe once the PSP really starts becoming more popular here in Kuwait that would be possible, so far since the PSP came out I have only met like 2 other people who own PSP’s. [Link]

Beckham Faces Tattoo Battle

Post by Mark

I just read this article below and I think its ridiculous, how could David Beckham not have the rights to a tattoo located on his own body??

—————–

David Beckham is facing a legal battle over who owns the right to his tattoos, because body artist Louis Malloy fears the British soccer star is making money from his designs.

Malloy designed and inked nine of Beckham’s tattoos, including the famous guardian angel on his upper back, and is determined to sue should the Real Madrid ace use the images in an advertising campaign.

The 42-year-old claims Beckham, who is married to ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, tried to force him to sign a confidentiality agreement, but he refused.

Malloy says, “I was contacted recently and told they wanted to use some of them in a campaign. I said we’d have to draw up a license agreement but then it got too complicated. So I said, ‘I own the copyright, they are my intellectual property, I drew them, I didn’t copy them from other sources.’

“They still think they’re the owners of the images but if they use them without my permission I’d sue. There’s no doubt about it.” [Source]
