With all sorts of people already starting to camp out at Best Buy stores around the United States for the new release of the Play Station 3, its important that they have everything they need to stay comfortable. Though it is a bit shocking that nine days before a game console release people are desperate enough to put their lives on hold and spend more than 200 hours in one place, I’ve compiled a list of 10 things to bring to a Best Buy camp out..

Texas is wanting us, the United States public, to pay attention to OUR borders. Ironic? I think not. They have installed a series of cameras along the border and set up live web feeds, free for anyone to watch. By simply spending two minutes and filling out a sign up form, checking your email for the password, and logging in, you can sit back and wait for some illegals to cross, then report any suspicious activity.

Ohio based company Universal Tube & Rollform Equipment Corp. has filed a lawsuit against YouTube Inc. claiming that in the recent past months it has cost a fortune to keep their website – utube.com – hosted due to the high demands of Internet users expecting to see youtube.com. Universal Tube’s President Ralph Girkins said that they have moved the website five times in attempts to stay ahead of high demands and traffic loads of YouTube users.The lawsuit states that YouTube Inc. stop using the domain youtube.com or pay Universal Tube the cost of creating a new domain. Wow? What a whole $8.99 USD from Godaddy? What’s sad is that I’m sure the lawsuit is march larger than the cost of a new domain. Perhaps they should just propose a sale of utube.com to someone looking to illegally host a link farm? Or even smarter, sell it to YouTube Inc.What’s funny about this whole story reaching news headlines is that Universal Tube’s hits are going to increase even more now! They should have kept it under wraps and simply sold the domain. Who cares who was there first.

Reuters is reporting that News Corp.’s MySpace.com has acquired a new technology to prevent users from posting unauthorized copyrighted music on their pages. This could dull-down the popular social networking site which boasts to be originally founded on the principles of allowing small-time bands and aspiring musicians a chance to share their music and stay connected to their fans. On the flip side, this could spell major changes in the way MySpace operates its music playing services. Perhaps this could mean big money in the upcoming future, if the cards are played right.

It’s almost impossible for me to drive anywhere in Los Angeles these days without seeing a ton of soccer mom SUV’s that have the ever trendy family car decal stickers on the back window. Although most of the cars I see with the family car decals do not include each family members name, I am concerned about the few that I have seen that do. It raises a very important matter in regards to family safety.
As we all known by now, the popular video sharing site YouTube was acquired by Google for $1.65 billion in stock earlier this month. YouTube’s short lived publicity has been under the microscope of copyright infringement amongst other things, and today, it is sad to say that my most favorite videos on YouTube are now gone.
The great folks over at Spamhaus release a weekly report on the worst spammers in the world. The list is compiled of the 10 people or organizations that Spamhaus believes are the worst career spammers and who are causing the most damage on the Internet this week.
You’ll note #3 (Michael Lindsay / iMedia Networks) is based in California, so I think I’m going to gather up a bunch of friends and baseball bats and go on the hunt for this guy. If you are wondering how someone in the United States can run a business strictly based on spamming, well so am I. The obvious statement is that he runs off-shore hosted servers and everything is done as legit as possible to avoid the long arm of the law, but someone needs to do something about these people making a fortune from spam.
That is where the bats come in..
