Things I Discovered While Reading Wired Magazine

1. There's a website called Fuck You, Penguin. It's a cute animal photo blog with "irreverent" commentary. Okay, fine, curse words and a bad attitude. And the emphasis is more on the caption's vituperative qualities, less on the animal pictured. But as an ironic rejoinder to something like CuteOverload, FUPenguin serves its noble purpose.

2. There's this neat downloadable screensaver/widget called PolarClock, available for Mac or PC. It's a clock done in colorful concentric circles...uh, it's hard to describe. And I'm sleepy. So go to the PolarClock website, by Pixelbreaker. You'll like it.

3. There's a parody book called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! It's Jane Austen, plus the flesh-eating living dead. Here's the NY Post's take on the books.
