Submission + - Free, legal music for college students

theundergroundjazzman writes: "A former Napster executive intends to set up a new music provider in a bid to challenge iTunes: "Mike Bebel has a plan for inducing young people to pay for downloaded music: Give them all the songs they want for free while they're still in college, then start charging them a fee when they're out of school and gainfully employed...""

ModDB Mod of the Year Winners Chosen 24

TheRealFritz writes "It's that time of year again and ModDB has released the winners of their annual Mod of the Year contest. Gamers who like to go beyond their initial investment have chosen their favorites for 2006: Point of Existence and Project Reality according to ModDB's Mod of the Year competition. The contest took in over 80,000 votes and narrowed the field from 4,000 mods to the Top 5 released and unreleased mods, as well as a handful of genre awards and the Editor's Choice awards. Perhaps it is ironic that the two top mods of 2006 are both for the Battlefield 2 platform, which has been abandoned by its developer and is notoriously buggy and difficult to mod. Despite these problems, both mods went on to beat out mods from the ever popular Half-Life 2 platform. The much better maintained Source engine is represented with the winners of the third through fifth places: Goldeneye: Source, The Hidden: Source and Minerva."
