An anonymous reader writes: DJ Danger Mouse famously fought with EMI of his Beatles/Jay-Z mashup "The Grey Album" seems to be battling with the label again. Rather than release his latest album and face legal issues with EMI, Techdirt is reporting that Danger Mouse will be selling a blank CD-R along with lots of artwork, and the buyer will be responsible for finding the music him or herself (and, yes, it's findable on the internets) and burning the CD.

Submission + - BSOD at Olympic Opening Projected for all to see (smh.com.au)

Whiteox writes: "Check this out! Sydney Morning Herald has reported that a BSOD was projected onto the roof of the National Stadium during the grand finale to the four-hour spectacular at the Olympics. Lenovo chairman, Yang Yuanqing chose to go with XP instead of Vista because of the complexity of the IT functions at the Games. His comment on Vista? "If it's not stable, it could have some problems," he said. Evidently Bill Gates attended the opening ceremony, so he must have witnessed it. I remember at least one other occasion where the BSOD followed him around. I was wondering if there were other public appearances of Bill and BSOD together?"
