TechCrunch is reporting that Songbird has a hardware deal with Philips – Bundled With Millions Of Portable MP3 Players

Don’t count Songbird out yet. The open source media player that’s increasingly positioning itself as an alternative to Apple’s iTunes has forged a deal with global electronics maker Philips. Under the agreement, which will be announced later today at CES, Songbird’s software will come bundled with the Philips line of GoGear portable music players, available worldwide.

Nice to see Songbird continue to grow…hey, where’d that cloud behind the bird’s butt go?

According to this article on MarketingDaily, I’m a Techfluential…though I could be a bit ‘old’ 🙂

Technology and electronics marketers may want to begin 2010 targeting a small but influential group of consumers who have some undue weight when it comes to influencing the purchases of others.

According to David Krajicek, managing director of technology with GfK Custom Research North America, this group of “techfluentials” is made up of highly connected individuals (indexing mostly under 30) who like to share their opinions about products that make their lives easier.

Or am I just an opinionated guy that likes to talk tech?

I managed to capture this shot in Emily Murphy park, on my way to work. I do like shooting the Moon when it nears the horizion.

I'm looking for tools to help me set up this year's Christmas dog photo session, and I came across this nifty online application:

"Photography lighting diagrams made easy with this online tool: use the drop down menus, select objects, drag them, rotate them, change their layers then export your diagram to JPEG or save its URL."
