NFL Playoffs Pumped for iPods

Not precisely sure who the market is for day old radio broadcasts. If you can't get to a tv to watch the game, you can probably find it on the radio and hear it live. If it's the next day, you can probably find the highlights, which is usually more than enough. If you care enough about football to PURCHASE this recording, you will probably know the live score. If the recording comes with a license to reuse the broadcast as you see fit, it may be worth it for access to the soundbites.

NFL Playoffs Pumped for iPods

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) รข€“ Starting next week, football fans will have a new way to listen to games: on their iPods. The National Football League on Tuesday announced an agreement with Audible Inc., an online distributor of audiobooks and other spoken-word programming, to make recordings of this year's re-maining playoff games available for portable audio players, including Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod. The re-cordings will be available for purchase through Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple's iTunes Music Store, which has an existing relationship with Audible, and other sites that sell audio over the Internet, according to the NFL and Audible. The first recordings of football games for sale under the agreement will be this Sunday's NFL confer-ence championships, which will be available on the Internet the following morning.

Crazy US Map

"We can correct for this by making use of a cartogram, a map in which the sizes of states have been rescaled according to their population. That is, states are drawn with a size proportional not to their sheer topographic acreage -- which has little to do with politics -- but to the number of their inhabitants, states with more people appearing larger than states with fewer, regardless of their actual area on the ground. Thus, on such a map, the state of Rhode Island, with its 1.1 million inhabitants, would appear about twice the size of Wyoming, which has half a million, even though Wyoming has 60 times the acreage of Rhode Island.
