And the clock runs out... - ABC Sports is finally going away. Disney will use the ESPN branding for all of its sports programming. But so as to not confuse people, it will be sometimes called "ESPN on ABC" - sigh. Or am I giving sports fans too much credit if I think it's unnecessary to have the "on ABC" as part of the name?

Pollution Watch - An organization has figured out a way to equip pigeons with small devices that allow them to monitor air quality and report it back via a cell signal with precise local measurements courtesy of GPS technology. They release the pigeons and the pigeons meander through the area they want to monitor, at a much lowe r altitude and a much cheaper cost than anything else they've tried. The Google Map element allows you to see in real time if they're about to poop on your car. (pigeonblog)
