According to this article on CNN, this homley little fellow pictured to the left there, will be the first 'psuedo-cyborg'. I say 'psuedo' because he's not actually replacing any major organs (or anything really useful for that matter) with silicon. Here's a blurb from it:

READING, England (CNN) -- This summer, a professor plans to take a step closer to becoming a cyborg -- part human, part computer -- by implanting a silicon chip that communicates with his brain.

Jesus Christ! Are we gonna let this Gomer Pyle look-a-like go down in history as the champion of the human race's silicon/flesh union? We'll be the laughing stock of the universe when this shit gets out.

Now lemme explain the CDDB for the uninitiated. You ever pop a cd into your computer and magically it retrieves the artist, album name, and all the song names? That was your CD playing software contacting the CDDB. Now, a while ago these guys started charging a fee (to the people who write the CD software, not you) for using their service. Cool, whatever, way it goes, its their company. Of course, right after this about 5 different free, open source projects opened with the same purpose (BUT FOR FREE!). Way it goes. Tuff shit. Now, thanks to the bull shit patent laws, all of these free versions must be shut down because the CDDB has a patent on the round about 'Method and system for finding approximate matches in a database.' Well golly seargent! I never knew! This aught to shutdown every search engine on the internet! I think I'm going to patent the 'Method and system for kinda doing something with somekind of computing hardware which results in some sort of output.' Cool, eh?

Sheesh. Anywho, as far as this site goes, the commenting system for each news update seems to be working fine. Also, you may or may not notice that I've changed some font colors around a bit to sort of 'go' with the general color scheme of the site a bit more. Oh yea, the random quote generator is up, its at the top of the page above the news title (so start entering quotes, writers!).

The cyborg story was swiped from DotCult.com.
The CDDB story was swindiggled from Slashdot.

Both were stolen with love. If I've misconstrued anything, drop a line in the comments for this article.

Thanks, I jacked it up a bit, but I kinda wanna keep it compact as to fit on the screens of losers who still use 640x480. On second though, fuck them, get a real monitor ass wipes. And I have a kewl intornet H4x0r name, why do you call me brent in public?

As for the cyborg guy, THIS chip is actually supposed to communicate with his nervous system, but like you said, he always makes gradiose claims.

(BTW hardgeus, don't you think I should be able to get a job with the mack-master skills it takes to make a bad ass, dynamic site such as this?)

That cyborg guy has pulled a big publicity stunt every year. He always claims that he can do all kinds of crazy shit, but in the end he just sticks a radio transmitter in his arm again.
(BTW, brent...you may want to set the cols property of this textarea to a higher value)
