If you’re using Firefox for your browser with the Greasemonkey add-on (and face it: if you’re not, you should be), then check out this handy tip from Lifehacker yesterday: a handy tool to stream any MP3 file linked in any web page you visit. This means you can sample the song without downloading then playing it. Once the Greasemonkey script is loaded, any MP3 file link will show up with the text “[Play]” appended to the end of the link. Click that text and it’ll launch Google’s Inline MP3 Player right there in the page, complete with little controls. Handy for when you’re browsing MP3 blogs.
Israel doesn’t show any road or street naming at all on Google Maps. It seems as though they turned off details for that country last year after reports that Palestinian militants were using it to target Israeli rocket targets. I remember hearing those reports, but wondered whether it was a case of exaggeration. It seems that Google believe it was not.
I’m giving it a shot again: if you Twitter, I’m TheTiminator.
