1. http://www.comingzune.com/ - An advertising site for Microsoft's Zune. Worth looking at for the quirky design and interesting music videos / graphics. "The Second Coming of the Monkey God" is weirdly good.
2. http://www.msdewey.com/ - A web search engine with a human face.
3. IE7 was released a few days ago! If you don't have it installed yet, I recommend installing it. (You want to be one of the cool kids, right?)
4. www.hopeisemo.com/ is an amusing mockumentary/videoblog by a teenage girl. Feel the angst...
5. The Decemberists have a new CD out (The Crane Wife). We saw them perform this summer at ZooTunes, and they were awesome live. A safe purchase even though I've not heard the album.
6. DJ Shadow has a new CD out too. This requires listening-to before I decide if I like it.
