"Just Do It" by Heather Lindsley is the story this week on Escape Pod, the wonderful, free science fiction podcast, and it's a doozy, really one of the best stories they've featured so far. It's a darkly comic corporate dystopia where "chemical marketing" (shooting people with darts that make them crave french fries) rules the day. The reader, "Word Whore," does a terrific job of bringing the story to life, and Sal Fadhley does a nice intro on the role of special audio effects in sf. All in all, the best listen I've had all week -- all month, even.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]

Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan.
