The only way is down for digital radio price tags.
Remember when bloggers, a few years back, “googlebombed” former US President George W Bush by linking his official biography to the phrase “miserable failure”? Well, along with the war in Iraq and a devastated economy, poor Obama looks to be inheriting Bush’s googlebomb, too.
Searches for “miserable failure” on Yahoo! and Live Search both bring up Obama’s bio. Google has successfully killed the bomb on its own search engine, however. In the meantime, one enterprising blogger has started a campaign to link the words “Cheerful Achievement” to Obama’s biography. Sounds good. Sign me up.
You can tell it’s the 21st Century. The good folks over at ReadWriteWeb have broken down the full text of Barack Obama’s inauguration speech yesterday into a tag cloud using Wordle.net. The results are interesting – “nation” and “new” come out on top. Click for embiggening.

This week, we’ve got the resoundingly topical Sock and Awe. Chuck shoes at President Bush, get dragged out, get beaten in jail. Well, the first of those three, anyway. I managed a paltry 5 hits before getting ‘removed’ from the room. You can do better than that. Click here, and then let us know what you got in the comments below.
Bush, fine purveyor of DAB radio wares, has announced that its popular, enticingly named TR04DAB DAB radio is getting a sensual makeover. It is now available in “luscious” Lip Gloss Red and also sports a “sexy” touchscreen control panel, specifically designed for over (under?) sexed people who need their audio appliances to ooze carnal vibes into the room as well as Radio 4.
It’s old and new coming together in blissful harmony, like Barbara Windsor and Daniel Radcliffe having a great big sloppy snog. Kind of. Well, Bush’s new DAB radio is a blend of retro styling with thoroughly modern touchscreen technology, anyway.
Bush has added to the large number of docking systems battling for your Christmas cash with the IP001, which, as you'd expect, plays your tunes whilst charging your player. Output is via 2 x 5W RMS speakers, which provide…
