Amazon Kindle DX Details Revealed
> Does anyone know if there are any plans to add full PDF support to the orriginal Kindle and Kindle 2?
I doubt it. The Kindle/Kindle2 screen is 6" diagonally, and you just can't see an 8.5x11 formatted PDF well enough on a 6" 167 ppi e-ink screen. There are a number of mechanisms for converting PDF to Kindle's format already, and they're mostly free. You can send the PDF to [username]@kindle.com and it will be converted and delivered directly to your Kindle for a fee... Or, send it to [username]@free.kindle.com and it will be converted and mailed back to you, where you can copy it on via the USB interface for FREE.
The best conversions for PDFs with images / detailed or complicated formatting is to do something which involved converting the PDF to 1/2 page images and displaying them in landscape on the Kindle. There are a few options for this here at Mobipocket.
Did Bat Hitch a Ride To Space On Discovery?
The bat's fate is pretty much guaranteed, mentioned in this article on UniverseToday.
Unfortunately, holding onto the fuel tank spelled certain doom; it is doubtful he would have been able to remain attached as the violent shaking and g-forces took hold. Although he made it as high as the launch tower, it is likely the bat dropped off and died in the searing 1400C exhaust of the throttling boosters.

YouTube Bans Terrorist Training Videos
If YouTube/Google really wanted to help stop terrorism, then they would work with Government officials to collect information on the whereabouts and identity of those posting 'terrorist' videos.
Then the problem quickly becomes, what is a terrorist video? Is my video about a remote control car shooting fireworks ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YfDiHIeLGk ) a terrorist video, and are the CIA/FBI going to pay me a visit?
I certainly hope not. But, I wouldn't be surprised.
