Diggnation in Dolby Headphone

New Digg Extension for Firefox 3, Michael Phelps Swims into Gold Medal History, Hershey's Isn't Milk Chocolate, Sexiness Widens PC/Mac Price Gap, and Sex With Steel Bench.

Live SHOW!
Come to see us do a live Diggnation on Tuesday evening, the 26th of August at 6pm! We'll be a part of NVIDIA's NVISION 2008 and the show will take place at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. This is the biggest venue we have ever had for a live diggnation -- 4,000 seat capacity stadium seating. If you are anywhere near the bay area - we would LOVE to have you join us and help fill the auditorium -- its completely free and open to all ages.

We're back with our San Francisco neighbors and good friends, Dolby Labs. We've been over here a few times. If you're under a rock, you might not know already that Dolby is a global leader in technologies that are essential in the best entertainment experiences. Since it’s founding in 1965, the company has focused on improving the entertainment experience—at the movies, in the home, and on the go. Dolby helped define high-quality audio and surround sound in cinema, high definition broadcast, home audio systems, televisions, cars, DVDs, games, mobile devices, and personal computers.

The new Firefox 3 Digg Extension has been released, and Kevin runs through the video that shows you how it works. You can now see notifications as they happen and it's easier to submit stories right from your browser. Alex is blown away.

Badass Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps makes history with 10 gold medals, surpassing Mark Spitz and Carl Lewis. Phelps shows us that you can drink and still be healthy. Good news aside, Kevin is into older women -- he shares his opinion on hooking up with 41 year old swimmer, Dara Torres, and is not a fan of little girl gymnastics.

The guys are bummed (and scared) that Hershey's is no longer legally considered milk chocolate due to cutting corners in cost. They examine the ingredients of the new candy and wonder... what ever happened to the chocolately good times at Hershey, Pennsylvania?

Sexiness could be the factor between the widening price difference between Macs and PCs. Macs are getting more expensive, which Kevin can defend, while Alex doesn't exactly know where he got his copy of Microsoft Office.

A lesson for all men: There are a lot of places to put your penis, but this doesn't mean you should actually try it. Don't have sex with a steel bench - you could lose your... junk, and it will be embarrassing. What is also embarrassing? Wanting to be with a cartoon character, like GI Joe's Lady J.

The guys from Dolby were kind enough to make a reggae remix of the Alex's Netflix sponsor song. Thanks for the submission, Brandon! Stephen also made an equally awesome remix of the song. Check back soon for download links to these mp3 files.

NHTSA
In 2006, 13,470 people were killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes. These fatalities accounted for 32 percent of the total motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States. 59 percent of those killed in single-vehicle crashes on weekend nights had BACs of .08 or higher. If you are planning to drink alcohol with friends, designate a sober driver before going out and give that person your keys.
