Axe Fight!

Comcast to Offer a Bandwidth Meter, Insane Female Bodybuilders, Google Now Hawking Fully Unlocked G1's to Developers, Video - Meteor Fireball over Canada, Mother's Fury over Nintendo DS Scrabble - Wants Game Banned.

The next live episode of Diggnation is less than a month away. It'll be our 2nd ever live show from LA and will take place in conjunction with the Digg LA meetup on Wednesday January 14th at a place called The Knitting Factory. As always, it is completely free. We'll have more details soon - but the show will probably end up starting around 730pm. The Knitting Factory doesn't hold too much more than about 500 people, so be sure to show up early if you want to make certain to get in.

We're switching the release day for Diggnation next year. Right now, the show comes out every Friday at 3pm Eastern. Starting on the 21st of January, Diggnation will be released every Wednesday at 3pm Eastern.

Comcast just announced that they will give customers the ability to monitor their bandwidth for free.

Sponsors

Thanks to the new PlayStation Portable for sponsoring Diggnation. The new PSP-3000 has an ultra crisp super-wide display that plays the best games, biggest movies, your music, and more.
The PSP can get you where you want to go. No matter where you are, it makes that place better and more interesting.
It's available as part of the Ratchet and Clank Entertainment Pack that comes with:

  • Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters UMD game
  • National Treasure 2 UMD movie

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. If you are planning to drink alcohol with friends, designate a sober driver before going out and give that person your keys.

Wear your seat belt while in a car or use a helmet and protective gear when on a motorcycle as these are your best defenses against an impaired driver.

Axe
The Axe Arsenal is a set of applications designed by Axe to help guys flirt, meet and keep girls. Currently, the Axe Arsenal is in beta and holds three applications. Hookupedia, Connect-A-Friend and Date Creator. Were asking Diggnation viewers to test it out and give us feedback.

Hookupedia is an encyclopedia of flirting, dating and relationships that also allows users to submit their own articles.

Connect-A-Friend empowers guys by helping them hook up their Facebook or MySpace friends.

Date Creator suggests different dates and offers tips on how to make a date memorable. Powered by Yelp.

Adagio
We've teamed up again with our friends at Adagio Teas to create some new custom Diggnation tea blends. Alex and Kevin created new blends -- so did Prager and Hippie Glenn.

You can buy any of the teas individually, or, for the remainder of December you can get 20% off of a sampler set of all 4. Cool as a holiday gift idea. Check out all the new Diggnation adagio tea blends, as well as the old ones, at adagio.com/diggnation.
