Show notes - The Queue: Moon bound!
Resort wants to bring the moon to Earth, video downloads from your local library, a megapixel quick quiz, turning your 2D photos into 3D ones, and let the Great Turtle Race begin.
The latest episode of The Queue is now available for your viewing pleasure on CNET TV. Here are notes on the things I mentioned:
I first met the guys behind this at the X Prize Cup in Las Cruces, NM. I've always been fascinated with space and I thought the little 3-D model of the resort was so cool. I'm not sure how far along plans are to actually build one of these...but I can definitely see the potential appeal.

I had no idea you could download eBooks and other things like it from the library! It's all DRM'd, but still, for free, what more can you ask for! All you need is a library card.
Check for your library:
