    not found

    Not found on the web or in newspaper does not mean it does not exist.

    Murders occur daily, but only if news organizations find it newsworthy and sends a reporter to the police department, it will remain unknown to the masses.

    MacNN Give Us the Link.

    MacNN, please update this story with a link to the CBS MarketWatch story. There is a problem if no one else is able to verify you sources.

    Use the search at Duke

    Go to http://cit.duke.edu/about/ipod.do for info about their "iPod investigation." My guess is either Goggle hasn't crawled the announcement or they haven't placed it on the Web site yet. But the link above clealry shows that Duke was seriously looking into iPods and their academic usage.
