TinyURL takes those long, long, long URLs and makes them – well – tiny.

For example, I could say:

Hey, check out Douglas Coupland’s new book at http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?userid=2V2L2U1P97&isbn=1582343586&itm=3


I could say:

Hey, check out Douglas Coupland’s new book at http://tinyurl.com/gqam.

It’s really nice for those people who still use something like Pine to check their email. Instead of putting together long URLs by cutting and pasting pieces (the line breaks disrupt the ‘cut’ process), you just click on a tinyURL.

And to add to, things I want to buy, check out Liz Phair’s latest self-titled Liz Phair.

    I had high hopes for this album, but have you read any positive reviews?

  2. Jason says:

    I haven’t read any reviews yet – by your wording, it sounds as though you have read some negative ones?

    I’ve heard some really *bad* reviews of the Liz Phair album (one in Salon, as I recall). But I did buy the Coupland book last night. Looking forward to reading it.

    I used to love Liz Phair (circa Exile in Guyville & Whipsmart) but this last one is so Britney Spears it makes me wanna scream and kick things … Now, I’m not accusing her of selling out, just claiming that her music now sucks ass. Shame.

  5. Jason says:

    Well, Coupland’s definitely trumping Liz on this one, it sounds like. The demo tracks I listened to on Amazon didn’t strike me as overwhelming. Shame.

    I really enjoyed the Coupland book. I’ll try to blog about it later this week. Maybe tonight.
