Amir Bahador Kharazmi from Blog to an international Album

Remember this guy I wrote about back then? About his song Khooneye Madarbozorge.

Back then he only published his songs online, now he got rid of all that, and now he started his album and it's now it's published through out the world. His songs are in Techno and melodic based music. I love the Way bahador did his music! I'm one of his big fans, me and my brother are in contact with him online.

Pretec’s 12GB CompactFlash card costs more than a new Honda Civic

engadget:We’d mentioned this once before, but Digital Photography Review is saying that Pretec’s 12GB CompactFlash is supposed to retail for nearly $15,000 when it comes out later this year rather than the $9,999 we had heard it was going to cost. At least in Japan it’s supposed to retail for that much. So basically you can choose between buying a little piece of plastic with some memory on it that you’re probably going to lose anyway, or a brand new 2004 Honda Civic, which actually costs a little less.
