Dr. Horrible soundtrack! Dr. Horrible soundtrack! Dr. Horrible soundtrack!
Ahem. The official soundtrack to “Dr. Horrible” – as opposed to all the uinofficial ones all of us made within seconds of the videos hitting the Web – is now available at iTunes. And the lyrics and liner notes have been posted at the DrHorrible.com site. Woot!
In other funky download news, Google is preparing to launch their new open-source web browser today, called Chrome. Supposed to be a secret but their explanatory comic (by Scott McCloud) got leaked yesterday.

And some sad download news – Stephanie Meyer has announced she will not be publishing the last book in her enormously popular “Twilight Saga” series because an unfinished partial draft was leaked online. “I think it is important for everybody to understand that what happened was a huge violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being.” She posted a link to the draft at her site so her fans wouldn’t have to break the law to get what’s already out there. This could be what finally tips the scales on the piracy fight: millions of outraged adolescent girls beating up the entire Internet.
