CDROM drive as a Music Player

Driveimage Great use for that old drive! MuCoP allows you to play your favourite music CDs on an “old” PC CDROM drive, instead of throwing it away. It consists of the bare essentials: a PIC microcontroller (16F877), 6 push-buttons, stereo audio amplifier (TDA2822M) and a few discrete components, not forgetting the IDE CDROM drive. Link.

  1. Not quite the results you expect. Since GasBuddy does not require users to input a gas station address that Google Maps can decode, most of the stations don’t make it to the map.

  2. Another great mashup: MapCharity.org

    With the recent chariy fraud, MapCharity.org is helping people see what charities do with their funds by plotting the locations of the aid they give on a Google Map. Lines extend from the charity’s headquarters to each location.

    The home page represents the Citigroup Foundation. Charity’s are allowed to request their own free map sites.

  3. I wouldn’t trust Gas Buddy since most of the prices are invented by other members in order to get points.

    When I was using Gas Buddy I found that more often then not the prices were bogus. If they want something accurate, they should use AAA.
