On a lighter note, the Spore alien creature database (the new radically new game that was launched a while ago) now has more lifeforms in its database than there on the entire planet!
Will Wright, the creator, said they had hoped to reach 100K by Fall and perhaps a million by the end of the year. Instead, they hit 100K in 22 hours and a million in a week! For the record, it took God six days... ;)
The actual game is available yet, I believe. Only the creature editor can be downloaded and I think they use it to populate their universe with it, so that when the game comes and players will populate the universe, there is actually life on the planets. :) Otherwise it would be kinda lonely. Do you think Adam and Eve were the only people in paradise? If so, no wonder Eve ate the apple!
