It may not seem like big news to anyone who's still using Internet Explorer to access their dialup Hotmail account (hi, Grandma!), but the developers at Mozilla have finally announced the release date of their long-hyped new browser, Firefox 3. As with All Things Tech, they promise the new application will completely alter the way you use your computer. In fact, they're so stoked on F3 that they think they can set a Guinness World Record this Tuesday, June 17, when the open-source program is released to the world — and by "world" they mean such global wifi hotspots as Mongolia, Bhutan, and the trendy tourist destination of Norway's Arctic "dependencies," Svalbard & Jan Mayen. You can join the 1.25 million geeks (OK, fine: "dedicated users") who've already promised to download the free browser on Tuesday by clicking here. — J. Graham

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
