Totally free iPhone ringtones at audiko.net

The site is a little ugly, but it's otherwise pretty well executed. There are two ways to get a ringtone:
 
1. Create your own ringtone from an mp3

  • Select an mp3 from your computer and it uploads to their servers 
  • They present a really great UI showing the entire song with the waveform. You can select any part of the song you want by dragging the selection window, change the length of that selection, and add fades. Just like in iTunes and Garage Band. 
  • Click "Create" and it downloads an iphone ready ringtone instantly, already tagged with all the right id3 info (as found in your original mp3)


2. Or just do a search

They have a huge library of ringtones all ready to go. It's a really easy way to get a bunch of ringtones in just seconds. Not sure how this is legal though :)

Check it out at http://audiko.net.


Largest US camera store seeks bankruptcy protection

Court papers suggest that Ritz Cameras owes over $40 million to its two largest creditors: Nikon's US subsidiary Nikon Inc. and Canon USA, with a further $8.4 million owed to Fujifilm USA, a subsidiary of which owns around a third of the company. To put the $26.6 million owed to Nikon Inc. into perspective, it would represent somewhere in the region of 20% of Nikon Inc's expected annual operating income.

Ritz camera/Wolf camera has always been at the bottom of the barrel when it comes time to purchase camera equipment. Bad service, high prices, weak warranties... They are the Circuit City of camera gear. The loss of jobs is sad, but they need to make way for the modern era of retail.

But it really sucks when they take down other companies with them.
