Another brick in the wall: Lego, the Danish maker of those plastic interlocking building blocks, says it will invest nearly $534 million in the construction of a 77-turbine wind farm off the coast of Germany.

The owner said the initial cost of the wind farm would be only half that amount, but he expected his big brother would come along at some point and smash his wind farm so he could use the bricks for his space station.


PAC man: At least some of the "super PACs" that are taking millions of dollars in contributions from corporations and individuals appear to be funneling much of that money to those who created them. One "super Pac" that took in $1.5 million, paid a direct mail firm $570,000. Both the PAC and the direct mail firm are owned by the same man.

I guess corporations really are "people," if they can get taken like the rest of us.


You say goodbye and I say hello: Cellphone users will now be able to buy 30-second clips of Beatles songs to use as ringtones. The Beatle's 27 No. 1 hits will be made available now for $1.29 each. More songs could be made available later.

Those bent on annoying co-workers, however, will have to wait a while to download ringtones from Yoko Ono's songs from John Lennon's solo albums.
