The apps that rate higher: MySpace Mobile (#5) slightly beats it out in popularity so far, but it only gets 3.5 stars. WikiMobile Encyclopedia (#4) is pretty cool. CompareEverywhere (#3) and ShopSavvy (#2) are pretty similar, and I'm a little surprised that The Weather Channel is #1. Who knew that would be the #1 thing people want to do on their phones.
Ringdroid finally appeared on the Android Market sometime today, so if you have a G1, please go check it out right now! It's open-source, of course - everything's on Google Code. That also means that if you don't have a G1 you can download the Android emulator and try it out on your computer - click here for emulator instructions.

Now that we'll have a bigger living room (and especially one that doesn't have to double as an office, dining room, etc.) we're starting to look for a real living room furniture set (sofa, loveseat, and coffee table), but I don't really know where we should be looking. We're definitely looking for new, modern furniture, not antiques.
We tried IKEA, Macy's and JC Penney Home Store, but we found their selections to be a bit limiting. Why no leather in any color other than brown or black? Why almost no floral patterns? Why is everything so deep, like the whole world is made of tall people?
Where else should we be shopping?
Quick stats: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1350 square feet. Brand-new complex (2006 - 2007) with ~160 units and retail space. Underground parking, washer/dryer hookup, hardwood floors (carpet in bedrooms), walk-in closets.
Location: We're right next to the Lincoln Heights / Cypress Park station on the Gold Line (light rail), at the intersection of the 5 and 110 freeways, two miles north of downtown L.A. I'll be taking advantage of a vanpool to commute to Santa Monica during off-peak hours - during rush hour it's one of the worst commutes in L.A. Luckily for nearly everwhere else we'd want to go it's amazingly centrally located. [Google Maps]

Haven't heard from minorninth in a while?
Today's the day (Thursday, March 22nd). If you've got $0.99 to spare and already have an account on iTunes, here's the direct link.
The CD-ROM comes with a custom version of Audacity for Windows and Mac OS X (universal binary). For Linux users, you'll need to get Audacity separately, but the tracks will work fine, they're encoded as high-quality Ogg Vorbis files!
