Just read this little bit of news on Wired – Subway is phasing out their beloved Sub Club rewards program due to rampant fraud. I’ve got two full cards in my wallet right now, so this sucks.

Here’s a little tidbit: An Italian computer geek found the remains of an ancient Roman villa using the excellent Google Earth satellite images available on Google Maps.

Luca Mori describes his discovery on his blog, Quelli Della Bassi – which is currently slashdotted.
