The vuvuzela: some love it, many loathe it. The buzzing "instrument" has been a source of controversy at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa — so much so that there are even tutorials for ridding your football recordings of the sound (and some broadcasters might do the job for you). But if you can't get enough of the vuvuzela, then why not use Vuvuzela-time.co.uk/ to, um, "enhance" your Web browsing experience. For example, here's GoodGearGuide.com.au after it's been vuvuzelaised. Marvellous! You could always listen to the Vuvuzela Internet radio station or use the instant vuvuzela button. We just don't understand why some people are mounting online campaigns to ban them.
Need even more vuvuzela? Then why not check out the vuvuzela Twitter accounts. Sample tweet: "LESBLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRR
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR". There are quite a few of them out there. Great stuff! Want your own noise maker? eBay Australia is chock full of them! Or you could just grab a vuvuzela app for your smartphone. Wow! In fact it looks like smartphone vuvuzela apps are quite popular. It should be no surprise to anyone that Google is registering a sharp spike in vuvuzela-related Web searches.
