See, I have hire ambitions

Jobs: If you follow presidential campaigns, they're usually the most-discussed issue by candidates on the stump. Andrzej Sieradzki can relate to that; he wants a good job, too. But rather than wait for politicians to act, the resident of Bielsko Biala, Poland, has paid for a billboard in a busy Warsaw commercial district. Along with his name and telephone number, it reads, "Job Wanted in Banking and Finance." Has it worked? Sort of. So far, he has at least five offers ... all from advertising agencies interested in his creative skills.

What's that up in the sky?

Maybe Sieradzki should get in touch with Alexander Lavrynov in Moscow. No, Lavrynov doesn't own a bank and he isn't in a position to offer any jobs. But he has patented a process to give ads the widest possible exposure. They'd be projected from space by a system of linked satellites, in images large enough to be seen on Earth at night.

College women closely mirror tech-oriented men

Young women are generally viewed as slower to embrace technology than young men. But results of a new survey show that college-age females have virtually closed the gender gap within the most tech-oriented segment of the US population. In fact, women students are more likely to own cellphones, calculators, and answering machines than male students, according to Harris Interactive, a market research firm that polled more than 4,600 collegians last fall for its annual Youth Explorer study. The popularity of various technologies among women students, and the percentage who answered "yes" to each:

Own a computer 91%
Own a calculator 90%
Own a cellphone 82%
Own a printer 78%
Own an answering machine 50%
Use online instant messaging daily 42%
Own a digital camera 32%
Own a portable video game system 22%
Download music daily 5%
