Having Sex With Your Hand (And Not Making A Mess)

Yeah, before we get to the subject line, let me first mention a few real stories. The most admired and trusted company in the world is? Apple Computer. Forbes, who conducted the survey says “this year generated the highest response rate in its history … For the third straight year Apple takes the No. 1 […]

Dick Cheney Is Right….

…. Yeah, for a change. Maybe for the first time. He called Barack Obama a one-term president and I think he’s going to be proven right. The Economist Magazine is calling him a failure in its latest issue though they certain feel he can change this still. If there were an election today with Obama […]

JD Salinger Buys an iPad. Not.

First, RIP to legendary author and recluse Jerome David Salinger who died today. In an AP story today humorist John Hodgman was quoted as saying, “I prefer to think JD Salinger has just decided to become extra reclusive.” Mr Salinger was most famous for introducing world to Holden Caulfield. Next up, a quick nod to […]

Blu-Ray Phasers and Classic Advertising

Today is laundry day. And it’s also a football weekend. The Cowboys lost and that is an awesome thing because I hate them but on the other hand it was to Minnesota, who I used to like. Until they got Brett “Whiny Bitch” Farve, who I can’t stand. The Jets and Colts both won and […]

Autographed Cards, Windows Woes, and more…

First, the last in my series of NHL collectible photos was posted at Flickr today. I have plenty of more stuff, but this is all you get to see. This photo shows the NHLPA Binder, NHL certificate of authenticity, and one page of nine cards. There are many pages and this is a complete set […]

This is a good thing, because if they’re all in one place, maybe somebody with a flamethrower can […]

Apple, Ghosts, MacBook vs MacBook Pro

Thanks to Suzie-Q and Randy who came back with answers on the MacBook v MacBook Pro. Amazingly none of my local geek friends answered or knew the answers. Their answers — not fact checked because I trust them — are: MacBook is less durable because it has a polycarbonate case versus the MacBook Pro which […]

Atrocity In The Name Of Food and many other ramblings including iPod and Beatles

If you are squeamish, you will wish to skip this paragraph — the links are horrifically graphic. This report is available on AP, CBS, and many other news services and it’s absolutely disgusting and appalling. NewsBlaze and CBS . The bottom line is that approximately 150,000 baby chickens are ground to death in meat grinders […]

Apple and stuff that’s way more interesting

I am an Apple fan and have been for a long, long time. So I wish to say I am quite disappointed in today’s Apple announcements. Seriously anti-climactic if you ask me. There was much anticipation, and it was followed by much boredom. Far more interesting today 9-9-09 was the Beatles release of their entire […]

So many things to report….

First, a big thank you to John and Liz for their hospitality last night. There was BBQ and music and fun all around. I’m glad I went. Tasty. A bit spicy and my acid reflux didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as I did. Oh well, sometimes you gotta’ live a little. Now on to […]
