Yummy Yummy

OK OK, I'm sold before I've even seen the product. Intel's new Core 2 Duo chips came out today and I can't wait to get my hands on one. For the past year, I've been keeping up with how great these new chips are..... and today's the day they finally came out.

Could be a very good Black Friday this year (Wink Wink).

Let Freedom Ring

So much controversy over the new design for Freedom Tower in New York City (the building that replaces the twin towers). On one side is a creative designer who was brought in to design a masterpiece. On the other side is a builder and develper who look at the new building in terms of being practical & secure. I'm all for the builder.... 1st off, I think the designer is crazy. He keeps talking about making the building evoke an image of the Statue of Liberty by making the metal twist and having it's spire shoot into the sky on one side. To me, his design doesn't remotely evoke the Statue of Liberty..... just a freakin' lopsided building. The Statues sits out in the harbor.... it's green.... it's a statue. Buildings, on the other hand, are buildings..... they can be charming or interesting in their own right, but NO skyscraper in the work is ever going to look like a person.... exspecially not buy sticking a lopsided tower on the side (I can't believe this guy gets paid to be an idiot). Beauty, simplicity, and function are all relivant characteristics of building design. This particular project has some symbolism for our nation as well, but lets not get carried away. I think the new freedom tower design is great. Let's build the thing and shut up about a stupid tribute to the Statue of Liberty.... after all, how many Lady Liberties does NYC need?

I'm probably keep 2 or 3 so GO AHEAD AND VOTE

Brilliant Idea

Too bad barcodes are going to be replaced by RFID tags soon.

The Dark Ages

Welcome to the dark ages.

It's been a tough week. For the past 10 days I've not had any internet or cable at my condo. My only fix was to use my laptop in my old apartment for a few minutes each day. So many times I've wanted to look up a product on the internet, or find a google map of an address. On the up side..... I have read 3 books.

Saints be praised, today I finally got connected again! Ahhhhhhhh, feels GREAT!!!


What is it? You'll never guess so let me tell you. It's a floating bed. That's right, for 1.5 million dollars this bed floats on magnets. I can't imagine it would be a very good sleeping device, but it's probably just a matter of time before we see one on MTV Cribs.

Now, what's really exciting about this is that it looks like a hoverboard. Yup, that's right.... the hoverboard from "Back to the Future". Since that movie came out kids have been drooling to get their hands on one... only to be told that the technology doesn't exist. Well excuse me, but if we can sleep a couple people on a floating bed, what's to stop the hoverboard from being on storeshelves next Christmas?
