I finally got around to taking MSNBC’s Digital IQ Quiz that I found over at my brother’s blog. I’m glad that I scored high on this even though I gave up my career as an IT consultant a few years ago. (note to self: Must… get… more… gadgets…) And he’ll be glad to see that… Continue reading My Digital IQ

Great Deal on a Treo 600 at Amazon
If you’re interested in getting a (Sprint) Treo 600, Amazon is selling them for $250 after rebates. It looks like that special ends today December 1st, so you’d better hop to it.
Are You Part of the Technology Elite?
A study released Sunday found that 31% of Americans are ‘highly tech-savvy’ people for whom the Internet, cell phones and handheld organizers are more indispensable than TVs and old-fashioned wired phones. That’s a nice change from the perception that most Americans can’t even program a simple VCR. It’s always bugged me that Japan gets all… Continue reading Are You Part of the Technology Elite?

My 2 Cents on Eminem as a Racist
I thought I’d chime in on the Eminem controversy. Madison at Diesel Nation has done a great job of rounding up some pertinent information about this situation. And I generally agree with his opinions of Eminem and Benzino. My take is that I doubt that Eminem is a racist right now. I can accept Eminem’s… Continue reading My 2 Cents on Eminem as a Racist
Sup with Your Boy Michael Jackson?
I was just looking at some pictures of Michael Jackson from his arrest episode today. Some observations: If you had just been arrested, falsely or not, would you be blowing kisses and throwing peace signs? I think not. Definition of a mug shot. WTF is up with his finger tips? Are they reverting to his… Continue reading Sup with Your Boy Michael Jackson?

Ten Commandments Judge Stripped of Office
I just got this news flash from Yahoo!: Alabama chief justice who refused to move a Ten Commandments monument is stripped of office. I’m so glad to see this happen. This whole ‘Ten Commandments monument in the courthouse thing’ is ridiculous. Some fools here in Georgia are taking up the same battle. May they also… Continue reading Ten Commandments Judge Stripped of Office
Star Wars: Clone Wars
All you Star Wars fans take note: The Cartoon Network is airing an animated series, Star Wars: Clone Wars, which bridges the gap between Episodes II and III. And the best part, IMO, is that Genndy Tartakovsy, the creator of Samurai Jack (my favorite cartoon), is in charge of this series. The first of 20… Continue reading Star Wars: Clone Wars
You Want Fries with that Download?
Looks like there’s another battle going on over music downloading. Both Pepsi and McDonald’s are offering free music downloads to their customers: Less than a month after Pepsi announced a blockbuster deal to give away 100 million downloads from Apple’s iTunes music service to its customers, McDonald’s is close to a announcing a much bigger… Continue reading You Want Fries with that Download?
