I was just granted a few more GMail invitations. Holla if you want one. Update: They’re all gone now.

Gizmodo has the World’s First Treo 650 Pictures
The Treo 650 looks great and it will have BlueTooth and a removable battery. The addition of BlueTooth is big, but they should add WiFi to it as well. I think I’ll wait for the 700 (at least) to upgrade though.
Let’s See if These Pics Make the Most-Emailed List :-)
Wide World of Sports
Those nails can’t be aerodynamic It’s ain’t easy, but Michael Phelps has got to do it. For some reason this picture reminded me of this ESPN article: ‘Sex, Olympics go hand in hand.’ Funny how nobody wants to talk about this, but everybody’s thinking it… A white guy wins a sprint?!?! It’s like we’re in… Continue reading Wide World of Sports
Google’s Engineers Must Be Star Trek Fans
Not that I’m trying to become the search engine blog, but I found this post about Google using alternating algorithms interesting: Musical Algorithms What if there were no Google algorithm to game? Or more precisely, what if there were several different algorithms all being used at the same time – so that no specific tactics… Continue reading Google’s Engineers Must Be Star Trek Fans

Slated to hit shelves in November, the tome’s title will be “Will They Ever Trust Us Again?” The letters were received… Continue reading Michael Moore to Publish Soldiers’ Letters
Note to the Press: It’s ‘Weblog’, One Damn Word!
[rant]This has been bugging the sh!t out of me for weeks now, ever since all the media coverage over the convention bloggers. Why is it so difficult for the mainstream media to understand that ‘weblog’ is one word? It’s not “web log” or even worse “web blog” as I just saw in a NY Times… Continue reading Note to the Press: It’s ‘Weblog’, One Damn Word!
They’re Playing Bas-ket-ball…
If you’re a hip-hop and basketball fan go read this article about some of the ties between the two. It’s a good exploration of how the two have influenced each other, although I think the author gives Michael Jordan a little too much credit on the fashion tip. There’s definitely a chicken & egg thing… Continue reading They’re Playing Bas-ket-ball…
So That’s what StrangleBerry Does
PVRBlog reveals some details about StrangleBerry, the company that TiVo bought a while back. It looks like they have some powerful technology that may very well keep TiVo out of its death bed. (I’m sure the DirecTiVo’s won’t get this new functionality. -sigh-) There’s even more about this story in this Business 2.0 article (subscription… Continue reading So That’s what StrangleBerry Does
