Let Mikey Try It First

Maybe Popeye can't, but I can wait a few more weeks before busting opening a package of spinach. Allegedly, it is "safe" now, even though they don't know how or why all the spinach in the U.S. got infected. Read on...

Take My Battery, PLEASE!

Wondering whether you have a laptop that is going to crash and burn? Confused by all the reports? Thinking it may be time to pull the battery and use it for this New Years fireworks instead? Well, I have done the research for you and you can now check your little darling and see if it should be using your battery to start your next barbeque.

HEROES

With much anticipation, I tuned in to watch HEROES. I am not sure what exactly I was expecting, but the premier episode left me scratching my head. There is a porn queen who can rip mob collectors to shreds, a goofy Japanese guy that teleports, and a drug user who paints the future...just to name a few of the characters. Not sure if I liked it or not. What say you all?

Digital Camera


I was talking to my buddy Gloria the other day about cameras and since it has been a year or so since I bought my digital camera, I wasn't really sure what mega pixels the new cameras were shooting at and/or what the prices were. (Guess the geek in-the-know thing doesn't flow over to some gadgets) Just so you all know, and no it's not the slickest looking camera or anything, here are some up-to-date specs on a Kodak camera. (Preorder only, not yet out on the market) Read on...

Ryder Cup 2006

I don't have to tell you, you already know. Unless there is some big rally by the boys on Sunday, looks like we let Europe keep the Ryder Cup. The shot of the day was their Hole-In-One.

Star Trek 40th Anniversary Auction

Next month, Christie's auction house will be the final frontier for a large selection of items from the Star Trek TV shows and movies.
Here is a plethora of links:
What are they auctioning, you ask?
Oh yes, you can bid on the items by registering.
Just a cool way to enter the site.
How about a nice little fake tricorder for hundreds and hundreds of dollars?
Not expensive enough for you? We got you a $30,000

Another New Treo


Not yet available here in the United States, PALM is keeping busy with yet another new Treo. Oddily familiar eh? Looks like a Blackberry to me...

As soon as it comes with a built in Wifi card, I am upgrading my Treo 700w. (Anyone want to buy a slightly used, totally tweaked out Treo?)

Future of Computing

Computers of the future could be controlled by eye movements, rather than a mouse or keyboard. It could happen...!

Star Trek Returns


Star Trek returns to broadcast television this week with an extensive digital face lift. I enjoy a good rerun from time to time, don't you?

Schwarzenegger says hang up now!

California today became the fourth state to ban motorists from holding cell phones while driving...but the fine is only $20?!

Nothing New

Well, it's Friday. And I don't have a thing to report on today. If you have a few minutes, you can always enjoy Nick Burns. (Thanks go to Jason for this link today)

Sail Ho Course to Reopen

Yes, it's a little baby course, but I had played it numerous times. It has been closed for almost 2 years and it is good to hear that they are going to reopen it at the end of the month. Read on....

World's Most Powerful SuperComputer

And you ask, who should use the World's Most Powerful SuperComputer and all that petaflop speed? Scientists to unlock defective DNA code or Doctors to cure cancer? Oh, contrer mon ami... It makes way more sense to have say, a US government laboratory, maybe something like a laboratory that is owned by the US Department of Energy (DOE). Eventually the machine could be used for a program that ensures the US nuclear weapons stockpile remains safe and reliable. Because that is WAY more important that we keep our weapons stockpiled, don't you think? (NOT)

Windows Marketplace

I have found myself at this site more than twice this month. I snagged some card games (free) and the Led Zepplin computer theme for my test laptop. Even though I won't use the actual theme, I will keep the sound files that came with it!
No doubt I will be back there looking for something else to play with...
