Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release. Perhaps the greatest boon of them all is that the Zune team will be including us Zune 30 owners… Continue reading Zune 3.0 Coming
Lennart Green Magic Amazes TEDrs
Lennart Green, the foremost close-up card magician of the world, dazzled the audience of TED 2005. I caught the video today on my Zune and was thrilled. His show is very entertaining, quick witted, and his foreignness is close to my heart (Green is from Gothenburg, Sweden). The TED video is around 30 minutes of… Continue reading Lennart Green Magic Amazes TEDrs
Esquire, Magazine of the Future!
Dippin’ Dots are so 2000…E Ink is the future. Esquire magazine is making a bold move to use E Ink on the cover of their October magazine. What’s more, they snagged the rights to the deal from E Ink Corporation for a year. That gives them megacreds towards the potential future of magazine design. Remember… Continue reading Esquire, Magazine of the Future!
It’s Like Watching NASCAR on Acid
We went out on Mother’s Day with some friends to see what we all knew would be a bad movie, Speed Racer. Between the 9 or so adults, there were also 3 children around Balthazar’s age. If nothing else, we thought they would thoroughly enjoy the over-the-top cheese and hyper-saturated pop-film. We might have all… Continue reading It’s Like Watching NASCAR on Acid
You may recall that I had written up the Zune Wish List a couple of months after I received mine in December of 2006. I took the time to assess my needs and what the Zune hardware and software could do to meet those needs. It has now been nearly a year since that list… Continue reading Zune 2.x
The Lone Ranger
We have now officially fallen to a distant 2nd for Balthazar’s adoration. My mother gave him the gift of a lifetime – somewhat inadvertently – yesterday. She had been at a dog party where the requirement was to dress up your animals for Halloween. Among hers, she had some cowboy and villain paraphernalia that fell… Continue reading The Lone Ranger
Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique
It was about a year ago that I wrote about Gainesville’s decision to close its doors to the occult. If you’re on the business end of the occult, maybe now is a good opportunity to try out your entrepreneurial venture again! Gainesville is now the happy home of one Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique. This… Continue reading Silver Stars: A Sensual Boutique
Impoverished Nations Get Zune
Woot has now offered the Zune through its one day, one item online shopping innovation for a third time at unprecedented prices. Each time, the unit has dropped in price considerably. Today, I see that the device is available for a mere $104.99 including shipping. There is absolutely no reason why those of you without… Continue reading Impoverished Nations Get Zune
Costume Parade on Peachtree St.
Wake-up, coffee, parade, lunch. The morning just flew by, but being a drummer in the parade was a blast! We all took a part in it; Fox dancing, Jeff as PeeWee Herman, and Amanda as Ms. Yvonne. I was able to work with the crowd more this year and give out some nods and smiles… Continue reading Costume Parade on Peachtree St.
Angry Driver Charades
A hilarious glimpse into the driver charades game. If you find yourself a victim…or even a promoter of road-rage, you can learn something useful from this…
