While researching iPod minis I found a nice surprise on Apple’s site.
A toolkit with all of the necessary software and raw material to create a new remix of Jay-Z’s Black Album
Just in case anyone has seen this one going around yet, it is the most clever and well-done spoof I’ve seen in a long time. I have been getting dozens of these and they are humorous because I run my own email systems, so the email just doesn’t make any sense.
Downhill Battle is a great website with tons of interesting information, and they are also the people behind Grey Tuesday. I don’t agree with everything they’re saying, but it’s all educational. Did you know label and Apple take 89 cents of every song sold on iTunes? Oh, and shhhh.
QRIO, our new robot overlords friends. Hat tip: Robert. Some videos in Windows Media format: Video 1 Video 2 Video 3 Video 4 Video 5 Video 6 (You’ve got to watch this one.) I’m really at a loss for words. QRIO knows your face. It’s equipped with a camera and the ability to analyze the […]
Or not. Lars Holst, who has a beautiful WordPress-powered blog, has been doing a bit he calls Well-Designed Weblogs. I have been pretty disappointed with the second round (and to some extent the first round) of “Well-Designed Weblogs.” It is subjective, but quite frankly there are some sites I don’t see anything in. To me […]

For better or worse, there have been a number of stylesheet updates around here, so you may notice things looking slightly different. First off are the shadows behind the main content box, for whose sake non-semantic elements were added to this page for the first time ever. How quick we are to sell out! Speaking […]
A brief review of a new coffee shop called “The Coffee Guy” where my friend Elissa works. Includes pictures. Whatever you do, do not visit or patronize The Coffee Guy.
The disruption in Blogrolling’s service illustrates a need for more decentralization in the blog world.
An update to my writing resolution.
It was a really, really great movie. Go see it. No spoilers here. 🙂 We were the very first people in the movie theatre, which was nice because we got the best seats. One of the times I saw Reloaded I had second row seats way too close to the screen and it was pretty […]
It is always sad to see someone lose their job due to blogging. Shurely this matter could have been resolved amicable manner.
While the post has fallen down on the page, the comments on my previous post “Apple In My Eye” are generally excellent all around and deserve some attention. As an update to some of the problems, Apple has released a new version of iTunes for Windows which fixes the random crashing problem and has allowed […]
I’m going to participating in Fray Day 7 here in Houston tonight at 8 PM. I’m a “featured speaker” tonight and I’m going to be telling a story I call “The Little Red Button That Changed My Life.” Several friends have already expressed an interest in coming and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. It […]
A little of what’s going on in the corner of the world wide web I frequent: It’s too rare someone bares their soul in grieving to the world. Kevin does it too in a toast for his brother’s wedding. Cody’s Bad Art Night is this evening. I’m going to be there, will you? Zeldman: web […]
Jeffrey is in good company: In the early stages of moving I could only take a handful of books so I chose the ones that I knew I would need for my classes, the ones that I referred to often, and the ones that mean the most to me. The books, from left to right: […]
I finally got the new business cards I’ve been waiting on.
While the rest of Ontario was running around in the dark Joe Clark dialed into Compuserve and blogged. His observations cracked me up.
I love when it rains because I feel like it soothes my soul. Last night in the space between conciousness and sleep I wrote an entry. It was beautiful, exquisitely thought out and relevant, and I even imagined the markup I would use. My last thought before I drifted off was I should write something […]
