iPad Demo Vid

For those who haven’t watched this one yet: While smart from a marketing and strategy perspective, Apple’s first-to-market launches always lead to a lot of bugs, so I await the list of flaws when people really start to buy this thing. (Yes, I’m still angry about my iPod dying exactly one month after the warranty […]

Three Favorite American-History Figures?

Just stated my list to my friend Brian: Abraham Lincoln. Probably a cliché, but that’s a good thing. Benjamin Franklin. Smart, practical, and clearly a cool dude for a party. Teddy Roosevelt. Easily the most bad-ass liberal President. Other nominees?

Tomorrow is the Massachusetts special Senate election for Ted Kennedy’s seat, the coverage of which has been drawing my attention for the past week and a half.

Ah Well

I declared it over prematurely a few weeks ago, but in the end I was right anyway.

The team felt out of Pittsburgh-style balance a […]

It’s Official: Soundgarden Reuniting! | Spin Magazine Online

Earlier, I posted a totally sweet Temple of the Dog reunion vid. But then today, I saw this: It’s Official: Soundgarden Reuniting! | Spin Magazine Online. All I can say is that I am hella amped. My 11- to 17-year-old self (after all, they did break up in ’97) is rejoicing at the news, so […]
