“This must be what it felt like to be caressed by Aphrodite. God must now
include the Fusion in your orientation kit when you ascend to heaven. After
shaving this morning, I grabbed 3 random downtown Supermodels and kissed them.
All three are now under my desk taking turns gently and lovingly servicing me.
The five-blade Fusion—well worth the $109.99 price tag.”

After posting this entry I tried logging into the service and got this message:
Google Page Creator has experienced extremely strong demand, and, as a result,
we have temporarily limited the number of new signups as we increase capacity.
We will notify you as soon as we are ready to add new accounts. Thank you for
What a terrific idea - I haven't tried it yet and apparently there's a bit of a "capacity problem" right now, but Google has released a beta of a web-based web page creator.
Make it easier for lay people to create web pages - its about time.

I'm not sold on watching a movie on an iPod, though. I can't understand why Apple is trying to get more and more people to watch video on a teensy weensy screen. What up with dat?
Anyhow, this site as a good read about why Apple might buy Blockbuster to help "build a video distribution empire to match its existing music distribution empire"

Well, I use Google Earth a lot and have always wondered what it takes to create a Google Maps URL out of what I'm seeing on Google Earth's screen.
The dude at GOUILLOU.COM below has it all figured out!

Yikes, this one kind of blew up in Google's face. Not only was the feature not exciting to me, but the EFF is advising against installing this version!
Speaking of new releases, there's apparently ANOTHER new version of Google Desktop (v3), but for the first time I'm not really compelled.

The lenses come in amber for sports like baseball and tennis where the wearer
must separate fast moving objects from the background, and grey-green for sports
like golf, where the background environment is what’s visually important. Both
colors filter out a significant amount of overall light, but they also sharpen
and improve contrast, so they have a brightening effect, says Alan Reichow, who
invented the lenses and is a sports vision consultant for Nike.
The amber lenses also turn the wearer's eye's an unsettling shade of red. But when Nike
asked players if they'd like to create a version that created less of an evil
eye, the answer was an overwhelming "no."

What studies to date show is a compound that attacks HIV at its molecular

Microsoft describes OneCare Live as a PC health service that runs continually in the background on a PC, providing round-the-clock protection and maintenance capabilities. The product includes a virus scanner and a two-way firewall, performs various system tune-ups, and has a data backup feature. Later this year, Microsoft will also integrate OneCare Live with Windows Defender, the company's antispyware solution.
John Dvorak has this great quote about OneCare:
Does Microsoft think it is going to get away with charging real money for any sort of add-on, service, or new product that protects clients against flaws in its own operating system? Does the existence of this not constitute an incredible conflict of interest? Why improve the base code when you can sell “protection”? Is Frank Nitti the new CEO?

"O.K., I'm not saying violence is funny and I'm not saying that Star Jones is rather difficult to like, but even her producer on 'The View' admits that he can't get enough of seeing her hit in the puss with a football, Marcia Brady-style. Enjoy, people!"See it here
