Google has a fun addition to their map software called Latitude. Basically, it figures out your location, and allows people you specify to see that location on a map.
They've put out a cute "toy" to advertise it. You can see it at http://services.google.com/latitudevideo/view.html#n0CvZxmd5m0Ehmc5z05s0CvZxmd
For once, this is an app that works on my phone (Windows Mobile) but NOT on Wendy's iPhone. At least, not yet. She's stuck with using it on her MacBook. ;)

Forget July 7th, 2007 (07/07/07), August 8th, 2008 (08/08/08) or even the upcoming September 9th, 2009 (09/09/09). Real geeks know that today, at 5:31 PM (well, 30 seconds AFTER that) central time is the REAL date pattern to watch: At that time, the time will be recorded as
Those other dates will happen again in 100 years, but 1234567890 will never happen again.

This video came in on The Onion video feed. The concept was funny enough, but I literally laughed out loud when reading through the list of "symptoms" that can be treated with "Despondex."

This is an actual promo video from Microsoft for a new product called "SongSmith." I'm in awe.
The acting is terrible. The songs are annoying. And this is supposed to make me interested in this product? (I've also heard it mentioned that the laptop the daughter is using is actually a Mac, which isn't supported by the product, but I'm not sure about that.

Tomorrow morning Wendy and I will be boarding a plane headed to Pittsburg. From there we'll begin the drive to the darkest woods of NW Pennsylvania, headed to my home town of Warren. We'll be staying with my aunt and uncle, who have only dialup internet service, so I may be somewhat out of touch for this next week.

In honor of my upcoming vacation to visit family back home, and because I haven't updated in forever, I've decided to switch the theme on the blog. I do love the beach ... ;)

Wendy and I watched the presidential debate last night. (Well, I watched it. Wendy slept through part of it because she did not sleep well the night before). It looks to me like John McCain is becoming more and more a caricature of himself that you might see on SNL or The Daily Show, rather than a real political figure. Of course, I'm clearly biased.
