My old pal Alan Corey’s book is finally out in early January. It’s ambiguously, tersely titled A Million Bucks by 30: How to Overcome a Crap Job, Stingy Parents, and a Useless Degree to Become a Millionaire Before (or After) Turning Thirty. So very Alan. Seriously though, if there’s anyone qualified to write this book, [...]
What a bizarre day. Among other things… Veronica’s show finally launched! I love it. The coming episodes are pure gold. I got to interview #3 on my “most wanted” list — look for that on Engadget soon. Google announces its long-awaited mobile platform. For the second time this year I’m genuinely stoked about the mobile [...]
Chris Anderson rants about the woeful life of being the editor of a large publication who receives an endless torrent of spammy-smelling PR email from “lazy flacks” — all stuff about which I’ve zero knowledge. (Actually, I’m sure that’s probably where the comparisons end between our jobs — but who knows.) He then leapfrogs the [...]
Hard to believe, but we’ve been in Japan almost two weeks now. (See how well we’ve asimilated?) Things have been pretty busy since we’ve been gone, but with Veronica officially headed home to the States, now sounds like a good time for a quick recap on the trip thus far. See if you notice any [...]
Title kind of says it all — check out the BookSwim site here. Anyone try it out yet? I’m very curious to know how well it works. Perhaps the best part of this is the fact that not three days ago Peter and I were having a discussion about how we should start a Netflix [...]
Late last year I bought a Roomba Discovery — Veronica’s and my first domestic robot that turned out to be a fun, if guilty novelty which proceeded to have battery issues, difficulty in finding and interfacing with its dock, and problems with its Scheduler remote. Its vacuuming capabilities are passable, but not enviable. In short, [...]
Some additional triflings, ranging from amusing to awesome (in order): I’m jealous: Brian met Stan Lee. And I didn’t. Paris Hilton loses her $60m inheritance. Perhaps there is a god after all. Update: TMZ reports it’s all a dirty fabrication. This will be the last time PH is ever mentioned on this blog. In related [...]
Things getting me stoked (or at least piquing my interest) this week, in no particular order: The earth-shattering revelation that Aquafina (and Dasani) are both tap water. And yet they both still taste like ass. Did someone say something about a Lost video game? Oh, there’s footage, too. Still, given the nature of the show, [...]
As a card-carrying MST3k fan (no, really, I’m fan club member 72757 — ah, to be young again), I’m obligated to blog about the latest MST incarnation, Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy’s new series The Film Crew, as well as Mike Nelson’s MP3 overdub series RiffTrax. Only serious geeks with serious levels of [...]
Is it any wonder why I love her so? Best bloopers reel ever.
