So Long and Thanks for all the Fish (via Fihshsticks)
I can’t trust an animal that is more intelligent than the average human (same reason I distrust cats).

Then I started getting that sick feeling in my stomach — the one where you start to realize how good the Democrats are at losing elections. As much as I dislike the Clintstones, I have to admit that Hillary and Bill would not be letting themselves get bitch-slapped around by the Repubes the way Obama is.

This is an upcoming product that is trying to exist parallel to the Amazon Kindle, but without trying to make itself too big a target for Amazon to crush it. The device doesn’t have a name yet, and so far it looks promising:
- It’s as big as a sheet of paper
- Battery time measured in days, not hours
- Touch sensitive screen
- Open formats
- Very thin and light
- Sturdy screen
If they can pull it off, it will bring competition to the Kindle, even if only in mindshare, which is always a good thing for us consumers.

They probably won’t get much sympathy from their hard-pressed fans, but America’s stars of stage and screen are being forced to give up one of the traditional benefits of their celebrity status: private jets. The soaring price of aviation fuel, which is now twice the cost of a year ago, is adding tens of thousands of dollars to the cost of a typical flight, prompting members of Hollywood’s élite to think the unthinkable and ground their personal Gulfstreams.
Like we say here in Virginia: “tough shit.”
