So Giuliani has dropped out, and endorsed McCain. And now Arnold is about to do the same. That should do it for McCain, I think; Romney can hang in there, but he's ultimately toast. Probably Giuliani will be McCain's VP. I would say that ticket could beat Hillary and just about anyone, but they'll have a tough time against Obama; it will be interested to see how it plays out. With both of their respective nominations seemingly wrapped up, the candidates will move away from their party's fringes toward the middle. Four years ago I thought maybe it would be Arnold against Obama :) Too bad it isn't...
Cycling News conducted an interview with Jonathan Vaughters, the leader of the Slipstream cycling team. They'll be the team I'm rooting for in '08, (along with Rabobank, of course). Astana, not so much, although they do have Levi Leipheimer.
BusinessWeek reports on eBay's profitable Pal. "The business purchased by eBay in 2002 handled almost $50 billion in payments during the year, up more than 30% from the prior year. Along the way, PayPal generated $1.9 billion in processing fees for eBay, giving company executives plenty to crow about on their conference call with analysts." $50B in payments per year. Wow. That's about all I can say.
Jason Kottke liveblogs the Mythbusters episode about the plane on the conveyor belt. Warning, BIG spoiler if you click the link. I must confess that I had this right all along. For the benefit of those who haven't yet watched the episode, I'll refrain from explaining why I knew. Until tomorrow. [ John Gruber guessed wrong :) ]
Dell to close its U.S. stores. My reaction is the same as when I heard Palm was closing its stores. What stores?
