Hi y'all! A little Sunday morning blogging, still recovering from my snow day yesterday (!), and anticipating a nice sail with Meg in the C-15 a little later, competing in the Westlake Cup. I am a busy boy. And tomorrow down to Vista for a few days of work work work, but first,
Congrats to the Lakers, who dominated / blew out / overmatched [and generally made look silly] the Orlando Magic Thursday night. It was 100-75, and it wasn't that close. If the Lakers play like that the rest of this series, it's over. Of course, they have been consistently inconsistent, so chances are they won't play like that the rest of this series, so it's not over. Yet.
So the Pre is out! And since I was otherwise occupied yesterday, and since I want one, I called around and the Pre is sold out. Not one to be had anywhere around L.A. or San Diego. Will keep trying... in the meantime, TechCrunch notes a definite advantage of the Pre over an iPhone: push Gmail. Since I use Exchange this doesn't affect me (both the Pre and the iPhone have push Exchange), but it does seem like a compelling advantage.
Here's an interesting debate: stripes or polka dots? (With regards to bikinis, that is :) I think this one is too close to call, but I will monitor with great interest. I would have to pick Denise Richards over Carmen Electra, stripes or dots or whatever, but YMMV.
In no way related to the previous post: Men married to younger women live longer. "Now, it could be that guys who do not age as fast are more attractive in their 40s and 50s than guys who age more rapidly. So they have an advantage over more rapidly aging guys when pursuing younger women. Then they also live longer for the same reason they were able to get the young woman. But some readers might want to play it safe and marry a younger woman just on the chance this might help." Reported purely out of academic interest...
CNet has a great photo gallery from 1925: When GM's designs ruled the road. How the mighty have fallen...
The top selling car in the U.S. last year? Why, that's easy... it was the Little Tykes Cozy Coupe, of course. "The Cozy Coupe sold 457,000 units in 2008, topping the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. In the '90s, it outsold both the Accord and Ford Taurus." Not to mention it has maintained great brand recognition :)
