I’m sitting at home, well mostly not sitting but laying down at home, sick as a dog today. I think the last six months or so have caught up with me. I’ve been in and out of sleep most of the day, but I’m up and about for a bit, watching some football, and checking up on things. Below are some random thoughts on some random things. Some of which may be drug induced.
Who in the NFL things wearing the throwback uniforms is a good idea? Must be the same person who thinks Rush Limbaugh shouldn’t be allowed to buy into ownership.Yeah, I know that last point is controversial, but when you think about it all the NFL is about is making money, not sports, and certainly not being some moral social compass. What’s one more big mouth druggie going to do that they rest haven’t done already. I don’t agree with Limbaugh’s positions on most things, and I think he’s lost much of his entertainment value, but in an age where we let elected officials on all sides tell blatant lies, get away with it, and honor them for it, I don’t see what the big deal is here. That said, Limbaugh’s Op-Ed in the Wall St. Journal is a pretty good example of just how much of a sham the whole thing is.
The White House is going to start booking representatives on Fox. What took them so long? Axelrod says Fox isn’t a news organization but instead pushes a point of view. Geez. It took them this long to figure that out? Maybe Keith Olbermann told them.
The Boy in the Balloon was an interesting few moments and promises to be even more so now that officials think it was a hoax from the get go. The father will probably be crucified by the media and officials, but think about it, I’m guessing that beyond child abuse, did he do anything any different than most reality shows do?
Wall St. money men (and women?) are about to get some pretty amazing bonuses from what I’m hearing. I just want them to send me a thank you note.
Apple’s Phil Schiller was poo-pooing Windows 7 this week. Interesting that he didn’t mention the bug in Snow Leopard that destroys data if you log in with a Guest account.
AT&T needs to understand geography a bit better, a least here locally in Virginia. I got an email trumpeting better service in Virginia the other day, telling me that my coverage just keeps growing. Turns out it is for other parts of the state than where I live. At least they’re trying to live up to their promises.
Verizon is going after Apple and AT&T’s iPhone with the Verizon Droid. Sounds pretty good. I think we may be seeing the beginning of Apple and AT&T’s arrogance finally starting to chip away. I love the iDon’t concept.
