John McCain recently released a tire gauge in conjunction with a small portion of something Obama said about energy conservation that among other things, Americans need to ensure that our tires are properly filled. McCain thought this was a terrific idea and thus has decided to throw his support behind Barack Obama and offer up these tire gauges with Obama inscriptions on the side of them.
The new kid on the block that has been making a lot of headlines over the last week is the new search engine by some former Google employees called Cuil.com. The developers of this site are promising two main things with Cuil. They are promising more relavant searching as well as private searching. I’ve been messing with it for the last week and I thought I’d share my thoughts on this particular engine.
On my work this last week I was listening to a Nirvana song (likely Teen Spirit) and realized that I had yet to own an album of theirs. I don’t know what it is, but for some reason I never cared for Nirvana in the 90s during the height of grunge. I liked grunge, just not theirs. For some reason now, I really like them though. They have grown on me, either that or I too am a bandwagon jumper and have decided like everyone else to proclaim Kurt Cobain’s genious only after he has died. At any rate, I decided that I really want to go out and own some of their albums, or at the very least one.
I decided to buy My Weight Loss Coach a few weeks ago. This was actually kind of a difficult decision on my part. I didn’t really care for My Word Coach that much, and like it’s predecesor, My Weight Loss Coach carried on the problem of being a bit over-priced. But what ended up to be the selling points of it really were that I need to lose weight, this is the only such thing out there for the DS, and at the very least the pedometer that is included would be nice to have to see how much I’m walking.
After months of hard work, I finally got my computer working. Or at least I think I do. I finally got it up and running last night, had it on all evening and it didn’t crash. Just turned it on this morning, and again appears good. It seems that the entire problem really was a motherboard problem that somehow looked and felt like a hard drive problem. I bought an Asus M3N-HD/HDMI, I didn’t really want to buy another Asus because that was the last one I had, but it had the features I was looking for at the price I was looking at so I just bought it. So far so good.
I am currently in the process of moving. We actually just signed our new lease last night for the apartment that we chose after a rapid fire weekend of showings. The apartment is pretty nice actually, almost twice the size of our current apartment, a ton of amenities, and a much more professional upkeep than we’ve had. But in this process, I’ve wanted to make some lifestyle changes; I guess that’s what you could call them. In particular I want to get rid of cable television.
