""I don't know about you, but I spend New Year's Eve 1999 sitting quietly at home, in bed, with plenty of loaded guns at the ready just in case the world ended."That isn't that big of a deal, to Gerstmann that might be New Year's 1999 but in certain parts of the country that's known as an Alabama Tuesday.
I spend EVERY New Year's Eve like that. Except I usually have a half gallon of whiskey, too."
"Jeff said:HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, good one."- As of midnight tonight, it will be illegal to send text messages while driving a car in California. What is this, RUSSIA?."No, in Russia you can't drive a car while in California."
Hopefully things will not end tonight.. I still have a lot of things and some more women on my list!
The Time Warner and Viacom beef will result in us (the consumers) losing badly. it sucks that the big corps are trying to save money by putting pressure on the network broadcasters. I'm in the online Advertising biz and it's the same everywhere. (The K&L incident personally caused me a few headaches with their ad campaigns.) But that is NO excuse for the actions being taken. Let's hope for the best in '09, but I'll keep my fingers crossed just in case.
"- As of midnight tonight, it will be illegal to send text messages while driving a car in California. What is this, RUSSIA? I look forward to watching people exploit the system by saying "I wasn't texting, I was looking for a new song to play on my music-capable phone" and watching courts explode with the ensuing nonsense. If you want to keep people focused on the road, just pass a law that bars all distractions instead of just lashing out at one specific piece of technology. Dopes."
AndrewB: I own an 80gb Zune. I think the biggest question is who owns a 30gb (1st gen) Zune.That one's easy. All the early adopters that made it possible for you to own an 80GB. As Tycho said, "that'll teach 'em."
@BiffyMcB: in Russia it isn't called an emoticon, it's called a Putinicon, and all "negative" Putinicons are prohibited. They're even considering outlawing the "suggestive wink" Putinicon. Sounds insane but it's 100% true.I'll forgo the obligatory "Oticon" joke, but will all the winks be replaced with the kissing-boys-stomachs Putinicon? O_o
Wow, I have a 30gig first gen Zune and didn't even realize it was broken until I read this. In visiting the Zune website, it's going to remain frozen until tomorrow at which point I'm supposed to reboot it after noon. What the F. Tax return can't come soon enough to get myself an iPhone.
I'm in Mexico right now with my family and some hawkers were like "Hey, you want Cuban Cigars?" and my brother said "No, they bad for you!" and they said "Hey, the world's gonna end in 3 years so it don't matter!"
