Nest Learning Thermostat is a Remarkable Device

Wow. Just wow. I follow the technology- and Apple-centric news sites and blogs, so of course I’ve been hearing about the Nest Learning Thermostat for a while. I really hadn’t given serious thought to getting one until about a week ago, when my home thermostat lost touch sensitivity on the middle third of the touch […]

My wife and I re-watched Glengarry Glen Ross this past weekend, and I am always struck by the Alec Baldwin scene.

Potliquor and what it tells us about iTunes

For anyone who still doubts the breadth and depth, or value, of iTunes, I present for your consideration the iTunes Artist Page for Potliquor. This small southern rock band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, whose heyday, if you can call it that, was in the early 70s, is now on iTunes. So obscure is this band, […]

Michael Wilbon said it best on PTI: We begin with a man hitting his 600th home run–without his name attached to steroids, without a scandalous trainer, without a federal investigation, without perjuring himself before Congress.
