I have relied on amazon.com for my supply of books for as long as I can remember. Textbooks when I moved to New York for graduate school. Cookbooks when I moved in with a guy. Self help books when I broke up with another one. Amazon has been there for me in all the big moments in my life, knows my dirtiest secrets, is the first one to find out if I am going through a weird raw food or understanding men or understanding the universe phase, helps me sell some books when I am low on cash (that didn't go so well because last moment I would keep the books and refund the buyers), and knows what...

February 18, 2009 is the deadline to convert to digital television. What are you talking about, I never asked for digital? Well that is a little complicated for this article; (see www.ntia.doc.gov) however it is either go digital or go dark. And no, you don’t have to buy a new television.

I would probably make Amsterdam my headquarters, journeying from... Read More
Time Warner will possibly be the first high-speed Internet provider to switch to a totally new pricing structure.
The company is set to begin a trial run in Beaumont, TX in which it will sell high-speed Internet access in a tiered structure based on how much data is download per month.
I have a bad feeling about this. Internet access has become so cheap that companies like Time Warner are looking for new ways to increase profits.
This tiered pricing structure sounds disturbingly similar to the way cell phone minutes are priced. I don’t even use Time Warner, but... Read More
“I got the sense that people weren’t as thrilled as we were with the Macbook Air, so I spoke with John Ive (Apple’s Chief Designer) and he told me about a Black Project even I didn’t know was going on.” Indeed, the Macworld community left out a depressed sigh at the sight of the Macbook Air, hailed by the computer company as the ‘World’s Thinnest Notebook.” When Jobs noticed that they weren’t impressed, he was up to the new challenge.
“And there’s one more thing,” uttered Jobs on Tuesday during a press conference... Read More
