My first teddy bear. The teddy bear is a classic shape every twister should have in their repertoire, but for some reason I've never gotten around to trying it until today. I'm getting ready for a family reunion, where I expect to be doing a lot of balloon twisting. :-)

Betas are easy to publish, but they're not much use if customers don't try them. If we don't hear from people (good or bad comments), then having that beta on our web site just eats up disk space for no good reason. It's the proverbial tree falling in the forest with nobody to hear it.

How can we encourage our users to try our betas, and perhaps more importantly, to give us feedback?

Not a great first experience with Google Music. I took the "tour" at http://music.google.com/about/tour/, and at the end was offered "Zero Gravity" by the Teddybears as a free song to start my library. I clicked Get This Song, and was popped to the Android Market with this message: "We're sorry, the document you requested is not available in your country."

Thanks for getting my hopes up.

My kids and I did this experiment this evening, in our -30C weather: throw a cup of boiling water in the air, and most of it floats away as ice crystals before it reaches the ground.

Friendly and trustworthy service. I've used Silver Springs Automotive for several years, from oil changes to brake work, and never felt I was being taken advantage of. Occasionally they even take a look at something small (like changing a bulb I can't figure out how to access) right out in the parking lot and don't charge me. The one fault that baffles me (and the reason I only gave four stars) is they charge $80 to replace my cabin air filter, which is a 2-minute toolless job and a $20 part. That's some pretty steep markup! But on all other jobs I have compared their prices and recommendations to other mechanics and find them very reasonable.
