This is still my favorite wireless mouse. Whether I travel or not. Desktop, laptop, HTPC, etc. It's often on sale way below it's $30 MSRP. It's a steal at $15. And it sometimes drops for $10-12. I own multiples. The Blue tracking works great on everything I use it with. Great size for me. Wheel is just right. Clicks are quiet. All around great wireless mouse.

A long video covering the many Intro logos for Disney movies. I am shocked Disney didn't have the iconic intro logo until 1985 for The Black Cauldron. And then it was the same logo for 10 years until 1995's Toy Story. After that it has had many variations of the 2D logo. It wasn't until 2006 Pirates of the Caribbean 2 that they created the full 3D CGI Castle intro! 6:15s mark in the video. And it only took 5 months after that to create variations on the 3D logo intro! Many more since. And I didn't see any 2D versions after 2006. Imagine that.

If this is really what $100,000+ worth of Legos looks like; then they paid way too much for their legos. And they are already expensive to begin with. In other words, I don't believe their cost. And this isn't only a 3.5 minute video that could easily be done reusing legos between scenes. Even if they kept all the scenes built without reusing, I still don't see $100k worth of legos. Now that my rant is over. This is still a fun video and I am sure they had fun making it.

I hope with all this new Diamond Celebration merchandise, they have a special coin collector book.

So I ask a question on Amazon if Product X works with item Y. And get responses like "I don't know." or "Works with item G". 

Why do people waste their time typing a reply to a question if they don't know the answer?

I love this add-on. But it appears to no longer be on the Chrome store! I hope this is temporary.

Chroma contrast enhancing glasses. Not a cure for the color blind. But a boost that can help green/red color blind. On the technical side, the glasses use cut filters in the visible range where red and green overlap. And where blue and green overlap. By cutting out those overlapping ranges, it basically cuts the haze and confusion of the eye's cones which increases the remaining red, green, and blue. But they do lose out on details contained within the cut spectrum.

"The verdict handicaps any creator out there who is making something that might be inspired by something else, This applies to fashion, music, design ... anything. If we lose our freedom to be inspired we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation. This is about protecting the intellectual rights of people who have ideas." ~Pharrell Williams quote from article.

I meant to post this sooner. The lawsuit won because it was too similar to the "sound and feel", not because it copied the melody, chords, or lyrics. Which is insane. As Williams mentions in this link, this legal precedence is a threat to creativity. Something I tried to voice as well when I heard the verdict to the Blurred Lines lawsuit.

Pharrell Williams has warned that the verdict in the $7.3 million "Blurred Lines" copyright case threatens the work of all musicians, designers, and artists. Williams said that subsequent copycat...

Another funny video. 

Though given his official page and about info; I am not so sure this is supposed to be considered funny as it doesn't have (funny) in the title like some of his videos.

I just went to Bell Honda for the first time. While it is closet to my home, I have generally been going to another Honda Dealership close to work. I took my 2003 Odyssey to Bell Honda for recall work and transmission fluid exchange. While I have had good experiences with various Honda Dealers and Service centers, my service advisor Brian Appleton, and the tech that worked on my van, Jacob Murillo, really made this visit stand out. I wanted my transmission fluid exchanged per the maintenance schedule as I am going to Disneyland in the near future. With service schedules in mind, I was asked about my timing belt. I didn't have that listed in my personal records as I am the 2nd owner. Brian was very helpful by contacting a dealership in California. Where he pulled up more records and found that the last time the belt was replaced, was also the first time. Back at 86k miles. Since I am at 161k miles, I was way overdue for a new timing belt. Had Brian not taken the time and effort to ask about my maintenance history as a new customer to their dealership, I could very well be stranded on my trip to Disneyland. At the same time, he was helpful in making sure other items were inspected and replaced using the same labor cost under the timing belt replacement. This of course is nothing new for any good shop to provide, but he also made sure they were competitive with non-dealer prices so I could do everything at one time. Which not only made sure I didn't spend more than I had to, but also that I didn't have to deal with more time without my van and going all over the place. Likely duplicating labor cost. Jacob Murillo, the mechanic, spent extra time at not cost to me, to make sure repairs where done correctly. While he did run into an issue, he made sure that was not an excuse to rush things. Both Brian and Jacob showed me what quality service and repair is all about. And that is something that really stood out to me above my other experiences. Which those Honda experiences where great as well, but this one was even more and I appreciate the extra effort that came from both of them. As much as I have had good experiences at Honda service centers, I really want to thank Bell Honda for having people like Brian Appleton and Jacob Murillo. It does make a noticeable difference, even when it's excellence all around from Honda service centers.
