Yes, I would tell Verizon to adopt the "Don't Be Evil" motto that Google has. That will solve everything! /s

Play worms while waiting for youtube.com to buffer. I didn't know this existed. Simply hit the up arrow while you get the youtube buffer circle.

Is this news or am I behind the times. Need proof if I am.

This Nokia Lumia 800, really has my attention. I like this new Microsoft that comes out with innovative stuff (see Kinect) and doesn't copy....ah hem Android.

If this phone integrates with xBox really well I think we might see a comeback from Microsoft.

I don't know that Microsoft is relevant like they used to be. Heck, Apple has surged ahead, and the online content folks like Google have made the big GatesCo just another company I'd say.

View from the bedroom of the apartment that I stayed at over Thanksgiving.

That building with the crains is the new World Trade Center. And if you look just right you can see the Statue of Liberty (at the least the island in this picture).

DO NOT GO HERE! BUYER OF REPAIRS BEWARE. This is not a good dealership to bring your car for repair. I have been to 4 different BMW dealerships across the US. Please read the reviews on Sterling BMW and know they send bad reviews to their personal site and good reviews to this site....and there are still many with strong negative experiences with Sterling BMW. 1. I had a recall, with letter in hand from BMW corporate, and they still refused to honor it. It was an air bag replacement on a 2007 335i for the passenger side. Let me add my wife is 8 months pregnant. (pretty sure this is illegal) BAD! 2. I wrote down a list for my service representative to check off as various odds and ends were fixed with the car. I called and we double checked this list. What ended up happening was 1 item on my list of five was addressed and I got new rear brakes and a new back right tire. I ok'd the brakes I did not ok the back right tire. I in fact specifically requested they replace the front right tire and even after checking my list twice there was still a failure in communication. BAD! 3. The prices they quote on some repairs were twice as much as a competitor dealership. A specific repair was for an oil gasket replacement. 1600 was Sterling's quote and another certified dealership said 800. Their excuse was cost of labor. 4. It took 3 days for this repair. 3 DAYS. Brakes and a tire are not a 3 day repair and to throw insult to injury they gave me a Prius to drive during these 3 days as a courtesy car. What self respecting BMW owner wants a Prius in any fashion! One might think, it's a free car, I think they should have simply fixed my car in 1 day and then both me and the dealership would not have to worry about the mediocracy of the compromise car they offered up. My service representative was Bjion. He was average at best. DO NOT GO HERE! BUYER OF REPAIRS BEWARE.
