Hearing that Greg Jennings is a no-go for tonight's game. Upgrade Jones a bit, think Cedric Benson is likely the real beneficiary.

Ativ? Dumb name, but what's this mean? Is Samsung subtly shifting to Windows Phone and leaving the copycat stuff behind?

Couple new changes to the FR-S. Can you see what they are?

Sore left foot for Pujols reminds me that no one escapes plantar fasciitis forever. No one.

Just did a great interview with Alan Jaeger. Appropriately, it was long, since we were talking about long toss. It will be on The Nickel later this week.

Alan is tremendous. I remember we spoke for hours on long tossing. Good stuff.

Danny Garcia won tonight by accident. A counter left hit khan in the neck, giving him a spinal concussion. Khans legs never recovered. Never seen that before.

Interesting insight into what's becoming a more frequent treatment. Here's my question: why isn't this approved here?

Here's why videocasting is not podcasting. Cant wait for +Jason Salas to opine on this one.

That's an awesome solution - but $8,500? Ouch. Still, largely better than most commercial rigs. You're right, of course - video podcasts (a distinct subset of podcasting) didn't last. They were way too technical for most folks to put together, setup and maintain.

The hosting costs alone of storing even short productions at a decent bit rate in the pre-HD days would drive most DIY'ers into the poor house. And then there's the bandwidth of having to serve up constant downloads for the files, which most providers do with burstable plans, meaning customers get a finite amount of transfer data plus the charge extra for every megabyte on top of that. So this is a huge bill.

Leo Laporte figured out a business model for his http://twit.tv network, but that's a rare edge case. :)

Writing a book review is a lot like writing a book report back in school. Luckily now I have good editors that make me look good. Now I can add "Wall Street Journal" to the resume line.

Really solid episode of The Nickel this week. Curious if anyone has any suggestions or comments on the show.

This, this, this. I feel absolutely the same way and left Twitter for the same reasons.

Mark - explain to me what my readers are missing. I'm having more time to make phone calls, work on stories, do deeper analysis, rather than answering every tweet. You either ignore most of it and use it as a broadcast medium, or you end up flooded by people you can't monetize.

A high school pitcher with a sprained elbow who touched 99. Yeah, this is not going to go well. At least they got him "cheap" compared to a Strasburg.
