Wow dude, that is starting to really look awesome!
Just about all of the tiles have been installed, the biggest portion of them being those around the tub. We used four different tiles: for the floor, the tub apron, the tub surround and then a smaller one that came in mats fo...

Wow, I'm really disappointed with Apple's announcement. Why couldn't they have had that 3 months ago? They really let the hype get out ahead of them and now they seriously missed expectations.

Me too. :( I think I might just buy a Kindle Fire instead of upgrading my iPhone.

A 2 year upgrade cycle seems to be the pattern for iPhone.

I think John really hit the nail on the head here:

"The iPad is a credible laptop replacement for many people — and with iCloud and another year or two of hardware improvements, that’s going to be true for more and more people. The Kindle Fire is a laptop replacement for almost no one. It’s a peripheral, not a second computer — and it’s priced accordingly."
- John Gruber

Both the iPad and the Kindle Fire enable a great multimedia/web viewing experience. People who don't want a laptop replacement (and are willing to invest in amazon's media) will love the Kindle Fire, and those that do will love the iPad. I think each of these will be very big market segments.

I think I fall into the former group, which is why I'm so excited for the Kindle Fire. I predict that Apple will also want to go after the non-laptop-replacement-segment and will eventually release a 7" as well. Which I will also buy because I'm a whore.

It is interesting is that it is $30 cheaper than the cheapest iPod Touch which is the Apple device it seems to compete with most directly.

Warren Buffet's ideas to fix congress:

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office
and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All
funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security
system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system,
and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for
any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans
do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay
will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the
same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American
people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen
made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor,
not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours
should serve their term's), then go home and back to work.

Okay, the service wasn't very prompt, but that is just something that I expect in Europe. Aside from that, the food was good, but the ambiance was amazing. We went back twice, but still didn't get a chance to try the strudel.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The location was excellent, great restaurants, and easy access to all the sites. Their bicycles are a little over priced, but the rooms are great, the amenities are great and the staff is super helpful. We will stay here again when we back to berlin.

We were not a huge fan of this hotel. The room smelled very bad, and a lot of things didn't work, like the wifi and the shower drain. This is a pretty typical cheap hotel, except it was more expensive than our stay at the Swissôtel downtown. It is only 15 min cab ride to the airport from downtown, so I wouldn't even recommend staying this close to the airport
