$200k for a Space Joyride? Sure, Why Not?

Published by under News,Tech

“Passengers would get about 4.5 minutes of zero-gravity time”. What do you do with the other 2.5 minutes then once you have joined the 20 mile high club?

Full of Air

Published by under News,Tech

I know everyone is really stoked about the new MacBook Air, but my sentiments exactly.

It seems cool, but not so practical. A bit too expensive for a novelty item. I have to give it to Apple, though. They definitely have their faithful and I think more than a few will flock to it. I can’t wait to see one though.

Amy: we are going to have to buy a farm and live off the land pretty soon
Amy: i will grind wheat, and you can plow the fields
Me: what we need to start doing is eating the stupid people – that’s a two fold solution
Amy: :)
Me: it reduces the number of mouths to feed and also provides more food

First world hunger, then world peace!!

Computer mouse remade in stainless steel

Seriously. After a couple of bad beats, I’ve given my mouse a “bad beat” or two.

Poker News

Published by under News,Poker

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any news on the legal front of online poker. It’s been a while since there has been much that is noteworthy (other than the whole AP debacle). But today, I saw a few news items that seemed to look promising on the front of online poker.

Harrah’s potentially buying Party Poker and a news report of a committee meeting concerning the subject. Both of these pieces of news, while nothing that is really changing anything at the moment, seem to be good for the sake of future developments. If a major casino would have a huge vested interest in online poker other than the added benefit of the gained interest recently, it would be huge giving it a lobbying partner with a voice.

I am glad to hear about the committee meeting too. So many of the committee reports I’ve heard of have revolved around inaccuracies, stereotypes and misconceptions that revolve around the ethically gray area of online poker. How it got this image, is debatable, but the fact that it’s there is all but undeniable.

Hopefully it’s just the start and this helps lay the groundwork for more good legal news to come.

It’s the driving force of news media everywhere to conjure up ratings. (even if it’s fictional news)
