  1. The players started getting sick so it was a smart move. This was a HUGE step. It was not expected. This sent a shockwave across the nation. This may have been the tipping point where more people started taking it serious. (More people started talking about COVID-19.)

    This year's Projected Super Bowl Winner?

    Steelers will go to the Super Bowl again. :D They played great last night against the Eagles. (rub, rub)
  3. The United States lost its top-tier AAA credit rating from Standard & Poor's on Friday in an unprecedented blow to the world's largest economy in the wake of a political battle that took the country to the brink of default. S&P cut the long-term U.S. credit rating by one notch to AA-plus on concerns about the government's budget deficit and rising debt burden. The action is likely to eventually raise borrowing costs for the American government, companies and consumers. "The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics," S&P said in a statement.

    Are Netbooks Headed for Extinction?

    Yes, netbooks are headed for extinction. More and more people are using their tablets for everyday tasks - email, messaging, events, even document creation. Soon we will have a keyboard for tablets - via bluetooth connection or something like that. Android/Honeycomb is all Google. Google is about connecting everyone to the cloud; So, it makes sense to build their mobile OS with capabilities to add accessories. give it 2 years and say bye-bye

    Windows 8 and Mac OSX Lion

    Come on, we're talking about Microsoft here - there will be a few versions available for the OS. Personally, I like the direction they're going with Windows 8. I would love a touchscreen in every room of the house - listening to music, browse the web, or just watch a video. It shouldn't matter what type of appliance you're using - the interface should be familiar across all of them. I think that's the direction even Apple will eventually take. You can already see hints of this with their OS X Lion update. ---------- I have an HP Touchsmart all-in-one that I use on a daily basis (for business and entertainment). I go back and fourth with touch, keyboard, and mouse. I love it! We are moving to a point where you will be able to run your desktop software on any appliance (ie. tablet). All computers (appliances) in the near future will have touch capabilities. Creating an interface that will work on anything is a smart move.

    Obama Jumps Into Presidential Fray

    President Obama will win in 2012. People are starting to see Republicans at what they are - just talk. In many states, Republicans are starting to scare people away. They won in 2010 on a Jobs platform and what have they done so far? zilch, nada, nothing ... if anything they are adding to the unemployed President Obama has everything going for him right now... The economy is improving. The unemployment rate is going down. History on his side... I believe only 1 Democrat President ever lost his re-election - Jimmy Carter. I'll be voting for Obama.

    iOS 4.3 Update Debuts iTunes Home Sharing

    thanks for this one of the reasons why people hate Apple is the fact that they force people to make multiple purchases of the same item (for multiple products) - this new feature changes all of that now, all that's left - Flash and monthly subscription plans to iTunes (music, movies, etc) ... this time next year, we will see both

    iPad 2 Shakes the Tablet World

    You can now get an iPad 1 for $400. A refurbished iPad 1 now goes for $350. (now, that's cheap!) I purchased an iPad for my wife back in January (birthday) - she loves it. She's on it every night - email, music, recipes, dieting, and reading.
