Inside Consumers Reports, Trailers, Palin Stupidity and Ann Nixon Cooper

Inside Consumer Reports' Testing Lab - From Gizmodo, an article that has images and two videos from the magazines testing labs. If you don't subscribe, I recommend it, as it can save you some time and money and maybe provide that tipping point when debating which products to buy.

The Day The Earth Stood Still TV Spots - I am not sold on this movie yet. The effects look good, Keanu Reeves taste in entertaining movies is rock solid, it’s just that I still have no idea what the story is about. I guess the earth is about to kill the human race unless one guy can be convinced (probably by the kid he runs with) not to. Havoc ensues in the meantime. The special effects look really good though based on the spots below.

Meet Ann Nixon Cooper - The 106 year old from Atlanta was the centerpiece of Barack Obama's acceptance speech. As they said she has seen a lot of history and met a lot of those figures too. Oddly she hasn't met Obama yet but hopefully that will change. Either because he gets an invite to his inauguration or because he comes to Atlanta to help Martin defeat that slime Saxby Chambliss.

Palin vs McCain Information - From Fox News, behind the scenes information is starting to come out regarding Palin and her extreme lack of knowledge and attitude she had during the campaign. Everything you hear about her continues to support the notion that she is truly Bush in drag. We had eight years of a non-intellectual that remains curious about nothing and it seems Republicans want the female version of the same thing.

Windows 3.x Discontinued - 18 years later and Microsoft has finally ended the licensing of the legendary operating system. My first computer ran off of 3.1 and its how I learned many of the computer skills I have today. It is amazing how much computers have and have not changed over the years.
