Still trying to take it all in, but here are some thoughts:Built-in WIFI/EDGE means I can get and create my news/podcasts/vodcasts everywhereBuilt-in camera - photoblogging! Just need a small app for thatRecord voice for podcastsConference call recording for podcast interviews? (legal issues?)Bluetooth means I can...

Netgear announced their Digital Entertainer HD at CES and it plays YouTube content, among many others.Some questions come to mind:Does it do RSS? (apparently not)What must Big Media be thinking? (who cares)I think it is silly to offer a media device these days that...

Nial Kennedy writes about a new Sony TV that can subscribe to RSS. His comment? "Crazy!"Why yes, it is crazy. Let's have more craziness like this. Anything to route around the mediocre fare on cable....

There seems to be a lot of interest in the Rowica* Podcast Player, so here is my two cents about it:I agree with Dave - it must be an RSS aggregator/podcatcher. If it is to aggregate consistently, it needs a charger/cradle. Whenever I'm not...

Check out this Hybrid Mini Cooper with the electric motors in the wheels. 0-60 in 4.5 seconds.I think quiet electric cars are going to be all the rage in a few years, primarily for their awesome acceleration, not to mention their fuel economy....

Robert Young has a good idea, namely Apple should buy YouTube. I would add that if Apple does so, it should also consider how an iPod Blogger model might fit into this. Apple makes a big deal about making podcasts using its platform....

Engadget covers what we know and don't know about the up coming iPod killer called Zune. Apparently it will have WIFI, but will it have an RSS reader and podcast downloader? If it doesn't, I can't really see how this is an interesting or...

Edward Tufte's article on sparklines:http://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0001OR&topic_id=1&topic=...

Here is a wonderful fossil of an ichthyosaur that was found in black shale - an oxygen poor environment that prevented decay of the soft parts of the animal. This is part of the collection of the Natural History Museum in Stuttgart Germany...

With Qwest as the lone holdout in the NSA records sweep, I'm curious to know if their stance will lead to more customers. I certainly looked them up and was disappointed to see that they do not have services in California (other than phone cards...

Mantua locomotives are among my favorites. These locos were first produced in the 1940's and 50's and are tough and reliable. Here are a couple resources for locos and parts.
