Cox Communication of Phoenix Boldly Redefines "Available Now" to mean "Available In 12 Days"

So I'm not a huge TV guy or anything, but I like my Audio/Visual entertainment a fair amount. And I pay attention to things happening in the local market. So I've known that Cox was rolling out OnDemand in the Phoenix area for over a year. I even knew that Tempe (where I currently reside) was the slowest to get this technology that the rest of the country and most of the rest of the Phoenix market has had for a while now.


Crazy Sock Headphones, Only from Make...

So I'm browsing some tech news tonight, and I come across this engadget posting for a pair of home made sock headphones. It's actually a posting about this Make Blog Entry. Just another in the long line of cool things people are hacking together. I really like the nature of this one though, it's clever and funny.

OnStar going silent on millions of vehicles

Remember back before you had tivo and you had to watch all those OnStar commercials during football games. Turns out that the original roll out of the service was done on the analog spectrum (not surprising if you look at the time frames we are talking about).
They are taking a small beating in the press:

OnStar going silent on millions of vehicles
A decision by the Federal Communications Commission that allows all cell phone companies to turn off their analog networks beginning in February of 2008 means that nearly two million people, or half of OnStars entire subscription base, will soon find the other end silent when they press that blue button on their vehicles dash.


Exciting job offer

So my resume is on some of the job boards. I like what I do now, but I would also like to be just a bit more creative day to day so I have my eyes at least open... Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that the resume sites (this "hit" came from monster) are sometimes just absurd. I routinely get calls and emails from recruiters looking for me to relocate to awful places that I have in no way indicated I would be willing to relocate to. I'm asked about things I'm clearly not qualified or looking to do. We all know the drill, some key word hit in their search and boom, they're on the phone. But this one got me thinking...


The 13 Most Embarrassing Web Moments

PC World - The 13 Most Embarrassing Web Moments
The Internet is the most efficient information distribution system ever known. But if you're not careful, it's also the perfect way to embarrass yourself in front of the entire world.


U.S. Government Study Determines That 1% of the Internet is pornography, but that’s not why I’m writing this!

A CNN piece with that sensational headline discusses the COPA case as it winds it ways back through the court. The really exciting part of the whole article for me though is here:

Closing arguments in the four-week, non-jury trial before Senior U.S. District Judge Lowell Reed Jr. are expected Monday.

Why would I care about that you might ask? Is it because I happen to remember that he was the judge presiding over the original COPA case and struck it down so many years ago and I find it odd that he would be presiding over it again?
Nope.

It's because Senior U.S. District Judge Lowell Reed Jr. is the man who performed our wedding ceremony when my wife and I married some 13+ years ago.

He actually happens to be pretty tech savvy, and made a sound and studied decision the first time around. I suspect he will again in this case.
