f---ing brilliant

Apple Airport Express with AirTunesI love Apple. Here's why:

I'm sitting on my living room floor, posting this entry from my laptop, which is completely wireless at the moment, and I'm listening to music playing from iTunes on my home stereo-- wirelessly.

I bought an Apple Airport Express last night, connected it to my stereo, set it up on my wireless network, and now I can listen to all the music on my laptop (3,044 songs in 256 albums and counting) on my stereo. Yeah, other companies have been doing streaming wireless multimedia for a while now, but Apple did it right. Simple to set up, even simpler to use.

Apple gets it. Beautiful design and simple to use products. Even their packaging is amazing.

Fucking brilliant. Go Apple!

FedEx Express Logo

A long while back, a friend of mine told me that the FedEx logo had a hidden arrow in it. I thought that was cool, since I had never noticed that. Of course, he didn't have anything with the logo on it to show me, so I had to force myself to remember this little factoid so that when I did run across one, I would look for the arrow.

Months passed. I would see the logo, but forget to look for the arrow. Or, when I would remember to look for the arrow, nary a logo was around. At this point, you are probably wondering, "Steve, just go to fedex.com, you idiot!"

Shuddup! It's my story.

Anyway, I eventually did see the hidden arrow, and today I ran across this interesting blog entry about the FedEx logo, the man who created it, and the hidden arrow. And it's from a guy named Steve.

Yep. Still here. I rebuilt my blog pages tonight, and after staring at the newly blank main page (my last post got moved off the main page because it was too old), and at the urging of a friend, I am posting for the first time in months.

I'm going to avoid saying anything about the election; otherwise, this would be a very long entry indeed. Instead, I'll just point you to this article which presents a more logical view of the election results, rather than the Republican-friendly "Bush Country 2004" view of the same results. Also, in looking up that URL, I just ran across this rather bizarre comparison of the election results with the pre-Civil War divide between free states and slave states. Some people have way too much time on their hands.

Thanks to this election, I am now addicted to political talk shows even more than I was before. No more Food Network... I drool for Hardball, Meet the Press, and Hannity & Colmes now. I need help.


p.s. OK, I lied. I talked about the election. Sorry.
