Some major media outlets have been slow to adopt social features on their sites and properties. One of the more open-minded outlets is ESPN. They allow you to comment on all of their articles.
Recently, Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot and killed in his home. ESPN has naturally covered it on TV as well as on their site. But the viewers/readers aren’t liking their coverage and letting them know all about it.
pilotsley (Less than a minute ago) Yeah, I was appalled when one of the ESPN guys said he wasn’t surprised by Sean’s death. A TWENTY-FOUR YEAR OLD YOUNG MAN WAS KILLED. We should all be surprised and disgusted by that person’s cowardly actions!
I have followed the coverage a bit, and have noticed that ESPN brings up this guys past actions every chance they get, and whether it’s right or wrong, the people have spoken!
So whilst on the train today I watched a few full length movies on the iPod touch. I have to say it was a lovely experience overall. I dig the wide screen. I could never get into watching video on the iPod video much, and Dubya says that I gave her mine to justify the upgrade to the touch. She’s right wrong, but it still rocks socks.
Plus, I was able to pick up free wifiz at 30th street station, thanks to Cosi!
Overall, I gotta say that this is the coolest gadget I’ve ever had. It really does all that I need it to do and I’m pumped to hear that Apple has been giving out SDK access already.
Why not the iPhone? I love T-Mobile too much. While I do sneer at my lowely sidekick more and more, I just hate AT&T’s slow ass network, plus I just don’t like them in general. I use the web a lot mobile-y (word?), and T-Mobile’s network is always clutch for me. My bill is about 70 bucks a month, but the MyFave’s plan makes most of my usage free.
Anyways, iPod Touch is badass. Gimme more apps Apple!

Google’s “I’m Feeling Lucky” button is such a fun and neat concept.
A concept that should be adopted by stores and restaurants everywhere. How many times do you go into a local grub-stop (restaurant for the non informed) and you know you like a lot of what they have but you don’t know what you want. Or maybe you’d like someone to choose for you. Why not have a “I’m feeling Lucky” option?
Or how about those times where you walk into a Best Buy (Or for the west-coasters) a Fry’s and want to get something because you’re just in the mood to get something new and geeky, but you don’t know what to get?
"I’m Feeling Lucky" is the answer.
I go into WaWa and I’m thirsty but don’t know what to get. Why not have a drink called “I’m Feeling Lucky” and surprise me? It could be exciting. Is it Iced Tea or is it Orange drink? Who knows!?!?!
I’d like to see more people pick up on this “I’m Feeling Lucky” concept and fast. If I’m bored or simply don’t feel like making a decision, I would trust my favorite stores or restaurants to shake it up a little for me once in a while.
A day late, but every single day should be Thanksgiving, shouldn’t it? I mean, minus the Turkey, cakes, pies, cookies, and all. Good lawd that stuff is lethal.
I have quite a bit to be thankful for. A wonderful, beautiful, and inspiring soulmate, a family who loves and supports me no matter what, and friends that do the same. What more could anyone ask for?
Lately I’ve been compiling a bit of a to-do list. Not the normal take out the trash type stuff, major milestone type things. Very specific and important things. I’m going to be writing about each in the next few weeks with more detail.
Tumblr doesn’t support comments and instead of bothering to install an outside commenting system, just email me if you have comments. drdrew (at) gmail.com has been my email since week one of Gmail’s existence and will remain my email address for as long as Google is around. I’ll post comments as quotes.
I hope that everyone is well and got to spend some quality time with their family on this Thanksgiving. Thanks for all of your support and keep an eye on my blog for more posting. I still kind of miss my wordpress, but maintaining comment spam and hating the design of my blog was getting annoying :)
