What is it about Satellite radio that has caused over x subscribers to sign up for Sirius over the past x months? Is it the superior technology?

The new eye… Continue reading Satellite Radio, Rich Content and the Threat of Wi-Fi/Wi-Max
Just a quick post to advertise for Advertise For Peanuts. This site features creative advertising spots of a viral nature.

I have a long-standing rant against Apple’s iPod and iTunes system of consumer enslavement, and have managed to stay well away from their products. I’m afraid things have not gone as well for my friends. I’ve wanted to explain my hatred for the iPod in so many words for some time and my recent purchase… Continue reading Why My Sony Walkman D-NE320 is Better than your iPod Could Ever Be
