The MacWorld Expo 2007 keynote is over, and for the first time in years, there is nothing to lust after.
Sure, the Apple TV looks nice, but if you rock it ghetto-style with a non-HD TV, you can’t play in that sandbox. Perhaps after the altar of stupidity in the house has been upgraded…
The iPhone sure seems like a sweet little piece of tech, but it can’t beat the RAZR I have from work on one important count: The RAZR costs me $0.00. And since I already have a Nano and absolutely love the form factor and that I can carry it on a lanyard, the fires of techno-lust are smothered and quenched.
At least now all the iPhone speculation can stop taking up space on the Internet, so that’s something.
Come on, Steve, talk dirty to me about Leopard…

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
