I have been using my autoposter to much lately. I think it does not allow my personal touches to come through as much as a hands on blog entry... so here you go a real old school non-automated blog entry... there might be some autoposted links later in the day.
I am in the market for a new MP3 player... maybe. I am about to finally get a new phone and the new phone is completely capable of most of these features. Namely FM, music and movies. The phone I am looking at can take the memory stick right out of my PSP and play the movies on my phone! I like that! Anyway MP3 lusty time...
This player is about to be released in the US and is one of my top contenders.
It's called the Meizu miniPlayer it's from China and it's going to be an Apple killer.
Next on my list is the Creative Zen V Plus
I like the size of this player smaller than the Nano albeit twice as thick, it will work well in the gym. It has FM, mp3 and movie playback. The screen even self orients when you turn it around. Plus a name like Creative I can trust.
The only problem with both of these units is capacity. They are going to max out at 4gigs. Now that is flash based so good for running and other activity but it's still a bit on the low side. I think in the end I may end up with a high capacity unit and work out unit. There are rumors that by the end of the year the Nano and other flash Apple based players will have 12g of goodness and there is a hack for watching video on a Nano now, but the screen is to small for that when on a treadmill so they will have to make that better and there is the question of will I use it?
I have a PSP that is capable of the all of these things now. I also have a Neuros recorder that record directly to the memory stick for playback on the PSP and yet the PSP has never seent he inside of a gym. I don't know I do know I am tired of hearing the same music on my Rio. (the cable got stolen years ago and there is no replacement as the unit is to old) I have another MP3 unit for running, but the batteries have failed on it now and they are not user replaceable. Why do these manufacturers do these things!
Enough of all that maybe I'll just but my Sony w810i and be done with it.

So how do you stop that fleeing felon? High speed car chases are about to become a thing of the past. this article describes how the police are going to start tagging cars with GPS darts so they don't have to chase them. They just track them at the station then move in once they stop moving.
The other day I blogged about a rapid fire rubberband gun made from Legos. How about this!
Lego Crossbow! v.cool!
Somethings in life are not fair. Everyone feels like that sometimes. I had a slightly eye opening weekend. First as most of you know I am kind of a let's go, carpe diem, no time like the present type of person anyway. At least sometimes. I tend to try my best to live life and do "things"! Angie, Dade and I went to the movies last night to see the comedy "Click". In the movie Adam Sandler goes to Bed Bath and Beyond to get a universal remote, he finds the Beyond department and gets a remote that can control his universe. Ultimately in the end as he fast forwards his life he realizes that in his very well intentioned quest to succeed in business and provide for his family he was never around and ended up alone and somewhat estranged from everyone.
Why am I telling you this? Angie got a call this weekend and a good friend of hers, same age and all, well her husband had "acid reflux" and ended up going to the emergency room for it. It turned out to be stomach cancer. The prognosis for life beyond 5 years is poor. One minute you are fine the next you are on death's door. You must take the time to cherish what you have right now! Right this minute if you can! Hug your kids, call your mom, have a beer with dad. You'll wish you had done all of that when you get your call. Don't live to work. Don't forget to smell the roses, put your toes in the sand, take a nap!
ENJOY LIFE! No matter how bad things are, you really got it pretty good ... just to be in this world!
On another note... would you want to know? One minute it's Acid Reflux the next it's visit from the grim reaper. You know "ignorance is bliss". Would you want to know? In this case hell yes! There is a fighting chance to beat and I'd rather have my chance at the plate. Let me take my swings! At any rate knowing means that everything looks brighter, tastes better, feels better and ultimately is more important! Each day will be the best day ever, so maybe knowing is better.
i never want to know.
but somehow i find myself there...
asking the questions no one wants to tell the answers to.
i hope he sees that life is too short for all the CRAP medicine they will feed him.
2 months of regular life, or 4 months of not getting out of bed?
but i have been there, so my view is slightly distorted!

Scroll down teh page to see the pictures and a poem sample and you will surely be amazed that someone could make something this elaborate around 1800!
