Nexus One: The New Google Cell Phone?

12 Dec

The New Google Cell Phone - Nexus OneAfter all, Google is coming out with their own cell phone designed by HTC. It was reported several years ago that Android was going to be Google’s free cell phone to the masses. There would have been no monthly charges, no data fees as the free service would be supported targeted ads served up to users. The G1 was suppose to be that cell phone, but Google quickly refuted those claims saying that they weren’t making a cell phone, but they were making an open source Linux software that would be available for all cell phone makers.

The Character Assassination of Tiger Woods

12 Dec

Tiger Woods fall from graceTiger Woods was the untouchable golden boy of golf. While some politicians may be off limits for obvious reasons, we now see that celebrities aren’t, after witnessing the media’s character assassination blitz against the worlds #1 Athlete.

In yesteryear, such stars as Michael Jordan and politicians as John F. Kennedy enjoyed the media’s lack of thorough reporting when an incident would negatively affect their image. Not to say Jordan was out there doing the same thing Tiger Woods was, but stuff like punching his teammate in the face, his addiction to gambling, were not thoroughly reported, and probably hardly investigated. In a capitalistic country, this is somewhat understandable when you’re a breathing, walking, and living product known in many living rooms across the country.

Michael Jordan in Utah? Blame it on Social Media

10 Dec

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, its Michael Jordan. Maybe, maybe not. It turns out, social media does work, even when the person using it is straight up lying.

When Michael Jordan gave his Hall of Fame speech he mentioned that Bryon Russel motivated him to come back. He also mentioned he didn’t push off of Bryon Russel when the Bulls beat the Jazz in the NBA Finals in 1998 (He did push off). The two had unsettled business.

Mark Cuban’s Kryptonite

9 Dec

Mark Cubans KryptoniteI remember when the Dallas Mavericks were the doormat to the NBA. They were horrible, their uniforms sucked, and their players, well, I don’t remember who played for them. The only notable player that I can remember is Derrick Harper. Such records as 11-71, 13-69, they were far from stellar. Then along came Mark Cuban. He made them stellar.

After Mark Cuban took over the Mavericks in 2000, the Mavericks have made the playoffs 9 out of 10 times (very impressive). The Dallas Mavericks are champions for having turned around their team so quickly. There’s no doubt that they should have been the 2006 NBA Champions. They would have been champions if it weren’t for some ludicrous referring. Those refs were possibly working for the same people that Tim donaghy used to work for.

Fact Checking Sarah Palin Going Rogue

22 Nov

Has the AP gone mad? No, they did not spend much time or resources fact checking Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rouge, but they are wasting Americans time with their ill fascination and humiliation of the new politician on the scene. I neither dislike, nor like Sarah Palin, but I do feel bad for her, and at the same time respect her sudden rise in the Republican forefront. One has to consider, why the AP did not mention that she got stuck with bills from the presidential election that McCain’s camp promised to pay for. FACT!
