Great Deals on Macs Soon?

AppleInsider is reporting that Apple may soon look at liquidating its existing stock of some Mac models in a similar fashion to the recent liquidation of older iPod models.


Some of the Mac systems Apple is looking to discount include "finished goods" stock of Mac minis, first generation iMac G5s and Power Mac G5 desktops. Sources said a percentage of the G5-based systems are believed to be refurbrished items, while the stock of Mac minis are new retail models.

This could push the price of a MacMini down to $399 for clearance purposes.

Danna Drank the Kool Aid



And I think she ordered a venti...

The whole zoo/creation exhibit thing has largely blown over, but we're still getting lots of response from those poor Christians which everyone at the zoo hates and has made it our mission to persecute. This is one of my favorites of the emails we've received. I've taken no liberties - this is verbatim.

THis is primarily to the Board of Directors that voted not to have the creation display!

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on ALL OF U!
What is UR problem?
THis absolutely makes my blood boil!!!!!!!!!!!How DARE ANY of u to take it upon urselves this kind of decision and NOT put it to a vote of the citizens! WE are the ones that keep that ZOO running! Well I choose NOT to patronize the Tulsa ZOO anylonger!
By the way, did u ask God what he thought about it?
I dare u to ask him! U CANNOT take ur next breath without his permission!

GOD Bless America!
In GOD WE TRUST!

Now read the article that Daniel linked to and tell me why we're still living in Jesusland.

Here's another oldie from my favorites list.

It's a place to share your deepest, darkest secret, and people submit some pretty intense stuff.

Lunar Landing

On this day, in 1969, the first man landed on the moon.
In honor of the first manned Moon landing, which took place on July 20, 1969, we've added some NASA imagery to the Google Maps interface to help you pay your own visit to our celestial neighbor. Happy lunar surfing.

They have even plotted out the landing sites of the Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 missions. Zoom into the closest setting to see what the moon is really made of.

Cowboy Love


Here's the poster for Ang Lee's adaptation of Annie Proulx's Brokeback Mountain due out this fall. I've been looking forward to this release for many reasons, only one of which is Jake Gyllenhaal. It's a great story, but since it's only about 50 pages it will be very interesting to see how it's turned into a movie. It'll either be amazing or really bad - no in between. But getting a rather explicit (at least in print) gay cowboy love story produced with two A-list actors and an amazing director is quite an accomplishment.

And I love the tagline: Love is a Force of Nature. That would seem to hint that they will not back down the original storyline too much.

Apple Lowers iPod Battery Replacement Price

If you happen to be fortunate enough to live near an Apple retail store, you can get the battery in your iPod replaced for only $59. They have also lowered the mail-in replacement price to $59.

iPod owners experiencing poor battery life with an existing iPod can bring the player to an Apple-owned retail store for testing. If tests show the battery to hold a charge of only 50 percent or less of its original strength, Apple will offer a replacement for $59.

‘3am’ Scavenger Hunt

Okay, for anyone with a camera and an affinity for recreational challenges, I've got an assignment. I am calling my freelance business 3amDesigner and I am looking for quick digital snapshots of any signage with “3am” in any typstyle, print, or graffiti. Anywhere you think it might appear (restaurant menu, billboard, anywhere — it's a little uncommon hence the challenge) take a quick snapshot and email it to me or post it here. I'll send back PDFs of the project I'm designing with it... Full credit to the various photographers will be given.

Co-Op

In the current Tulsa People magazine there is an article about a company called TriArch (pronounced Tri-Ark, yeah, they can't spell for shit). Anyway, these guys blatantly ripped off our copyrighted architectural concept. What I need is someone who can be legitimate enough to get some of their brochures of their company. They supposedly are passing off work they did with our company as their own. I need proof of that.

These guys are smart, in the sense that they would smell a rat a mile away, but not smart enough to pass off other people's work as their own publicly and get away with it.

Anyone have a suggestion for a covert operation?

super 8 film

Does anyone know where I could get some super 8 film? I would like to get some that might have a home movie exposed on it but unexposed would work.

Call the camera places and they don't care it.

Thanks for your help.

Reposted from Craigslist

As we celebrate our INDEPENDENCE DAY our celebration is overshadowed by new legislation that may impact our privacy. The federal law 2257, is an act that outlines penalties for failure to document the ages of models and actors who appear in sexually explicit imagery. Unfortunately this law could be applied to websites like this one, demanding that Craigslist collect personal information about members that choose to post explicit pictures.

**** Presented to the public as a law designed to protect the exploitation of minors, this is an obviously opportunistic jump to completely bypass the constitution. ****

I encourage you to visit Free Speech Coalition [dotcom] website and learn more about this pending law and find out how you can help protect our First Amendment Rights!

Jumping The Shark

a term to describe a moment when somethin that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality and popularity.

Origin of this phrase comes from a Happy Days episode where the Fonz jumped a shark on waterskis. Thus was labeled the lowest point of the show.

When did Voyager jump the shark?

A. Seven of Nine
B. The Year of Hell
C. Chakotay's vision quests
D. Day one

One Word




OK. I never, ever thought I would find myself uttering (or typing) these words, but I'm totally in love with the new Kelly Osbourne single. It was in heavy rotation at the Chicago clubs and I was smitten before I even knew it was her.

The video is an uber-chic 60's Spy vs. Spy sorta thing and Kelly looks amazing.

Check it out for yourself.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

The new Harry Potter book comes out on July 16th.

Just to let you know, I will not be taking phone calls, emails or knocks on my door for three days after the release.

Skin Care Heaven

The Saturday before last Jason & I had European Spa facials (60 minutes of pure facial bliss - cleanse, steam, exfoliate, mask & massage). To quote Jason - they where "fabulous and cheap"

The place is Dolce on Cherry Street, next to Bourbon Street.

European Spa Facial $55
Express Facial $45
Microdermabrasion $50 (one session) or $250 for 6

If you've never had the experience of an incredible facial - I would highly recommend taking the hour to spoil yourself.
