2 weeks of taking care of the boys (Anindita is in India) and we managed to do a Silicon Valley getaway - 4 hours to skiing! It also happened to be Rikki's 9th birthday ! So the gloves are off!
Spooky - when we returned from Bear Valley and parked the car, Rikki was 9 (having been born in 3-99) and the trip meter said 399 miles!!

The lines between online activities and the real world have gotten more and more blurry. Shopping, banking, dating, chat, phone, entertainment - they're moving online more than ever. But you know that Social Networks aren't just for fun when you hear of 600 students not showing up to school due to a Myspace posting that there's going to be a gunman on campus.
What's the world coming to (online or otherwise?)
Blu-Ray wins vs. HD-DVD - the 2-in-one feature of movie watching and game playing on one device was what caused me to go and get a PS3. Seems that this may have worked in favor of Blu-Ray killing off HD-DVD! Now this is helping PS3 sales over Xbox.
There was another good side-effect - PS2 games work on my PS3 - great, since there are not a whole lot of great titles for PS3 yet :-)
Convergence and simplicity .... games on the iPhone which is also a Wiimote :-) One device fits all...pockets.

This quote caught my attention: "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." - Sir Richard Steele
Just realized that I'm not doing much in either department ... reading or exercise!
well ... just started playing some table tennis again, and started reading a book that I've wanted to read for YEARS - "Hitchhiker's Guide..." made it through half the book -
now I want more exercise...!
