a small dose of reality

keeping it semi real, promoting conservatives, taking potshots at fools, democrats other than Obama, liberals, the left, know it alls, the dnc, etc., reviews of models, pundits and blogs

I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.

Apple Launches Text-sharing Device, the CoTex

@ 10:13 PM (51 months, 8 days ago)

 

In the same week that it launched its much-touted iPad, Apple introduced its latest game-changer to the tech marketplace, a text-sharing device called the CoTex.  "There are a lot of texting devices out there that can absorb data," said Apple founder Steve Jobs.  "But nothing absorbs more than a CoTex."

Mr. Jobs said that when used in conjunction with Apple's just-released mobile device, the AllWays StayFree, "the CoTex has what it takes to handle a heavy flow of information."  When asked about the flurry of new products that Apple has released at the end of January, Mr. Jobs mused, "I guess it's that time of the month."

O’Brien Said to Be Near Deal to Leave NBC’s ‘Tonight Show’ and New Show on QVC

@ 11:52 PM (51 months, 22 days ago)

 

Good riddance to bad rubbish.  That crybaby needs to hit the unemployment line.   Conan gets job with QVC.  Conan O’Brien is close to an agreement to leave NBC, resolving a stalemate with the network after he refused to host the “Tonight Show” in a later time period, said two people with knowledge of the discussions.  An agreement may be reached by tomorrow, said the people, who asked not to be named because negotiations are private. The talks could still fall apart, said one of the people. NBC will pay about $40 million to O’Brien and members of his staff and will allow him to work at another network, the New York Times reported earlier.

Full Body Scans to Double as Annual Checkups

@ 09:43 PM (51 months, 29 days ago)

 

In what some in the White House are calling a "win/win" solution to the nation's airport security and health care reform problems, starting next month U.S. airports will begin conducting full body scans that will double as annual physical checkups.  President Obama announced the breakthrough solution, telling reporters, "With this all-purpose exam, we will be able to find everything from a hidden weapon to a spot on your lung."

After scanning a passenger, Mr. Obama said, "We will either give you a clean bill of health or wrestle you to the ground."  The President added that instituting the body scan/checkup could ward off some terrorists right from the start, "because a lot of them will balk at the $25 co-pay."  But according to Davis Logsdon, who studies terrorism and health care reform at the University of Minnesota, the body scans may attract more terrorists than they deter: "If there's one complaint that terrorists have about al-Qaeda it's that they have lousy benefits."

Following Christmas Day Terror Attempt, Department of Homeland Security Issues Terrorist ID Cards

@ 07:47 PM (52 months, 8 days ago)

 

In the wake of the Christmas Day airline terror attempt, the Department of Homeland Security today said it was instituting a bold new series of security measures, including issuing an official "proof of terrorism" I.D. card.  "All potential terrorists must have the terrorist I.D. card in order to be barred from boarding," said Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano.  "If you want to get on the no-fly list you'll need a completed application and the $25 fee."

Ms. Napolitano said that while the terror suspect's father had warned the U.S. about his son weeks before the incident, the Homeland Security Dept. was tightening rules in that area as well: "In the future, it will be necessary for a terrorist's mom and dad to warn us before we take it seriously."  The Homeland Security chief said that her department would continue to crack down on the primary threat to air safety: shampoo.

"We will be looking out for shampoo like never before," she said.  "If you want to smuggle it on board, you had better hide it with your bomb-making supplies."  She also praised the Department's decision to ban in-flight bathroom use: "One thing every terrorist has in common is that they eventually need to pee."
