doing nothing but boosting my confidence in airport security when twice in one week people have been found to smuggle themselves into airplanes..... wonder if that means that they could stash an explosive or something like that in there. ya think???

Looks like the Isreali's are realizing that the simple math of their occupation plans doesn't work.

Israeli Leader Warns of Settlement Fight
It seems to me to be a stretch to go from "Saddam poses an imminent threat and has WMD in hand" this quote:

"Pressed to explain why his administration had asserted Saddam possessed weapons, when at best fragmentary evidence of programmes had been found, Mr Bush replied: 'So what's the difference? 'If he were to acquire weapons, he would be the danger,' he said in an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer."

what a suprise.... NOT!:

So, on the one side of the coin you have stories about ballplayers like Joe Horn using his cell phone to celebrate a touchdown and guys like Gary Sheffield holding out for an extra million a year.... and then there are sports stories like this one.

interesting. first phone to have MS Windows Smartphone OS. Wondering when Sprint will have one. They are such morons about Samsung and Sanyo phones though - I don't have alot of confidence. The one Sprint phone that would compete against this uses the Palm OS and is about $500 - way overpriced.

I only have one question about this story.

It closes by"After all, if Google conducts an auction and the price proceeds to plummet, investors will blame Google, not its bankers."

My question is - wouldn't they blame Google either way? Who was standing there and yelling at the I-banks when Webvan and TheGlobe were tanking? No one complained about the i-banks till much later in the game and not for their lack of support for the shares but instead for portioning out shares to their friends. I think that Google will be a big enough deal that they will find a way to make one of the big bankers into Google marketmakers along the way, the only difference is that they will have to work for their money instead of skimming it all off the top.

Will Google be giggling?
i never would have believed it if i hadn't read it - i am still a little skeptical that this is some kind of hoax of a press release. a place like this doesn't really exist, does it??

I've been talking about this since they first started the insane bidding wars on 3G licenses. Unfortunately for the wireless companies, they have actually been TOO successful since that bidding war happened, so many people have signed up and customer penetration rates are so high (85% in UK and 94% in Italy) that the only way to get people to move from their current phone/plan is to offer something truly compelling, and that isn't even close to happening yet.

3G - A Network too far?
please Miami, please please please don't give away the farm and prove yet again that you are a bunch of local yokels when it comes to politics and give the Marlins the key to the bank when it comes to financing a new stadium. it's simple, a ball club doesn't generate more income for the area and Miami needs revenue like no one can imagine!!

let us hope. if the marlins gut their team again, baseball may have to leave south florida.

I think that one of the most telling parts of this article is at the end - where Miami is considering giving free tuition to private schools for the people working at the Freet Trade zone headquarters. Isn't that kind of a negative marketing message? We want you so bad that you don't have to deal with our own crappy educational system??

Low-Cost Supercomputer Put Together From 1,100 PC's

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21 — A home-brew supercomputer, assembled from off-the-shelf personal computers in just one month at a cost of slightly more than $5 million, is about to be ranked as one of the fastest machines in the world.

Word of the low-cost supercomputer, put together by faculty, technicians and students at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, is shaking up the esoteric world of high performance computing, where the fastest machines have traditionally cost from $100 million to $250 million and taken several years to build.

The Virginia Tech supercomputer, put together from 1,100 Apple Macintosh computers, has been successfully tested in recent days, according to Jack Dongarra, a University of Tennessee computer scientist who maintains a listing of the world's 500 fastest machines.

State Dept. Study Foresaw Trouble Now Plaguing Iraq

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 — A yearlong State Department study predicted many of the problems that have plagued the American-led occupation of Iraq, according to internal State Department documents and interviews with administration and Congressional officials.

Beginning in April 2002, the State Department project assembled more than 200 Iraqi lawyers, engineers, business people and other experts into 17 working groups to study topics ranging from creating a new justice system to reorganizing the military to revamping the economy.

Their findings included a much more dire assessment of Iraq's dilapidated electrical and water systems than many Pentagon officials assumed. They warned of a society so brutalized by Saddam Hussein's rule that many Iraqis might react coolly to Americans' notion of quickly rebuilding civil society.

so - the letters didn't come from as high as i had originally thought - though the fact that the spokesman for the battalion had originally said that there wasn't an organized effort to put these out to the various news sources.

that means one of two things - either the sargeant/spokesperson lied or the lt. colonel taking responsability for it lied....

up to you to decide on who.
