Joe Cocker Lyrics

Joe's Cocker's voice is impressive. His enunciation not so much. (props Huntsman)

Grado SR-60

My Grado SR-60 headphones (hereto for “cans”) have been faithful companions for the past nine years. They sound pristine for under $70 but, and perhaps more importantly, they have a very sophisticated bio-feedback mechanism that alerts me to get up from my desk at least every hour and stretch my legs. You see, because of their old-skool design the cans make my ear cartilage ache something awful at just about the hour mark. Kudos Grado. Ku. Dos. hese really are the best cans....for me to poop on! No, seriously, they are terrific and I highly recommend them though they aren't the most comfortable pair you can find.

Ballmer on Apple

Ballmer : “In the competition between PCs and Macs, we outsell Apple 30-to-1. But there is no doubt that Apple is thriving. Why? Because they are good at providing an experience that is narrow but complete, while our commitment to choice often comes with some compromises to the end-to-end experience.”

Wireless Music Bliss

Happiness is: My entire music library streaming from my laptop to multiple Airport Expressi especially when they're connected to the Audio Engines A5B powered speakers. Oh, and all controlled via iPhone thanks to Remote.app for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Fake Speed Bumps

As a parent who lived on a street that some used to drag race down I can appreciate the positive effect fake speed bumps are having in some metro areas. Do they, though, like bacteria-resistant strains encourage a kind adaptation we'd rather not see? Discuss.
