+ - Hillary's Int'l Incident - Cows, Goats, Camels

Submitted by BanjoBob
BanjoBob (686644) writes "As if Hillary's campaign wasn't having enough trouble combatting Obama, now, her latest campaign stunt of releasing photos of Obama in customary garb has created an international incident where the fine that could be imposed must be paid in cattle, goats or camels! Yes, it can be fun following the campaign. According to the Reuters article, linked above, "They said they would also convene a traditional Somali court to investigate the matter. It can impose fines that are payable in cattle, goats or camels.""

+ - Old DST v. New DST and Old Devices 3

Submitted by BanjoBob
BanjoBob (686644) writes "Just a reminder that some of your VCRs, Off-line TiVos and other appliances with clocks may have the clocks wrong today. Today is the day that the OLD Daylight Savings Time kicked in. However, our government, in their infinite wisdom (and who can't leave anything alone) decided to change it and the change happens next week. So, all your old devices with automatically adjusting clocks may need to be manually set. For that, you can thank the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005. To save energy, U.S. legislators set the stage then for 34 weeks of DST, beginning this year."

+ - Yahoo Downgrades MusicMatch Jukebox

Submitted by BanjoBob
BanjoBob (686644) writes "MusicMatch Jukebox has been a bundle of great MP3 and music management applications in one package. Apparently, it is the end of life for this wonderful MP3 player, ripper, catalog, CD player, Internet radio player, purchase outlet, Auto DJ, Super Tagger and music database. There was nothing not to like about the product. There is nothing to like about the new downgrade Yahoo! Music Jukebox. MusicMatch users are finding that they get upgrade notices to Yahoo! Those who have taken the bait are not pleased. Yahoo! Music Jukebox feedback doesn't have a lot nice to say about the product. Lots of features have gone away and that Free Upgrade costs about $20."

+ - "Hillary 1984" Ushers In New Political Ad

Submitted by BanjoBob
BanjoBob (686644) writes "The news is all over the story today about the video "Hillary 1984" that was released earlier this month. The take off from the award winning 1984 Apple ad that ran during the Super bowl. The impact to the Internet as a formidable political advertising media cannot be overlooked. Will we see more of this type of use of YouTube and the Internet? Absolutely. The precedent has been established."

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
