http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/people/b/john_m_broder/index.html?match=any&query=oil&submit.x=14&submit.y=11&submit=Search This does show that he has written over 418 of his 1877 total articles with the word 'oil' in it. Most of his articles I scanned through deal with piplines and climate changes. No real history of automotive reviews. I wonder why he decided to do a review of the Tesla, or he was picked to do the review?

Maybe HTC fancies making its own OnLive box with some extra home-cooked features - Apple TV with games anyone?

OnLive already sells this $99 box. http://www.onlive.com/game-system I bought one during their CES promotion for $66. Worth it. I don't own a gaming console above my ps2, and my "gaming" pc is pretty old. (more than 4 years) This purchase has allowed me to play high res new games on my 50" plasma. I like it. However their service really needs a broader spectrum of games.

Here are a few ways lifehacker has posted about new options to keychains; http://lifehacker.com/349647/diy-compact-keychain - Pop rivet your keys together, only helpful if you have less than 5 keys or so. http://lifehacker.com/399031/diy-leatherman-key-mod - Might work better with a pocket knife and no blades. Again limited to the number of keys.

Japan Holds Annual Baby Crying Contest 4

Posted by samzenpus

Do you love to hear crying babies but wish you could somehow mix in some Sumo wrestler with each wail? Then the annual Naki Sumo (crying baby contest) in Japan might be for you. From the article: "Eager mothers bring the babies to the event where Sumo wrestlers and high priests are on hand to coax babies into a maddened state of wailing. The event, which marks the high point of spring, is held each year at the Sensoji Temple in Tokyo. The baby to cry loudest and longest wins the contest. The competition is also intended to generate good health for the babies. This year Sumo wrestlers coaxed 80 babies, all less than a year old, to cry.
