Jerry Seinfeld Is Going to Be a Celebrity Pitchman for Microsoft, Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Looks like Microsoft is pulling out the big guns in it's war against Apple... Fox News is reporting that Jerry Seinfeld has been brought in to appear in upcoming Microsoft ads. Looks like Microsoft is serious about stopping any market share shrinkage. I wonder if the ad agency working for Microsoft is the same agency working for Vandelay Industries.  I can see it now... Apple hires Newman (actor Wayne Knight) to make a cameo appearance in the Mac vs PC ads!  I wonder who Elaine would find more sponge-worthy, Mac or PC???  :-)

Have a day. :-|

Chewed USB Cable Doubles as a Thumbdrive!

I think I need to either follow the directions to make one of these or buy one when they become available. Check out this picture of what I'm talking about.

It's a USB thumbdrive inserted into the end of a USB cable that looks like the dog got a hold of it. Quite funny actually... use it in front of people and they'll wonder just where that data transfer is going!
