Hey folks. You all know what I’m going to say, so I’ll keep it brief. Tomorrow we’re going to find out what Apple can deliver for $799. Tablet? Newton 2.0? Or maybe the “Brick” hint means they’re bringing back the Wallstreet. All 25 glorious pounds of it. Everybody keep an eye on MacRumors for all the juicy details. And the October MacBook/MacBook Pro LCD coupon is still running, so head on over to Food for the Hungry and get to sponsoring some kids!
Until next week, peaces.

This is the last time I’m going to ask, but I hope it resonates. Why does Herm Edwards still have a job? I know Gunther Cunningham, the Chief’s Defensive Coordinator, didn’t look very good yesterday after his squad let the Panthers run up thirty-four unanswered points on them, but what can you expect from a defense that’s on the field for forty minutes of a game? I can almost hear Bill Cowher’s footsteps in the hall outside the locker room.
In Apple news, not much happened over the weekend. Oh- except Steve Jobs DID NOT have a heart attack according to an Apple spokesman and the slight dip in their stock does not mean Jobs is dead. So you can stop worrying and put the rumors to rest.
Now it’s time for my pop-culture pick of the week. John McKenna, former front man for the Kansas City band Red Guitar just released a solo album and, unlike most singer/songwriters that divorce their bands, McKenna’s new record has a totally refreshing sound that’s not just a one-man reboot of the same song craft. Stone Cold Summer captures all the melodic simplicity and perfect hooks of 1960s California surf-pop, with some pretty haunting vocal and instrumental elements and earnest, poetic lyrics. You can download the album for free at Noisetrade.com. Do it. Now. And check out some of the other great artists at Noisetrade while you’re at it.
Finally, here’s a reminder to go to Food for the Hungry and consider sponsoring a child in a third-world or developing country. Email me (email@example.com) the ID number of a child you sponsored in the month of October for $50 off your next MacBook or MacBook Pro LCD repair. Godspeed, friends. Until next week. And go White Sox.

Well, Ok. Maybe not. But Google’s news about about the premier of the G1 is big nonetheless. For those of you who missed the announcement last week, the G1 is the first portable device to rival the iPhone in terms of ease of use and software integration. First impressions seem to focus on two key differences from Apple’s market incumbent. First, the G1 is considerably larger. Second, you can get your hands on one for only $179, with contract. That is, as long as you use T-Mobile.
Ok, enough about the G1. We’ll see how it performs over the next few months- if anyone can break into the market, it’s Google. I wanted to extend last week’s coupon for the next month. If you missed my last post, here’s the deal. I’m taking $50 off your next MacBook or MacBook Pro LCD repair if you sponsor a child through Food for the Hungry; there are kids in the sixteen different countries where FH’s Child Sponsorship Program is operating that need food, medicine and school supplies, and your $32 a month can meet that need. Just go to fh.org and pick a kid. Email his or her ID number to firstname.lastname@example.org in the month of October for $50 off your next LCD repair. Thanks, everybody.
