Ahahahahahahah. Aaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahah. No, seriously. Lol. Why am I so hysterical this morning, you ask? It just so happens that I spent yesterday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium watching my beloved Chiefs find yet another way to lose a game. It was a thrilling first half, to be sure, but they went cold late in the game. And how’s this for an analogy of the day’s outcome- the mild sixty degree Sunday morning fell to twenty-three by the end of the game before plunging to a frosty nine last night. So clearly there are more powerful forces at work. Someone does not want Herm Edwards and Carl Peterson running this team. But I digress.
Well, MacWorld 2009 is fast approaching with little more than a few murmurs of new releases. Is there a smaller, cheaper, Nano-er iPhone in development? And if so, why wait until after the holidays to announce it? Steve, Oh Captain my Captain, you must have a plan. In the meantime, though, there’s plenty of shiny new MacBooks and MacBook Pros to buy up before the 25th. So go at it.

Well well well. So much to talk about this week. Congratulations to Senator Obama and all of you who voted for Change. And, as his first act as President Elect, he’s cracking down on one of the greatest problems our great nation faces: baggy pants. So keep those britches up, chilluns.
And, in a stunning display of athletic prowess, the Chiefs lost again! Actually, for the first time in a season and a half, I respect Herm’s decision to go for the win in the waning seconds of the game. At least he changed his strategy of just laying down to die. Well done, sir. Maybe next week you be able to improve to .250.
In other news, Apple released it’s fiscal review for 2008. Sales of MacBooks and MacBook Pros, as well as the Mac Pro, have made significant leaps forward, according to SEC Filings. Not surprisingly, the iPhone is breaking records for sales momentum in the smart phone market. Perhaps more surprising, according to the data, software sales jumped from a mere $1.50 in 2007 to $2.2 billion in 2008. Someone’s getting a promotion.
Ok, everybody. Take care, and have a good two weeks- I’ll be in Hawaii next week, so you’ll have to do without me for a while. But trust me, I’ll be thinking about you while I’m on the beach. Mahallo.

Suckers. Made you look. Even Steve Jobs doesn’t have that much influence. Yet.
Just when you thought it was time for winter, surprise! It’s 75 degrees here at the Q again. Looks like I bought my SUPER FAMILY SIZE tub of Swiss Miss a little too early. Eh. I’ll swig it down anyway, and get chocolatey marshmallows all over my beard. And my wife will point and laugh, per usual.
Speaking of improved video chipsets, Apple’s gone ahead and upgraded the MacBook Air to the NVIDIA set like the rest of its Portable siblings. Advanced graphics performance all around. Huzzah! In sadder Apple news, it looks as if the Mac Mini, beloved by few and under-appreciated by the masses, is on its way out. So those of you who, like me, never thought it was such a bad little machine, pour one out for your tiny fallen homies. My 1.66GHz Core Duo is running strong for nearly three years now, and I’m not giving up just yet. Just try and make me.
Ok, ok. I’m ranting with even less restraint than usual, and I didn’t even talk about how Herm Edwards and Carl Peterson are the worst coach/GM combo in the NFL. And I won’t, because we don’t need more complaints about a team leader with vague ideas of success and little evidence of execution. Or about an old guy who’s lost touch with how the league works and doesn’t want let go of the reigns. No, really- I’m talking about football.
Until next week, kids. And don’t forget to do something important tomorrow.
