Lee Stranahan watched two presentations yesterday and has an idea: When he introduced articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush last night on the floor of House of Representatives, Dennis Kucinich may have been many things – brave, idealistic, and thorough – but he was also wicked boring. … Contrast that to another speech […]
An artist named Nitrozac is auctioning an original oil painting of Fake Steve himself (not to be confused with the Real Steve). Pretty clever gimmick. I’ll be interested to see the final price. See some of Nitrozac’s other Apple-related paintings. [Via Ebay.ca]
Not sure when this went up, as I didn’t see any buzz when it was announced, but Fake Steve’s forthcoming book Options: The Secret Life of Steve Jobs is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

My tooth has calmed down a bit today. I’m able to get the pain under control with Advil, and it seems to be fading as the hours go by. The endodontist took some x-rays and said nothing looks out of the ordinary, so we’re going to wait a few days before making decision about the […]
…or “When Good Teeth Go Bad.” I have a temporary crown on a bottom left molar. Yesterday it started throbbing. By 2 a.m. it was a red-hot icepick jabbed into my jaw. You know the scene in “Castaway” where Tom Hanks bashes his tooth out with a rock? I was fantasizing about doing that. Handfuls […]
I got a kick out of this creative video from Serge Lipski demonstrating iBlinds: A new generation accessory that interacts with your iPod or iPhone through your window blinds.
