The Scream Stolen!

Above is the picture of a tourist at the scene of the armed, daytime robbery. Oh wait, I think that's the picture itself.

Ok, Craigslist was not for sale. The final word.

The Craig of Craigslist stopped by to set the record straight. As he wrote in the comments in the post below:

we're not for sale, just a former employee sold some equity, which was only supposed to have symbolic value

I guess you can't get much more of a final word than the man himself.

Craigslist is not for sale. Oh wait, I guess it was.

A few weeks ago I reported that if you wanted to buy Craigslist, you were out of luck. Apparently I was wrong as ebay just bought a stake in it. I'm a huge fan of both CL and ebay (and a stockholder in the latter) so I'm pretty psyched about this all around.

Gimmick or improvement?

I have to admit when I first about Gillette's M3Power Mach3 razor, I was skeptical at best. This is the system with a tiny vibrator in the handle that you turn on while shaving. Well I finally broke down and purchased one last weekend. Hey, I gots to know!! Anyway, I must report that I really liked it. The idea of the whole thing vibrating while you shave for some reason just feels right. Is it really shaving any better than a regular Mach3 with a new blade? I am not sure but the experience of the M3Power is really nice. It feels great that it's buzzing and it seems to be cleaner and easier. Am I imagining it? Possibly but I am no so sure. I shaved quicker than usual and no cuts. Stay tuned or try one out yourself. Bzzzzzzz.

From Chris....

Bill Gates has said that he would love to buy Nintendo if he could. Here are some amazing photoshops of what would the gaming world have been like if Microsoft owned Nintendo.

One of Chris' favorites is the "dead linux penguin".

Material Behind New U.S. Alert Is Years Old

Much of the information obtained from al Qaeda that led the United States to raise terror alerts in Washington and New York was at least three years old but a top U.S. official said on Tuesday it remained relevant.

In other news, the Bush Administration warned Hawaii about a impending attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.
