Obama is not giving up his Blackberry
without a fight
When a new president comes to the White House the security forces that be expect the
prez to surrender his/her email accounts and cell phones. This does not sit well with
president-elect Barack Obama who, according to his interview with Barbara Walters,
is looking for a workaround to this recent security practice so he can hold onto his preferred
method of communication, his Blackberry. Obama claims his strategy of executive transparency is going to be hindered by silencing his communication and says "one of the worst things I can
think that can happen to a president is losing touch with the struggles that people
are going through every day."
...and losing my Blackberry. Gizmondo



iPhone ads banned in UK for false advertising
The British Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has banned another UK ad for the
iPhone that focuses on the phone's data speed. The ad (as ads usually do) show a
drastically faster iPhone 3G downloading at speeds even wifi userswon't see.
Apple most likely will continue to find new abilties for their popular phone. pcpro.co.uk



YouTube goes widescreen

The people have spoken and YouTube has responded. "We're expanding the width of the page to
960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them,"
the release from the internet video site said. "This new, wider player is in a widescreen aspect
ratio which we hope willprovide you with a cleaner, more powerful viewing experience."
Standard ratio videos will still be available and be groaned at
in the years to come. Long live the widescreen. cbc.ca

Digital TV Switchover Heads Up

http://www.copelandbc.gov.uk/Copeland/images/digit_al.gif
A bill passed in the U.S. Senate last week that would require some broadcasters to offer an information
screen to viewers for 30 days after the February 17 deadline. The measure must still pass the House of
Representatives before it becomes law. But even if it does become law, Jones said that not every broadcaster
would be able to continue broadcasting the message over its analog channel, because as of that date, new
spectrum holders will have access to those airwaves. Instead, he has been encouraging viewers not to wait
until the deadline to test their digital TV readiness.

But hey if you have cable or sat box your A-OK!

Man says God ordered him to ram vehicle at 100 mph

 

NFL Denver Broncos host Oakland Raiders

 

SAN ANTONIO – A man who rammed his truck into a woman's vehicle on a highway early Friday

told authorities he crashed into her while going more than 100 mph because God told him "she needed to

be taken off the road." The truck rear-ended the car on U.S. Highway 281, both vehicles spun across a

median then came to a stop along a barrier in the opposite lanes. Both drivers suffered only minor injuries.

"He just said God said she wasn't driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road," Bexar County

Sheriff's Office spokesman Kyle Coleman said in the online edition of the San Antonio Express-News.

"God must have been with them, 'cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal."

The pickup driver did not tell police how the woman was driving. Police could not find alcohol or drugs in

either driver.

A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered for a man.

Blow-up doll causes bomb scare


Visitors Gather in Dallas on Anniversary of JFK Assassination.

HALMSTED, Sweden, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Police say a blow-up doll left by men after a stag party
triggered a bomb scare in Halmstad, Sweden.

The doll, found bound and gagged, apparently was jettisoned by the partygoers as they left a

bar, the Swedish news agency TT reported Sunday. Police evacuated a restaurant and cordoned

off the area while bomb technicians investigated the scene, TT reported, noting the area was

reopened an hour later once police determined the doll posed no threat.
