Did I really hear this?

I was on the road today at lunch and, being as TiVo does not make a device for radio yet, I heard a commercial that has me wondering if I actually heard what I think I did. The spot was for D. Geller and Son – the well known and generally despised discount jeweler here [...]

Great new Google toolbar

I find a lot of cool things (and a lot of crap) online, and rarely am I moved to share things with others. This is partly because I really don”t care about the happiness of others, and partly because I don”t want to be the guy passing things around on the Internet that my friends [...]

One of the things I wanted to check out was the new crop of Recruiting Whores he”d lined up [...]

All about the Benjamins

I”m a fanatic about money management. I”m one of those people who keeps track of every penny the wife and I spend, and I manage it all in Microsoft Money (I use NetBank and credit cards that download automatically into Money, so the work is more about analysis than typing in receipt details). Also, I [...]
