    i think their musicianship improved. I heard some hot modest mouse guitar licks in there.

    i don't know. I put on the new one, and then it just kind of reminds me to listen to deja entendu.

    i really liked ben kweller when sha sha came out. It really was one of those high school albums. BUt man his last two albums have been beyond disappointing. The new one i could barely get through. except for this is war, that was a goodie

    Windbag Murphy Dumping on the Sox

    i'm glad this was a thread, i was driving from home to missouri today and took a break from music for 2 hours, i first heard "all white sox talk" and then it was the dumbest opinions, person after person, that i'd heard in a long time. Since mike north.

    Films

    well, i don't really know what you were expecting then. and also,recently i gave domino the prize of being the worst directed major movie of all time. I don't think its story gives it worst of all time but it is also bad. I think at one point i counted 21 cuts in 25 seconds. IT is the most obnoxious thing i've ever seen. It gives me motion sickness. Ugh, i think i only continued watching because it was on HBO and because i wanted to see what else i could laugh at. Tony scott is f***ing awful. This is the same reason i hated man on fire. The man couldn't do an extended take if you threatened to cut his finger off.

    correction, yeah its flash drive. I heard something about flash memory but it didn't stick with me that it was like the nanos. he didn't even mention it in the keynote which is what confused me. but...anyways, i think capturing 1% will be fairly easy.

    QUOTE(BobDylan @ Jan 10, 2007 -> 11:19 PM) I was actually making a valid question. Aside from HD failure, is it going to be easy to transfer all of your information when newer models come out? Most phones have a SIM card or something equal. This makes it easy. Does Apple plan to sync devices with the computer so you can store and transfer information? Do I have to continually back up my phone numbers in case of a crash (something you never have to do with other phones unless you flat out break it)? And other questions, I didn't watch the video, but how does e-mail work? Where's the keyboard? Does it have a touchscreen keyboard? Are the keys small? Does it support pop3? Further questions, the Sidekick, thought I hate it, can use flash cards. With the technology and size progressing like mad on these, why did Apple choose to go with a HD instead of something as small, cheap and compatible as a flash card? They can only hold 2 gigs as of now, yes, but the size will only continue to grow and will allow the consumer to make their own choice. While music collections continue to grow, I'd say a good 99% of my friends aren't anywhere CLOSE to even 4 gigs of music. If you want to know why I hate Apple, bmags, it's because Apple won't let me make my own decisions. it has an area for sim cards, it obviously synchs up with your computer, you can put word files on your iPod, of course you can synch up your phone and put contacts stored in your computer on your phone. All this is explained in the video. a phone like this has 4 gbs for a lot more than music. iPhone has OSX working on the iPhone. HD allows for the most possiblities works on flash memory, i don't know what pop3 is, but watch the video for the keyboard, its worth it. More than that, the gross majority of ipod crashes are due to user error, my friends treat their ipods like utter crap and are suprised when they don't last past the one year warranty. The two that treat them nicely have 3rd gen ipods and before that had their first gens for 3 years. upgraded after the battery life went below satisfactory. the only major criticism you can make on this phone is battery life, and i suppose the possibility of spyware.

    QUOTE(RockRaines @ Jan 10, 2007 -> 10:48 PM) well it doesnt work like a blackberry. It doesnt work the same way with your exchange server and really isnt ideal for the working environment. Blackberrys do one thing very well, and thats email and outlook sync. This wouldnt really play in the same field, it is geared more towards people who use yahoo email and do not need to send upwards of 50 a day. Its more of a consumer product. I would have this in addition to my blackberry. i. c. bobdylan, we get it, you think that the ipods are inferior...blah blah.

    now, i would never need this for, well through college, but in my mind, if i was in the market for a blackberry, why would i not pay 50 extra bucks for this?
  20. i have a short life with no one really to tell me what sox history was like before i consciously was cheering on the sox. I honestly think the best and worst moments I felt in 05, where i finally knew we had a contender, where before it all just felt, well, kinda like the 01 bears. (even in 2000 before i knew what the 01 bears were) Best: JD's walk off against the angels because i was there, (timo's walkoff basehit was pretty funny too) but prolly being in missouri my freshman year, watching mlbTV thanks to a soxtalk hookup, and having my nails in my face, until joe crede hit that walkoff against the indians. Of course the next two games were scary and gut dropping, but man that was ELATION as a fan, the first real time i felt that before the playoff victories. Worst: the losing streak in august. I felt like it would all go to hell. and it got WORSE but man, until we faced KC i was scared. And when cleve got to 1.5, i still felt better than during that long losing streak. also, for best, in 2000 when we went to Yankee stadium and swept them in four, and then swept cleveland, oh man that was great.

    Bullpen

    a great tug of war of people saying being proven in the bullpen means nothing and then people the very next post saying our bullpen is unproven. Well last year, our unproven guys were the best and our proven guys were awful save jenks. This year thornton could very well suck the pooch.

    its funny, i remember there was a video about the widescreen, touchscreen ipod on youtube, and then everyone laughed because they just took two black ipods and overlapped the screen. it turns out that it looked exactly like the widescreen phone. i'm sure that there will be another announcement in time for...is it panther? that will also introduce the new ipods. i have to say, they should be sure they have at least 15 hours of battery life for just music then. and, i think the reason they only released appleTV and iphone was that it is placing apple in two new medias, while their new OSX and ipods would just be furthuring their own technology.

    "proven" means very little in the bullpen, imo.
