It seems that Dell, the anti-Apple, has created an EV-DO ExpressCard. Of course, this probably won’t include Mac drivers, so MacBook Pro users will have to wait until some aspiring hacker creates OS X drivers.

Have you ever wondered what to do with your iPod when someone approaches you? If you have, than there’s good news for you: New York magazine has a section called “The Four Levels of iPod Interaction : Whom you do and don’t have to unplug for” as part of their Urban Etiquette Handbook.
Yes, such things do exist. Check out “Google Your Race: Racial Profiling with Google” to see the what the number one racial stereotypes on the Internet are. my favorite falls under “Middle Easterners are known for…”:

Lollapalooza is a big music festival held every year. This year, they have something called Last Band Standing, in which people vote online for amateur bands/individuals, the winning of whom will be the opening act at Lollapalooza. Why am I saying this? Because my cousin, Scott Thomas, is in this competition. Here’s what you can do: go to lollapalooza.com, click on Last Band Standing, under States go to IL, and click on Scott Thomas. Listen to his song, vote, and, every day for the rest of June, vote (put it on your Google Calendar or do some other kind of reminder).
Here’s a roundup of some strange and not at all related events that occurred today on June 18, 2006:
- Fathers Day
- My Mom’s 50th Birthday
- Paul McCartney’s 64th Birthday (”Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64…”)
- Anniversary of Communist Dictator of North Korea Kim Jong Il first joining the Communist Party.
Hey guys, I know it’s been about a month now since my last post, and I’m sorry for not posting more frequently. There’s a lot of stuff on my plate, such as blogging on MacUser, writing for TeenSpeak Online, and managing my normal life. But graduation is days away, which means much more free time for personal blogging. Right now, I’m just going to post some quick updates on stuff that’s happened and what’s going to come.
For those of you that don’t know, about two months ago I was hit by a car. I’m OK now, all I have are two small scars on my face that didn’t even need to be stitched up. It happened on a quiet side street in Manhattan and yes, I was jaywalking.
I just wanted to remind everybody that the majority of my blogging goes into MacUser, so if you’re into Macs, check it out.
Also, I am a staff writer on the website TeenSpeak Online, which is news and editorials for teens by teens. My first and only article, Why Bush can’t be impeached, is still on the front page. Also, I will going to a discussion at the United Nations on Friday, which will be pretty cool.
As for what’s coming on the blog next, expect reviews of the play Awake and Sing (which I saw the day it won the Tony), the movie Bee Season, and the book Kavalier and Clay. Also, I’ll be posting coverage of my summer vacation to London, Rome, and Israel in August, and I’ll try to put up cool things I find online and elsewhere whenever I have the chance.
