• iPhone! $1,000! Unlocked! Nikon lens!

    Get over to Alibaba because they’ve got all kinds of unlocked iPhones 3G for your purchasing pleasure.

  • Craigslist Locks Down Site With Phone Verification

    Craigslist has long had problems with spam. The one feature that has made the site a success, the ease at which one can post, has become a hindrance as spammers and law breakers have taken over. In early March Craigslist began what is now turning out to be an incredibly effective anti-spam campaign by using phone verification on posts. In an initial effort to rid their “erotic… Read More

    Straight from a blog in a far away land, it appears that HTC has released the “Victor” (looks like in Taiwan only) which appears to be the HTC Touch Diamond, except with a flat back instead of diamond-bumpy, jagged-edge back found on the company’s current model. To that, I say “Hoo-ray!” I’m using the Touch Diamond right now and the back doesn’t cause… Read More

  • After breakup, man spends $1,000 a week on beer

    Reuters is reporting that an Australian man recently convicted of his 7th drunk driving charge revealed that he’d been spending around $1,000 per week on beer.

Live in the now! Read More
