A dual core computer in a USB thumb drive? Awesome.
In all of the realignment over the past year, only one non-BCS FBS conference has not lost a (full member) team: the MAC. Only two full members have left the conference in the last fifty years (and one of them came back). Stuff like this is why.
This is old news, I guess, but I found Angus Jones’s comments about Two and a Half Men (which he sorta retracted) to be… well… accurate. But it’s entertaining filth. Anyhow, I don’t know that his apology will help him. The fact that they already replaced a key cast member might have, though. But if things don’t work out, Kirk Cameron needs costars.
Last week I spoke approvingly of federal university. The UN is launching a global university. Given that in a number of parts of the world a college degree is much more than a credential, I wish them luck.
Singapore is the most emotionless country in the world. Another reason why what works over there cannot likely be imported here.
The Washington Post is planning a paywall. I think this is a mistake. They aren’t the New York Times or Wall Street Journal. Their only competitive advantage, to my eyeballs, is that they are free.

Ebooks have apparently really taken off in China.
