Do you remember the olden days when you had to choose between buying a VHS player or a Betamax player? Both were enormous devices that cost more than a pretty penny when they first came out.

For those who chose Betamax, the gamble reaped little rewards and soon most had to switch over to ... [read more]

Why did they decide to call it New Mexico? It is not like they came up with a newer, better formula like New Coke. Why not just call it North Mexico instead?

This is an excellent time to be shopping for a cruise vacation. The winter holiday crunch is well behind us and the summer busy travel season is still far enough away that the cruise lines and dealers are more than eager to offer you a deal so that they can entice you to float on the ocean on their ships.
Priceline is one of those dealers that are bending over backwards to get you on board. Not literally, because bending the Internet is kind of impossible, but figuratively they sure are. ... [read more]

It would not be surprising if 50 years from now human beings are born with white headphones dangling from their ears. It is only a matter of evolutionary process before the iPod becomes one of our vital bodily organs just like the appendix. The ubiquitous gadgets can be seen on people just about everywhere these days and the reason is simple, they are pretty freakin’ cool.
It is not hard to imagine that an iPod could come in handy on a cruise ship as well. Sometimes you just want to escape ... [read more]
