A Lion Victory!

You die-hard Lions fans (both of you) naturally recognize the headline as the final words of the Detroit Lions' fight song. My beloved Lions got off the schneid today by beating the Minnesota Vikings at the Pontiac Silverdome. And there was much rejoicing. The only question is: what is Jay Leno going to do for material now? Not that I really care . . . I prefer Letterman.

J.t.Qbe comments: There is much rejoicing in Michigan too. Especially among those of us who have had to live in Minnesota for the last 6 years--the Lions haven't been able to beat anyone this season, but they beat the Vikings! I don't care for football, but this made me happy.

What's Next for Palm?

For some, it seems like PalmOS PDAs are doomed to be crushed by the monolith that is Microsoft and their PocketPCs. Jeff Kirvin thinks it doesn't have to be that way. Check out his article entitled Dance With The Girl That Brung Ya. In it he makes some compelling arguments on how PalmOS devices can survive, yes even thrive, without making a direct assault on Redmond. I've always felt this way, but he states things more clearly than I could.

J.t.Qbe comments: This article brings up some very good points. I hope that Palm does keep its focus as it moves ahead. Not everyone wants a full PC (with its cost and its Windows) in his pocket--if my Visor doesn't do what I need to do, I probably need to go sit at my PC anyway.
