- The 20 Greatest Political Campaign Ads of All Time, Featuring Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Michael Dukakis, Richard Nixon and More - Nerve.com - Back when I was an undergraduate, a lecturer in media at MIT had a wonderful collection of political commercials on this new-fangled videotape thing.

- Apple hires top IBM chip designer and blade server guru | Latest Apple Computer News - CNET News - A bit hard to see Apple getting seriously back into the server game.

I also like "Others believe that the surge in popularity of the iPhone among lower-income consumers is related more to the decline in price to about $200." Apparently lower-income consumers also can't do math as the per-month fees went up for a net price increase.
