Find a hobby before you upgrade your iPhone to iOS4

I just upgraded my iPhone 3G to the new OS today. I must admit that the new features (especially the ability to group apps together) is quite nice. I wish I could take advantage of the backgrounds but that doesn’t work for a 3G phone.

The biggest complaint on the entire process is that it took FOREVER to do the upgrade.  It took over 4 hours to do the backups, reflash the ROMs, and then re-sync the apps, movies and songs back to my phone

My biggest advice to anyone that is going to do this upgrade soon – take your time.  Plug it in, get it started, and then go do something else for several hours.

I cannot believe this video of a grown man assaulting a student

A member of the US Congress assaults a student on the sidewalk! I cannot tell the age of the student but if he is under 18 years of age, Mr. Etheridge should be arrested.

This is truly disgusting, regardless of Mr. Etheridge’s apology.

Mr. Etheridge should immediately resign his position.

23 names that you may not know

I picked this up over at CNN. Sorry to those good people for recreating their article here but it was funny and interesting enough for me to republish completely.

You know the characters, but you might not know their full names. Store these away for future trivia nights.

1. Did you know the Comic Book Guy on “The Simpsons” has a name? It’s Jeff Albertson. But that wasn’t the decision of creator Matt Groening.

“I was out of the room when [the writers] named him,” he told MTV in 2007. “In my mind, ‘Louis Lane’ was his name, and he was obsessed and tormented by Lois Lane.”

2. Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. (Ken’s last name is Carson.)

3. Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Captain Horatio Magellan Crunch. His ship is the S.S. Guppy.

4. In the Peanuts comic strip, Peppermint Patty’s real name is Patricia Reichardt

Will Clinton take over as VP?

A recent article on FoxNews suggests that Barack Hussein Obama should drop Vice President Joseph Biden from the ticket in 2012 and put Hillary Clinton in the job instead.

I don’t think she will do it.

She will stay Secretary of State for the balance of the first term. If BHO is re-elected, she will resign shortly into the second term and no one will blame her as the SecState job is brutal.  This will allow her to publish one more book and do the money-raising chicken-dinner circuit.  She will then run in 2016 to succeed BHO, taking credit for thegood that she did as SecState but distancing herself from BHO’s screwups.

If BHO would lose in 2012 , she would be even better positioned for ’16.
