I had a good time heading out to “Heroes aren’t Hard to Find” for free comic book day, even if the weather wasn’t cooperating. It was fun, got some free books (missed the Family Guy one!) and bought a few titles I hadn’t seen in a while….and I consider this an educational trip for my son.

Wow…has it been that long? I think it is time for an upgrade. I have been thinking long and hard about changing the site up from just a blog to something more. I will do something this week! Don’t know what it is…but I will do something.
The interface and look to the Google Notebook has gotten a very nice upgrade. It has a more 3D-ish look to it now. Functionally, I don’t know if they changed anything else, but I like it.
* Update * : You can export a notebook to Google Docs.
If you don’t know what the Onion is…then you don’t know what the Onion is….or something like that.
Anyway…if you like people making fun of the news…Check out the new video podcast called the Onion News Network. You can subscribe in iTunes too.
Also a recommendation…subscribe to the Onion Radio News also. If you aren’t listening to it, you are missing out.

Robert Cringely asks why there is a hard drive in the new Apple TV. I don’t see the big confusion…I believe it is for downloadable content such as Movies/TV shows from iTunes and/or podcasts (Audio or Video). Now, his Peer 2 Peer theory is interesting…but I think unlikely. I wouldn’t want a Peer 2 Peer box in my house.

The new Apple TV media extender is supposed to ship this month, perhaps even by the time you read this column, and if you are like me you are wondering what that 40-gig hard drive is doing inside. I’m guessing we won’t know for sure until later this year, though of course I also think I know the secret answer, too.
I didn’t have much of a doubt that it would, but this is fantastic news non-the-less.
