That's Odd

I just updated my iPod touch with the new 3.0 software. I found a couple of the example pics on Apple's web page that were a bit odd...

When I rotate my iPod to the left, as two of the three iPods are in these examples, my volume buttons are on the bottom and my power button is on the lower left corner.

Look at the upright iPod in the top example. Note the location of the power button (on the top left corner) and volume buttons (left side). Now in your mind rotate it to the left. I wonder who's idea it was to use backwards mirrored images?!

Save the Whales, Kill the Males

I got this email from MINI asking me how many miles I planed on not driving on June 5th in order to do my part to save the world. Well, crap like that is a bunch of hogwash so I though I'd see if I could pledge to not drive zero miles that day (I do have to go to work you know). I figured they would have some kind of filer in there to block their political adversaries.
I'm not the only one who thinks not driving for a day to save the world is a dumb idea:

Mini BofA

So I was logging in to pay some bills and I saw this ad. I just had to share it because it's a MINI Cooper. I wonder if they customized this ad just for me?!

Absolutely Shocked to see this when I check the Fox Sports baseball power rankings today:
Are my Kansas City Royals actually getting respected? Pitching will do that you know...

Easily Amused

I'm still amused that my title, back when I worked for Bank of America, was "Analyst II, Sys. Eng. Arch & Anly." Now I'm just a "Network Svcs Tech Sr." I wonder what the next title will be?
