Dave's not happy Jan!

Dave's not happy about NY hold the US Open while the rest of the country is batteling to recover or help in the the wake of Katrina.

September 11 was an instant event, it destroyed a large complex of buildings and killed thousands of Americans, but it was over quickly, and except for emotional damage, the city went on exactly as it did before. This is so much bigger, it effects so many more people, and its effect will be felt for the indefinite future. New York must stop right now, and reflect on exactly how it can now come to the aid of the rest of the country. It is completely inappropriate for a sport tournament to be going on now, while so many are suffering, while so many are dying.

Serena serves up storm relief

In the paper this morning it say Serena Williams has pledged to donate $US100 ($132) for every ace she serves for the rest of the year to relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

I think that's great, but what would be really amazing if she was to donate the prize money she gets for the rest of the year. Lets face it the prize money they earn is pocket change when compared to the endorsements they get. Might also stop her from buying really expensive ugly Jewellery as well :-P

Even worse Blogger can't spell Blogger

Now this is ridiculous

You'd think Google would know how to spell Google

Ok I know I probably shouldn't be talking (Yes my spelling can be atrocious at times) but you would think Blogger would know how to spell Google.

Google = Toyota, Microsoft & Yahoo = GM

This post over at PBS got me thinking this morning.

Is it just me or does Cringly's description of the big 3 (Microsoft, Yahoo & Google) sound a lot like the battle in the automotive industry. In auto we have big old school manufactures like GM and Ford struggling to keep up with the Likes of Toyota, who can churn out and change there product/production processes very fast.
