iMac HP or Sony?
I want to get a new computer. Want. I just recently upgraded my 'old PC' (circa June 2003) to 1gig of RAM and it is working better. It's been a very versatile desktop and it's been used as everything from a word processing/internet machine to a sound and video studio and a television ... How have I made it so long on 512?
iWant a new shiny; iWant a new toy.
My options at this point seem to be the Sony VAIO LS25E, the HP IQ770, and the iMac. (I'm even considering the Sony Digital Living Systems.)
I've been a PC guy my whole life ... and though I don't look like the guy from the commercials, I'm starting to feel a little iEnvy. Yesterday I saw the iPhone for the first time ... and though I have a phone that has robust features, it was really cool. I don't need a new phone. The last time I bought a new phone it turned out to be a real headache (maybe later). Anyhow. I'm not getting an iPhone (maybe later).
That brings me back to the computer problem. I have a VAIO and love it. It's been great and has lasted a while, all things considered. But I am moving my VAIO (or the new VAIO XL1, 2 or 3) to the living room and want (want) a new desktop.
The Sony has gotten ok reviews. It doesn't inspire me to buy it ... it's an average computer with a great, compact look.
Today, after actually and finally touching the HPIQ770, I was very impressed. The touch screen was fun to use, was very interactive and gives a different experience.
But the iMac looks better than both of those, performs better, is more impenetrable, has great (and affordable) software, clean, intuitive, etc. BUT ... no TV Tuner (still, Jobs?).
However, after months of perusing MacRumors, AppleInsider, etc., Apple is obviously coming out with a new (or updated) iMac within the next two months. Will Apple put out a new computer weeks before their new Operating System? Apparently they will.
Most of the rumors about the next iMac revolve around look. Brushed Aluminum, Red, thinner, sleeker, new keyboard, etc.
So. Obviously I'm not going to buy anything until I see what Jobs does. Here's a prediction:
iPhone-like touch screen for the iMac ...
if that happens, screw the TV Tuner. iWant it.

Though I doubt anyone was wondering, I was away on vacation for the last two weeks ... which would explain the lack of words on this blog. I was away for a total of thirteen days which would amount to the longest vacation I've had since I graduated college. That vacation was roughly two years.
A lot of things happened while I was away... more than I was expecting. I don't have time to catch "all y'all" up because, well, I was the one on vacation and I have thousands of emails to catch up on ...
thanks for visiting.

Top 20 Financial Blogs
Via Micropersuasion, Douglas A. McIntyre compiled a list of the Twenty Best Financial Blogs. At first glance, most of these blogs and bloggers seem to have found a niche. Some don't post often enough (who am I to say, right?). However, for PR and IR Agencies, this list is invaluable.
I've taken the time to create a Netvibes Module and have published it. It's free and an easy way to quickly glance at each day's (or week's) top blog topics.
I suppose since I had all of the sites open (in Mozilla, otherwise it would have been ugly) I could have done a lot more with it ... maybe someone else can pick up where I left off ...
One last thing ... there was only one blogger who didn't have an RSS or Atom feed set up with Blogspot. Get to it! http://microcapspeculator.blogspot.com/
This site didn't have a feed yet either, http://www.thestockmasters.com/ , what gives?

I know this is a shitty thing to do ... reacclimating myself to this blog with a viral video. HOWEVER, if you take the time to view the video, you will be astonished. This is, by far, one of the coolest music video ever created (next to (and a little bit in front of) Fatboy Slim's with Christopher Walken, the Weezer's Buddy Holly, every Peter Gabriel video (especially Steam and Sledgehammer ), Genesis' Land of Confusion, and Radiohead's video for Just).
What are your favorites?
