Google, you’ve made the world a better place over the past 9 years but, I must say, you’re getting a little too full of yourself these days and it’s really kind of annoying. So this year I’m giving you a small, handheld mirror. How far away do you have to hold it in order to see your whole face? Know how lucky you are GOOG, stop pulling stupid shit like the Moffett Field stunt. Try and look around you — that is, if the moon does not obscure the view — and remember to give back. You’re already in bed with the likes of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights and the Committee on the Judiciary. Will they re-write or scrap SOX before or after they hand you the spectrum of your dreams? Oh yeah, and stocks with near-$200B market caps. don’t just go up forever, you know. DoubleClick on that. Oh, and keep up the good work. Love, netZoo.
With less than one week left in the regular season and the Cubs magic number at 4, I’m ready to talk playoffs. While the 2007 National League playoff race is still Cubs fans like myself, with potential opponents including Arizona, San Diego, and *gulp* a potential World Series showdown vs. Anaheim.
I DID get in around 9:09, BUT — after selecting my seats and beginning the checkout it said my seats were no longer on hold…. perhaps I should have gone ahead with the trans instead of returning to the ticket screen, because this only returned me to the virtual waiting room!!! Argggh!
Perhaps I’ll get lucky should the Cubs advance to the NLCS. Go Cubs!
