Lesson 1 the purpose of a cologne is not to cover your bad smell, thats what a good shower soap and deodorant is for.
Lesson 2 Less is More, do not spray your cologne 2 or 3 or 4 times trust me its fine with 1 spray.
Lesson 3 Cologne is for your neck and wrists do not go spraying other parts of your body.
Lesson 4 Axe is not a cologne company.
Lesson 5 Cologne used to be just for royalty, so understand this is not something petty.

If only Jacques-Yves Cousteau had a Sony TX5, or better yet if only Christopher Columbus had a TX5 he would have realized after a few shots at sea that he was headed tothe island of Trinidad instead of America. Now forget history for a second but take Boris, Boris loves to go snorkeling. On one of his trips to the bermuda triangle he ventures off the charts and finds a mysterious cave with all kind of booty. He quickly pulls out his Sony Cybershot TX-5 and starts snapping. uses the touch screen controls underwater to delete any confusing photos. and heads back to the boat. He goes down for a second dive but never finds the entrance to the cave. He heads back to ship he plugs in his TX5 into his macbook and instantly he sees exactly where every photo was taken. Instantly he realized he went left and not right after the hill and Boris makes a fortune.
Sleek, stylish, and tough aren’t words that normally describe the same product, but they’re certainly applicable to the Sony Cyber-shot TX5 ($350). The TX5 offers many of the same features found in the company’s flagship TX7 compact — including an Exmor R CMOS sensor, Sweep Panorama mode, HD videorecording (720p, instead of the TX7′s 1080i), a touchscreen LCD, 10fps shooting, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization — but packs them into a rugged body that’s dust proof, waterproof to 10 feet, and shockproof to 5 feet.
It’s called Streetline and it’s the most amazing innovation that will work great on youriPhone. The concept is simple, the startup Streetline placed detectors in every parking spot in the San Fransisco port area and connected them to each other as well as to the park-o-meters. Then they push all this data to customers through an iPhone app.
All-in-all, it lets you check out where there are available parking spots before you go anywhere, and it will remotely charge or recharge the meter from your iPhone.
Now someone tell Steve Jobs thats what i call Magic!
While we all anticipated the iPad and finally it came true last week, I can’t stop feeling disappointed. In the past when Apple was asked if they are making a iPhone nano the answer was “we’re not looking to make cheap products we’re looking to make the best products”. With that being said the iPad should have been the Best Tablet out there, above and beyond the competition when in essence its a really big iPhone Lacking a few features. Now i know what your thinking this thing is super cool! and this writer has clearly lost it. You can imagine yourself using one of these magical 10″ iPads in the train or on a plane and of course your going to try to read some books on there, the NY Times app looks like the future of Newspapers especially if you can download the whole paper and take it with you when you can’t have service or want to save battery. Oh and the price can’t be matched Apple hit the price we all wished for and never imagined would be possible $499 and an optional 3G internet service for $15 and $30 BUT lets talk about why its a huge disappointment.
Let’s talk about that price point $499 that price was just to magical, so magical it caused apple to cut out some key features which left this iPad as a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Now I’m not saying i don’t think its cool or “magical” but at the end of the day if i want something Magical I’m going to Disney, and if i want something powerful I’m going to Apple. with that said i will now stop venting and let you know what’s missing from this Magical Device.
No Front Facing Camera: iChat
No Multi Tasking: With all the magic in the iPad you could only run 1 app at a time. With such a big screen : how cool if it could splint into 4 iphone screens tiled!
No Widgets: 0 Widgets! there should be some way that i can take iPhone apps and use them like widgets
No USB Ports: There is 1 but its solely to import images!
Network Jack: if they can get one on a Macbook air i want one on here, hardwired internet is so much faster than wireless LAN
Flash: are you kidding there is no flash support still!!!
