Ok, I know I told Ginny that I wasn’t going to get an IPod (after she got her IPod mini as an early birthday present) … but this IPod Nano looks pretty cool.
I had thought about getting an IPod Shuffle at one point … but I didn’t like the idea of not being able to control the song that is playing. This new entry in the IPod family looks like a good cross between the mini & the shuffle.
Of course $250 is a bit much to spend on a MP3 player … but who knows. Maybe the price will drop soon. 🙂

Ok, pretty cool.
I’m online as ‘fallingrock’ if anyone cares to chat.
Found a new online service that looks pretty cool.
It’s called GVisit. It uses Google Maps to track where people, who visit your website, are coming from.

This is extraordiarily cool … even if they think that our house is about a block south of where it really is.
NASA has put together a rather impressive flash presentation on the Space Shuttle’s return to flight.
They even have Scott Bakula, on the bridge of the Enterprise, doing intros.
Pretty darn cool.
This is pretty handy …

Google to unveil desktop search | CNET News.com
[Google] has created Google Desktop Search, a thin-client application that lets people retrieve e-mail, Microsoft Office documents, AOL chat logs and a history of Web pages previously viewed, all via a Web browser.
This sounds kind of cool. I’ll be interested to see what they do with it.
A while ago Alta-vista (I think) created something similar … but it never took off.
I am a big fan of hardwood … I like the feel, look, even the smell, of items made out of quality wood. Wood floors, tables, shelves, etc.
I saw a link to Swedx on the Google ad’s for one of my other blog posts.
You can get LCD monitors, USB mice, and USB keyboards all made out of hardwood.
They are kind of pricey … but very nice looking.
