Automated Restaurant

http://www.geekologie.com/2007/08/wolds_first_automated_restaura.php

Today must be the day of childhood dreams for me. Follow the above link to read about a near-completely automated restaurant. I can remember my brother and I drawing such things on the backs of bulletins during church as children. Between praying profusely and such. It's like Sheetz, but the food rolls from kitchens above right to your table!!

At the rate my childhood dreams are coming true it won't be long before Alex Mack proposes to me, and there's a touch screen iPod running OSX and likely featuring WIFI capabilities announced. What's that? OMFG!

Amazing



I didn't even know how to title this blog it's so amazing. 3-D Monitor? Hologram? You decide. I've seriously been waiting for this invention since I was 10.

Jennya McJamethy

Well, I'm glad to see that the object of at least one of my childhood fantasies is still really hot. Like smoking hot. I submit for your perusal a link to some pics of Jenny McCarthy of 90's MTV fame in a bikini. Wow. Just wow. And the obvious polar opposite of someone keeping their hotness would be Jenna Jameson. Yeah, she looks real bad. She's supposedly not doing porn anymore. I'm guessing that's because no one WANTS to do a porn with her anymore. Way to go out on top, as it were, Jenna.

Maybe Jenny would be offended that I'm even comparing these two, but let's face it, they both took their clothes off for money. Not that I look down on them for that. I'd do just about anything for a cool, clean $5 bill. One time I attacked a bear cub while covered in honey not 10 feet from it's mother for 5 bucks. Only the cub was more of a human child, and the mother was more of a great-grandmother, and the honey was - well I don't remember why I was covered in honey.

The point is, ladies, sell it while it looks good, because cases like Jenna are much more common than cases like Jenny.

iAnnoyed

Just a quick rant about this whole "i" everything...

Remember in the late 90's when everything was "X". Generation X, X-Games, etc. I wonder who decided the progression should go from "X" to "i". Either way, it was kind of fun for a while (I do own an iMac, and iPod, and an iHome) but I really hoped the whole thing would go away soon. Unfortunately Google's personal homepage was recently renamed iGoogle, and with the onslaught of the iPhone, I don't think the end of this iCrap is in iSight.

Apple Envy




Sigh, and so my Apple envy continues. It amazes me how I can look at a product I bought (like my iMac) with such awe and pride, and within a few months quietly and slowly reject it for not being as sleek and wonderful as the new model. This is the first sign of a problem people. I'm aware of it.

Have I mentioned I hate and love Steve Jobs? Because I do. He's like a shoe salesman that makes really cool shows that lots of people want. He retains all of his annoying salesmanship, even when the product is good enough that it doesn't need a mega-salesman to sell it. Notice how many times he tells you in his address yesterday how wonderful, useful, amazing, simple everything is. It's to be expected to some degree when selling a product, but I think he goes overboard to the point where I start to say, "this salesman might be full of crap". The product is awesome, just tone down the salesman. He's also an arrogant ass. Some would say he has the right to be. I wouldn't say anyone does. For example:

"Somebody asked me, you guys are so far ahead of everyone else, why are you obsoleting your own products?" (quoted by Engaget)

My paraphrase:
"Somebody was blowing me the other day, and they said, dude, you're so much more awesome than everyone else. Why awesome-ify yourself further when already your awesomeness is so much more awesome than everyone else's lack of awesome! [slurp slurp slurp]"

And yet, who wouldn't love to have all of Jobs' jobs. From Pixar to Apple. I just feel like I would handle it all with less douche-itude. But maybe a Douche is what it takes to run such companies.

Ok, I've made up enough words for one blog.
