It's supposed to be one vote, right?

Found this video over at Digg.

It shows the Texas State Legislature hard at work voting on bills. Nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing underhanded going on here. Just business as usual.

In fact, unless you are against elected officials stealing votes to get laws passed is not only illegal, but immoral as well then there's no reason to even click the play button.

To be honest, I'm just glad that they aren't letting any votes go to waste.

1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.

2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.

I don't think the majority of the United States fully appreciates the irony of our situation.

What the new iPod Touch needs.

After several hours of just looking at the new Apple iPod Touch on the internet I have come to the conclusion that while the iPod Touch is a giant leap forward, it still could use a little improvement.

First and foremost, the iPod Touch needs a phone.

That's right, a phone.

Apple really messed up on this one. How hard could it have been to just slap a decent cell phone to the back of this thing?

Just imagine being able to listen to music, watch video, surf the net and voice calls all wrapped together into one gorgeous device. Hell, while they're at it, throw in Mail and YouTube. That my friends would be the very definition of innovation.

And think about all the telcos that line up to be the official carrier for this "Apple iPhone". There's got to be millions of dollars in a deal like that.

Now, Apple can keep its head in the sand and keep denying that people would kill for this UberPhone and I'll watch from the sidelines as Apple goes down in flames.

As turns out, at least Nokia is listening to consumers.

That's right, fucking Nokia.
