This is for all the real Americans who are tired of douche bags talking crap on our women, our waistline, and way of life.
This is a reminder to the the ungrateful freeloaders who benefit tremendously from the global “public goods” we so selflessly provide with our time, effort, blood and treasure. How easily — and conveniently — they forget . . . unless they need help, of course.
But let us never forget, especially today, that despite the name-calling, the cialis generica jeers, the petty jealousies, we’re the envy of the world — and rightfully so.
The fact is that no matter what anyone says: No country has given so much to so many so often — while asking for so little in return — for so little gratitude than this great country of ours America! Stand tall and proud — you’ve earned it.

“Hey Jerry, shut the fuck up you douche!”
“The PSP2 is already in the hands of developers, but will Sony take the right direction in the portable sector? Following a recent op-ed on fixing the PSP business, leading game industry analysts came to the consensus that the best avenue for Sony to take is to offer a PlayStation Phone, and a strong partner like Google would do just the trick. ‘Sony has the opportunity to redefine the portable games category. I think the best move would be to get out in front of Microsoft’s inevitable Xbox LIVE Arcade Mobile and take on street value of cialis the App Store and carrier deck portals. … They could put out a proper PlayStation Phone (and a PlayStation Pad) but these should compete with smartphones and tablets, not dedicated gaming devices. To do this quickly, Sony could partner with Google and take advantage of Android’s considerable momentum,’ said Billy Pidgeon of M2 Research.”
Doomsday: October 12th 2010
“A small asteroid will pass very close to Earth this Tuesday. Astronomers are still tracking the object, now designated as 2010 TD54, and various estimates say it should come within anywhere from 52,000 km (33,000 miles) to 64,000 km (40,000 miles) on October 12, with closest approach at approximately 11:25 UT.”
ATT U-Verse Comes to Xbox 360
U-verse subscribers soon gaining the ability to use an Xbox 360 as a set-top box: “A so-called Wired Release will roll out to AT&T U-verse customers next Sunday, and it’ll bring the long awaited feature with it (though you’ll have to wait until November 7th for that particular aspect). This means an AT&T U-verse customer’s Xbox 360 will have a Dashboard app, and when launched, it’ll let it function exactly like any other U-verse set-top. The only major catch is that it can’t be the only set-top â?” you’ll need at least one DVR at another TV in the house to enjoy one of the four HD streams that could be funneled into your home.”
Google Cancels Free 411
After three years of providing free directory assistance in exchange for voice samples, Google has announced plans to shut down the GOOG-411 service, in order to focus on ‘speech-enabling the next generation of Google products and services across a multitude of languages.’ The service will close on November 12th.”

Twitter To Start Selling Followers
“While not quite as bad as it sounds, Twitter will soon be identifying followers with certain interests based on the content of their Twitter usage, and then providing this info to advertisers. Twitter is already selling sponsored Tweets for $100K or more. These reader comments captured the disquieting feeling I have: ‘Twitter selling followers? Will that be the same as Google selling top position in SERP?’ and ‘I wonder when Facebook will start to sell friends.’ Advertisers will be allowed to purchase placement in lists of ‘who to follow’ recommendations targeted to users with particular interests on Twitter.”
66% of All Windows Users Still Use Windows XP
“Almost one year after the introduction of Windows 7 it appears that the hype surrounding it has faded. The overall market share of Windows has turned into a slight decline again. Windows 7 is gaining share, but cannot keep pace with the loss of Windows XP and Vista. Especially Windows XP users seem to be happy with what they have and appear to be rather resistant to Microsoft’s pitches that it is time to upgrade to Windows 7.”
Google TV News
HBO, Netflix, Pandora and the NBA are just a few of the big-name brands teaming up with Google for the rollout of Google TV.
The web giant’s “multimillion-channel TV” system is expected to launch some time this fall. Run by Google’s Android operating system, it will let users view all kinds of Web content on their televisions.
*Facebook and Skype: Lovers?
According to All Things D’s Kara Swisher, Facebook and Skype are about to announce a partnership that includes “integration of SMS, voice chat and Facebook Connect.”
It’s not clear exactly what this deal would entail, but possibilities include Facebook Chat over a browser to cell phones, and video chat among Facebook friends.
