My wife got the new Sidekick II as her present to herself this year. I must admit: it's nice. It's got a nicer keyboard, nicer controls and a decent camera. It also includes support for Yahoo! Messenger as well as AOL Instant Messenger right out of the box.
Another small video of some interest: Bridging San Francisco Bay, an industrial film created by U.S. Steel Co. to crow about the construction of the Bay Bridge between Oakland and San Francisco. The construction of a replacement span between Yerba Buena island and the Oakland shore is currently underway: it is interesting to see how bridge building has changed since those earlier times. The key difference: safety gear.
Welcome to 2005! Hope everyone has had a pleasant holiday and is ready to get back to the serious work that we all have: namely surfing the web and listening to my brainwagon radio podcasts. 🙂 We are back to traditional brainwagon blue, no more christmas decorations.
I'm still a couple of days away from getting my new podcast setup finalized, but rest assured, I should be back shortly with new episodes, better quality, but the same old ranting that you've come to expect.
Hope everyone is safe and happy.
