Apple - Bunch of Filthy Liars

Is it petty of me to enjoy seeing Apple caught in a scandalous pickle? TechCrunch reports how Apple lied to the FCC about blocking the Google Voice app. This just makes them look jealous and sneaky. Awww, Apple fanboys will now have to admit that there's a blemish on their golden savior. Kool Aid not tasting so good?

Sorry, I must sound absolutely terrible rooting for Apple to fail. Nah, who we kiddin'? :-)

Translationparty.com's Zazzle integration

Last week I posted about Translationparty, a fun site that translates an English phrase into Japanese, back to English, back to Japanese, etc. until hilarity ensues.

Well this week we find out that they added a Zazzle API integration all on their own! After you enter your phrase and the site does it's translations, you can buy a t-shirt, mug, or other products, with the final phrase on it! Cool!

Here's an example...when entering the phrase "What would this look like on a t-shirt?", the final translation becomes "In this case, tshirt?"

Jenny Craig: Week Thirty Results

Wow, thirty weeks of Jenny Craig. This week I dropped 1.2 pounds for a total of 36.2. This was more than I expected for this week :-)

My average per week is 1.2 pounds. Slow and steady. They say taking it off slow makes it easier to keep off. Here's hoping!

Jenny Craig: Week Twenty Nine Results

Down 0.4 pounds this week, even after "cheating" on Saturday. Of course, I was up 0.6 last week, so I'm still making up for it :-) Total = 35 even.

Let's have a Translation Party!

1. Enter a phrase in English
2. The phrase gets translated into Japanese, back to English, back to Japanese, etc...until the translations reach equilibrium and match.
3. Hilarity ensues.


Jenny Craig: Week Twenty Eight Results

Well, after tailgating before a concert, with some yummy food I might add, I'm up 0.6 pounds. And this coming week isn't looking too promising, but heck...I'm still down around 35 pounds, so as long as I can make it up, I'm good.

It's ok to fall off the wagon every now and then...keeps me on my toes. I have to learn to simply keep a balance in what I eat. If I go up a bit, I'll take it back off.
