Happy Birthday to Me!

  • Yes, it's my birthday so I can cry if I want to, cry if I want to.
  • Not much blogging or surfing today.  Heading to SF in a bit.
  • I won the March Madness office pool when Gonzaga lost.  So there.
  • And the winner is... Nintendo's Wii!  I think because it's more of a hit with the general population.  The XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 (PS3) are impressive, but have they changed gaming dramatically?  Not really, just better pictures, speed, and in-depth gameplay.  All impressive.  But what about Fun?  Are those consoles more Fun than their previous versions?  Hmm.  Wii's controller did it for Nintendo.  But don't worry, the other gamers will do it, too.
  • What would a monday blog entry be without Carrie Ann Inaba?  Yes, Dancing with the Stars is on tonight!  She's got your foxtrot right there, baby.
  • CNBC saying that golfing mania is dying. Yeah, I agree.  But the culprit may be things that tap disposible income.  Think about it.  A round of golf isn't cheap.  And when gasoline costs more and your monthly utility bill costs more, cuts have to come from somewhere.  So maybe folks are golfing less.  
  • Maybe folks are just golfing on their Nintendo Wii's. 
  • Uh oh, Japanese kids becoming obese"There's a worldwide trend toward more weight problems in children, and Japan is no exception, as it has taken up habits more like the West." 
  • Stephen Collins of Seven Heaven a celebrity CNBC trader in first place?
