Here is a remixed trailer for the for the film Tron. It is much more exciting than the original 1982 trailer. If the original Tron were re-released with this new remixed trailer it may actually do really well at the box office. Never underestimate the power of a good trailer. Via BoingBoing.

Original trailer:

The first dot-com domain was registered by Symbolics, Inc. on March 15, 1985. Symbolics, Inc. was a computer manufacturer that created machines that ran the LISP programming language and was in operation until July, 2005. After that a privately held company bought its intellectual property and assets and continues to operate under the name Symbolics but using the symbolics-dks.com domain name. The new Symbolics company sold the symbolics.com domain name to a domain name investment broker called xf.com in August, 2007.

Happy anniversary to dot-coms everywhere!

Coffee Inhaler

I always knew that man’s innovation and ingenuity would lead us to this point in human evolution. This coffee inhaler is perfect for those that need the caffeine without the time to drink a cup of coffee.

Each “whiffer” costs $3 and can get up to nine hits from an individual stick, depending on how hard the user inhales. “Coffee good to the last puff!” Thank you.

The guys from the Gadling‘s Travel Talk show spent one day in San Francisco and hit a few highlights. Clearly it is impossible to see all of San Francisco in only 24 hours, but they do have good tips if you only have one day. The most important of which is to stay away from tourist traps like Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz. Check it out.

My brother’s friends from Tampa visited me in San Francisco yesterday and we had lunch at the Osha Thai location near my office. After that we had Peet’s Coffee and hung out at Yerba Buena Gardens for a few minutes before they went to SFMOMA. Here’s a photo of all of us in front of Osha Thai. Good times.
