I know this is just one of those stupid examples where a company (eBay in this case) buys every keyword in Google Adwords that they can come up with, but it’s still kind of funny…
Someone pointed out something kind of funny/ironic… Since the MPAA decided to sue me, they have actually made my blog a few times more popular than their own site (mpaa.org). If you look look at the Alexa graph below, the green line is the old URL for this blog, the blue line is the new URL (when I switched over to my own domain) and the red line is the MPAA’s website.
The orange arrow coincides with the day I first heard about the lawsuit (and posted about it).
The odd thing is it actually looks like their site is getting less traffic over time (not a good direction to go). Maybe they would like to buy some advertising space on my blog for their anti-piracy propaganda? Hey, you never know… it could happen!
I got a letter in the mail today that Hummer has put a 100,000 mile warranty on all 2007 vehicles. That’s cool… especially considering it was 36,000 miles before. I just got a free 64,000 mile extension on my warranty.
The experiment involved for the first time a macroscopic atomic object containing thousands of billions of atoms. They also teleported the information a distance of half a meter but believe it can be extended further.
“Teleportation between two single atoms had been done two years ago by two teams but this was done at a distance of a fraction of a millimeter,” Polzik, of the Danish National Research Foundation Center for Quantum Optics, explained.
“Our method allows teleportation to be taken over longer distances because it involves light as the carrier of entanglement,” he added.
Quantum entanglement involves entwining two or more particles without physical contact.
WTF is going on here? The Chargers lost on Sunday, and now the Padres lost today to the Cardinals in the first post season game of the year for them.
Oh well, whatever… it was an awesome day in San Diego, and we had awesome seats for the game (4th row, next to 3rd base).
