@weberwithoneb I hate Bing. Not because it is a MS product, but becase it is annoying to use.

@kevincrossman It looks like it should now be Disney’s Toon California Adventure.

Do I think Apple should be reigned in a bit? Yes, but I like seeing the music industry humbled. http://bit.ly/9sJooe

LOL! Dane Cook’s Idol song was a clusterfuck that had to be cut short because some idiot thought it would be smart to bring out the freaks!

via Twittelator

Wow, even The Hoff made it to the Idol finale! BTW, is it just me or have the back-up singers been awful this season?

via Twittelator

@kevincrossman Really? I like Kris Allen way better than glam boy. Although I do think Crystal should have won, Lee is not a bad winner.

Now, Conan replacing Simon Cowell I could likely deal with. What do you think @ConansSquirrel?

via TweetDeck

They *could* get away with a non-celeb, if and only if, they found someone who could captivate an audience (like Conan replacing Dave)

Shania? <Simon, no - Kara, yes> Diddy? <don’t make me vomit> Perez? <Hahahahahahahahahaha> Sir Elton? <no> A music exec? <no way>

via TweetDeck

I do know this, Kara NEEDS TO GO! She has been AWFUL this season. I need to mute the TV when she speaks! Her babble is inane and worthless!

via TweetDeck

Who should replace Simon? Madonna? <gag> Stern? <a bad joke> Posh? <could have replaced Paula, but not Simon> I need to think on it more.

RT @flyosity And most of those phones running [Android OS] 1.5 & 1.6 can never be upgraded to 2.1 or higher. Built-in obsolescence.

Okay, I have spent major time with Droid. It is good. However, it does not match the iPhone. Like or hate Apple. They got the iPhone right.

I was so excited about the landscape keyboard in iPhone OS 3. Turns out, I never use it.
