Before I get to the Blackberry, I’d like to direct your attention to the new blue box over there on the right. I’ve written before about how terrific Last.fm is. It basically records all the music I listen to and spits back charts of [...]

I know, I know. It’s childish. I’m a 36 year old man who still gets a kick out of headlines about Yankees pitcher Chien-Ming Wang. You just KNOW that whoever is writing the headlines at ESPN.com is rubbing his hands together every five days when [...]
