With my easy system you can make $1,000,000 in 3 days. How? First borrow $1,000,000,000 from someone. Then invest it in something bearing 12.25% interest. In 3 days you will have $1,000,000. Then simply return the original $1,000,000,000. You're now a millionaire! That was easy right? Now, where do I find someone that wants to lend me 1billion dollars?...
Official Google Blog: Beyond Instant results: Instant Previews
By now you've probably experienced the coolness of Google Instant, it searches for things as you type rather than waiting till you hit enter. Now Google has added a feature which enables you to quickly preview a page before you go there. Normally what I used to do was right click each search result I'm interested in and open it in a new tab, then research them all. Now I can narrow down my options more by clicking the magnifying glass and seeing the preview of the website. Obviously, it's pretty small so you'll still have to go to the website to read anything, but it gives you a good overview of the layout of the site in question. I'm glad the preview doesn't pop up automatically just by hovering your mouse over the link. I've experienced that with some websites and it is rather annoying; while you're trying to read one link or headline you move your mouse so you can read it, then a preview pops up and blocks what you were originally reading. Google's instant preview can be turned on by clicking once on the magnifying glass and once more to turn it off so you decide whether or not you want the preview there. Also it's on the far right side of the screen so it doesn't get in your way of reading the other links. Thanks Google for all your innovation.

Today for lunch while eating my usual chicken and cheddar sandwich I watched an episode of The Simpsons online. My favorite shows currently airing are The Office, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Big Bang(full episodes aren't available on their website unfortunately) and Outsourced, which I recently discovered. I've watched all available episodes of these shows online and like to watch something while eating. I haven't seen The Simpsons in a while, but I wasn't disappointed especially when they surprised me with a special guest appearance by Bret and Jemaine of Flight of the Conchords and their delightful folk melodies. If you need some meal-time entertainment check out the first episode of season 22 here:
The Amazon Kindle is now down to $139. That is a really great deal. I believe it used to be $400 when it came out. That's like the discount that gaming systems go through, start high, then come down to about one third what they used to be. I have yet to use one myself, but they look cool when people use them on the train. When you get older and teeth fall out or get pulled out do you get better presents from the Tooth Fairy? I got my wisdom tooth pulled last Friday so maybe if I put it under my pillow she'll bring me a Kindle this year...ok, probably not.
