Product placement

Well time to get to my other hobby...commenting on stuff. Yesterday I was watching a new show on cbs and I noticed a sad product placement. In case you don't know me I commonly use the term sad to mean pathetic. It was on the new show called moonlight that a woman pulled out a smart phone and took a picture. I didn't realize what phone it was until she showed someone a picture and zoomed in on the picture by placeing her finger on the side of the picture and dragging it to make it bigger..thats right it was a i phone. Product placement is fairly obvious. Its more obvious then it used to be. Another example was when I played a CSI game and found that every usb junk drive was a Sandisk drive,almost every cell phone was Nokia, every bill i examined has visa on it somewhere, and GMC cars seem to be the only vehicle available in Vegas. Its become ridiculous that we must be peppered by this when we have to deal with commercials anyway. Either they should eliminate the commercials and do it like they used to with a show being sponsored by a company or product or quit trying to make us want things when we have already dealt with commercials.

What if..

An interesting way of looking at the i phone and what it could do to apple.

A funny email I recived

Billy Graham was returning
to Charlotte after a
speaking engagement
and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there
to transport him to his home. As he prepared to get
into the limo,
he stopped
and spoke to the driver.

"You know"
he said,
"I am 87 years old
and I have never
driven a limousine.
Would you mind if I
drove it for a while?"

The driver said,

"No problem. Have at it."

Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off
down the highway.
A short distance away
sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap.

The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.

The trooper pulled out
and easily caught the limo

and he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure.

The young trooper walked up to the driver's door
and when the glass
was rolled down,
he was surprised to see
who was driving.

He immediately excused himself and went back to his car
and called his supervisor.

He told the supervisor,
"I know we are supposed
to enforce the law...
But I also know that
important people are
given certain courtesies.
I need to know what
I should do because
I have stopped a
very important person."

The supervisor asked,
"Is it the governor?"

The young trooper said,
"No, he's more important
than that."

The supervisor said,
"Oh, so it's the president."

The young trooper said,
"No, he's even more
important than that."

The supervisor finally asked, "Well then, who is it?"

The young trooper said,

"I think it's Jesus,

because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!"

Starting a Blog

Well here it is..for those who don't know me I'm Samuel..pleased to meet you. For those of you who do know me..I pity you. I always have had a thing for journalism but never wanted to really go professional. Thats when my interest of blogging started. This blog will be a place for me to post links to stuff on the net I find interesting(after all I am a geek) as well as commentaries on various news stories and other things. I never plan to be successful with this thing but I do plan to have fun. I hope you enjoy my blog.
