off topic, yes.
It might be funny for a team to sign them both, but never play them on the same line.

I'd take the Sedin brothers. They are UFA's after this season.

iPhone OS 3.0 blew me away today.

Push notifications, Cut and Paste, MMS, Turn-by-Turn, landscape keyboard in apps, Email and SMS, more calendar integration with google and yahoo, new searchlight homepage (swipe left from home to get search page that can launch apps and find emails, texts and calendar entries.

Holy WOW.

Not out until Summer unfortunately.

They need to re-do pretty much every app in existence so it will actually work with the new software.

Sorry my bad.

Push notification can be worked into like all apps or something, so SDK need to be seeded out to developers and stuff.

But this update will be huge.

And this is why the World Baseball Classic will never grow in America. A do or die game against Puerto Rico tonight, with the loser being eliminated and the winner going on to the semi-finals, and the game is on ****ing ESPN Deportes. Are you serious. Biggest game for the United States and its not even on ESPN. Theres no college basketball on tonight, so why not show it. What a gong show

I don't really know where to ***** about the college education system and the way businesses hire so hell, ill do it here. What is the point of going to college in todays world? Honestly, its not just the "economy" that is putting a damper on recent graduates, its the businesses that we have dreamed about working for, the reason we went to college.

Currently, I'm a graduate from Temple University with a BBA in Marketing and a MIS Minor and 3.4 GPA. I attended weekly AMA (American Marketing Association) and worked part-time as an Assistant Manager. What did all of this hard work earn me? A "marketing job" that was delivered as so. Two months on the job and I'm officially a telemarketer. Hell, I most likely have called your business asking if you need any construction work done.

Ok ok, so you might want to blame me for a "poor decision" in finding a job. I have been on the search for over 6 months and this is the only job that has salary + commision that is needed to pay my loans. Every single job opening requires 3+ years of experience in MARKETING yet there is no way to get an entry-level marketing job.

See the problem here? How are recent graduates supposed to get experience when no business will accept an entry-level employee. I guess I'm just angry at the world for going to college when I should have just been a plumber or HVAC person and made triple the $$$ with 1/2 the hours.

That just ticked off 11 mins of my work day which is nice to see because in between watching the clock tick and drinking water just to piss to make the time go buy wasn't working any longer.

**** the business world and **** the system. Don't go to college for business students, be a plumber.

The End. JSTAFF out

This part really stands out to me:




I love my ipod nano "fatty," but it's crap like this that makes me want to stop and just pick up a sansa clip or zune.
Personally, I agreed it SUCKS, but it's an $80 shuffle, who the hell cares about buying new headphones for it?

I could care less, I'm no Apple fanboy, but I might make the switch to mac. I agree they are not perfect, but an $80 shuffle is not going to change the world, or my opinion.

Waa waa.

Got mono?



Yeah man, **** sucks right now. I wish I had some money to get back in school. I can't decide to go back for Bio or Psyc. (I can do either one easily). Until then I'm doing data entry in a law firm essentially.

Oh well, cant win them all. Keep working at it Jev and it will get better. What were your original plans that you wanted to do with your marketing degree?

Haha poor guy. I have a marketing degree from Pitt and a minor in stats. I graduated 3.25 in 3 1/2 years. I used to do HVAC work in the summers in highschool and college. I found a job after 2 weeks of graduation doing consulting work (supply chain, procurement) for fortune 1000 companies and PE firms. You just need connections. I had the same problems as you. You really need to just know people. That is how it works, especially for marketing.

Bryan Little now has 30 goals. He's doing a great job of proving that the "sophomore slump" is just superstition.

I've liked that kid for years. But I honestly didn't expect him to get 30 goals. I figured he'd top out at 20-25.

A good portion of them came when Kovalchuk was gone too.
