NTSB Recommends Cell Phone Ban For Drivers
We do have too much punishment before the crime. The real point to all of these laws is to stop people from dying somehow, right? So why not just punish the people to do bad things instead of punishing all the law-abiding citizens? I'm sure it sounds selfish, but I like to think I know when and when not to use a cell phone in a car - so don't tell me when I can and cannot use it. I will make sound judgement. But if I screw up, then by all means punish me then.
But then you threw out that DUI comment - wut. That would be just the same. If people can have a 0.08 blood alcohol level and still drive perfectly, then what's the real problem here?
Re: the debt deal reached Sunday night ...
At a time where we spend $3.7tril a year, and only take in $2.2, real spending cuts were necessary. Unfortunately, what happened was a typical Washington accounting trick to generate "cuts" out of thin air. Since they were planning on spending $10tril *more* over the next ten years, now they'll only spend $8 tril *more*, therefore that's a $2tril "cut" in spending.
Yay for political math.
Everyone will be shocked when S&P reduces our credit rating anyway (because nothing really changed) and the economy truly crashes next year. "Bbbbut I thought we fixed it!".

Staying Afloat In a Sea of iPhone Apps
We just got our first app approved, and it took 14 days. But hey, at least it wasn't rejected for some trivial reason like I've read happens to quite a few developers. It does appear somewhat of a black whole where you just wait and wait after rushing and staying up nights to finish - feels very anticlimactic once it's finally approved because you've waited so long. I'm not looking forward to pushing the next update and telling users to "just wait". Shameless plug: XPilot
Of childhood "building" toys, my favorite is ...
Lego bricks were most popular, by far, but THANK YOU for mentioning Girder and Panel! I loved those things but had completely forgotten them. I had a pretty severe flashback reading that in your post.
Erector set FTW - any toy that can rust and cut you is superior.
