Mail needs a killer app

segment: 

We hate every mail app we try using. They are always too simple or too complicated — none are just right.

Google mail is way too ugly and complex. The only thing that makes it any good is the search function, DUH. Apple's mail which should be easy peasy, super simple might be if you only have one e-mail account. It's search is pathetic. Maybe it's all super pathetic because we use Google mail services with Apple Mail? 

There has to be something better. Yep we hate webmail the most.

What are you using?

Good riddance, Steve Ballmer.

Google cuts losses, sells Motorola

segment:

Google thought it could thwart Apple with purchased patents, that didn't work. Google lost a ton of money on Motorola and now they are selling it off to Lenovo. You know Lenovo, they bought the IBM Thinkpad. Oh right and their devices run Windows.

Ugly Olympic Sweaters by Ralph Lauren

US Olympic wear

Why do I feel that these uniforms would be in a Saturday Night Live sketch. The more people you gather dressed like this the worse it gets. It's the ugly sweater movement. It's embarrassing don't you think?
