This is the location of my infamous Tough Guy story. It feels like just yesterday when CJ and I saw the entire thing happen (LULZ)
DWI’s and DUI’s are no joke — you would hope that the UFC’s Golden Boy would know better.
I just wonder if this will affect the amount of press that he gets from the UFC, or if he will be largely silenced by Dana White.
Tough Guy, you’re so vain.
I loved video games as much as the next guy when I was growing up, but this is over-the-top.
Department stores continue to lose ground. They accounted for 10% of retail spending in the 1980s, 5% in 2000 and around 2.5% currently, according to consulting firm Customer Growth Partners.
I do most of my shopping online for a number of different reasons. The selection you can find online is typically much better than you’d ever find in a particular store (or even a mall), not to mention that you can comparison shop once you’ve figured out what you want to buy.
I typically dislike going to showroom style retail stores, namely because of the poor customer service (i.e. Best Buy).
The only downside to purchasing online is not being able to try on clothing/etc, but using sizing charts provided on product pages can work wonders. In the event that something does not fit, I simply return the item for a size that does fit – I always check for a return policy that does not charge a re-stocking fee.
Now that purchasing items online is commonplace for most people, it’s going to be difficult for department stores to get customers to come back to their stores, unless they really begin to *INNOVATE*.

Interesting technology, to say the least.
So the current Apple TV, the little thing, the hockey puck, really doesn’t do anything to help enable you to get Internet material on your TV.
Apparently, the head of Time Warner Cable is completely unaware of AirPlay for the AppleTV.
As someone who uses their AppleTV daily, I have to say that AirPlay is an amazing feature that allows you to stream output from your iOS device onto your television by piping the output to your television.
This works wonders for content providers who do not have native iOS apps on the AppleTV, such as Vimeo, ESPN, and others services.
I’m not sure that Apple has used this as a selling point for their devices, and Glenn Britt’s (and let’s face it, most consumers period) lack of awareness of the technology is a result.
While I don’t wear these too often, they’re still some of my favorites. These shoes are insanely comfortable to play basketball in, but look a little strange with jeans and aren’t in my regular rotation.

Looks like we’re taking it on the chin again. According to this article, an increase of 0.25% to our already astronomically high sales tax is on the ballot in November. I really hope there’s another solution that they’re working through, for the sake of this great state.
