Winter Olympics 2010

We got our first TV as a family in 1996, that is right Barb and I did not have a TV for the first thirteen years of our marriage. Funny thing, the Olympics has become an almost exclusively iPhone event for me. I have the Olympics App; "yes, they have an app for that". I check on that medals via that app and I get Lindsey Vonn's Tweets and FB. Still, the TV part of the Olympics is not grabbing me. I blame it on the DVR and on demand programming. I'm recording the events, but I am not going back to watch them. A component of the TV programming that is a bit slow is that it is necessary to build a profile of the athlete for the public so that we really know who we are cheering for. I think more of the human interest thing might be added into the web and more events saved for video. Just an idea. By the way, here are the medal counts. Go team USA!

I really liked the Sock Monkey

My favorite Super Bowl commercial was the sock monkey.



I also liked Betty White. Made me ask, why are those guys playing so rough with Betty White?



Then everyone liked this Google commercial including me.



What was your favorite?
