HOT NEW PRODUCTS [from virgin megastore]
CHRISTMAS in silicon valley is not only a great time to pass people up it’s a time and place to have fun and avoid the same people. My quick take on top high tech toys took me to the virgin mega store and not much further.
A uwink review. Now that¡¦s worth the trip to mountainview. I saw a large slick east coast style decor prices high to low entries $5.95 tp $21.95 happy hour drinks $4. food was fairly good and the video games were a lot of fun. Did I say it was large – - very large. Right across the street from the mountainview city entertainment complex.
This is not to be confused with great cuisine such as the great holiday fare from the great chefs of silicon valley. – - the ¡§valleylist¡¨ list. Also highly recommended because it¡¦s a great value for holiday entertaining which is something that almost everybody must deal with.
NEWS NEEDS TO BE NEW (sm) “valleylist” gets results. the list of results itself is much more interesting than the endless battle with the anti-people in san jose and elsewhere that continue to insist that someday it¡¦ll be legal to __________________ [you fill in the blank].
the latest encounter with yahoo led to the conclusion that the anti-people approach has spread around. My objective is a vain glorious effort to have yahoo provide all needed services for the new and improved “valleylist” i contacted yahoo about a yahoo newsreader or aggregator service similar to the infamous google reader only to find that nope there is no yahoo reader – - instead it’s a list of readers and aggregators – - Yahoo! Directory: RSS News Aggregators - – so it’s back to the drawing board on the concept of seamless service from yahoo.
it’s been difficult however it’s the real yahoo as opposed to the microsoft version of yahoo that everybody is still getting behind. hiring cable pioneer frank biondi of hbo and viacom fame is a real step in the right direction. my criticism has been too much hoopla and very little new product direction.

on the san jose ¡§hostage¡¨ side of things it obvious – - after 46+ versions of “valleylist” i still cannot get a deal with the city of san jose or local business leaders or politicians. they are all afraid of the good old gang and their bizarre political ideas which include the infamous “nothing is going to happen until i get what i want.” i’ll probably spend the next year at the labor commission arguing every week because chuck reed and rob davis do not understand that their ¡§hood¡¨ experiment is a failure. It will never be legal to steal from people. also people are very unhappy and complaining. the anti-business posture is pure idiocy not to mention the infamous gang mentality “you need to be an idiot to even talk to me in the first place” .
these are the same people who came up with ¡§in the future it’ll cost you everything you have to talk to the hood¡¨ as well as ¡§if it doesn’t work get to the hospital¡¨ which obviously means their promised solution is not going to work so just ¡§get to the hospital¡¨ . most of us were taken in for a while by the research project titled ¡§someday it’ll be legal¡¨ .
coincidentally there¡¦s the police graduation friday San Jose Civic Auditorium .
i repeat – - still no deal. It is obviously unbelievable.
MAYOR OF THE WEEK george bush needs no holiday pick me up having pole vaulted over more damaging incidents than an innocent shoe toss at a press conference. most important to bush this week is ¡§no to terrorism¡¨ – - Bush says ‘no debate’ about his keeping US safe - – and of course it’s Bush who is famous for no compromise
with these two thoughts from the good people it’s possible to conceive of a bush power sweep that never included the most horrifying economic crisis in the last 150 years. that’s the bush i recall as well as the bush machine that put their muscle behind their party’s candidate – - the infamous p.o.w. survivor john mcain and his group – - as opposed to a wild swing through an alternate universe where the unthinkable did occur. the washington gang lost to the democrats in a decisive slam. it’s impossible to take away any credit from obama and his team however for really wanting to take the win and demonstrating what it takes to work hard and win big. this week’s avatar is jeb bush paying bills in front of the bush mansion – - just in case there are people out there who think that the bush legacy is over with, think again. britain’s gordon brown joined bush in announcing a real withdrawal from iraq finally – - End of honourable or pointless Iraq war: press - – meanwhile left to their own devices the russians under putin are considering a return to the good old days of the real reign of terror – - Russian treason bill could target Kremlin critics .

LET’S MOVE THE FOOD AROUND this is the zaney new idea for getting out of trouble and meeting new people and making money in a brand new way. it’s the fun of finding ways to send the food to the food people. they then get it to those who need it. here’s my “let’s move the food around” list of people
it’s a “valleylist” project that’s more than charity and less than a virtual world war.
