Today in Vaporware News

In the coolest vaporware news today, Sony’s new concept notebooks with a clear screen and all slick black keyboard while the computer is turned off, is fully holographic when turned on and from the pictures look just slightly thicker than the DVD, that may or may not fit in the notebook without connecting it to a docking station.

Whatever the details really are with this notebook, we don’t know when it is coming out and it will probably be wallet blisteringly expensive.

Holy Second Avenue Subway, Batman!

Thanks to Engadget for revealing this story, pic provided by Daily Speculations.

Never mind building a Second Avenue subway line, the MTA has approved a deal to eventually provide full cell phone coverage to, at first, 6 subway stations in the next two years and then the rest of the stations, 6 years from now.

It looks like the cell coverage will only blanket the stations themselves, keeping the underground tunnels free from cell traffic so that daily commuters don’t end up murdering every annoying talker they are stuck with on a filled subway car at 7am.

Yankees vs. Red Sox Rivalry

Thanks to The Feed for the above pic.

Who who would have thought at the end of May, that the most exciting (or nerve wracking, depending on your point of view) story in baseball this season, would be the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry? At their lowest point in the season, the Yankees were 14.5 games behind the high flying Red Sox. The Red Sox have been the number one team in the Majors all season long, maintaining the best record in baseball for almost the ENTIRE season!

These two teams just finished off their season series with the Yankees eeking out the advantage, winning 10 of the 18 games these two faced off.

Now, with just under two weeks left in the season, the Yankees have surged to within 1.5 games of that former 14.5 game lead! Both teams have their Ace starters vying for a 20-win season, Boston’s Josh Beckett has two games left and is sitting on 19 wins, while New York’s Chien-Ming Wang also has two games to pitch and has 18 wins.

It looks like again this year, both of these teams will make the postseason, the question now is who will win the division and who will get the wild card.

Both teams have today off, so I can relax, at least for a little while from this whirlwind, but it will all start up again tomorrow.
