NBA Draft Lottery Tonight

Posted by Mike on May 22, 2007

I just want to go on record. If New Orleans wins tonight’s NBA Draft lottery, it is rigged. Go Celtics!

UPDATE: Celtics get the fifth pick. Damn. The first pick goes to . . . Portland.

WiFi High Five!

Posted by Ryan on May 22, 2007

Finally, there’s a report out there that claims the technology I use every day is NOT going to kill me in a hundred different ways!  Yet another British study was done to test the problems of modern technology, this time questioning the methodology of the studies used to claim that we’re all gonna die from cell phones and wi-fi.  While cell phones still might be evil, wi-fi Internet connections (like the ones I’m using to write this post) pose a considerably smaller risk of harmful radiation exposure than my cell phone does.  In fact, one study suggested that sitting in a wi-fi hotspot for a year equals about the same radiation exposure as 20 minutes on a cell phone!  If I had a wi-fi router implanted in my hand, I’d still be more likely to get cancer from moderate cell phone use.  Let’s just wait and see what the next study has to say–these things keep changing.
