Happy Turkey day to everyone.

Early birthday present to myself…Day and Age, the new Killers album.  $3.99 on Amazon. Can’t beat that with a stick.

1970 Coke Can

I picked up a coke can like this one at an antiques store today, although mine is a little more rusty and tattered. This was the first coke can to have the famous coke ribbon on it, made in 1970.

Macbook me

Somebody please buy me a new macbook for my birthday.  I’m turning 29.  Please….you can all chip in if you want to.  It doesn’t even have to be a pro (although that would be preferable).

Not sure I understand this aluminum thing though…yeah, machining something out of a solid block of aluminum produces, theoretically, a more solid, robust part with a better finish.  But not really…and it can just as easily be machined from a cast part for about 1/10th the cost.  (I could make a pretty sturdy house out of a giant block of aluminum too, but it would run me about 14 trillion dollars.)   13 machining processes for one part is a ton of waste from a manufacturing point of view. Not sure how they’re convincing the accounting department to pay for this (yes I do…it’s why the macbook is $1299 instead of $1099) , and I don’t know why they’re boasting about this…I think the folks at Toyota would be fired for even thinking about suggesting this.  But on the other hand, if they are keeping the cost about the same, or only slightly higher, for a much better product I guess it’s reasonable.  And I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look awesome.  Check out the video if you haven’t already.
