Dell's Digital Jukebox - Not Ready for Primetime

I couldn't agree more with Tom's conclusion on this device. Why should we pay money to test products for companies? After reading this, I'd certainly take a pass. Still waiting for the perfect device before I cough up hard earned dollars. Ipod is close, but $$$. Too few players support books, so they are out. (Ipod does).

Switching to the Political Front, the Democrats debate tonight at 7 p.m. EST on MSNBC for you cable/satellite folks. Should start to get interesting now as candidates need to sharpen up the differences between themselves. I'd personally rather hear more about their ideas than simply the same ol' "kick Bush out" routine. How am I going to pick one, if they all say the same thing?

Wonder if the Israeli/Palistinean issue will ever move forward? Noticed today that Israel released some 400 Arabs in exchange for 4 Israeli soldiers. Of course this had to marred by a "freedom fighter" killing 10 innocent hospital workers on a city bus as revenge for Israeli soldiers killing 10 Palistineans the day before. (I still have a hard time with the word "freedom fighter" when they kill innocents, but then Israelis haven't exactly been selective when it comes to moving in and stomping on these little refugee towns). These two countries just have the wrong 2 leaders in charge to ever achieve peace, but I don't know what it's gonna take to remove them and move ahead. I sure wouldn't want to be a civilian in that neck of the woods - worse than being a soldier.
