Sprint Palm Pre Site

Sprint has revealed a sub-site for the upcoming Palm Pre phone. No real details on availability, but they do have a form to sign up to be notified when it is available.

They list the basic specs and link to a few reviews/overviews of the phone.

I’m really excited about this phone and can’t wait to see one in person. I’m really interested in the 3 megapixel camera. Supposedly, Palm is doing a lot of processing on the back end to really enhance picture quality.

Lastly, I’ wonder how much Sprint will charge. If they’re smart, they’ll drop this in the $200-$250 range. That should get it in the hands of a lot of users.

Hurley is easily my favorite character on LOST (which is my favorite show), so when I discovered he had a blog, I immediately subscribed.

DispatchesFromTheIsland is less about LOST than it is Jorge’s life on the island of Hawaii. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you should check it out. His writing is personal, engaging and entertaining – all things that make you want to keep reading.

I’ll also blame him for showing me Manbabies.com (see image below). Hilarious and disturbing a sat the same time.

So, thanks for freaking me out Jorge.

gonzo CNN and Mental Floss have a great article about the origins of 20 Muppet characters, detailing where they first appeared and who or what inspired them. I’ve been a fan of the Muppets for as long as I can remember, but there were a lot of things on the list I didn’t know.

Here’s an example:

Gonzo: What exactly is Gonzo? Nobody knows. Even Jim Henson had no particular species in mind. Over the course of "The Muppet Show," "Muppet Babies" and various Muppet movies, Gonzo has been referred to as a "Whatever", a "Weirdo" and an alien. Whatever he is, he first appeared on the scene in 1970’s The Great Santa Claus Switch. His name was Snarl the Cigar Box Frackle. In 1974, he showed up on a TV special for Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. He became Gonzo the Great by the first season of The Muppet Show and developed his thing for Camilla the Chicken almost accidentally: During one episode where chickens were auditioning for the show, puppeteer Dave Goelz ad-libbed, "Don’t call us, we’ll call you… nice legs, though!" It was decided then and there that Gonzo would have a bizarre romantic interest in chickens.
