Sad Mac

Steve Jobs passed away today, and the world mourns.

I am usually not one to be sad for someone I never met, and don't know personally, but today I am writing this with a heavy heart as I believe Mr. Jobs to be one of the most amazing people on the planet.

Like so many others he has changed my life in so many ways that it would simple take too long to list them here. My first computer was a Mac, that my mom-an avid Mac lover-bought me in 2000 for Christmas and my home coming from a year in Australia.

Amanda Knox, My Thoughts

My interest faded quickly as my own life was in a constant state of chaos with the WGA strike and work uncertain. I soon forgot all about Amanda Knox and Meredith Kercher.

For the past four years I have heard stories about it and until last week, I was 100% convinced that Amanda had some part in the killing of her roommate.

My conclusions were based on this:
The way she reacted after, the fact that she lied so many times, the way she reacted, and the media, and the way she reacted...my dad always said, believe NONE of what you hear and HALF of what you see.

I believed what was said about her and I know better so for that I am ashamed.

First off all, who can say how someone is going to react when they find their roommate dead? Especially after a night of &…
