    Does anyone know the status of the film, Dragon Warrior that was to use a virtual version of Bruce Lee? The last references I can find are dated from 2001 and pointed to a 2004 release. Lee's widow, Linda, and daughter, Shannon, gave permission to use his likeness. Story here...

    Experiences with Progressive car insurance?

    My wife and I recently added another car to our policy with Allstate. I am relatively happy with the premium, but out of curiosity I did an online price comparison through Progressive.

    Jersey Girl

    The trailer is up and is very different from what I was expecting. I was afraid of another Ben & Jen disaster, but this looks to have very little Jen Does she die giving birth? and more of a Ben the struggling single father. Can you imagine having George Carlin as your grandfather? It seems to...

    Interactive, floating display technology

    I agree that it may be hard to think of non-technical uses for this technology in the near future, but it may hold promise. The inventor states that any plug-and-paly device, like a computer or television, can serve as the source for the display. Here is the article, free NY Times...

    http://qpon.quiznos.com/ The coupon seems to renew itself every day for a two-day window (e.g. today's coupon is good through 12/10). Quiznos is usually too expensive for me to justify, but I have been enjoying this deal for a week now. No need to sign up, but I did in case they send me...

    XIII: Anyone play it yet?

    IGN gave it a disappointing 7.7. I was looking forward to this game. The last game I bought was Splinter Cell, and I am thinking of one or tow games to get for Christmas vacation. Manhunt and XIII are high on my list, but now I'm not sure about XIII. The main gripe seems to focus on weak AI:

    Annoying "media ads" and screen stealers

    Is there a way to prevent these relatively new ads from the likes of AOL seen on www.usatoday.com and other sites? The ads creep up over the page and then hide back into a banner. I have the google pop-up blocker (highly recommended!) but these ads are unaffected. Any help would be appreciated.
