3:07:00 AM SCJ-B3I've been wanting these for almost a year now, ever since I spotted this engadget story about a similar product. The particular kind of SkullCandy headset that I wanted had been out of stock as long as I had been looking for them. Until last week when I accidentally googled a misspelled product id, SCJ-3B instead of SCJ-B3, and suddenly found some in stock! Notice how there's only one store result for SCJ-3B? It's for Smarthome.com and once I found them there I ordered a pair of the SkullCandy SCJ-B3s right away! (I'm purposefully making these links descriptive to try to help smarthome.com out, they shipped my product right away and it was exactly what I wanted, I'm thrilled!)
I know its common practice to include some misspellings of keywords your targeting in your webpages, but I don't think this is the case here-- it's probably not a coincedence that they had some in stock and also had typod the product id. I think people simply weren't able to find them to order them from their store!
Needless to say, I DID notify them of their typo, but only AFTER having succesfully recieved my long sought after SCJ-B3s :P!
And yes, the SkullCandy link headsets are as good as everyone says they are, FINALLY I can have the experience I've been after for months-- being able to keep my iPod in my pocket and take a cellphone call without having to take off my headphones or pause my music. Plus because I got the "jacked" version, so I can use my iPod headphones with it! Brilliant! Though I guess I could have gotten one of these instead :PPermalink - Blogger Backlinks - Technorati - Del.icio.us

8:46:00 PM The meaning of ChristmasYou know I watched that Charlie Brown Christmas special the other night, after listening to an excellent story about it on NPR, and it gave me a new perspective on the whole thing, something I forgot or that I didn't realize-- that Charlie Brown is making comments about commercializing Christmas throughout the show. I also didn't remember tha tit was only 30 minutes long! Another thing that I forgot about was how simple the animations were, and how rough cuts were-- especially compared to the Charlie Brown cartoon right afterwards. Fun fact though (from wikipedia):
The special has not been seen in its original, uncut form since its original telecast in 1965. The opening and closing credits contain references to Coca-Cola, the show's original sponsor. The main titles have Linus and Snoopy crashing into a Coca-Cola sign, while the final end credit mentions "Merry Christmas from your local Coca-Cola bottler." Years later, the FCC imposed sanctions preventing sponsor references in the context of a story (especially children's programming), which is why these elements (as well as several seconds of other footage) have not been seen lately on television, even on home video.Anyways it was really wonderful to watch it and I am looking forward to watching it again next year :) Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
