Weird Places And Books


The above image is my 2005 photo of a Yuma Territorial Prison Cell Block

Today's song is Mirage by Tommy James and the Shondells, released in 1967.

This week I received my copy of the Weird Arizona book. This is the second book from the Sterling Publishing Company, Inc. that uses a photo of mine. This time the above photo from my Yuma Territorial Prison trip appears on page 196 of that new book. The book's cover is shown below.

Last year, another photo of mine was used for their Weird Hauntings book and I wrote about that on my September 25, 2006 home page.

As the popularity of Time Out Of Mind grows, so does the opportunity to be credited with my various works. It's easy!

Mac Technology Links:

---

WalMart to start selling a $199 computer. A monitor is extra. It will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next year.

I doubt those sales will have much of an effect on Apple, Inc. For Dell and Microsoft, this news has more of a potential downside effect for them since they cater to the low-end technology crowd. Now they face increased competition at the real low-end.

If WalMart can capture the low-end market away from Dell and Microsoft, then the mid-range and high-end market opens up for a grab by Apple since in my humble opinion, Apple's products are the best in those ranges. The Apple computers can run Linux as well as Windows so why wouldn't a system that can run all the OS's be purchased?

It seems to me those Mac mini's are going to look pretty good to users of those low-end WalMart system users at some point.

Intel has an idea to help bring wireless broadband to Africa.

Maybe we in America need to speed up too.

Hulu is a new service for delivering digital video. I found a page of gripes about it.

By reading some of the reader comments on that gripe list, two alternative technologies were discussed to deliver video to all your digital video devices: eyeTV Hybrid; and, VisualHub.

So now GelaSkins offers attractive covers for the iPod. Maybe they will use some of my digital art for their covers?
