Why Does Steve Jobs Have to Be Such a Douche About Autographs?

I completely understand not wanting to sign autographs all the time. He has work to do. He has to help run Apple and Pixar and constantly keep ahead of the cool curve in the world of technology. What I don't understand is the he will NEVER sign autographs and gives you a "kiss my ass" when he tells you he doesn't. Doesn't he understand that most people are asking out of respect and admiration? …

7 Disturbing Trends for 2008

7. Computerized voices on all the new songs If I hear another T-Pain song again I am going to fill my ears with that foam stuff that fills cracks and insulates.

I Can Now Enjoy Wallstreet Warriors

MOJO has done the right thing. They've come back with a new season of Wall Street Warriors. I say the right thing because the first season made me gag watching Tim Sykes' lame ass trying to prove to the world how cool he is. Now that they have him off the show I can sit back and enjoy the new "characters" of season two. They have moved out of the world of hedge funds and into the world of private …

Did You Get the $100 Oil Press Release?

“Bring it on…” and We’re Not Worried. Those were two of the signature phrases CNBC used with the press when FBN launched.

Yet Another Reason To Watch Womens Tennis: Tamira Paszek

Bye Bye Lindsay I Barely Knew Ya

Today is an exciting day. Today Wallstrip is getting a new host named Julia. Lindsay and Howard helped mold Wallstrip into the show it is today.

You’re Gonna Get Keyed: 8 Parking No Nos

It's a pretty simple concept. There are lines marked on the ground that help guide one driver into one said location in which to leave our vehicle.

So I am going to give you a little Cliff Note version of the rules. 1. There are lines i …
