San Joses Beats LA 2-1 Qukes Still Number one in the West!!!! - News - 08/28/2005: "SAN JOSE -- Saturday's match between the Los Angeles Galaxy and the San Jose Earthquakes was a night for players to score against their former teams. Unfortunately for L.A., it was two of their former players who did more of the damage, condemning the visitors to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of their northern rivals.

Alejandro Moreno had put the Quakes in front with a header midway through the first half. But Quakes' old boy Landon Donovan then got a measure of revenge in the 38th minute, scoring a priceless equalizer, his first goal against his former club. It was then left to former Galaxy defender Danny Califf to have the last word, as he headed home the game winner in the 75th minute."

A new Greenpeace International report identifies problems with the ways obsolete electronic gear is handled by recycling businesses overseas, where regulations are few and workplace and environmental hazards are significant.

Bottom line:
Environmentalists are urging lawmakers to implement 'producer takeback' programs that would make manufacturers responsible for handling obsolete gear in an environmentally sound way. Many takeback-program advocates argue that a national system would be the most effective to address e-waste recycling."

POSTED: 9:22 am PST February 4, 2005
UPDATED: 2:32 pm PDT August 7, 2005

SAN FRANCISCO -- Dan Marino capped his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the best way possible: with a long completion.

He licked his fingers, a trademark of his 17 seasons as the NFL's most prolific quarterback, then turned to one of his favorite receivers, Mark Clayton, in the audience.

'Go deep, Mark,' Marino commanded.

Clayton sauntered up the aisle, turned and latched onto -- what else? -- a perfect spiral.

'Of course, in the end, every quarterback wants one more Sunday with a football in his hands and going deep,' Marino said.

Thousands of fans clad in No. 13 Dolphins jerseys shook Fawcett Stadium with cheers, remembering how sweet it was to see Marino setting all his records.

'I'll remember this day for the rest of my life,' Marino said.

Marino joined Steve Young, Fritz Pollard and Benny Friedman in the shrine.

Paying tribute to his Western Pennsylvania roots, Marino noted that John Unitas, Joe Namath, Joe Montana and Jim Kelly all came from the region. All are Hall of Famers.

'When I was younger, there's no doubt I thought about being Joe Namath,' Marino said, adding that joining them in the Hall 'definitely makes an impact on you.

'I've accomplished many things, but what I cherish more than any record I hold, fourth-quarter comebacks or any wins I was involved in, is the relationships.'

That, of course, also included his family, and his oldest son, 20-year-old Daniel, presented Marino for induction. It was then that he was betrayed by the eyes that stared down so many defenses -- they were wet with tears as he took his place among the legends of football.

Marino suspected he might break down during his acceptance speech, but did so even before then after Daniel's speech. None of that on-field stoicism for the Miami Dolphins great, "

File-swap TV comes into focus | CNET

File-swap TV comes into focus | CNET "Jeff Clarke, president of San Francisco's KQED Public Broadcasting, is a fan of Internet file swapping.

For the last several months, Clarke's television and radio stations have been putting content online using a four-month-old peer-to-peer service called the Open Media Network, which gives public broadcasters an affordable way to distribute high-quality versions of their work on the Net.

For now, KQED is doing this with only a few programs--documentaries about San Francisco history or a local park, among others--but more content is on the way. KQED has long experimented with putting video and audio on its Web sites, and the peer-to-peer service now makes it much more affordable to distribute its TV programming online, Clarke said.

What's new:
TV programmers are starting to make use of file-swapping tools to overcome bandwidth issues and put video online.

Bottom line:
Peer-to-peer technologies are making it more practical to distribute video on the Net, broadening the reach for both TV stations and ordinary folk.

More stories on file swapping and video"

Top 10 dot-com flops -

Top 10 dot-com flops - "Top 10 dot-com flops

By Kent German
The most astounding thing about the dot-com boom was the obscene amount of money that was spent. Zealous venture capitalists fell over themselves to invest millions in Internet start-ups; dot-coms blew millions on spectacular marketing campaigns; new college graduates became instant millionaires (albeit on paper) and rushed out to spend it; and companies with unproven business models executed massive IPOs with sky-high stock prices. Of course, we all know what eventually happened to this world. Few of these companies actually made enough money to recoup that cash, and when their investors fled to the hills, these start-ups died dramatic deaths. These are the celebrity victims of the new-economy bust."

'Video' added to iPod trademark | | CNET "'Video' added to iPod trademark

Amid 'Mighty Mouse' mania, Engadget reported Tuesday on a development that's sure to fuel rumors of a September video iPod release.

Engadget's Barb Dybwad wrote that Apple has updated its trademark language for the iPod to cover video as well audio files. 'You know, September is only a month away and all, so we're sure there's some fanboys out there rushing to get in line at the nearest Apple store as we speak,' she wrote.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's search site does show a June filing describing iPods as 'handheld digital electronic devices for recording, organizing, transmitting, manipulating, and reviewing text, data, audio, image, and video files.' But related patents filed in 2004 also make some mention of video."
