Anyone have an idea? Or better yet a picture?

LA Tour Story
As embarrassing as it is to admit it, I am as hooked on the new 90210 as I was on the original. I can't say much about the new Melrose Place as I never even knew they were making one and with our TiVO I rarely need to remember what day shows are on any more, I just expect them to show up and be available when I want to watch them. Failing that I just hit up HULU or YouTube and hunt for a show.
So, it was with more than a little thrill I stumbled upon this Beverly Hills 90210 Filming Location website. Everything you'd like to know about the Walsh family and the Wilsons, so no matter what version you are watching, or both, you are good to go.

That is why Gillette, the razor company, created the Gillette Career Advantage website.

Eek-a-Mouse, er, Rat
The rat-turned-chef made famous in Ratatouille flirts, dances and entertains several times a week at the France pavilion at Les Chefs de France at Epcot. He travels table-to-table on a rolling food cart. Then a Maitre d’ lifts the lid off a silver-domed cheese platter to begin the show and the smallest Audio-Animatronics character ever created by Walt Disney Imagineering.
Not Very 'Apple'
In the Mail App, when typing in an email address, it gives a list of suggestions. In the list, is, of course, my contacts, which I want to see. There are also other suggestions from emails I have sent in the past, and will not use again. (asking for a quote or something) These suggestions continue to pop up, as well as the contacts, co mingled. Is there a way to remove JUST the "other" emails?Was looking forward to the helpful, simple Apple fix to this. Sadly there was but one answer:
They are in your Mail cache and the only way to remove them is to restore your phone and set it up as new phone (not from backup). Probably easier to just ignore them.
Don't think that this is particularly 'solved,' do you? Hive mind solution?
Michael Dell Hates These
According to Michael Dell, a netbook is a dream purchase - until it's about 36 hours old.
"If you take a user who's used to a 14- or 15-inch notebook and you say 'Here's a 10-inch netbook,' they're gonna say 'Hey, this is so fantastic. It's so cute. It's so light. I love it,'" Dell told Silicon Valley's tech-obsessed Churchill Club during an appearance Tuesday night. "But about 36 hours later, they're saying 'The screen's gonna have to go. Give me my 15-inch screen back.'"
I wonder if he's just running the wrong OS on it. At $300 or so and OS X, I am thinking, "Hello new solid state computer!"
A World of Laughter
Slowly it seems the stores lost their fancy windows and the selection went from a mix of products aimed at all ages to cheap junk for kids.
Guess that's going to change as Disney says it will overhaul its mall stores and look to Apple and their stores for inspiration. The NY Times reports that it should be,
"an expensive and ambitious floor-to-ceiling reboot of its 340 stores in the United States and Europe — as well as opening new ones, including a potential flagship in Times Square."

Safe In the Cloud? Think Again.
T-Mobile has reportedly stopped selling all models of the Sidekick in the wake of an unprecedented hardware failure that took down many customers e-mail, contacts, as well as other data.
The company continues to investigate the problem which at this time seems limited to Microsoft products, specifically the Danger subsidiary that power the Sidekick service. Microsoft and T-Mobile posted an updated notice saying all data that was not currently on customers devices was likely lost permanently.

Foxconn building the fabled Apple tablet for Q1 2010 release?
Sent to you via Google ReaderDigitimes is reporting that Taiwan-based Foxconn, a manufacturer that has worked with Apple on a number of projects in the past, has been tapped to build the rumored Apple tablet device for a release in the first quarter of 2010.
The initial production run of the tablet is expected to be 300,000 to 400,000 devices, and no estimated price for the device has been released.
The post notes that the focus of the device is to be an ebook reader with exceptional battery life, fast Internet connectivity, and an easy-to-use interface. This information is in line with recent reports that Apple has been approaching publishers about reproducing their content on the device.
This rumor reflects other recent reports that the tablet will have a 10.6" (some reports say 10.7") display, and there is speculation that the display would come from Foxconn's Innolux Display subsidiary. For the first time, the report notes that other manufacturers are not going to leave Apple any breathing room in this market, as HP and others are planning on releasing their own touchscreen tablets by the second quarter of 2010.

every drop counts
If this sounds like something you have experienced or think you may in the future and if you are lucky enough to live in San Diego then you should remember the name Able Restoration.
Able Restoration is proud to be the largest provider of water damage services to San Diego residents since 1996. San Diego home is a wonderful place to call home but harsh hurricanes and tropical storms can threaten your roof and your home. Damage by water can also stem from high rising river waters, broken levees, flash flooding from severe rainstorms. That's just the natural causes, don't forget broken pipes or a clogged drainage systems that can lead to failure from the accumulation due to light rainfall.
Lots of things to remember, or just one thing: Able Restoration, the solution to water damage San Diego.
