Oh no way.

I just read online that TD Banknorth is merging with Jersey's Commerce Bank and will now be known as TD Commerce Bank.

Guess this means that the name of the New Boston Garden is going to change now too?

    Shawmut Center (1995)
    FleetCenter (1995-2005)
    TD Banknorth Garden (2005-2008)
    TD Commerce Bank Garden? (2008-the next merger)

I just read that Jimmy Fallon is probably going to take Conan O'Brien's "Late Night" talk show job once Conan moves to "The Tonight Show" in 2009.

At first I thought, "That's horrible! Jimmy Fallon is an idiot and barely funny."

But you know what? It actually might be a good thing.

Now Fallon will be busy with a five-day a week job. He won't have time for any crappy movies, and he won't even be guest starring on any television shows that I like.

In fact, I think this is a great move, NBC!

If only there was some way to digitally replace him in all DVD copies of Fever Pitch ...

Although I'm still not sure about Conan taking over "The Tonight Show". I mean, he can't be as bad as Leno is (homeboy just ain't funny). But isn't Conan a little better when he can do skits about rubber dogs pooping on stuff, or bears who ... well, you know? That's not really Johnny Carson material.

Also I'm saddened that NBC is moving the show from the studios in Burbank to a new setup at Universal Studios Hollywood. I'm a big fan of Burbank.

(No joke!)

So why is it that everyone is making their own South Park figure of themselves lately?

Isn't that old hat?

Didn't I do that, like, four years ago?

Lemme check ... yep ... four years and two weeks ago (see Fun with South Park!).

I'm so cutting edge it hurts ...

Apple iTunes is now the Top Music Retailer in the US.

Who would have thought of this ten years ago?! I'm sure somebody, but not me ...

So as you might know, I've had a Motorola SLVR for the last year and a half (see Phone fun).

Motorola SLVR

It was supposed to have iTunes, but since it's an International version, it doesn't.

I was, needless to say, unimpressed.

The phone is fine, I rather enjoy how small and thin it is, but the camera just sucks. I really wish I didn't spend as much money on it as I did on it. But that was back when I thought the rainmaker job of all jobs was right around the corner.

It wasn't.

Anyway, now that we're in the middle of planning our return to the States, I've been doing a little research into the cell phone situation back home. See, here in Dubai there's a monopoly on the phone industry, so you know, that doesn't really foster much competition.

But in the States, it's nuts.

Anyway, in all of my research I've found a link to the new Sony Ericsson W890i.

Apparently it's not even out in the States yet, I'm not even sure if it's out in Europe, but it's awesome.

It's even smaller than the SLVR - the SLVR's dimensions are 113 x 49 x 11.5 (all millimeters), and the W890i is 104 x 46.5 x 10. And it has a 3 megapixel camera.

Sadly, it's a Walkman, so there's no iTunes ...

This time, though, I might wait to see what kind of job I land before I go spend a bundle on a phone ...
