Up until yesterday, you could buy an application for your iPhone that costs $999.99.
What does it do?
Not a darn thing.
It simply puts that red icon in your iPhone’s desktop so that people will see it and know that you are so wealthy that you can afford to waste money just for prestige…
Apple pulled the app, apparently on a moral basis…
You can read the whole story on the LATimes here.
but it got me think: what’s the difference between this app and, say, spending $100 bucks for a pair of jeans that you could get for $25 without the label that says ‘Diesel’ or ‘Polo’?

Yesterday, at work, I downloaded the newest sermon from Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Church. I got really excited when I read the title: “Trinity: God Is”. It turns out that they started a series on ‘Doctrine’! I love it!
But my work has been so intense that I haven’t been able to focus enough to listen to a sermon on the trinity and work simultaneously… so I dragged the mp3 file over to my new phone (thanks mom and dad!).
This morning, I listened to the sermon on the way to work, and I got here with my heart filled with worship.
I love technology.
I love Mark Driscoll.
I love my parents.
All of the above were God’s idea :0)

So, apparently all the cool people in the world ‘tweet’ on Twitter. I saw this video on RagamuffinSoul, and I figured I’d make an account and give it a test drive, but apparently it’s not really much fun unless all your friends ‘tweet’ too.
So, anybody want to be my friend?
(insert pouty lips/eyes :0)

Everyone, say hello to the new ‘macbook air’.
This will probably be the object of my lust for the next several weeks…

I kid you not —
I just saw this article from MSNBC on slashdot. The title is, “Scientists look to sperm to power nanobots”
The article begins:
A tiny assembly line that powers the whip-like tail of sperm could be harnessed to send future nanobots or other tiny medical devices zooming around the human body, according to a preliminary research report.
I just don’t know what to say.
I’m literally speechless…
