Zack Morris Still Using The Motorola DynaTAC 8000X
Here’s a clip that will bring you back to your younger years… Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. No Palm Pre or Apple 3GS for Zack… nope, he still prefers a phone only mobile. I’m surprised the DynaTAC 8000X’s battery is still holding a charge after all these years! The clip from the show is below:

Oprah Showcases Home Automation!
Well folks, it looks like Home Automation is finally getting some prime time coverage! Today on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Nate Berkus will be showing off high-tech homes! The featured home uses technology by Control 4 (not my first choice in home automation technology — but oh well). They show how a “handheld screen or remote control” allows a user to “direct everything in the house with just the touch of a finger. It controls the lights, temperature, music, television and security.”
Definitely a step in the right direction — too bad I wasn’t invited on the show to talk about practical home automation! It’s about time home automation starts making itself known to the general population and the Oprah Show is the best vehicle to do so. I hope they also talk about how home automation can be used to save energy.

AS SEEN ON TV: Jimmy Kimmel Has A Russound System?
In a few hours (PT) Jimmy Kimmel will be airing his 1,000th episode on ABC and as I was reading about it on CNN, I noticed Kimmel has a Russound UNO-S2 keypad on the wall, next to his bed. Not sure if this is blog worthy, but it’s not everyday you see a Russound UNO-S2 keypad on TV.
And yes, that’s Richard Simmons.

Besides the technical improvements the amount of shows has also increased — Lost, Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy, Six Degrees, Ugly Betty, The Nine, and The Knights of Prosperity are all available online, for free! Hope you guys think it’s as great as we do…
