I read in yesterday's WSJ that some dude in Dubai ordered 10 of this one-77 Astons. Aston initially said "no way, jose" but Oil rich offered $900K premium for each car and Aston said "but, of course" Not well put design as Vantage which I think one of the best looking car today but only 70 in the world makes certain dude hard for them, i guess.

wonderful birthday phrase from web. Dig.
Here's to the crazy one. The mercurial. The rebel. The market maker. The lucky guy with the new liver. The one who sees things differently. He's not fond of rules and bad typography. And he has no respect for mediocrity.
You can praise him, disagree with him, quote him, disbelieve him, glorify or vilify him. About the only thing you can't do is ignore him. Because this guy created the personal computer market, he introduced the first commercial computer with a graphic user interface, was booted from his own company, then came back, saved it from death, reinvented one of the best operating systems on the planet, reinvented the music player, kicked the record companies on the balls, failed to reinvent TV, reinvented the cellphone OS as we know it, got a cancer that means almost-certain death, recovered, and he's back in business, hopefully for a long time, and trying to change the computing world once again.
He invents. He sometimes has a very bad temper. He healed. He came back. He created again. And he keeps inspiring. Or at least, he inspires me.
Happy 55th birthday, Steve.

i have not bought Nike for decades for some reason I can quite pin point but looks like they are back in town with cooler designs. I like the color combo as well as their whatever innovation to state this style as Running shoes.
from web: new hi-tech running boots from Nike. "Addressing the need for stability, flexibility and weatherproofing, the HTM2 incorporates Nike Free natural-motion technology combined with a lightweight, water-repellant, four-way-flexible upper." Available exclusively in Japan and at Nike 21 Mercer.
