On this first Monday of the new year, I’d like to talk about resolutions. It’s around this point, after the first weekend, when things get busy, where we learn whether our resolutions are possible.

Well, this is the year not to slack off. 1) We’re at a critical point where our decisions could win or lose this high stakes game to save the economy. 2) This is our final year to define this first decade of the new century. Thus far, this decade has been defined by tragedy and political missteps.

So while we’re trying to sustain our resolutions to eat less, drink less, read more, etc., we should add 5 more to the list. And these 5 resolutions shouldn’t be for the coming year alone; we should hold these resolutions as lifestyles.

“I’m really glad you found a babysitter tonight.”

“Naw, I’m just keeping track of Baby Dan with my iPhone.”

“Katy Perry nip slip.”

“Dude, what the f%&# is a matter with you? Oh…you’re on the phone. Well, now I feel retarded.”

“Hey, look what I found.”

“Is that a nipple?…Sweet.”


Google is expected to launch a voice search app on Apple’s iPhone today. Google fans are already quite aware of its voice technology, which was integrated with Goog-411 (the cool AND FREE 411 service for your phone.) Now, with great apps like Remember the Milk [?] and Voice Search, Apple’s popular cell phone will be more business efficient than the Blackberry. Storm will need to act pronto to add these features to please Blackberry owners, like yours truly, or else we’re going to ask Santa for iPhones.

Of course, this isn’t for everyone. Some people don’t like using their voice technology, especially if English is not your native tongue. And once I tried searching for a Mexican restaurant with Juan in the title…I had to JOO-awn for Goog-411 to get me…
