I'm really excited about this.

I'm really excited about this. A 42" flat panel plasma TV for under $3000. From Gateway, of all companies. This undercuts the Philips 40" price by at least $3000. How many of you would buy one of these instead of a 70" projection model for half the price?

Virgin Blue

Virgin Blue, the newest domestic discount airline in Australia, are offering 1000 air fares for $1 each to celebrate their 1st birthday. The $1 fares could be purchased only after Saturday 4/4 at 12:00am AEST and only from their web site (sorry travel agents). I was hoping to pull off a $10 trip to Melbourne for myself and the rest of my family but unfortunately the site is totally down :(

You can own art by Dr. Suess.

You can own art by Dr. Suess. It seems that Theodore Geisel (Dr. Suess) in addition to turning out dozens of books beloved by children (and not a few adults) was also a serious artist, but he kept all the serious art in his home. He did this work just for his own pleasure, and for no other reason.

His widow has now offered much of that art for sale as lithographs and this link shows what is available. It is recognizably the same artist, but equally it is dramatically different.

Available also are pictures from the books.

The opening bid for the Declaration of Independence, which went on sale at sothebys.com at 9am this morning, was $4,000,000.

The opening bid for the Declaration of Independence, which went on sale at sothebys.com at 9am this morning, was $4,000,000. I can't comment too much, because I work for the Sotheby's, but when the sale closes at 5pm today, it may be the most valuable object ever sold online. We're all going to stand in a big room from 4-5 today and watch the bids come in.
