The search for (sexy) cars

Yesterday, March 31st, 2007 I went to the 28th Street Toyota dealership to see what a Scion tC looks like in person. Martha took some pictures as I talked with the sales person. The sales person, Alfred Luke, seemed very knowledgeable about the Scion tC. He started by showing us his 2005 Scion tC that he owns himself.

Originally I had assumed that I needed to request what parts I wanted “special” on the car, and they would then have it shipped from Japan. But, come to find out, all of the parts they install right there. So, if I wanted to purchase the car I was looking at, all they would do is install the parts to that very one.

All in all, the total price will be $19927 MSRP after I put in all my eye-candy goodies.

I logged into Yahoo

Today, I logged into yahoo to find that I was presented with an advertisement from Sprint. They were advertising like they typically do on the right side of my email client, but today they caught my eye. They had an advertisement for a sleek looking cell-phone (M610 by Samsung). So, curiously, I clicked it. Low and behold it loaded in a Valentines Day looking Flash Applet. This would be fine, except everywhere it said “Undefined” (meaning the flash didn’t load an xml source correctly somewhere). Oops, that’s what is known as a loss in profit.

I found the correct path. I just stripped off the GET crap in the url and everything loaded correctly. But, as you may see, it still didn’t take me directly to information on that cell phone. I gave up looking in frustration and posted this instead. Good think I went with Verizon Wireless.
