Let’s go with a twist to this edition of Web Quotes and Counterpoints, it’s organized by good news, bad news, and odd news. You can choose what you want to read first by clicking the links in the prior sentence or just read on (news follows the previous order, so good, bad, and finally odd).
It’s Friday baby!
-me a few minutes ago…sure this past Sunday night and Monday weren’t the best of times but the weekend got here quick!
I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, in this time of war, I feel I must now stand aside, for our party and for our country.
-Mitt Romney via Romney suspends campaign
As someone whose lived in a government led by Mitt Romney, the news that he is suspending his 2008 presidential campaign is a huge relief. Though this news does not officially end his campaign, it does limit his already diminishing momentum. I just love it when someone comes into my home state, barely stays here, yet acts as if he’s know a true Bostonian. Hopefully, we are now only left to wonder where Mitt would have ventured off to if he became president.
If he spent his time as a Massachusetts governor campaigning across the country, would he have traveled the world as a U.S. President campaigning to be the first World Leader? Either way, we’re better of with Mitt out of these elections. Even better, the Republican field now narrows to three candidates. Will the mainstream media continue to ignore Ron Paul, now that he represents a third of the Republican candidates left?
Even without surgery, the 41-year-old Schilling is not expected to be ready to pitch until at least the All-Star break, according to several sources familiar with his condition.
-Gordon Edes from Boston.com writes that Curt Schilling might be out until after the All-Star break. When it rains, it pours, eh New England? Seems those curses are hovering above us again, Pats lose their only game of the year in the Super Bowl, Kevin Garnett remains injured, and now Curt might be out for half a season. Yeah, this one story is enough bad news…moving on.
It looks much fatter than the iPhone, while claiming to be a ‘99% iPhone Clone’.
Sascha over at Live25 found this gem of a device, the HiPhone, which just straight up copies the iPhone. Sure it looks a lot like the iPhone (though being fatter and more oval shaped) and comes with competitive features, but I’d do as Sascha recommends and stay far, far away from this phone. It’s only $130 cheaper than the iPhone so you might us well pony up the extra cash and get the real deal.
