Tiger Woods was an *ss but the Press needs to Chill

Tiger Woods shouldn't have done what he did - however I'm never one to believe in kicking a man when he's down - (he's got or rather, currently has, a wife for that - (and she should be beating the crap out of him)). However, the press's, a by indirection, the public's obsession with Tiger Woods and his off-course activities is just W.R.O.N.G.

Tiger and his family need time, privacy to figure out how and if they wish to re-assemble their family life. Publishing his name, rumours, inuendo and speculation online does nothing to assist them with that.

"But he's a public figure" - Everyone's a public figure in their 15 minutes of fame. What ever happened to the Golden rule? If we were in the same situation, heaven forbid, we'd want to be given time and space to work the situation out.

This is what society's come to.... Sheesh.

BlackBerry = CrackBerry

I've had a BlackBerry pearl before and enjoyed using it - however being the cheapskate I aspire to be I never enabled the data plan. Recently after my mobile died with a screen glow of death we switched to TMobile and the BlackBerry flip and another model that I'm too lazy to look up the model # for (8530?).

We enabled internet on one due to it being necessary for the Rebate and now I feel like I've been sucked into a bad path. I can't stay away - I can't stop using it - checking it, reading my emails - gasp! - even surifng the web on it.

It seems that I'm always behind the times (yeah!) but I think I understand that the term CrackBerry was about 3-4 years ago.

Hmmm, Wonder if I'd be this way or worse with an iPhone?
