Introducing the PowerSkip - Cool or Weird? You decide!

A friend of mine on MySpace who is a Karate champion said he just got a pair of these things and uses them for training.

When I saw the video I though wow that is totally crazy!

So is this cool or weird?

I just purchased Aaron Wall's SEO Book. I was incredibly impressed with his website and the various chapters from his book that he has posted there. He has numerous tips on how to improve your search engine rankings as well as things you should avoid.

If you are at all interested in increasing the traffic to your site or blog, I suggest you take a moment to visit his site and read some of the wonderful excerpts he has posted there. I will talk more about this as I continue through his book and try to point out some key learnings. You can visit his website here:

First off I want to appologize because I have been really busy this week and haven't had time to post something new here. So this one is a short post, but I thought it was pretty cool. The video itself is pretty good - not exactly sure why it got so many views, but I think the fact that it did get 41,000,000 million views and counting is pretty remarkable. I remember back in the day (2000) when 405 The Movie got like over 1 million views and that was pretty amazing. Anyhoo... here it is! Enjoy.

Albert Einstein on Thinking Different

Here are some famous Albert Einstein quotes I came across recently that struck me as profound...

1. There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

2. We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

3. Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

4. Only a life lived for others is a life worth while.

5. The only real valuable thing is intuition.

6. I am convinced that God does not play dice.

7. Sometimes one pays the most for the things one gets for nothing.

8. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

9. The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.

10. A person starts to live when he can live outside of himself.

11. Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.

12. Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

Final Harry Potter book due out in July

LONDON - " Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the last of seven installments of the boy wizard's adventures, will be published July 21, author J.K. Rowling said Thursday.

Rowling announced the publication date on her Web site.

Bloomsbury, her British publisher, said it would publish a children's hardback edition, an adult hardback, a special gift edition and an audio book on the same day.

Scholastic Children's Books, the U.S. publisher, said it would offer a hardback edition at a suggested retail price of $34.99, a deluxe edition at $65.00 and a reinforced library edition at $39.99.

Bloomsbury noted that this year is the 10th anniversary of the publication of the first "Harry Potter" book in the phenomenally successful series.

The "Potter" books have sold 325 million copies worldwide and been translated into 64 languages, Bloomsbury said.

The last book, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," sold 2,009,574 copies in Britain on the first day of its release, Bloomsbury said.

The Potter franchise is so important to the company's earnings that it announced the publication to the London Stock Exchange.

Bloomsbury shares were up 2.2 percent to $4.40 after the announcement.
