The lazy person's guide to Thanksgiving

This year, relax.

Thanksgiving can be a day to go all out — spend hours cooking a meal unlike any other, comb through your music collection looking for the perfect dinner mix, deck out the house in a way that would make Martha Stewart say “wow.” It can be the apex of home-cooking, the Oscar of entertaining, the Super Bowl of family gatherings.

Or, you can go the other way.

By Dave Long dlong@hippopress.com

Anyone else see NFL.com’s newly announced list of the Top 100 Players in history? While these type of things have a way of sending me around the bend, I do still love them. And this one is probably the best I’ve ever seen, because they based it on a player’s dominance in his era to balance off changes in football brought on by physical and intellectual evolution.

TECH: Blu on Black
Annual sale means it's upgrade time
By John Andrews  jandrews@hippopress.com

Only one week ‘til Black Friday.

Thanksgiving really is the more important holiday — that is, it’s actually a holiday — but with all the buildup this year, I just can’t wait. It’s like retailers finally realized that Black Friday gets people in stores, and a lot of them, especially online, have been declaring “Early Black Friday!” or “Black Friday NOW” sales weeks and months in advance.
