Electric Guitar + Amp

Just bought a Yamaha RGX A2 + A Marshall Amplifier – the AVT20X.

Can’t really play, but at least I have the equipment to pretend I do.
Will try to post actual photos of my gear later this week.


FCC 700 MHz winners update

AT&T and Verizon won the 700 MHz auction. It was quite obvious it is not going to remain a secret for long.

Google is obviously not on the list, and for a long time there were discussions that Google was not really interested in the license, but played the game to make sure the FCC apply “open-access” rules to this spectrum.

FCC end 700 MHz Auction

As reported in Unstrung, the FCC ended the 700 MHz Auction at 19.592$ Billions. The Dollar is not what it used be, but this is still a hefty sum.

Now, the big questions are:
1) Who won?
2) Will it be used for WiMAX?

Keter (K&D Design) In Japan

While visiting Japan, we purchased a child Toilet seat. Turned out it is a Israeli product by K&D Design (Keter).

Sumo – First Week

Unfortunately, or luckily, I was too busy during my visit to Japan, so I couldn’t follow the March Sumo Tournament.

But, the Sumo website is wonderful in providing real time (and streaming) information, so I am planning to follow it.

Current results:
Asashoryu is 7-0
Hakuho is 6-1
while Kotooshu is 2-5.

So, the big question is who will win? Mongolian Yokozuna Asashoryu or Mongolian Yokozuna Hakuho.
I am placing my bet on Hakuho.

Out of Whisky

Just before my trip to Japan, I have finished my Glenfiddich Whisky Bottle. I was thinking of buying a Japanese Whisky, but haven’t. (Too heavy, liquids in the suitcase, and other lame excuses).

Bottom line, no Whisky for me. Have to buy one soon.


Jamon Iberico

We just love Jamon Iberico.

So, before I flew back, went to El Corte Ingles. They have a gourmet shop, where I bought this wonderful Jamon Iberico. Too bad it didn’t last for more than two days.
