Video: How to outsmart your child, the old-fashioned way

All I have heard discussed on the radio and TV this morning is the unfortunate Josh Hamilton injury and the inevitable should-he-or-shouldn’t-he have gone home. Yes, it’s a worthy debate…for about five minutes; but then let’s move on.

However, since this is a 24-36 hour sports dead zone – March Madness over, no football, end of NBA regular season, April baseball – the Hamilton injury is the story of the day and all anyone is talking about, because it really is all there is to talk about.

Rather than pile on, I’ll take this opportunity to post some random entertainment while we await Devon’s sure-to-be-badass NBA Playoffs Preview (to be posted later today).

Here is the first bit of random entertainment, a funny video teaching all of the parents out there how to outsmart their children…the old-fashioned way.

Who says you don’t learn anything from cartoons? This is straight out of Loony Toons and the kid falls for it hook-line-and-sinker. Well done dad. We salute you.

  30. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  31. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
