Web Watch loves watching the Super Bowl. Yeah, we don’t often care what teams are playing – although we always cheer for the NFC – but we love the glory, the spectacle, the over-excess of the event itself.
And yes, we even get to watch a decent commercial or two.
Web Watch often hears Luddites talk about how battery-operated devices still need to get their energy from somewhere, so we’re not actually saving energy by driving around in our hybrid cars or otherwise relying on battery packs to get us what we need.
When it comes to Customer Service, what retail companies come to mind?
We’ve heard countless stories about companies like Costco taking back anything that they sell, no matter how long ago you purchased it… but while Costco is an awesome place to shop, the long lines and lack of salespeople on the shopping floor can turn some potential shoppers off, as getting out of there with a purchase can be a bit more difficult than it needs to be.
Web Watch enjoys the staff at the local Home Depot and Lowe’s, but there are times when both stores struggle to answer our seemingly simple questions.
Do you remember the classic TV show, MAN FROM ATLANTIS?
It featured an actor with webbed fingers and toes, able to swim deep into the ocean to solve crimes. Our recollection is that he had gills and could breath underwater like Aquaman, but there’s been a lot of alcohol in our system since then so we may be confusing two different characters.
In 2006, the US adult industry made over $13 billion in revenue.
In revenue, porn brings in more money than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, eBay, Yahoo, Apple, Netflix, and Earthlink combined.
Let’s say that last word again: combined.
Yes, online (and elsewhere) we can safely say, “porn is king”. Just like the porn industry is credited with the rise of VHS over Beta, the porn industry is also credited with pushing the technology envelope and make today’s Internet what it has become.

How much do you tip your wait staff when you visit a bar or restaurant?
Some people go for the standard 20% off the final total of the bill — just take the total, move the decimal point, and multiply by 2… voila! No math required and you left a 20% tip.
Some people jump through complicated hoops to come up with a 15% or 18% tip.
We’ll be honest here – there have been times that Web Watch has left less than 15%… but trust us, the wait staff didn’t do their job that day by listening to what the customer wanted (they didn’t bring us the requested drink, the requested condiment on the side rather than on the sandwich, etc – and it wasn’t because the restaurant was busy that day… it was just bad service all the way around.)
Then again, we also agree with our friends who say that “a little Las Vegas goes a long way”. In other words, these people don’t necessarily enjoy the entire gambling, casino, nightlife, gambling aspect of Sin City.
Web Watch knows people that took a vacation out to Nevada and other points west, and their Las Vegas experience consisted solely of driving down the Las Vegas Strip. They didn’t stop, they didn’t browse. They had lunch as a nearby McDonald’s (not even at the In-n-Out!) before continuing on their merry way.
We don’t blame them. There are aspects of Las Vegas that we don’t appreciate either. But to each their own.
Well, they’re a lot of fun. And not filled with old people playing shuffleboard. Of course, it helps if you’re able to take a cruise with a large group of people, so you always have someone fun to hang out with besides your Significant Other.
But let’s keep in mind that a cruise ship is its own entity – especially when it gets out into International Waters, where almost anything can happen when you’re outside of a specific country’s jurisdiction.
Nobody can deny that disco music is, well, just plain fun.
It may have been the height of cheese back in the day when it was new, but there’s something special about hearing those synth riffs and rock flute over a hip-shaking beat that just makes you want to move your booty.
So here’s one person who mashed up today’s hitsfrom Adele, Enrique Iglesias, David Guetta, Timbaland, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taio Cruz, and others with a little bit of that 70′s disco beat that can just get your feet moving.
