<3 Television Without Pity

Regarding a pair of American Idol hopefuls: "I'm going to say some words: bisexual polyamory. Magic tricks. Renaissance Faire. Klingon costume. Bondage and domination. Those are just some words for you."

Television Without Pity reviews without mercy.

CES 2008 Hall of Shame

Share
The CES 2008 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase honored the Atom Chip Corporation, which was exhibiting the same 100GB, 500GB, and 1TB “quantum optical” memory chips back in 2006. Long gone are the “SolarMemory” chips.


A little easy digging later showed that they’d been making extraordinary claims and exhibiting prototypes at CES during the past three years, long enough to make “atom chip hoax” the fourth suggestion on typing “atom chip” into Google. Atom Chip Corporation’s web site bids us all “Welcome to the World of Nanomicrons and Beyond.” Which is a world smaller than a meaningful subatomic unit, the proton.


I’m disappointed that the “preeminent” panel of judges failed their vetting and gatekeeping functions. And I fear that Atom Chip will gather investors based on their recognition at CES, and continue in the game for many years to come, while honors at CES become a Hall of Shame.

That river flowed past me, where is it now?
That bird sang for me, where is it now?
Where is the rose my lover’s heart wore?
That kiss made me drunk, where is it now?
That girl I was, the one I traded for
another self - where is she now?

The spam filter at the dating site where I work flags all direct emails where the sender claims to be honest, trustworthy, caring, or loyal. Because these are the words scammers use to attract  victims to their games. Beware of such claims!
