Luckily Paul has and iPhone. He was quickly able to access the GEICO website and have them send him a .pdf of his current proof of insurance. He showed this to the officer who gladly accepted it.
If you think about it, the iPhone costs $200. If Paul had gotten this ticket, he would have lost $200 (or his license). Talk about a good investment (those are hard to find these days).
Just another reason to love your iPhone.
Reports say that the plane was taken from Jersey City (440) to Rt 46 to Teterboro Airport.

From Complex Magazine:
Talk to me about a private failure that wasn’t in the headlines, the thing that just keeps you up at night. Something people can relate to. Not necessarily a public thing, but a thing you twist and turn over.
Kobe Bryant: [Long pause] Dogshit? Like, I hate dogshit. I have a dog and I do not clean the crap outside. It’s a phobia. It drives me crazy. You wake up in the morning and you think, Damn, this big ol’ German shepherd probably just took a crap outside in the yard, and I gotta wake up and go pick it up. That is something that keeps me tossin’ and turnin’. Does that qualify?
I guess, but that’s not so bad. That’s just dogshit.
Kobe Bryant: I hate dogshit. I. HATE. DOGSHIT.
You’re a neat freak!
Kobe Bryant: Not necessarily. I just don’t like dogshit. But the thing that really keeps you up at night all the time, my wife as well, is our kids. It’s always you thinking, Are you raising ’em the right way? How are they doing?

Martellus Bennet has been fined 1 game (about $22,000) by the Dallas Cowboys for his rap video that was posted on YouTube. No, it was not removed because he is a bad rapper, but because he takes shots at other players, including Dallas QB Tony Romo. The video has since been removed from YouTube. Hmmm... what's a word that rhymes with Romo? I bet that was a tough one to come up with. [Dallas Morning News]
Meanwhile Tony Romo is nailing Jessica Simpson. How's that for homo? But wait! Looks like Romo might be under Simpson's sheets,...but with another girl not named Jessica Simpson. According to an article in Star Magazine. After Jessica Simpson left town to do some promo work, in which she looks HUGE (not in any good way), Tony had a house party at 'his place.' Turned out that his place was actually Jessica's place (it was pretty obvious from the records on the walls). And while people were partying it up at Jessica's house, without Jessica there, Romo was supposedly having his own private party with a lady friend, again not named Jessica Simpson, upstairs. [SCP]
In news away from the mess that is the Dallas Cowboys, the Tamba Bay Buccaneers have hired Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski as their offensive coordinator. If you remember, BC had told J.J. that if he went to interview with the Jets head coaching position, he would get fired. He did and they fired him. Now he has a job in the NFL and BC has replaced a coach that helped them get to muliple bowl games. Not to mention produced this years NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Matt Ryan. [ESPN]
This is the preview for the Wobble iPhone application. Basically it makes any part of any picture "wobble." Undoubtedly, they is for boobs and butts. But Apple isn't having any of that. They asked the creators to remove any dirty language that would reference to the jiggling of boobs and butts.
So now, the app's description reads: "You can make (censored) and (censored) jiggle and bounce like real when you shake your phone." Which is dirtier than it actually is! [Gizmodo]
This is a gadget built from scratch from a guy named ChaN. It uses a three-axis accelerometer to help control playback, next track, previous track, volume control and pause/stop. It loads up Mp3s via SD card.
The above link shows how this guy made this thing. He should just go build them and sell them online in mass production. Judging purely from the video the sound quality is pretty damn good. [Gizmodo]
I know everyone wants to know everything about our new president, but this is just too much information. I wonder what sources this woman has. Pictures? Webcams?
Here's a hint for old people, STOP TRYING TO USE NEW LINGO YOU DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OF! FIST BUMP, NOT FISTING, YOU PERV!
Today, he was asked if he would be willing to re-work his contract so that the Cardinals would keep Anquan Boldin. His response:
"Someone asked me a question if I would be willing to do something to help the team, and I said, 'No problem,'"
"This opportunity right here to be playing deep in the postseason, this is an amazing feeling. I'll do whatever it takes to get back to this point going forward in my career." [ESPN]
Whether or not Boldin will want to stay is another question all together. But the fact is that Larry Fitzgerald is a winner. Regardless of the outcome of this year's Superbowl, Fitzgerald is a winner in this league.
In the final drive of the NFC Championship Game, yeah, Fitz had some big catches, but what's more important is what happened after the catch. And I'm not talking about YAC. Fitzgerald was FIRED UP! And that intensity was contagious because after those catches by Fitz, Hightower was amped. The drive led to the game winning touchdown by Hightower, but make no mistake about it, without the fire of Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals would be back at home right now.
When you got players like Plaxico Burress, Adam "Pacman" Jones and Michael Vick you need special players to turn the image of the NFL around. Larry Fitzgerald is one of those players. He's a good guy and a great player that wants to win more than anything.
If Roger Goodell wants to turn around this image of NFL players who keep getting into trouble for doing stupid things off the field, he needs to promote the images of players like Fitzgerald. Like others have said, the NBA has LeBron James and Kevin Garnett, MLB has Derek Jeter, the NFL needs players (not teams necessarily) to be the face of the league. Larry Fitzgerald (along with others like Matt Ryan) can be that face.
Sorry Granny, but it looks like you'll have to quickly set up your digital TV box because the House of Reps. just voted down the bill that was passed by the Senate to delay the countries switch from analog to digital. Looks like we are back to February 17th again.
Here's the second trailer for the Chun-Li movie, it's BAAAAD, worse than the first one! I'm sure it will still be better than Dragonball. I still see no Thousand Leg Kicks except in the animation preview!
This is getting out of hand, talking fake babies saying "Islam is the light." First off babies in this age range CAN'T TALK! Toy makers are so unrealistic these days. Why is she playing the game? Isn't it for her kids? Ugh, first that stupid doll and now this stupid game. Hey lady, if you don't want this kind of propoganda, STOP BUYING STUPID TOYS FOR YOUR KIDS!
The US Senate has approved the recommendation by President Barack Obama to delay the conversion date of digital TV for four months. The original date of conversion was February 17, 2009. I guess this lady will have some more time to get the digital thing down.
I don't see too many people happy about this, and definitly not the folks over at PBS. They say, delaying the digital TV transition for four months would cost public broadcasters $22 million.
How so?: PBS stations will face additional power costs, and in some cases make new arrangements, for sending over-the-air TV signals after mid-February, she said. The switchover date was meant to end the analog, or over-the-air, television signals.
According to BBC:
Those born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others.
If you need honest, steady and unbiased advice, call on the Ox.
The downside is they can have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent.
Ox people are generally easy-going, but they can be very stubborn, and hate to fail or be opposed.
Oxen don't care to be pushed, especially since they think they're the good guys of the Chinese zodiac.
There is some truth to that theory, since the Ox is smart, trustworthy, caring and honourable.
What Oxen need most: To overcome that judgmental streak and let others get closer.
Most compatible with: Snakes, Roosters, and Rats.
Sigh. When will Rim and Verizon learn to stop putting out Beta products? The Blackberry Storm was released with buggy software that needed multiple firmware updates. It wasn't like the bugs small and unnoticeable either. They would cause crashes and cause severe lag. Not to mention that the phone isn't even as fast as other Blackberrys, such as the Bold. That vertical 2 letter per key keyboard is pretty annoying as well, but we know that a patch is on it's way to fix all that.
Here's the key, stop putting out crappy gadgets to meet deadlines. Offer some sort of simplicity and open up the product for everyone, not just businesses. They better pick this up fast because after the release of Android, you can bet Google is going to creep into the mix and RIM will have 2 competitors to worry about. [AppleInsider]
Spouses be afraid!
This guy is a total wack job if my first reaction. But later...
"This is the third U.K.-based Facebook murder story to happen in the past year."
So maybe it's just people in U.K.
Either way, stop killing people based on facebook. And heck, even if you did because that was the last straw in a string of events, don't make that your stupid excuse. Stop blaming facebook for your marital problems and hadle them like a human being instead of killing people. [Computer Weekly]

I'm sure Dwayne Wade is a fan of this commercial from 1986.
According to sources in Chicago, Eddy Curry's young son saw his mother and his 9-month-old baby-sister being murdered in a Chicago apartment on Saturday.
Curry's former girlfriend Nova Henry, 24, was fatally shot on the scene along with her infant daughter. Curry's 3-year-old son was found unharmed.
Henry had claimed that the murdered girl was also Curry's daughter, but he has denied being the father.
According to Chicago Police, the killer may have been a known acquaintance. They say Henry had a boyfriend who she had filed a restraining order against.
There is no word if any suspects are being questioned at this time.
According to the New York Daily News, sources close to Curry say the Knick's Center cried when he found out after the team's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night.
Autopsies are set to be performed Sunday.
It's been a tough month for Eddy Curry. Less than a month ago, he was sued for sexual harassment and racial discrimination and now this. Not to mention the fact that he has barely seen any playing time this season after coming into training camp overweight and out of shape which led to his knee injury.
Back in 2007, Curry and his wife were tied up at gun point while their Chicago house was robbed.
The New York Daily News Knicks beat writer Frank Isola says this may very well lead to the end of Eddy Curry's career despite the fact that he is well-liked by his teammates.
Not to mention the lack of respect from your own players.
...oh yea and going 2-14 might have something to do with it as well. Tony Gonzalez, get out!!!!
"[Under state Senate rules] if the cowboy charged with stealing a horse was charged with doing that in town, but in fact on the date and time that he apparently stole the horse in town he was on the ranch with six other cowboys, herdin' cattle and ropin' steers, and then he expects that when his day comes to go to court he can bring those six cowboys to say it wasn't him 'cause he wasn't in town he was on the ranch herdin' cattle, even if he could bring those cowboys into say that, under these rules, under 8B, it wouldn't matter."
Doesn't he have a lawyer? Isn't that what lawyers are for? To talk for you because you are too stupid to do it yourself? No Blago, they are not hanging you! You are hanging yourself and your mouth is the noose! [CBS]
What's worse than losing the chance to be the first person to interview heroes pilot Chesley Sullenberger? Losing the chance to your former co-host. After Matt Lauer lost the chance to be the first to interview Sully on the Today Show, word came out today that the first interview is now set for February 8. Except, it will be with Katie Couric and will air on 60 Minutes.
