Ok, that's pretty commonplace, right? Well get a load of this, a Japanese phone company is testing the ability to download scents...what?!? Yep, the cell users will test a new service that allows them to download fragrances. Twenty participants using "Mobile Fragrance Communications" can download files of specific scents accompanied by music or video clips. Oh boy, this could get interesting.

Yippee. The ludicrous price of gas means more shipping businesses may relocate to the Valley 'cause it's a great halfway point to lots of somewhere else's.

I got to thinking outside "the Valley as a call-center megalopolis" box while touring the new Holiday Inn downtown and viewing the unveiling of a snazzy web site redesign by the Fresno Economic Development Corporation. The site reminded me how much we need to elevate our aspirations.

Things are out of control! Now they are going to charge us for checked you know what this means? I and millions of others are just going to try to cram more in our carry-ons and stuff them in spaces that are already insufficient! You just wait! They're going to start weighing people in addition to their baggage and charging us for anything over XX? Airlines are desperately trying to balance costs with revenue and they will stop at nothing!
