I was in Orlando yesterday and am happy to report that bad weather in Tampa didn't find its way to Orlando. WDW seemed to be as busy as ever.

Re: Norway Gets Frozen

Frozen taking over Norway is just one more step in the slow process of Epcot losing its away and its purpose.

Re: Does this make sense?

MRAM has a future but it comes with a price. NVE is profitable so you are not buying technology that cannot be sold for the benefits it provides today. I like that. I also see mass markets that could use the benefits of the technology (small size, [more]

Re: Guardian Explosion

Saw the 1:45 PM show in 2D on Tuesday. There were, maybe, 50 people in the theater. It was obvious from the cars leaving the parking lot after the movie that 90+% of the people in the eight theaters were there to see Guardians.
