Strange Horizons has posted their 2007 recommendations for books, TV, etc.
The Philip K. Dick nominees have been announced (nothing to do with writing like him, it just honors SF books 1st published in paperback in the US). I already want to read 3 on the list, but I've never heard of the other 3.
The upcoming USB version 3.0 was shown (but not demonstrated) at the Consumer Electronics Show. They have an article with pictures here. It will be backwards compatible with current USB 1.1 and 2.0 by placing the connectors deeper and allowing the other connections in front.
DVR for tonight:
10pm CSI: NY
