Dave!There's new products.

And then there's dangerously new products.

After I got home from work, I saw a commercial for "Krave," which kind of blew my mind...

Kelloggs has a new breakfast cereal called KRAVE. It's cereal filled with chocolate candy. Sweet Jesus I've never felt more proud to be an American.

Because, seriously... IT'S CEREAL FILLED WITH CHOCOLATE CANDY! Isn't it glorious?

KRAVE Cereal

Pour a shot of J├Ągermeister on top, and you've got a party.


My work Mac has been dying for a while now. It's been in near constant use for six years, so this isn't surprising. I'm just happy that it has worked so well for so long... and especially pleased that Apple supported it all this time. So far as I know, you can still run all the latest software on the latest version of MacOS X, which is pretty remarkable. Sure it runs slow, but not prohibitively so. If the video and hard drive controllers weren't flaking out, I probable could have gotten another year or two out of it. But, alas, the video gets jittery even when I replace the video card, and I keep losing files and having crashes, soooooo... I guess it's time.

At first I was looking into getting another Mac Pro. But then I noticed that Apple seems to be distancing themselves from their desktop computer line. It's rarely updated and no real innovations have been happening there for a while. Where the action is at is in the iMac line...


The top-of-the-line iMac is over twice as fast as my current computer. That's not as nice as a new mid-level Mac Pro, which would be four times faster, but an iMac is half the price, so there you have it. It's also pretty. So I ordered a tricked out a 27-inch iMac and we'll see how it goes.

Nothing quite like adding even more profit to Apple's bottom line to make you feel alive.

    I always thought this kind of stuff migrated over to us from you guys, but we’ve had Krave in the UK for a while. I don’t dare try it…it’ll either be a disappointment or an instant dependency issue.

  2. Oh goody! Yet another cereal I have to tell my healthy, but type 1 insulin dependent diabetic children “NO!” for. Sigh…. I bet Paula Deen would eat 5 bowls topped in butter and then just take extra insulin for it all, but that’s another bitch for another time.

    I’m planning on doing the same thing (increasing Apple’s bottom line) by getting a MacBook Air with my tax refund…

    That’s my iMac! ­čÖé

    I must find that cereal. I wonder if they have it out here. have you actually tried it though?

    It’s a heart attack in a cereal bowl.

    I’ve been lusting after a Mac Pro for years… since they were G5s actually. But have leaned towards using laptops as my main system. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I really started thinking about having a home Mac to keep all of my static stuff at home, and moving to a MacBook Air for my portable needs.

    Having several friends that have 21, 24 and 27 inch iMacs, I can attest they are speedy and beautiful works of tech.

    As for this Krave, I might have to try this to see what all the rage is about.
