Pre Answers to Pre Questions
A few of my questions about the Pre have been answered, and there is some speculation about others. First, on the processor – the Pre will have the Texas Instruments OMAP3430. This thing is sick. Google it if you want more information, but I’ll just say I’m no longer concerned about the processor.
The touch screen is capacitive, and multi-touch. Woo hoo!
I’m still a little unclear on how the Gesture Area works, because I saw a demo video from CES where someone was using gestures to rotate an image right in the center of the screen, way outside of the Gesture Area.

100 Push Up
I started doing this 100 Push Ups plan. It’s a schedule for building up to being able to do 100 consecutive push ups. I think the schedule is a little too aggressive, but I’m going to try to follow it. I haven’t figured out why I’m doing this yet, but I’m trying not to think about it too much so I don’t talk myself out of it. 4 weeks from now I’m going to be great at pushing myself off the floor slightly.
The same guy is developing a plan for doing 200 sit-ups. I guess I’m going to try this, too.

2010, Year of the Flying Car
No, for real. A company in Massachusetts says they’ll be selling a flying car next year for $200,000.
