The Seahawks took the field to The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony”, while the
Steelers took the field to Fat Boy Slim’s “Right Here, Right Now”. What
could be more bittersweet than making it to The Big Game, and then losing?
That was obviously a subliminal message to the Stepford referees as to which

Not my year for gadgets. First, my NetGear SC101
suffered a breakdown, and now my cool Logitech
Wireless Headphones for iPod have given up their ghost as well. As

transmitter. I could re-pair the headphones and the transmitter, but as
soon as the music started, they’d lose their connection again.
E-mailing Logitech support gave me a couple of steps to try, including the
reset button and re-pairing, but no fix. So I’m on the phone with tech
support to get an RMA. I’m going to miss these things until the
