This season, has substantially upgraded their media player integration and capabilities. Now you can listen to the game broadcasts in a Flash player and view the live stats courtesy of CBS Sports GameTracker.

Michelin Energy Saver Tires boost my fuel economy 4 percent


I mentioned before that I bought some new Michelin Energy Saver All-Season tires for my Toyota Prius. The advertising materials from Michelin claim that using the tires will achieve up to an 8% increase in fuel economy.

Anecdotally I have been able to achieve about a 47 MPG average for combined mileage, approximately a 2-4% improvement versus my previous average with the original tires. Having driven about 1 month (1,500 miles?) on the tires this modest improvement in my Prius mileage doesn’t save a ton of money but I am impressed that the tires really have made a difference in the car’s fuel economy.

The Joy of a Salesman

This is a funny movie I was shown at work today. The dialogue is hilarious and the technology is interesting. You can type a bunch of stuff into the website and it spits out a computer-acted dialogue in classic computer-voice.
