Who knew?

Well, your parents always told you it would make you go blind:

"Federal health officials are examining rare reports of blindness among some men using the impotence drugs Viagra and Cialis... This type of blindness is called NAION, or non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. It can occur in men who are diabetic or have heart disease, the same conditions that can cause impotence and thus lead to Viagra use."

-- "FDA Looking Into Blindness-Viagra Link", SF Chronicle

I didn't know the city limits had expanded that far:

"[P]olice in the San Francisco suburb of Grass Valley arrested a man for taking still photos from his seat during a screening of Star Wars: Episode III..."

Last but not least, if you're tired of staring at the same old TiVo box all the time, you can get a new faceplate for just $30:

"The guys behind Weaknees [my link -C] figured out that you can interchange the front faceplates of TiVo boxes between almost any series 2 TiVo or DirecTiVo... the DirecTV versions always included basic TiVo nav buttons on the face... for die-hard TiVo fans a new button-filled faceplate might serve as a good backup in case your standalone TiVo remote ever dies."
