Tweet Follow me On Saturday I for some reason as I was showering started thinking about the song “The Sound of Silence” and then how my friend Russo has a tendency to sing these songs with a weird voice, so then I was thinking of a submission to the iReport on what I’ve given up to save money, and that led to my American Express Gold Card which I’d stopped using. I had all of those thoughts in one minute of shower time, then I started thinking about the lyrics to the song. See, American...

Tweet Follow me This is a video of my visit to the CNN Atlanta Headquarters and to meet the iReport and CNN International people who’ve been so good to me. I took my Mom as I thought it would be a treat for her as well, especially since she keeps her TV on CNN.  The iReport staff is pretty much like one would see at any Bay Area Internet startup and so I fell right in with their culture.

The result was a drop in Apple’s stock price before the iReport team got wind of the news that the video’s report was false. They took it down 20 minutes later.
