Texting taps out a family-friendly result -

Texting taps out a family-friendly result -
"A family that texts together, stays together. Or at least it stays in touch better.
and later
"The phone survey of 2,252 adults, between Dec. 13, 2007, and Jan. 13, 2008, also shows that families use those technologies to stay in touch with each other throughout the day."

No Armstrong at TDF?

10 Speed » Blog Archive » Armstrong may be having a change of heart about Tour:
"Armstrong has adjusted his message since the Vanity Fair story announcing his comeback. In that story, his comeback seemed to be all about winning the Tour de France for the eighth time and proving once and for all he raced clean and won fair and square. But since then, his message has focused more on his global cancer initiative through LIVESTRONG, sprinkled with realism that winning the Tour again might not be possible — or even practical considering Alberto Contador is the undisputed leader of the Astana cycling team .....Focusing on the Giro certainly would solve a couple of problems. It would remove the issues about the team leadership of Astana, which would be Contador’s role at the Tour de France and presumably Armstrong’s at the Giro, which Armstrong not only never won but never even competed in."
I hope US TV covers the Giro!
