This American Life on NPR has a good podcast about one bad apple spoiling groups, contrary to common thought that group dynamics are more powerful than an individual.

If you’re looking for a well written iPhone app to keep track of your car maintenance needs, check out Gas Cubby. It’s on sale today only for $0.99 (normally $5).
If you’re wondering what to get me for Christmas, then wonder no more. Pictured above is an Admiral James T. Kirk action figure commemorating that epic moment in Star Trek 2 when he shares how he really feels about Khan.

My Tivo got the service update that enabled Netflix streaming. I reactivated my Netflix account, enabled it on my Tivo, and was streaming content in about 3 minutes. The quality is excellent and the interface is great–you simply add a “Watch Instantly” flick to your “Watch Instantly Queue” (separate from your normal DVD queue) and it becomes available immediately on your Tivo to watch.

UPDATE: I tested this out at Starbucks on the walk home. It works like a charm.
