3 straight games of Memoir 44. If anyone is interested in WW2 history this is a great gateway war game
Lords of Waterdeep session. My current favorite game. Really smooth 2 player worker placement game. Waiting to play with more players.

The Dock is great for my bedside and I don’t have to hunt for 2 different plugs when I am staying in a hotel. Great Birthday gift from Sreema.
Love the BambooBack from Groove.

Cult of Mac reports
We’ve gotten word from a previously reliable source that Apple is discontinuing the Magic Mouse in favor of the Magic Trackpad. Our retail source has informed us that Magic Mouse inventory is not being replenished for Apple stores, and that Apple is finally phasing out the Magic Mouse.
Its been a while since I have used my Magic Mouse, with Lion you end up needing the Magic Trackpad for all the new gestures. Too bad, Apple were the ones to make the mouse popular.
However, the mouse remained relatively obscure until the appearance of the Apple Macintosh, which included an updated version of the original Lisa Mouse.
Time for everyone to get Magic Trackpads if you haven’t already!
UPDATE: Cult of Mac:
Our source in Apple inventory has followed up with us, and it appears that Apple has instead discontinued the Magic Mouse’s old part number in favor for a new one. This move may indicate an update to the Magic Mouse, with the most logical prediction being better integration with advanced gestures in OS X Lion.

The early iPhone 5 mockups indicate that the home button is going to be huge!
The Russians used a pencil:
I believe that if this new gesture region is in fact coming to the iPhone, it will be used for only one thing: switching between open apps. We can all agree that the current multitasking solution (double clicking the home button and then tapping the respective app) could stand to be improved. A left-to-right swipe would transition to the previously used app, while a right-to-left swipe would move the other way in the app history. This new gesture area would essentially mimic the function of the 4-fingered app switching gesture as seen in the iPad, which is cumbersome to perform on the iPad and nearly impossible to do on the iPhone.
I hope this is true, the 4 finger switching does not work well on the iPhone, the phone is begging to be multi-tasked with!
My bag is always a mess, I found the perfect organizer.
