It’s been a pretty eventful past couple of days, so I’ll just get down to business.

In case you haven’t looked outside yet, it started snowing again. Like a ridiculous amount. And then it stopped as abruptly as it started fifteen minutes later. This was around 8pm tonight. We’ve been experiencing some very strange weather in Vancouver these past couple of months, with the two massive snowfalls we had and the ongoing wind storms that are destroying the trees in Stanley Park, ripping holes in BC Place Stadium, and causing all sorts of other headaches. Mother Nature is finally punishing us for our horrible polluting ways. Damn those SUVs.

This week is a very busy week for tech-heads as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is taking place in Las Vegas, unveiling all sorts of electronic goodies for all the geeks in the audience. What’s more — as I’m sure many of you have already heard — Steve Jobs took the stage at MacWorld in San Francisco earlier today, and during his keynote speech, he announced the almighty Apple iPhone. It’s one beauty of a handset, but it’s a little big. That said, it’s got a whole lot of toys under that thin hood, including WiFi, 2 megapixel camera, Safari, iTunes, and a multi-touch 3.5-inch widescreen display.

Heading over to the other end of the nation (“nation” refering to the United States and not Canada, unfortunately) is the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. They have a whole bunch of concept cars and interesting ideas floating around, but the one that caught my eye — especially since so many people have been waiting for this car for such a long time — is the all-new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. Details are a little thin, but we know that it’ll rock a 2.0L turbocharged engine and a pretty darn aggressive-looking front end. After all, the hood has got both a vent and a scoop, and check out the size of that intercooler. Man alive.

Needless to say, it’s a pretty busy week for me. Maybe with this recent dump of snow, I’ll be able to force myself to work.
