Geek Smack Crap for Halloween
One of my favorite items this year, the Skeleton Flamingos remind me of the days of Miami Vice. Except dead.
Adding decor to your front yard during October is important. Fake webs are nice, but why not some CREEPY CLOTH to cover gates or fencing.
If you need skeletons to come up from the ground, then try the Sinister Skull

Geek Smack! Topic of the Week: Apple Announcement – Post Cards, 4S, iCloud
It was a long g Apple event. The first one for Tim Cook. Although the event wasn’t fast paced, it was full of information. A new Phone, updated iPod nano and touch, new programs and even a FREE iPhone (with contract).
We now can meet up with friends we didn’t know were around, take a picture and send it as a post card, add iCloud, dictate, and talk to your new computer assistant, Siri. You can also get a new phone with “Worldwide access”. But the 4S is faster and contains the A5 processor.
We get to see a new 64 GB model as the usher in the PC-less era. All on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. No 4G.
