It is a slow weekend and I thought we could start something new - a weekend open thread - everything goes here: Gadhafi, Wiki Leaks, weather, weekend plans, rans(?), food, GMAT, economy, MBA, real estate, etc. Links, videos, and personal performances are encouraged

Well, I will start

1) I think the iPad 2 was a disappointment to many tech experts and buffs but at the same time, I feel it was good for the simple people like me because I won't look too dumb with my iPad 1 and won't be forced to switch to the latest version.

2) The list of the "Most Admired Companies" is out for this year

The macbook pro release ruined my month; I just bought the highest-end model 8 months ago and now the lowest-end model is almost faster than mine...

Ah... I bought an iPod for a friend as a present about 3 weeks (last summer) before the new one with cameras came out... that was kind of silly too.... and then Apple is the most admired company in the world... go figure.

Thanks for ruining my weekend...I got the high end one for Christmas. Still works like a charm though. It's my first MAC and I think I'm a believer.

My fiancee loves her Mac and I love using her Mac too. If ever given the chance I'll be switching.

My frustration lately has been the housing market.
We have finally decided to pull the trigger and everything says (and said) it was such a good time to buy a house (prices are low and interest rates are low too).... however, what I am finding is that the inventor of houses in the Seattle area is terrible. They are either overpriced (severely so) or really junky. The few decent that do get listed, disappear within a day or two after being listed and usually sell for full price!

We have accepted the fact that we won't get a deal on the house (that's right) and I would really like to move on with my life and get done with it but at the same time, it's been 2 weeks since a house that fits our needs got listed on the market. People just don't want to sell (understandably) and I am really tired of folks telling me that it is a buyer's market - it definitely is not behaving like one.

Oh yes, and foreclosure and short sales - they are a joke, and most of the time are either overpriced or if not, the bank wont' accept the offer. Sorry, just ranting...

I am getting really pissed at how slow the recruitment process is right now. Getting laid off took 30 minutes, but now - after interviews in the double figures and providing numerous work samples - as the preferred candidate it has taken another month to get the sign off for me to start.

It is meant to be inevitable, but the longer it drags on the more concerned I get. The 18 months out of business school have been probably the most strange, disheartening and largest learning experiences I have had. On the upside, it does make me some one less likely to be messed with going forward. Determination from being laid off could be the best thing to happen, even if the finances aren't.

Oh, and my dog took way too much interested in drunks coming back from Hoboken St Patrick's parade.
