Ivy Bridge 22nm of Intel's Finest CPU action

I don't own one of Intel's latest 22nm Tri-gate transistor Ivy Bridge HD4000 chips, but I just helped my brewing partner build two computers based on the i3 iterations of that chip flavor. Don't leave your discrete graphics behind.... While the CPU is beefy for all sorts of action, its lowly integrated HD4000 GPU setup leaves much to be desired. A low end discrete graphics card will run circles around intel's latest attempt at fusing GPU's with its (i) series CPU's.

Taj Palace Indian Food (Amazing)

My future wife/ girlfriend and I went out to eat at this Indian restaurant called Taj Palace. The food was absolutely amazing. It was by far the best Indian food I have ever had.

We ate garlic and spinach naan (both were excellent). The 2 star spicy Saag Aloo was so tasty we were both blown away by the intensely delicious flavors. The Mango Lassi was pure delight (made of their home-made yogurt and mango), it was smooth, cool and bursting with bliss inducing power. The prices are reasonable too.

After two years Apple finally updated their most popular iPod, the iPod Touch. Its thinner, lighter, faster, and has a much better camera this time around. The new Touch even includes a wrist strap retainer cleverly built into the thin body that clicks to hide or rise for use. Perhaps the coolest feature included on this iPod is Siri. It also sports a new 4inch 1134 x 640 display! They even throw in a set of the newly designed EarPods!  Can this combination of new features create a worthy off contract iPhone alternative over wifi ? Yes! Will I buy one? NO
