Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring…

Cellular, modular, interactiveodular…

What could possibly go wrong?

Valentines Day in South Korea means chocolates, romantic dinners and a high-tech mobile phone device that can secretly check the passion in the voice of a lover.

The “Love Detector” service from mobile operator KTF uses technology that is supposed to analyze voice patterns to see if a lover is speaking honestly and with affection.

“We created this service because we thought people would want to know what others were feeling about them,” said Ahn Hee-jung, a KTF official.

Users who speak by pointing their mobile phones at themselves for video conferences can see a “love meter” bar on the screen of their handset during a conversation.

They later receive an analysis of the conversation delivered through text message that breaks down the amount of affection, surprise, concentration and honesty of the other speaker.

Jeez, if anyone other than the shadowy and mysterious Codename V. called me on one of those things, I’d end up depressed for the rest of the day. I think I’ll just stick with my Treo, thanks.

It’s The Lack Of Principles That Bothers Him Most Of All…

Hey, even Tom DeLay has his standards. Oh wait, no he doesn’t:

The disgraced Tom DeLay is now stumping for McCain in Arizona. DeLay once said that he “might have to sit this one out” if McCain won the nomination.

Flashback . . .

During a private luncheon with Republican chiefs of staff on Capitol Hill, DeLay – who has criticized McCain for years – stepped up his attacks in the wake of the senator’s reemergence as a top presidential contender. DeLay said McCain has no principles and indicated he would not endorse the senator if he won the GOP primary. “If McCain gets the nomination, I don’t know what I’ll do,” DeLay said at the Capitol Hill Club, according to a source in the room. “I might have to sit this one out.”

He added that a McCain triumph for the GOP nomination would destroy the Republican Party.

Please, Tom, by all means, carry on – your party needs you.

Friday Quote & Cat Blogging

This week’s quote is from Judas Kiss, which I quite frankly remember nothing about. However, judging by this quote I have to assume that it is completely frickin’ awesome.

I am the most available female alien in the entire galaxy. You don’t have to concoct a silly plan to see me naked.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s cats…


My friend Jed’s cat, the imperious and stately Michi.
