TiVo expanding into the Taiwanese market
I sure miss my TiVo, though admittedly, there's really nothing worth watching here amongst the 100-odd channels.

Apparently, "Stuyvesant loves lopsided geniuses"
Article in The New York Times about how they weigh the test results for the Stuy admission. Basically, if you scored perfectly on either the math or verbal portion, you can totally tank the other and still make it. I have no problem with this. The person who's screaming bloody murder because he couldn't get in with a 97th in math and a 92nd in verbal has to remember that while a 97th percentile is a decent score, a 92nd is pretty damn bad score out of over 26,000 students. Decent + bad = mediocre = no Stuy for you. Perfect + horrible = you squeeze into Stuy by the skin of your teeth, but at least we know you are exceptional in something, other than being so-so in some things and even less than so-so in other things..
