Yesterday's video blog was about Mark Martin's first win in NASCAR in roughly four years when he got the checkered flag at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Joliet, Illinois back in April 2009. Well, a month later Martin got his second win of the season back in May 2009 at the Southern 500 race in Darlington, South Carolina.
This video contains the electrifying conclusion of this year's race in Darlington, with Mark Martin (the #5 car) taking the lead over fellow Hendrick Motorsports team mate Jimmie Johnson. This marks his second win at the Southern 500, … Read more

Back in April, Mark Martin scooped his first win in almost four years as he edged out Tony Stewart in the final laps of the Subway Fresh Fit 500. This win is also noteworthy is it was the first time a driver aged 50 or older won a Sprint Cup race … Read more
When I bought the Pre and openned a new account with Sprint, they offered me a 10% discount if bought two accessories. I wanted the Touchstone anyway, so I threw in some screen protectors and the discount covered those.
Palm has introduced some pretty slick new tech with the Touchstone charger. The kit comes with the Touchstone and another back plate.… Read more

In most sports youth is everything. Even in the world of autosports, youth seems to be a key to success. However, this past weekend auto racing veteran Mark Martin defied this notion by winning the LifeLock.com 400 race in Chicago.
Mark Martin was born in 1959 and his racing career has spanned some three decades, although he has never attained championship status. However, his victory alongside team mate Jeff Gordon at the 2009 LifeLock.com 400 marks his third victory of the season as race forerunners Jimmie Johnson and Greg Biffle ran out of fuel during the final laps … Read more
The Apple iPhone and other smartphones hitting the market are cool, but if you don't have a spare $200 in your wallet, and you can't afford the hefty monthly service fees, there are less expensive options that still offer some of the wireless Web at a much more affordable price tag.
These alternative phones may not be as sexy as the iPhone or the new Palm Pre. And the Internet service and applications will not be as slick as what you'll find on a full-fledged smartphone. But for many wireless subscribers, less expensive feature-phones and cheaper data … Read more
I would really like to carry one device. Ideally this would be the Palm Pre: phone, email, sms, internet, calendar, contacts, and media player. I listen to a lot of podcasts and music on my 30GB iPod classic right now, and it would be great to not carry it around anymore since I have the Pre. … Read more
After surveying Pre owners, Strategy Analytics has come up with one unanimousrequest: a touchscreen keyboard. In my first hardware review of the Pre, I commented on my distaste for slider phones.

The question is: how easy is it for Palm to include an onscreen keyboard on the Pre? WebOS wasn't originally designed to work with a touch keyboard, but this could probably be worked around. But is … Read more
