    That little boy who helped his classmates is a true hero. I am glad they put so much focus on him.

  2. Very frustrating that these Olympic games are in China. Why are we lending credence to such an oppressive regime?

    if this is a geek spot, please tell me what laptop with wireless internet should i get…?

    Look beyond the Olympic games and research how freedom is being eradicated across China. the Communist Government is constantly repressing the Chinese people. This is all propoganda for a totalitarian state that would not even allow your blog to be seen in China.

  5. craver – I am partial to the mac, so personally, if I were to get a laptop with wireless abilities it would be a MacBook or MacBook pro. There are of course rumors about a new design coming soon so I would suggest to wait a few weeks and see what the new laptops can offer. Apple.com 🙂

    Olimpics Beijing is a golden opportunity to let the Chinese people know that it’s time the stood up for their rights in the correct sense of the word. The whole world is watching. We all know that there is no democracy in China which means no human rights.

  14. Agree with some of commenters above. Why are we endorsing such a farce? Don’t we know what is happening behind the curtains. The human and environmental tragedies. These games strangely remind me of the Berlin games in 1936. Instead we should be supporting manifestations such as these:
