Today's Writings in Three Places

- On E-Gear, Apple has agreed to give a $100 credit to any early adopter of the iPhone steamed about the recent $200 price cut. My coworker said her boyfriend, who got her one, wanted to use the $100 to buy a kayak, but unfortunately the credit is for the Apple Store only, and there's no iKayak yet. If there was, I'd totally get one. Also, the XM/Sirius merger is inching towards approval, and LG, sensing a long-from-over format war, has launched another dual Blu-ray/HD DVD player.

- My review of "3:10 to Yuma" is online at the Trend's site. All the pre-release buzz was positive, but apparently a lot of the published-on-Friday critics agreed with my middling assessment.

- And finally, my North Star column this week is on the David Petraeus and the surge, as today marks the demise of the "you really should wait for David Petraeus before you denounce the surge" argument, which never got in the way of the "the surge is definitely working" argument.
