» Rudy Giuliani spends an hour with Tim Russert this Sunday on Meet the Press. This is a critical interview for Giuliani as he is trailing in the first three states and is quickly losing his frontrunner status.

» JetBlue is testing free WiFi on one of its planes starting next weekend. If the experiment is a success, they plan on rolling it out to all of their planes. They've named the first plane BetaBlue. Raise your hand if you would like to get on a plane with "beta" in its name.

» Ben Stein is behind a fascinating new documentary about the cone of silence that exists in public circles regarding critiques of or alternatives to Darwin's theory. The film is called Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. You can watch the extended trailer here, along with other versions. They are very well done and worth a few minutes of your time, whereas most video on the web is, well, not. The movie opens in February.
