The Daily Ping

Apple did not consult with us when they named Ping, Ping.

Annoyed with Amazon. And Best Buy.

Saturday: looked at the red 4gb Sansa Clip Plus mp3 player. Amazon had it for $39.99. Best Buy also did.

Sunday: went to Best Buy to see one in person. In-store price was $49.99, but figured it was just typical Best Buy trickery. Did Not Buy.

Got home, checked price on BestBuy.com. $49.99. Crap. They raised the price on me.

Checked Amazon.com. $48.24. MOTHERF’ER, Amazon did it too!

Clearly, they’re tracking my movements. So I’m going to hold real, real still until the price drops again.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
