Pick Up An Extra K
Be prepared for the day when your neighbor tries to impress you with his 4K television or computer display. Get the new 5K iMac. Starts at only $1,999. But with that extra K, I'm sure you'll be wanting to pack on some additional GHz, am I right? An extra two-tenths of a GHz will cost you only $300, which comes out to only $1,500/GHz. Not bad at all when you consider that our parents and grandparents made it through life with only Hz, KHz, and MHz. How did they do it?
Herr Hertz, or just Hz to his friends.
At the other end of the scale there is the MacBook Air which starts at only $899 and has a 1366 x 768 display. The $899 Air comes down to $377.73/lb. The base 5K iMac is $95.19/lb.

CCAC Advances DHS Welcome Sign
In today's meeting, the Community and Cultural Affairs Commission voted to place the first new entry sign at 18th and Palm, shown above. There is no electricity at that spot, as far as I can determine, but the CCAC will be looking into solar power for the lighting. The new sign will be a rock with engraved lettering, not another one of those little green signs.
The CCAC has a special meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 8:30 AM at Low Desert Rock Supply, 65005 Dillon Rd, Desert Hot Springs where entry signs will again be the agenda item.

NYC Music Map
TouchTunes released data from their e-jukeboxes in New York City and the Wall Street Journal mapped it by zip code. Zoom out on that map to see the entire city. The Rolling Stones, Romeo Santos, and Vicente Fernandez are the big ones. Take a look at Staten Island. It's got the only zip codes that prefer Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, Eminem and the Zac Brown Band. Two zip codes on the north shore of Queens are the only two for Metallica. There's one Beatles zip code along the East River in Queens. One for Marvin Gaye in Harlem. And one for Johnny Cash at the northern extreme of The Bronx.
