Running out the door for an oil change today I noticed a little box wedged in the doorway, brought via our friends at UPS. Addressed to me from "Young America Corporation," my first thought was, "Hmm, I haven't ordered anything in weeks." The second thought, coming from the optimist in me, was "this is the perfect size for an iPod mini."

So I tear it open, and it's a 6 GB iPod mini. The hell?

    Dear Winner:

And to think, not one of those seven to ten bottle caps I submitted was paid for by yours truly. Thanks, generous co-workers! Now we can see who at work wants to buy this off of me; my 1 GB Shuffle is good enough.

The funny thing is they didn't even send me an email or letter saying that I won. Total surprise.

It is normal for the Find to open when you hit the apostrophe when you are reading text or something, but when you are typing like on a message board or sending mail the apostrophe key should type the apostrophe, otherwise you can never use any apostrophe...
