Skywatch: I've never had so much fun as I've had with the "skywatch" app on my smart phone. The app was free and I love it. According to Geoff Simon:

Target: while shopping for that secret ingredient tonight at the Target store down the street, I was struck by how empty many of the shelves were. It was quite remarkable to say the least and it's hard to suggest it's not due the recent headline stories about Chinese flu being out of control. Whatever you stocked up during the original surge, you may want to re-inventory where you stand. Just saying.
