“La Palmera” Rivas looks unhappy after Israel Jiménez in Tigres’ defeat against arch-enemy Monterrey.
Top ranked Tigres was eliminated by #9 ranked and arch-rival Rayados de Monterrey in the Mexican Soccer League Quarterfinals. This is the third time in a row that Tigres is defeated by Monterrey in a playoff derby. More info.
Update May 13, 2013: Small corrections. Thanks to Arturito and Juan Carlos for pointing them out.
MONTERRY, Mexico — Faced with a two-goal deficit entering the final 30 minutes, Monterrey pulled off a comeback for the ages to win the CONCACAF Champions League crown for a record third consecutive time on Wednesday night.
Unbelievable. More info on CONCACAF.com.

I’m not one to make excuses, but my SXSW 2013 posts have been delayed due to unforeseen hard drive issues. However, I was watching a video of Bajofondo’s concert at Auditorium Shores this year, and lo-and-behold, there’s the back of my big head wearing my Rayados hat.
Sadly that’s an older hat. The newer one (as seen at ACL 2012) was lost in Indonesia.
This is what I said back when it was announced. I underestimated how much laptop usage time would be replaced by iPad usage time.
If you want to see what professional technology reporters, analysts, etc. said at the time, then check out this post by Asymco. It’s eye-opening. Summary: iPad is an overpriced, underpowered, crippled disappointment that will bankrupt Apple.
In reality, the iPad turned Apple into the biggest and most profitable computer maker in the world, destroyed the horrendous netbook market, forced Google to clone it, and MS to completely redesign the Windows UI for touch and start making their own hardware.
Shows you how much faith you should put in the opinion of “experts”.
Four classics for the price of one:
“The best way to predict the future is to invent it”
“Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born”
“If you don’t fail at least 90 percent of the time, you’re not aiming high enough.”
“People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.”
