Just saying

Nice bus. Shame if something happened to it: Herald sports writer John Boyle, attending the Super Bowl’s media day in New Jersey, notes that reporters were shown a promotional video about New Jersey on their bus trip from New York.

In the video, N.J. Gov. Chris Christie, R-Traffic Cone, assures the media safe passage back to New York, provided they stop with the fat jokes.

Breaking Glass: Google is nearly ready to roll out Glass, a wearable computer that displays the Internet in front of an eye on frames that can be fitted with prescription lenses.

After the problems Glass users will have with injuries caused by walking around watching the Internet, Google also plans Internet-enabled wheelchairs, crutches and neck braces.

Already generating buzz: Beekeepers in Vermont say the latest threat to bees is a tiny fly larvae that cause nerve damage and results in erratic jerky flight, “like a zombie.”

The beekeepers don’t know how to cure the disease but have already sold the movie rights for “Zombees!” to the producers of “Sharknado.”
