Tumms + Ice Cream = Baby Fomula Coupon?

Is it me or has data mining gone too far? Last night I was at Walgreens buying some stuff for my wife and I: Tumms, Ice Cream, and Candy Corn. Well, it looks like they have installed the same automated coupon machines that they have at King Soopers (the local Kroger chain) and lo and behold what comes up on the cupon? Baby formula.

So either they are getting our purchase records from Wal-Mart and offering a discount when I go on a midnight run, or they have figured out that Tumms + Ice Cream means a pregnant lady at home. Just... Bizzare.

FireFox 2 has SpellChecking!

Mozilla Firefox has released the RC1 release of their 2.0 product.

Why am I mentioning this? In of all places my blog? A blog I titled "...And They Shall Know Me By My Speling Errors?" Because they have integrated a spelling checker into their text area widget. Short red dots run under any wurd you misspell!

Does this still mean I will make spelling mistakes? Ewe betcha!
