One man’s meat

One man’s meat is another’s ham? Well, you do have to be careful, eating while in the road, and for those who follow IMG_0872.jpgstricter knish-L.jpgdietary regimes, it’s sometime’s a challenge. The same challenge applies when you’re on a long trip and develop a yen for comfort food, the kind of concoction grandma (yours perhaps, certainly not mine) might make. Well, if you’re from New York or fly through New York, there’s a new New York company that tries to satisfy even the most orthodox of tastes: Kosher Vending Industries. The firm has just signed a contract to put four devices that sell kosher delicacies such as knishes (a sort of dumpling, only more so; see above right) in New York City airports. It will have four at JFK and two in Newark airport.inside_CP.gif Of the four at JFK, two will specialize in a treat that most people like regardless of faith: Nathan’s Famous hot dogs. (Yes, they’re famous, but that’s also part of the name). The vending machines have been in places like hospitals for a while, and one eagle-eyed medical blogger pointed out that the machines have the notice “Hot Nosh 24/6” on them. Does this mean they shut down for the Sabbath? Nope, says the company. They’re just being funny.
On a serious note: since many kosher items meet Muslim standards for food, perhaps this will be a small step (or a big gulp) in the right direction.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
