thanks tv!

Currently I watch TV about once a week, so I don't see many commercials. One advantage is that every commercial I actually see is usually new (to me), and usually funny (to me). Sometimes they're even useful. Last night Nic and I were watching Amazing Race, and an iPhone commercial came on that showed someone using an app to track calorie intake -- she was paying closer attention than I was, and caught the name of it when I said "oh wow, I want that." Found and installed it in about 5 minutes (it's called "Lose It!"), and it's my new favorite toy. I know there are several online applications that let you do the same thing, but having it on my iPhone means that I'll actually use it regularly. Sweeeeeet.
