Here’s my latest Week in Electronics Retail Crime column for Dealerscope.
This awful Vikings season hit another new low Sunday when Adrian Peterson injured both his ACL and MCL. He’ll hopefully be back for the start of 2011, but who knows if he’ll still be the same player.
Then there’s the weird report from Peter King, on NBC Sunday night, that a Vikings stadium is all but a done deal in Minnesota. There was nothing about it the next day in either Twin Cities paper, and there are numerous details missing- site? Funding source? Roof or no roof?
It wouldn’t surprise me if it got done this year, but I just don’t see how it’s any closer now than it was last week.

Happy Hanukkah from Conan:
I review the Steve Jobs book in one of the last articles on E-Gear.com before it becomes Technology Tell.
