Farewell Mr. Kim

I've been wanting to talk about James Kim for the last few days but the words didn't come. Previous to his work at CNET.com, he appeared on many of my favorite tech shows (many of them you will remember me mentioning before) including Call For Help and The Screensavers on ZDTV/TechTV. I keep thinking that there are few people we turn to for advice and fewer when purchasing computer parts. After getting much advice, you rely on and respect that voice as well as personally connect to the content. For this reason, I find myself really emotional at the news of his body being discovered today. He leaves behind a beautiful family and my hopes, wishes and condolences go out to them.

What a sad story. Thankfully his wife and kids were found, it could have had a much sadder ending.

What a tragic story, my heart goes out to his family. It is amazing in this day and age how that can happen.

It's hard to believe that making a wrong turn can lead to tradegy...It is really sad and a good reason to be prepared...I keep extra food and water and other supplies in my trunk. I pray that I never need them, but they are there in an emergency...My heart breaks for his wife and kids....
