iPod Touch review: It satisfies most iPhone envy

1 day

How do you get as close to owning an iPhone without actually owning an iPhone? It's not really a trick question?? you already?know the answer if you're reading this review.

The fifth-generation iPod Touch borrows a bit from each of the recent iPhone generations. It has a display identical to the one found on the iPhone 5, guts equivalent to some of those in the iPhone 4S,?and?a camera system similar???but significantly superior? to what's crammed inside the iPhone 4. It runs a full-fledged version of iOS 6, the latest version of the mobile operating system used by the iPhone (and iPad, for that matter).

While all of these details are fine and dandy, it isn't until you handle the new Touch that you fully realize just how mind-boggling the device is. At six millimeters?? just under a quarter inch?? thin, the Touch?makes even the ridiculously airy iPhone 5 feel chubby. The Touch?looks like it should be fragile, as if you need to cradle it?gently while wearing soft, white gloves, yet it's anything but delicate. Its?anodized?aluminum back is solid, reassuring. You might feel the insane urge to bend or throw the gadget, just to see if it can take the abuse. (I suggest avoiding?succumbing?to this strange desire though. No one likes a shattered display.)

The fifth-generation Touch is the first to have a built-in flash and auto-focus system. These features???combined with a 5-megapixel camera, Apple's A5?processor, and a pile of software improvements, not to mention Wi-Fi connectivity to iCloud, email and a bunch of other ways to share photos ? mean that you may just toss out your old?point-and-shoot camera. Don't be surprised if a friend with an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 takes crisper snapshots though, because those camera systems have an edge on the one in the new?Touch.

The battery life on the Touch seems to be excellent. Apple suggests that the device will offer up to 40 hours of music playback on a full charge and I haven't managed to drain it over two days of moderate usage. Do keep in mind that you'll need the included Lightning cable to charge the new Touch (and that your spare 30-pin cables are useless here.)

The Touch has a quirky little addition: A little color-matched?lanyard. If you press a button?on the lower back of the Touch, it pops out, and that's where you attach the wrist strap. If you don't care about the little loop, you can ignore it completely, but if you do want to use it, it's there.

NBC News tech?editor Wilson Rothman and photographer Jim Seida both love the loop, for its design and for its iPod-saving function when you're, say, leaning off of a tall building to take a picture. But?I can't quite bring myself to use it, mainly for fear that I'll accidentally fling the Touch across a room or somehow swing it with enough force to make the loop slide off its little button. (When Rothman and Seida tried to unhook it through aggressive use, it stayed fast.)

So, the big question, is the iPod Touch worth its?price tag? The new Touch starts at $299, while the?iPhone 5 ? under an expensive 2-year carrier contract ? starts at $199 (with the iPhone 4S at a mere $99).?

The new Touch is a powerful, gorgeous little beast. No other device will get you this close to an iPhone straight out of the box. It doesn't require contracts, it won't come with monthly bills, and did I mention it's so easy on the eyes that you might feel a bit of lust?

But the Touch doesn't have built-in GPS capabilities (beyond Wi-Fi-based location guessing), it doesn't have a camera?quite?as great?as the one in the iPhone 5, it doesn't have Apple's latest A6 processor (meaning that it'll struggle to keep up with iOS updates sooner than its more powerful iPhone siblings), and it's priced a bit steeply.

But if you are stuck on a dumbphone or enjoy your Android but want to know how the other half lives, ?this all-in-one media-player-slash-basic-point-and-shoot-slash-kinda-sorta-tablet will?do the job.?

Want more tech news?or interesting?links? You'll get plenty of both if you keep up with Rosa Golijan, the writer of this post, by following her on?Twitter, subscribing to her?Facebook?posts,?or circling her?on?Google+.

Hearing set in Wash. state in Afghan rampage case

(AP) ? A hearing for the soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians in March has been set for Nov. 5 at an Army base in Washington state, with villagers expected to testify by video from Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.

Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is scheduled to appear at Joint Base Lewis-McChord for the pretrial hearing, which is expected to last two weeks, Lt. Col. Gary Dangerfield said. The second week of the hearing will be held in the evening so villagers can testify during daylight hours in Afghanistan.

Defense lawyer John Henry Browne plans to fly to Afghanistan to cross-examine the witnesses while other members of the defense team remain at Lewis-McChord, south of Seattle.

The hearing under Article 32 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice will determine whether Bales, of Lake Tapps, faces court-martial.

Bales faces 16 counts of premeditated murder; six counts of attempted murder; seven counts of assault; and one count each of possessing steroids, using steroids, destroying a laptop, burning bodies, and using alcohol. He's being held in a military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

Investigators say Bales was armed with a 9 mm pistol and M-4 rifle outfitted with a grenade launcher when he walked off his base in southern Afghanistan March 11 and went on a nighttime killing spree.

Browne told The Seattle Times ( more than 10 Afghans could be called as witnesses, and it has been difficult to contact some of them. Browne said the hearing is important because it may be his only opportunity to question the witnesses.

Bales could face the death penalty if convicted.

Browne told The Associated Press Friday that neither the prosecution nor defense has received forensic evidence reports from Afghanistan.

"The prosecutors told us they haven't received any of the DNA, any of those reports from the crime lab" he said. "They tell us we will have them by Oct. 26."

Browne said there's still a possibility the November hearing could be delayed, but he was confident that it would likely proceed as scheduled. Browne said he would probably be in Afghanistan for the preliminary hearing, while his co-counsel, Emma Scanlan, would be at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

"A lot of those male Afghanistan witnesses literally won't talk to a woman," Browne said.

Browne has said his client suffered a traumatic incident during his second tour in Iraq that triggered "tremendous depression." Browne also has said Bales suffered from persistent headaches and flashbacks of war scenes after his multiple combat tours, and has only a sketchy memory of the night of the shootings.

Bales grew up in suburban Cincinnati where he attended high school, then went to Ohio State University from 1993 to 1996, though he didn't graduate. He joined the Army two months after 9/11, after a Florida investment business failed and after he worked with a string of securities operations.

Bales deployed three times to Iraq before being sent to Afghanistan with the 3rd Stryker Brigade. He was at a Special Forces outpost at the time of the killings.

Federal deficit tops $1 trillion for fourth year

WASHINGTON (AP) ? The federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion for a fourth straight year. But a modest improvement in economic growth helped narrow the gap by $207 billion compared with last year.

The Treasury Department said Friday that the deficit for the 2012 budget year totaled $1.1 trillion. Tax revenue rose 6.4 percent from last year to more than $2.4 trillion, helping contain the deficit.

The government's revenue rose as more people got jobs and received income. Corporations also contributed more tax revenue than in 2011.

Government spending fell 1.7 percent to $3.5 trillion. The decline reflected, in part, less defense spending as U.S. military involvement in Iraq was winding down.

Barack Obama's presidency has now coincided with four straight $1 trillion-plus annual budget deficits ? the first in history and an issue in an election campaign that ends in 3? weeks.

Obama's Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, contends that Obama failed to achieve a pledge to halve the deficit he inherited by the end of his first term.

When Obama took office in January 2009, the Congressional Budget Office forecast that the deficit for that year would total $1.2 trillion. It ended up at a record $1.41 trillion.

The increase was due, in part, to higher government spending to fight the worst recession since the Great Depression. Tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan contributed to the deficits.

The budget gaps in 2010 and 2011 were slightly lower than the 2009 deficit as a gradually strengthening economy generated more tax revenue. But the deficits still exceeded $1 trillion.

Obama is campaigning for a second term with a pledge to cut deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. He says he would do so by ending the Bush-era income tax cuts for higher-income Americans and by restraining the growth of spending.

Romney has said he would cut spending growth to help narrow the budget gap. He would cap spending at 20 percent of the economy by 2016. Spending in 2012 accounted for about 23 percent of the economy.

The government borrowed about 31 cents of every dollar it spent in 2012. The string of $1 trillion-plus deficits has driven the national debt above $16 trillion. The magnitude of that figure has intensified debate in Congress over spending and taxes but little movement toward compromise.

Many fear the budget deadlock will send the economy over a "fiscal cliff" next year, when tax increases and deep spending cuts will take effect unless a budget deal is reached.

Obama wants to eliminate the income tax cuts for families that make more than $250,000.

Republicans in Congress and Romney have resisted. They argue that with the economy still weak, the government should not be raising anyone's taxes.

Congress may address the budget crisis during a lame-duck session of Congress after the November elections.

7 Tips To Gain More Twitter Followers - Affiliate Marketing Guides

Blog owners, online marketers, and businesses set up Twitter accounts for different reasons. Mainly however, they use it for brand awareness, exposure, and attract traffic to their websites. But in order to effectively use Twitter for these purposes, you have to gain more followers.

Getting your first hundred followers is already hard enough. What more if you?re aiming for hundreds or thousands more? This does not mean it?s impossible though. Many business owners and blog writers have successfully grown their Twitter followers with a few simple strategies.

Promote your Twitter throughout the web. Advertise it on your website with a badge. Promote it on your other social networks like Facebook and Google+. When writing a guest post, link wheel, or any content outside of your blog or website, ask people to follow you on Twitter by posting a direct link from the author?s by-line. Some blogs even allow you to leave comments using your Twitter username; use this opportunity to further expose your account. If you participate in forums, link to your Twitter from your profile.

Optimize your Twitter profile. Sign up for a username based on the brand you want to be known for. It could be your real name, business name, or a product you?re marketing. Create a short but concise description of your business on the profile description and don?t forget to link back to your website!

Join #FollowFriday or #FF. As soon as the clock strikes midnight and it becomes officially Friday on your time zone, use these two hashtags on Twitter along with a tag related to your niche (i.e. #Android, #Technology, #Blogging). Promote your own Twitter profile as well as others who belong to the same niche by mentioning them in the tweet. Apart from tweeting your own recommendations, retweeting other people?s #FF tweets will also help. That?s because they are likely to return the favor and thus, tweet your recommendations to their followers.

Use hashtags. Each time you tweet, use an appropriate hashtag. If you are sharing an article you wrote about internet providers for example, you can use the #IP and #internet as hashtags. Hashtags make it easier for people to find Twitter users who share or cater to their interest.

Stand out. Each tweetis restricted to 140 characters ? including spaces. Use this limit to establish your online personality. Be fun, witty, and controversial all at the same time. Learn to get your message across in as little as 140 characters. You want to be promotional but at the same time, not sound like a spam bot.

The ?follow back? strategy. Add people who blatantly declare that they follow back users who follow them. They usually use the hasthag #TeamFollowBack. You can also use auto-follow softwares to find people who share the same interests. These programs are designed to automatically follow them. In turn, they will likely follow you back.

Buy your followers. There are numerous Twitter marketing firms that sell user lists for a price.

RBS sets milestone with upbeat Direct Line flotation

LONDON (Reuters) - Shares in Direct Line set a premium on their stock market debut on Thursday, marking a milestone for parent Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) which needed a successful float of the insurance unit as a key part of its recovery plan.

Strong demand from private investors helped RBS raise 787 million pounds through the sale of 30 percent of Direct Line's shares at 175 pence per share, near the middle of the initially stated range and valuing the business at 2.6 billion pounds ($4.2 billion).

The shares were trading at 184p by 10:00 a.m., a firm performance which also highlighted a recovery in Europe's IPO markets from an extended hiatus.

In the same sector, Germany's third-biggest insurer Talanx AG has also performed well after its recent IPO, with its shares trading 8 percent ahead of the offer price.

RBS is selling Direct Line - whose frequent TV adverts have made its four-wheeled red phone motif a well-known corporate symbol - in return for winning approval from European Union (EU) regulators for a bailout during the 2008 financial crisis that left it 82 percent state-owned.

The bank said on Thursday the sale marked the next important step in its recovery plan, having earlier this year finished paying back emergency loans to Britain and the United States.

It is also poised to exit a government insurance scheme designed to protect its weakest assets later this year.

RBS has said it plans a three-stage sale of Direct Line under which further share sales will take place next year and in 2014. Under the EU directive, it must sell more than 50 percent by the end of 2013 and the rest of its shares a year later.

The successful flotation defies recent concerns that investor appetite would be damaged by a British anti-trust inquiry into allegations of over-charging in the car insurance market in which Direct Line is a major player.


The sale was boosted by strong demand from retail investors, who have been starved of opportunities to participate in large-scale IPOs in recent years. The Direct Line IPO was the biggest retail share offering in Britain since money manager Hargreaves Lansdown Plc five years ago.

On a conference call with reporters, Direct Line Chief Executive Paul Geddis said retail investors had purchased between 5,000 pounds and 6,000 pounds worth of shares on average and had taken up 15 percent of the shares sold.

Geddis added that the offering had been "comfortably oversubscribed".

London Stock Exchange Chief Executive Xavier Rolet said the level of retail interest in the issue had underlined the appeal of London's equity markets to private investors.

Brokerages had on Tuesday reported a surge in late demand for the shares from private investors, with Redmayne-Bentley for instance saying orders had almost doubled since the weekend.

RBS had been under pressure to secure a good price for the business, with taxpayers sitting on a loss of 21 billion pounds after Britain pumped in 45 billion to rescue the bank.

Analyst Eamonn Flanagan at brokerage Shore Capital said the price for Direct Line stock was a "reasonable outcome", although the company's value is below the cut-off point of about 3 billion pounds for membership of Britain's elite FTSE 100 index.

The price was near the middle of the 160 to 195 pence range set by RBS when it launched the IPO on September 28.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley ran the Direct Line offering, acting as joint bookrunners along with UBS. They are in line to share fees of as much as 17.4 million pounds with the other eight banks involved in the institutional portion of the share sale.

RBS sold 450 million Direct Line shares in the offer, representing 30 percent of the business, with a 15 percent over-allotment option.

Montclair Township Council Conference Meeting: Edgemont Pond ...

The Montclair Township Council

The Montclair Township Council met for over three hours in its October 9 conference meeting to discuss a laundry list of topics while preparing its agenda for its October 16 regular meeting.? While a small step was taken in moving toward progress on the rebuilding of the wall of the pond at Edgemont Park, the council moved swiftly to decide on First Night 2013?There?isn?t?going to be one.

Fourth Ward Councilor Ren?e Baskerville recommended skipping First Night this coming New Year?s Eve in a routine report from the Council Municipal Services and Communication Subcommittee. Dr. Baskerville reported how Township Recreation and Cultural Affairs Director Pat Breschka had looked into sharing First Night with an adjacent municipality, given the popularity of First Night with non-residents. ?It had become apparent that other towns had no interest in the idea, especially when the tough economy reduced the number of New Jersey municipalities hosting a First Night to five (down from 107) with the closest municipality, Morristown, too far to collaborate with Montclair in a New Year?s Eve celebration. Dr. Baskerville found so few venues in town willing to donate space that she recommended holding the festival in alternate years and finding non-profit groups to stage them. Mayor Robert Jackson agreed, as did Deputy Mayor Robert Russo.

?It seems like a lot of folks around town do come,? Deputy Mayor Russo said, ?but there are so few coming, and the resources are so limited, that it?s probably time for us to not do something at this late date that?s not going to be successful and in the tradition of Montclair.?? He suggested that a hiatus could make for a much more successful First Night for 2014.

The Edgemont Park pond issue took center stage in light of Township Manager Marc Dashield?s push to pass a negotiated contract for dredging the pond and rebuilding the retaining wall.? Dashield has not yet found a bidder for the projected, budgeted at $800,000 from a Green Acres grant.? An earlier hope to present such a contract for the October 2 regular meeting had failed.? He is currently negotiating with two prospective bidders.

Tom Nussbaum of Friends of Edgemont Park, a group that helps with the park?s upkeep, expressed disappointment with the township?s inability to get a bidder for the amount of the grant or revise its plans to find a bidder willing to do the project for $800,000 but added that his group supported the council?s ongoing efforts to make it work.? However, he had his doubts.

?Given our experience with the previous dredging project, and the currently collapsing walls, we are gravely concerned that the project has adequate oversight so that all aspects of the project are completed on time within specifications and with minimum impact on the use of the park,? he said.

Township Engineer Kimberli Craft and Community Services Director Steve Wood told the council that replacing the wall must take precedence over dredging due to its eminent collapse.? A partial dredging would be done instead, with possible recycling of the dredged mud into the northwestern corner of the park to level the ground, saving the cost of carting away the dredged material.

?The bottom line is that, if the wall has to be done, then the dredging is the thing that needs to be reduced,? Craft said.

?It?s a million-dollar project,? Wood said of the wall construction and dredging.? ?We have $800,000.? We bid every time, it keeps coming in the same.? It wasn?t an anomaly that we had that cost.?? He concurred with Craft that a new retaining wall was more necessary, and that dredging is more of a maintenance issue.? The wall being proposed, Wood added, would be a more permanent fix for the pond than the previous wall, which Wood said was improperly constructed.

Councilor-at-Large Rich McMahon noted that the west side of the pond?s wall looked to be in better shape than the east side, and he suggested that the project merely replace the worse half. Wood countered that taking apart a bad section of the wall could have an effect on a better section and cause that to be replaced, with the cycle repeating itself. ?You?d just be chasing your tail,? he said.

The discussion of the poor workmanship led Mayor Jackson to ruminate on the township?s historically bad record with capital projects.? He expressed a desire to properly manage this time the construction of a pond wall that can stand up to water.? He wanted to avoid the possibility of future dredging contractors complaining that the builders of the wall ?didn?t know what they were doing.?

Craft and Wood later explained their inspection of local streets and curbs and their prioritization of which streets and curbs need redoing the most. The number of deteriorating streets, Craft reported, stands at 28.4 percent of all streets today compared to 26.9 percent in 1999.? Wood advocated a dedicated amount of founding going forward to keep the street infrastructure up to par.

Also, Planning Director Janice Talley said discussed the wishes of CentroVerde?s developers to provide affordable housing off-site to be ?realistic? and be timed to the development of the market-rate units, suggesting that CentroVerde finds it more beneficial to produce affordable housing in the First and Second Wards, which both lack such housing in significant numbers.? While Deputy Mayor Russo thought the amendment to the plan would help those wards commit to a fairer share of affordable housing, Dr. Baskerville said that affordable housing at the DCH site, where CentroVerde will be built, makes more sense due to its proximity to Montclair Center and mass transit for affordable-housing residents who may not have cars.

Among other issues, Township Attorney Ira Karasick reported that the liquor license charges against Park Sports bar owner Jeffrey Melnikoff had been narrowed down to three, and that the October 11 hearing will be devoted to at least half an hour to assessing the penalty, which will be approved by a majority of a quorum of those councilors present.? Residents may offer public comment but will not have input on the penalty decisions.? The issue was discussed further in executive session, after the public portion of the meeting.

Turn A Frown Around (TAFA) Foundation co-founder Drew Horn (left) and Montclair State University student Chelsea Durocher. Both were at the Montclair Township Council October 9 meeting to promote a TAFA fundraiser on the MSU campus.

There was also some light entertainment at the meeting from Drew Horn of the Turn a Frown Around Foundation (TAFA), who offered a funny depiction of how his organization brings companionship and comedy to residents of nursing homes and psychiatric patients, and he asked the council to get behind TAFA?s efforts in Montclair.? TAFA is hosting a ?Wacky Walkathon? celebration at the recreational center gym at Montclair State University to raise money for its efforts, where Mayor Jackson is scheduled to appear.

Parental bonding makes for happy, stable child

ScienceDaily (Oct. 11, 2012) ? Parents: Want to help ensure your children turn out to be happy and socially well adjusted? Bond with them when they are infants.

That's the message from a study by the University of Iowa, which found that infants who have a close, intimate relationship with a parent are less likely to be troubled, aggressive or experience other emotional and behavioral problems when they reach school age. Surprisingly, the researchers found that a young child needs to feel particularly secure with only one parent to reap the benefits of stable emotions and behavior, and that being attached to dad is just as helpful as being close to mom.

The study bolsters the still-debated role of the influence that a parent can exercise at the earliest stages in a child's mental and emotional development, the authors contend in the paper, published in the journal Child Development.

"There is a really important period when a mother or a father should form a secure relationship with their child, and that is during the first two years of life. That period appears to be critical to the child's social and emotional development," says Sanghag Kim, a post-doctoral researcher in psychology at the UI who collaborated with UI psychology professor Grazyna Kochanska on the study. "At least one parent should make that investment."

The researchers assessed the relationship of 102 infants (15 months old) with a parent and then followed up with 86 of them when they reached age 8. Separate surveys of the parents and the child were taken at that time. The infants and parents were drawn from a broad spectrum of income, education, and race. All the couples were heterosexual.

The authors also solicited feedback from teachers about the children, which ranged from concerns about inner emotions, such as worry or sadness, to more outward displays, such as disobedience and aggression. Interestingly, the children's reports and their teachers' impressions were similar; yet they differed, sometimes greatly, from the parents' evaluations.

"Parents and teachers have different perspectives," Kim explains. "They observe children in different contexts and circumstances. That is why we collected data from many informants who know the child."

The researchers were surprised to find out that infants who had felt attached to both parents did not enjoy additional mental and emotional advantages into childhood, compared to those who had been close to one parent. The UI psychologists' best explanation is that a warm, secure, and positive bond with at least one primary caregiver may be enough to meet the child's need for security and to provide a solid foundation for development. Other studies have contended that being secure with both parents can have additional advantages; this study, however, checked in with the children when they were older and their outcomes could be more fully measured than those surveyed in previous work, the Iowa researchers said.

The study appears to be good news for single mothers and stay-at-home dads, two marked parenting shifts that are defining this generation. Kim says the study shows that either parent can serve as a secure, attachment figure for the infant, thus providing the closeness and support to promote the child's healthy emotional growth.

"Some people think the father is not good enough to be the primary caregiver," says Kim, who earned his doctorate in sociology at the UI last year. "Our data show otherwise."

The study did not directly sample single mothers, as all families included two parents. Still, the finding that one parent can provide the tight bond and emotional dividends as two parents "is a good sign," Kim says, that should be studied further.

On the other end, the study showed that infants who had not felt secure with either parent were more likely to report worries, fears, and aggression when they reached school age. While the trend was clear, the Iowa researchers said, they cautioned that other reasons may explain those children's difficulties. Also, they note, that all children fell into what psychologists would consider a normal development range, largely without clinically significant problems.

Kochanska, the paper's corresponding author, says the study was inspired by the attachment theory, a key approach in the field of social and emotional development. She and colleagues have conducted several studies examining the long-term implications of a child's early relationship with the parents.

Some questions need further study. Among them is whether day-care providers can serve as effective care givers, providing emotional support for infants, or whether they interfere with an infant's ability to bond with the parents.

The National Institutes of Health funded the research.

(AP) ? After a season filled with dramatic comebacks and memorable endings, the Oakland Athletics now expect the unexpected.

Two runs down and three outs away from their season ending, the A's staged their most magical finish yet.

Seth Smith hit a game-tying two-run double off closer Jose Valverde in the ninth inning and Coco Crisp capped Oakland's rally with a two-out RBI single as the A's staved off elimination for a second straight night with a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 4 Wednesday night.

"We've heard a lot of people say we're not smart enough to know when to lose a game like most people do," said Josh Reddick, who started the rally with a single. "We've been battling till the 27th out all year and we're not going to stop now."

The A's rode a major league-leading 14 walkoff wins in the regular season to an improbable AL West title. Those paled in comparison to No. 15, which set up a win-or-go-home Game 5 against Justin Verlander and the Tigers.

Reddick led off the ninth with a single just under the glove of diving second baseman Omar Infante. Josh Donaldson followed with a double off the wall in left-center and both runners scored on Smith's double.

"There's a confidence," manager Bob Melvin said. "We've done it so many times so there's always going to be that confidence until we make that last out."

Two outs later, Crisp lined a single and Smith scored easily when right fielder Avisail Garcia couldn't handle the ball.

That set off a raucous celebration near first base as the A's poured out of the dugout to mob Crisp, who was the recipient of a whipped cream pie that became a regular occurrence in this remarkable season in Oakland. This marked the second time the A's erased a two-run deficit in the ninth inning to win a postseason game, the other coming in Game 5 of the 1929 World Series.

"It's amazing," Crisp said. "The guys in front of me obviously did a fantastic job of getting on base. ... This club, we've been battling the whole year, giving 100 percent, and these walkoffs have been our MO this year."

Ryan Cook retired four batters for the win.

The A's, who have the lowest payroll in baseball, need just one more surprising result to win their second postseason series since 1990. Rookie Jarrod Parker will take the mound in Game 5 on Thursday night against Verlander, the reigning AL Cy Young winner and MVP.

"That's why this is the greatest game of all," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "It looked like we were going to get it. We didn't do it. We didn't quite get the 27 outs, that's part of the game. You get tested all the time in this game. And this is a good test."

The Tigers looked to be in prime position to advance to their second straight ALCS and have a rested Verlander for Game 1 when they took a 3-1 lead into the ninth behind a strong start from Max Scherzer and a homer from Prince Fielder.

Now the A's are one win away from repeating last week's three-game sweep of Texas that gave them the AL West title on the final day of the regular season. After losing the first two games in Detroit, the A's won 2-0 in Game 3 and are looking to become the eighth team to rally from two games down to win a best-of-five series.

The San Francisco Giants will have a shot to do it as well earlier Thursday when they face Cincinnati in Game 5 of their NL division series.

Scherzer, who was dealing with shoulder, deltoid and ankle injuries late in the season, looked in top form against the A's. He allowed just one baserunner in the first four innings and struck out seven of the first 15 batters before running into his first trouble in the fifth.

Smith worked a two-out walk and went to third on Derek Norris' opposite-field blooper down the right-field line. But Scherzer responded by getting Cliff Pennington to chase an offspeed pitch in the dirt for his eighth strikeout.

The A's finally got to Scherzer for an unearned run in the sixth. Crisp reached when Fielder misplayed a hard grounder to first base into a two-base error. Crisp advanced on a wild pitch and scored on Stephen Drew's double to right-center. But the A's ran themselves out of a potential big inning when third-base coach Mike Gallego waved Drew around to third, where he was easily caught on the relay for the first out.

Octavio Dotel and Phil Coke both retired a batter to get out of the sixth and Al Alburquerque pitched a perfect seventh in his first appearance since his memorable kiss of the baseball on a comebacker by Yoenis Cespedes in Game 2. Joaquin Benoit escaped a first-and-second jam in the eighth by striking out Brandon Moss, but Valverde couldn't close it.

"This is the toughest moment in my whole career," Valverde said. "I had everything. These guys hit it. There's nothing I can do."

NOTES: This is the seventh postseason walkoff win for the A's in franchise history and first since Ramon Hernandez won it with a squeeze bunt in the 2003 division series against Boston. ... A.J. Griffin allowed two runs in 5-plus innings. He was the third Oakland rookie pitcher to start a game this series, the most ever by a team in a single postseason. The A's used just two rookie starting pitchers in 147 postseason games before this year:: Joe Bush in the 1913 World Series and Barry Zito in the 2000 division series. ... Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera has not driven in a run in the series. ... Reddick has struck out eight times in the four games, setting an Oakland record for most in a postseason series.

Earbuds That Won't Fall Out Are Your Dealzmodo-Exclusive Deal of the Day [Dealzmodo]

I've got a confession: I've never much liked in-ear earphones. I've had several well-reviewed pairs over the years, but I could never get them to stay in, even though I tried pretty much every trick and insert. I couldn't take a short walk to the subway without adjusting them a bunch of times. Athletic use was pretty much a non-starter. But then I found Yurbuds: let me tell you, these things stick in your ears. Brent Rose agrees. He wrote in his review: More »
