I’ll start off with this quote from McClatchy-Tribune Information Services’ Jon Dawson who is reviewing the new Britney Spears release: “The Singles Collection gathers all of Britney Spears singles released between the years of 1999 and 2009. This is a good thing, because if they’re all in one place, maybe somebody with a flamethrower can […]

An Enormous Post

Fake Steve Jobs (aka Dan Lyons) wrote an amusing piece in his blog today. As you may have seen, Microsoft was planning to sponsor an entire episode of Family Guy. It was to be 30 minutes and sans commercials. The payoff for them was having all sorts of Windows7 references built into the show. Microsoft, […]

Firefox Continues to Cause Grief at Microsoft 2.0

Firefox 3 has become the first non-Microsoft web browser to overtake IE6 in market share. (Note this doesn’t even include lumping in FF2 so it’s a straight up comparison). The open-source browser climbed to 24 percent of users in February while IE6 dipped to just over 22.6 percent, making Firefox the second most popular browser […]

Firefox Rolls On

Just a quick entry to note that Firefox has crossed the 500 million download mark. That’s a half- billion downloads. Or to put it in numbers 500,000,000 downloads and counting.

Stick a fork in it, because it’s over. It’s official. Today, Toshiba has announced that HD-DVD is no more and will be relegated to the bin of history.

Appleism (Apple Becomes a Religion)

I use StumpleUpon regularly, and it dropped me into a blog which has a fascinating post. I’m sorry it took me so long to blog it, but here it is. David Kuo writes a rather interesting piece entitled “Welcome to Appleism, the religion that is Apple.” I don’t want to spoil it all here without […]

A Plethora of Palabras

Wow. This will be a busy post. I have a lot to say. First, this YouTube Video has me highly stressed. I’ve got a very low opinions of all politicians, but is this little clip (verified, thanks) a racist rant from Hillary Clinton? It’s her but is what she saying racist? Interesting thing to wonder […]

More Nails For Windows Vista’s Coffin

Another person has added to the list of reasons that Windows Vista is now looking more like the infamous Windows ME than the future of Microsoft‘s. I have many posts about Windows Vista (see the tags below) but this is the most important one of them all. Microsoft has turned on itself. And Dave Jewell […]
