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 […]

Another Blow To Vista

In another blow to Microsoft‘s latest version of Windows, “Vista”, Dell has been forced to backtrack its Windows Vista only decision (news article), and is now shipping XP based systems due to overwhelming demand from its customers.

Post 300: Microsoft’s Arrogance And Stupidity

An interesting article (here) about Windows Vista by Andrew Grygus. It’s fitting that my 300th post is yet another tirade against Windows. Actually, it’s more my commentary on someone else’s tirade.

Another reason to hate Windows Vista

If you read these DRM comments and still install it, you’re a nutter. Seriously, you can’t play selected CDs, you can’t use selected hardware and cables. It’s just screwed. Seriously, I am anti-Microsoft and I gladly admit that, but these things are even worse than you could imagine. If you must use Windows, at least […]

Randomness Part Trois

Let’s see where to begin. Today, at work, I upgraded from Outlook Express to Outlook. I can’t say I’m happy. There are so many little things with Outlook that bug me. The two biggest issues being the address book (Contacts) aren’t working properly and I can’t figure it out, nor can any of the so-called […]

Beatles: only on iPod via iTunes?

The whole article is here, but I am going excerpt from it. Yes, the long rumoured move is about nigh! The Beatles come to your iPod. And that may prompt me to buy another iPod. I had one, you know, and then I sold it on eBay. Well, you’ve all seen the cool black U2 […]
