Technology and Time Working and Thinking
I just realized, these stories are written by people who need to pay the bills. Apple, Google, Microsoft, Dell, Motorola, HP, Maxtor, Hitachi, NASA,. all of you... (except FermiLab), ignore all these stories people are publishing. Just keep making cool software and hardware. People will buy your gadgets. ... Or at least somebody's gadgets. :-) ......

Steve Wozniak's remarks regarding Apple's switch to Intel interest me. I bet a lot of Apple employees working on the project felt the same way. His comments provide another excellent example of the pain related to this innovation. "It's like consorting with the enemy. We've had this long history of saying that the enemy is the big black-hatted guys, ......

Before any team releases a product, they must consider the importance of protecting the consumer. That makes a lot of sense. But, in this case, I think the consumer needed to exercise some common sense. Apple provided a wonderful product with very nice headphones.

After speaking with some friends and recently learning about a new .NET Python Implementation*, I've resolved to take some time experimenting with these two languages in 2006: Python - a beta 1 of Iron Python is out and may be downloaded here. Ruby on Rails - a Windows (or 'nix)** version may be downloaded here. * thanks Joe and Alfred! ** apparently ......

THIS story would be of particular interest to me, if I were using, consuming, or running an internet ad placement service.

For some reason, a lot of people I've discussed this with seem unaware that there is a new version of the GIMP available for windows. This is sweet! I've been using it a lot. While the software has some places it could improve, it's light years more useful for serious image editing than paint or most other freeware packages I've seen (I still use paint ......
