Sorry about the recent delays in posting folks... I've been a little busy myself, plus there hasn't been much that's interesting in the news lately. Here are some items of note as of late.

The MySpace Economy Myspace has created it's own economy, that's how big it is. Spin-off companies, selling for countless dollars each. What is the world coming to?

Manipulating the Media
A pair of bright individuals have decided that it would be funny to start manipulating the media. I agree it is funny.

Save Upstate New York The battle over wind power in upstate New York... why bother?

Why I love IBM

XP On a Mac - Approved by Apple

Apple Computer has released the BootCamp Public Beta, a nice little piece of software that will allow you to run Windows XP natively on a Mac... all of this after the greatest contest in the world has wrapped up.... XP on a Mac. I think the grand prize was somewhere around $14000... and after all this, Apple makes their own boot loader.

Also, something else of great interest to me... The OSX86Project - my main objective... not to be tied down to Apple's proprietary hardware. As much as I like it... I am a cheapskate. Cheap hardware + mac os x... sounds like a plan. Unix will always be my friend.
