Another Great Week in Tech News

The Man Behind the Monster - Going from cheap ass B movies to working for Industrial Light and Magic. How's that for a career jump. The life story of Dennis Muren.

Apple Investigates Chinese Labour Issues - As if everyone couldn't see this coming... it's well known that almost any chinese based company is little more than a slave labour camp, so why should the Foxconn plant in Taiwan be any different?

Microsoft VS Apple iPod
- It just ain't gonna happen folks. As a proud ipod owner, it's the best that there is out there. Microsoft might be a marketing powerhouse, but I don't think they can beat down the iPod.

Another use for Dry Ice - Scientists have discovered that by compressing Dry Ice ( solid carbon dioxide ) they can make a Super Hard Glass coating. Who'd have thunk it?

SkyNet is coming - Police are working on unmanned flying drone testing over Los Angeles. Good idea, but does SkySeer = SkyNet?

Bill Gates is Microsoft no more?
- News to me, it seems as if Bill Gates has a heart. He will be slowly transitioning out of Microsoft to continue work in the Health and Education sector by working with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
