Interesting thoughts from ITWire: Well if Gates believes that Apple’s claims about Vista and Macintosh are a pack of lies he obviously thinks that they’re powerful lies because he appears worried. And why wouldn’t he be? The part about a Vista upgrade being major surgery and the PC guy offeing to donate his peripherals if [...]
I’m admiring Bill Gates for his new project, Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. Rich people everywhere should learn from him: Give away all (or most of) your money. But I seriously think Bill should leave Microsoft now. Why wait until July 2008? Now he’s just making a fool of himself. This is what he told [...]
…or the other way around. I applaud Adobe for doing this!! If you have a Windows license of Photoshop, and then switch to Mac OS X, you now can contact Adobe, and get a working serial for OS X. Or the other way around. Excellent! John Nack of Adobe has the good news on his [...]
Easy and well-illustrated tutorial on how to make a rainbow in Photoshop. Notice that there are two pages, as the rainbow looks like crap after the first page. ;.)
Tedium is a new web-based GTD system. You can access your lists from a modern browser on all platforms. Simple interface, but maybe too simple for my taste? Not sure yet.

The old OS war… But when a Larry writes something as utterly stupid as this, he gets a birthday present like this.
That’s what Windows Vista thought product manager Shanen Boettcher said: “Dear Aunt, let’s set so double the killer delete select all.” What he DID say was “Dear mom”. Reuters has the story: Several tries at making the computer understand the simple salutation “Dear Mom” was read by Microsoft software as “Dear Aunt, let’s set so [...]
…if people look at it and their initial reaction is “Oh, it’s an iPod rip-off,” that’s a pretty crummy first impression. Does anyone at Microsoft realize that rip-offs aren’t considered cool? A: MY SOURCES SAY NO. Q: Then again, Pablo Picasso said, “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.” By that standard the people on the [...]
I know I will use this link quite a lot
The world is turning upside down.. Next up is HyperCard on Vista. Not.
The Inquirer reports that Media Center doesn’t sell. In Great Britain, only 150 000 have bought a Media Center PC, while over 2 million have bought a DVD recorders. Although the comparison is a bit unfair (DVD recorders are much cheaper, and also typically sold almost everywhere. Even my grocery store at the corner sell [...]
I think we will see this way of interacting with computers a lot in the years to come. It needs to be even better than this to become useful, but this is a good start. And imagine combining the ideas from BumpTop with ideas from Jaff Han and his team? A bright future! What I [...]
Kevin Lim has a cool video on his site, showing an Intel Mac running Mac OS X, Windows XP and Linux. And using Virtue Destops to switch between OSes. Übercool!
