facebook.google.com?

According to Business Week the reason why Google is raising $2 Billion, may be to buy Facebook. I guess that would be the final nail in the coffin for Orkut. Could be interesting to see what Google would do with another social networking site. The first attempt didn’t seem to be very successful. Perhaps they […]

WPF/E in Firefox

Mike Harsh discusses a bit about WPF/E as a cross platform solution, and includes a Firefox extension, leaving me to believe another Firefox extension from Microsoft is in the works (first being Microsoft Genuine Advantage). Mac support too. For those wondering what WPF/E is, I’d recommend reading this and of course a wikipedia entry. I […]

Apple to Mark The Big 3-0

30 years of “Apple will be bankrupt and out of business in a year”. Here’s to another 30 “Apple will never survive” years.

Google Finance

Google Finance launched, in perma-beta form as usual. A few things about the design are notworthy. First of all, the use of javascript, or AJAX, or whatever you want to call it, is pretty good. The ability to see the headlines on the graph as it relates to the stock price is extremely well done. […]

Filtering out the Channel Noise

Ben wrote a must read post about public discussion that I think any Open Source developer needs to read. If you’re a Mozilla contributor, read it extra close. It really makes only 1 point (make more discussion open). But it doesn’t really address all the problems that prevent that goal from becoming a reality. I […]

Words of Wisdom

I accidentally turned off my “words of wisdom” on the sidebar of the homepage a few weeks ago… it’s back in all it’s glory, plus a few new quotes.

mozPod 0.2 Status

I have slowly been working on a new mozPod release, it’s just not going very fast, as it’s still a lower priority project. So far, it seems to be pretty well accepted. Here are a few of the changes planned, or already completed: Preliminary Lightning Support Having an LDAP server setup in your Address Book […]

The Apple Worm?

According to Norton AntiVirus, Apple’s own QuickTime.com website may be a threat to the safety of my (and your) computer. I was trying to view the M:i:III Trailer (link below in plain text, so you can think twice before clicking). I’m not sure who is at fault. It’s either Apple with a contaminated server, or […]

The Dance of Joy

When I saw AOL’s new Television service (free), I got excited. When I realized that Perfect Strangers was one of the show listed, I did the Dance of Joy. Guess who is going to be watching a lot of TV reruns (even more than the normal 24hrs a day)?

Windows System Performance Ratings

If Microsoft were smart, they would have released the tool for Windows 2000/XP to test for Windows System Performance Ratings in Windows Vista. That way users could test and start upgrading if necessary, so when launch time comes around, their customer base is more ready to accept the new product. Then again, if they are […]
