Google Rank Lawsuit?

Dean Hunt is being harassed by an alleged business owner because his site has a higher Google Ranking than the alleged business owner. This business owner even threatens to sue. Who knows, this could be a hoax against Dean. I’m hoping it is, and there isn’t really someone out there this clueless. Just another case […]

Firefox On TV

Even during the NY Times ad I would have never imagined a TV ad campaign running for an open source web browser. Yet somehow it managed to happen. It’s To bad the campaign so far is limited to only Boston/San Francisco. Hopefully New York and other cities in the US (and perhaps even abroad) will […]

I need more storage so that…

I can fill it up with things like code, your every day ordinary data, and of course pictures of horney manatee action. Sorry, Scoble you must have known the porn references would come flowing in. If you don’t know, Scoble and friends over at PodTech.net are running a contest for Seagate HD’s. Go check it […]

Night Launch Of Discovery

I noticed this last night, but apparently I wasn’t the only one as Robert Gale over at A Welsh View and Digg also agree that this is one amazing picture of the shuttle launch. The comments on Digg also point out a few other pictures from this and another launch that are similar, as well […]

QuickTime Security Flaw

Interesting turn of events regarding that MySpace security problem. Plugins add an interesting perspective to security on the web. Web site code, browser code, and (often forgotten) plugin code. That’s a lot of hands in the pot. One mistake is all it takes.

Late Night Dot Com Perversion

Conan O’Brien decided in one of his bits to mention a website as an ad lib remark. According to him the NBC lawyers insist on registering any domain they mention on air. As a result HorneyManatee.com (very mild, but may be NSFW [not safe for work]) was born. With some of the most disturbing (yet […]

Firebug 1.0 Beta Is Out!

Firebug 1.0 Beta is available for download. Only played with it for a few minutes, but it looks great so far. I’ll definitely be digging into it and see what’s really new and better in the next day or two.

Browser VM

One of the great things about virtual machines is you can test on a virtual machine, destroy it, and recreate it in pristine condition in a matter of seconds. You can do this with browsers as well. Before I mentioned PortableApps is a great thing to have on your USB drive. Well, you can also […]

Yahoo TV Redesign

I noticed this the other day. The Yahoo! TV redesign is aweful (my personal opinion, maybe some like/love it). And yes, we all know I’m a TV addict. Once upon a time I was a TVGuide.com user, but switched because it was to slow and cumbersome. Now once again I may be hunting for something […]
