  • I can understand discontinuing a technology that has been surpassed, but USB 2.0 isn't better than FireWire 400 and doesn't compare with FireWire 800. Maybe this is more proof that Apple has become less about being the best in the field and more consumer oriented like M$.
  • Discount movies? Garth Brooks? Bowling? You're one hep cat! But yeah, tickets are spendy. Still, like concerts there is that group feel, at least some times.

    The Soon To Be Most Hyped Up Non-Stories of 2006
  • You forgot Microsoft XP Tiger Edition.
  • "User-friendly" is a marketing term. Marketing is largely about lying to entice people to spend money. We should stop using marketing terms to describle computers, and so much else. But, I guess we're all a little brain-washed by the constant barrage of advertising...

    The Mac Has Never Been User-Friendly
  • All together, I get about a dozen pieces of junk mail in the inbox of my email client from the two accounts in it. The subjects of these missives is about the same as yours. Everyday a newbie enters cyberspace. These folks don't know spam from ham and click on thru. Some are fools enough to buy something. It only takes a few sales out of thousands of emails to keep companies hiring spammers, from what I've read. So unless kids learn about the dangers and pitfalls of the internet in school and wise up, spam will always be profitable. Sigh.
