I bet they scheduled it for today on purpose. And the Google start page is going to creep out Microsoft to no end, too...

Other interesting stuff:

  • uDevGames. the Mac Game Developer Contest (via Melo). l1neum and SolarQuest are pretty damn good - don't know about the rest.
  • Delicious Library is interesting, but has a showstopper bug for me: It's fetching item descriptions from Amazon in german. I can read several languages, but this is ridiculous. Still, it imported all my Collection data flawlessly and works with my Bluetooth barcode scanner.
  • The Skype CEO's interview to Engadget (only got around to read it today).
  • Updated apt packages for Fedora Core 3 are out already, as well as read-only NTFS support and a couple more things. I'm waiting on the Wi-Fi driver for my Toshiba/M100 (yeah, I could always compile it, but it's not that urgent - Bluetooth support is the one thing I need to fix ASAP).
