Link Mode

Splitting headache, some links:

  • Why I will never update my copy of Toast. Brilliant support strategy, sure to annoy anyone mastering demo or training CDs.
  • New mobile fraud trend: unlocking laptops. Another stroke of genius, where marketing meets "cutting edge" technology (hint: the thing has an EDGE modem...)
  • Yahoo's music store (which, besides being purple, has met with some pointed opinions already) is apparently going European soon (the article isn't very specific, but it's always nice to know). Apple's already here, since October 26th. I can't wait until this market shakes out and ludicrous pricing schemes fall out.
  • The W3C finally figured out the existence of mobile devices. I still think this "let's deal with the special mobile case" approach is dumb - it's all about proper design and minimal standards compliance, not special-purpose profiles.
  • Finally, computing for the masses. Or so we hope, since all previous attempts vanished without a trace.
  • Looks like I'm not the only one put off by OpenOffice 2.0's use of Java. Or its abysmal startup times on a 3.6GHz Intel box with a full gigabyte of RAM.
  • The Minesweeper Dashboard widget. Finally, something interesting to put on my Dashboard.
  • Warning: very strong Java (and language) - what most Java people probably think, but keep to themselves rather than taint their pure world view. A keeper.
  • GTDTiddlyWiki - my brain just exploded. I've been using TiddlyWiki for lots of little notebooks and a sort of internal magazine, but this is utterly, utterly brilliant.
