Combing Sand

I have a gazillion unread RSS items plus a truckload of mail that I'd love to at least glance at, so I'll just toss out a few links with the usual terse commentary:

  • Finally, Q has gone Universal, which means we're only waiting for someone to port kqemu (or an equivalent).
  • Guido got a Series 60 to run Python. My take: This is good, but Nokia should get a clue about not having Mac software (or a Mac-based development environment).
  • There's a lot of noise about a couple of Mac OS X trojans. I've yet to come across anything more dangerous than this, but user carelessness will damage any OS.
  • I've finally had the time to watch this video of a multi-input touch screen - it is indeed amazing, but I will not join the gaggle of hopeful Apple patent watchers in wishing for an Apple tablet just yet, even though seems to have an inexhaustible supply of diagrams...
  • I had come across WikiCalc before, but it seems to have fleshed out a bit more.
  • Office 2007 details are starting to pop up everywhere, and one of the best overviews is here. Note that Groove has indeed been subsumed, but that it is positioned as a premium complement - which means Microsoft intends to milk collaboration software as a cash cow, splitting their offer into tiers (basic screen sharing, SharePoint and the like for intranets, and Groove for road warriors).
  • pfig has a posse. I actually quite like Campfire, although I don't think it's earth-shattering in any way.
  • The Sidekick lives on, although I am starting to wonder why.
  • Yes, Dvorak is barking mad. No doubt about it whatsoever.
