Political Wire (via Scripting News): "In an interview with Time magazine, President Bush declared the war in Iraq a 'catastrophic success.' Sen. John Edwards responds in the Washington Post: 'I, like most Americans, have no idea what that means.'"
For those interested, my jabber id is aquatix at amessage dot info
Good to see people fixing IE's problems with CSS and real DOM. When microsoft is paying attention, they might be able to build a good browser again.
Interesting read from someone who likes Windows as much as GNU/Linux for his desktop. He just prefers a safe and smooth desktop.
Great post about UI design. A lot of common sense, but useful nonetheless.
Wired article I ran across, noting some nice Mozilla Firefox extensions. The follow-up article has some other great ones. I personally can recommend AdBlock and All-in-one gestures for a far better browsing experience :)
"A new scientific study shows that people who are in good moods tend to have unreliable memories." Maybe that's why some geeks are trying hard to keep their chagrin? :)
As I predicted myself some time ago, free/non-DRMed art doesn't mean no income to the artists.
Finally some nice response to those all American lawyers.
How's that for society?
"Wired News reviews a book about technology going awry." Don't we all love those companies?
About the hilariously bad drinks of today and their marketing.
Some people with too much time on their hands speculating about the next iMac. Some really nice fantasies included.
I still think people _want_ to use the whole internet on their portable device [at least I do, but I'm geek] and I still think people should finally realize their websites aren't only for people surfing with ultra fast computers featuring screens with resolutions of 1024x768 and higher.
Ok, it's about a Mac application, but he's got some good points.
When your clothes, soda drink and maybe even watch [who cares about Swatch ;)] are confiscated because they are of the opposing brands, what leaves you thinking you are living in a free country?
Finally a destination for you iPaq. I'll stick with my Sony Clie TH55. Ey, that one does play movies as well. Hmm.
I'll stick with my almost ancient Mitsumi keyboard [one of the first with the € sign on it and one of the last clutter free keyboards], but it's a sign that GNU/Linux is catching on.
Warning 1: not worksafe. Warning 2: very disturbing content
Some info about keeping track of the fast people in Athens and deciding who gets the metal.
Just some nice pictures [check out the DesignTechnica page too].
OK, for all people still stuck with windows, here goes some good list to keep your computer a bit safer than normal. For people who really care, I can recommend livecd's [handy for when a windows install is really screwed up] and GNU/Linux.
It's time for another sexual revolution, baby. Get with it. It's the naughties. Yeah, baby! Yeah!
Or, How you really have to care about your product and customers
Viva la sponsoring... I wouldn't want to be part of a happening where I can't even wear the clothes that I want [considering they aren't offensively nude ;)]
Creepy creatures from the deep. Fascinating to realize we don't know a damn about our own planet and we already want to expand to other worlds.
So there's hope for you slackers out there! Or your hope has just been crushed.
What use does anyone have for a crippled version of windows [mind: not lightened by removing such ish like mediaplayer, ie or pinball], which features the following gems: "limited to lower resolutions" and "limit users to running three programs concurrently." It will also offer "limited networking capabilities." Sounds like windows 3.11 to me :/
This is a good example of how a system can go bad. America is not alone in this downward spiral. The Dutch government even made a point in trying to reduce rules. Bureaucracy baaaad.
Hm, don't know what to think about this. It's a bit funnier [for a while] than looking at those Burger King "Spider-man hero meals"-poster-thingees.
