The Microsoft Store

The Penny Arcade guys have a great post today about the approaching Microsoft Store.  No shock that they find the funny in it, but I was particularily taken by this passage: On the desktop, and this is unfortunate for them, the only way to make a truly discriminating choice is to purchase a competitor’s product.

Embracing the Netbook

I’m not used to windows yet, so I’m still trying out a lot of software options, including windows live for blogging. It’s got a very Microsoft interface, for good an for ill, so if this post looks weird, please feel free to blame MS. It’s now been a few weeks with an HP Mini 1000, […]

Taking Marsedit 2 for a Spin

So, the nice folks at Red Sweater software rolled out a new version of Marsedit pretty much the same day I paid for the old version. I was a little miffed at first, but thankfully they offer a free upgrade to people in my position, and I’ve taken advantage of that generosity. If nothing else, […]

Not Ready for Prime Time

So, I had reason to add about 20 new feeds to my newsreader today. This may be a little extreme – I’m a bit inundated with news as is – but I found an excellent list of blogs in a given field, so I ran down that list, getting the feed for each one. Now, […]
