Vista, MacOS: Who’s Copying Whom?
Does Windows Vista indeed look a lot like the MacOS? At first sight, you’d say yes. Vista’s Gadgets bear a striking resemblance to Apple’s widgets, for instance. However, you have to go back in time, to 2003 to be precise, to realize that, yes, Microsoft actually got there first, 2 years before Tiger. What?
A well written article that talks about several obvious points that no one ever seems to remember, be it by coincidence or by denial, when it comes to the Apple vs. Microsoft battle.

The title says it all…kinda interesting, but also fairly useless. Yes, this is interesting to me…sad I know.
USB teddy bear holds data, scares children
Generally, when someone makes a teddy bear-themed gadget, his/her intention is to overwhelm bystanders with cuteness. But whoever created this little guy, whose head has to be removed in order to access the internal USB drive, must have watched one too many Tim Burton movies.

QuickMuse is a cutting contest, a linguistic jam session, a series of on-the-fly compositions in which some great poets riff away on a randomly picked subject. It’s an experiment, QuickMuse, to see if first thoughts are indeed the best ones.
Interesting idea, I’ll have to check this out when I get some time.

Pixels, photos and Moore
I’m eagerly awaiting Canon’s next move, probably to 25-plus megapixels. I’m what marketing people call an early adopter, but mark my words – you’ll own a 16- or even a 25-megapixel point-and-shoot in a few years, and it will not stop there. By some estimates, your eyes have an effective resolution of more than 500 megapixels. If you can see it, why shouldn’t a camera record it?
An effective resolution of 500 megapixels for the human eye…that is just crazy.
Explore Shakespeare with Google
Now Shakespeare’s oeuvre is even more accessible. Search within Hamlet for “to be or not to be” to read the rest of his famous soliloquy. Find out who called the world his “oyster” and why.
