Happy Windows 7 Day!


  Windows 7 is officially among us.  The long awaited Vista replacement/upgrade is a significant step in the right direction for the Operating system.  Windows has met the maturity of OSX and the differentiation is more of a preference than that of security and stability.  Windows has driven me to long nights and near insanity in the past with its numerous bugs and whatnot.  This time there has been little hair pulling since the first beta was made available.  Now we can all rest for awhile and have a worthy succesor to XP.  If you’re in the market for multiple PC’s or copies for Boot Camp on your Mac then check out the $149.00 family pack and save yourself some money.

Apple Admits Kane Kramer Invented the iPod


  Apple gave credit where credit is due when it comes to the inventor of the idea for music players like the iPod.  Apple used Kane Kramer in a lawsuit when they needed to prove who held the acknowledgment of iPod invention.  When Kane Kramer was just 23 years of age in 1979, he created the IXI.  The credit card sized device held 3.5 minutes of music on its internal chipset, which is pretty impressive given the technology of the day. Kane did envision that capacity would grow with time and he certainly had it right.  He did try and capitalize on the idea, but that fell thru given the timing of the device.
