we haven't had an apple vs. microsoft post in a while

Apple is so lame and so childish that the icons it uses in Leopard for networked Windows PCs are CRT displays with a Windows blue screen of death. (See this image for details.)

You see, Leopard has its own blue screen of death. And it's happening to an alarming number of people who buy the new OS and install it on their Macs. Apple has been forced to acknowledge the problem and even use the term "blue screen" to describe it. And they've posted a fix, well, really more of a workaround, that involves an insane serious of UNIX terminal commands.

Have fun with those blue screens, Apple. My advice: Describe this as feature number 301. Heck, you might be able to wrangle 3 or 4 new features out of it. :)

does she turn for you ?

THE Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.,21985,22556281-661,00.html

really cool way to checkout phones

ever wondered what all that phones out there look like ? well if you click and hover over the following page you will see screen dumps of hundreds and hundreds of handsets ;

and no, of course the iphone is not there, but  as a gadget geek surely you'll enjoy this page anyway.

now, there is no excuse for not running opera on your mobile phone .... my excuse is that my phone doesn't support any data protocols and isn't listed ...

Australia jumps 11 spots on iPod index

In the market for a new video iPod? Head to Hong Kong or, if Europe-bound, stop off in Switzerland. But best avoid Brazil.

Be patient and keep watching towards the end... it's worth it... or just let it load and skip towards the end... *gob smacked*
