Quote of the Day
Quote of the Day:
From page-a-day calendar from Dr. Phil:
"Its quiet possible to be extremely busy, without being productive."
Not only is Andy Grove right in 2003, but this quote is right today:
"E-commerce is happening the way all the hype said it would. Internet deployment is happening. Broadband is happening. Everything we ever said about the Internet is happening. And it is very, very early. We can't even glimpse IT's potential in changing the way people work and live."
-Andy Grove (BusinessWeek/August 2003)
There is so much areas of the internet that has yet to be explored.
Get Excited! Remember, please keep your hands inside the vehicle at all times!
Look like Google has now gone into the censorship business. They have teamed up with StopBadware.org to warn people before visiting certain sites that the website may contain programs that could harm your computer.
Now there's nothing wrong with educating the public about Spyware programs, but I don't think that is the job of a search engine. The responsibility lies within the browser to warn you before you download something, such as downloading programs that you didn't request and the responsibility lies with the OS, to prevent programs from hijacking the computer.
If your running Windows and have been hit with a lot of spyware in the past and are experiencing problems with popups, you really should look into changing your computer's operating system. Its clearly not doing its job. Are you really being productive? Why is Norton Anti-Virus the #1 Utility software on Windows?
So what's the solution? Change your Operating System! I would recommend going to an Apple Store and checking out the latest computers. You'll be surprise what the latest Apple computers can do and what you won't be missing by switching. Talk to the people at the Apple Store, play around with the computers. Checkout the software that's available at the store and online.Permalink
The Charlie Card
This morning Fox Morning News covered the new Charlie Card, that will replace the tokens that the MBTA is currently using.
One of the disadvantages of the Charlie card is that it will be a lot easier for the MBTA to change prices on different routes.
All you have to do is look at the chart at any Washington METRO station to see how much it cost to go between stations. That chart is coming to a T station near you....Permalink
iPod Docking Station
Today I purchased an iPod docking station so that it would be easier to connect my iPod to my computer.
However, the docking station does not come with an iPod cable! So, you still need to purchase an extra iPod cable if you use your iPod between different computers! At $40 for the docking station, this seems to be an excessive price since it doesn't include a cable.Permalink
