author July 12th, 2007

One area I believe that Apple is playing catchup to MS in is the included video player. Windows Media Player (especially 11) is far superb to Quicktime as far as features. You can get all WMP’s features and more in Quicktime, but it’s thirty bucks. Now we’ve moved one step further. [...]

That’s it. They’ve done it. Microsoft has released the ugliest current-gen console ever. I actually kind of like the Elite. I’m partial to the white (green on white is my favorite pattern). But what is this? Seriously. It looks like something from a “Who can create the ugliest [...]

author July 5th, 2007

On my PC Machines I’ve never trusted any other anti-virus than eTrust. McAfee and Symantec while decent, are jokes compared to CA (the maker of etrust). I’ve scanned the same computer with all three softwares and the first two found no viruses and CA found 12! Man that saved me from having [...]
