This year’s WWDC “Stevenote” is over. Among the more notable points: Tiger is a fully 64-bit OS… which is gonna allow the PowerMac G5’s to move so fast that they catch fire. “Expose for Widgets”, which is super similar to Konfabulator “Spotlight” which sounds an awful lot like the planned database-style search integration in Longhorn.

By the way, if anyone came here looking for a WML/WAP feed for their cell phone or PDA, I’ve got one now.
Haiku Does anyone here know what “Haiku” is (…and no, I’m not talking about a 17 syllable Japanese poem)? Haiku is the brand-new name for an open source project that was formerly called “OpenBeOS”. How many here know what OpenBeOS is? OpenBeOS is a project whose goal is to re-create, from scratch, an open source […]
Well, my upgrade to Movable Type 3.0 went well. I’ve decided to stick with MT for now.

There are some things, however, that are irritating me although it’s not really Apple’s fault. The first would definitely be the lack […]
This morning, I have two computers sitting in front of me: The first is the one that I built from scratch a few months ago. That one has been almost completely unused (as of late) except for trying to get Windows XP re-installed from a scratched disc. My best friend is coming up this week, […]
