We are building this tool to help you connect with people who share your love for creation, great music, technology and modern culture."

If you click on the 'Launch Windows Media Player' icon. The ......

I am now currently sick. I think it what has been going around the office for the last month or so. I am the last man standing though. If I do get sick and stay home I will do some good posts. For now I am off to bed to try to get better.

MSN's new products and services don't get the same attention and respect
Over at BetaNews there is an article MSN In Need of an Image Makeover?. After reading it over and then going over to Torres Talking which is blogs MSN - Early adopters and "influencers". I was thinking how can there be any buzz about products when everything Microsoft does is so public. The most recent example would be IE 7. We already know what they are planning. I can picture it in my head tabbed browser, CSS 2.0, etc. So will I be excited when I get my hands on it yet? Of course, but will I be ......

gotdotnet isn't my favorite
Shortly after postings about the Rory and Scott video which mentioned gotdotnet I thought to myself why don't they use something else. Anything else has to be better. The only product I though that would work and is branded with the Microsoft name is SharePoint 2003 Portal. I went looking online to see if I could find anyone else with this idea. Surprise someone else has already thought of this (not really surprised lots of smart people out there). Here is the link to the discussion. ......

Rory and Scott go to TechEd - A love story
I have just seen Rory and Scott go to TechEd - A love story. I laughed so hard. My favorite quote is: "they were using gotdotnet you know, but when I went there to download the code the other day and I am still waiting for the page to load" (I think I got that right). It so funny because it so true. Every time I see a link to gotdotnet, I am just hoping that today will be my lucky day and it will work correctly. Thanks Scoble for the link.[Now Playing: - Scott and Rory (02:25)] ......

Star Wars Trailer

The Star War Trailer  for Episode III that was shown after the OC was AWESOME! I will be going to see Robots this weekend so I will see it again. I saw Jimmy Smiths in it for about 3 seconds. I am a big fan of the West Wing so seeing him in Episode III will be fun.

Airlines are inviting people to BYOP

I was watching the news tonight and heard the Delta would remove pillows from all US flights. After a little research I found out that American has done the same. So Bring Your Own Pillow. I wonder if Jet Blue is doing this (I have heard great things about this airline)?

If WinFS is to be available on Windows XP why should I upgrade?
WinFS is going to be backported to Windows XP. I ask myself the question of how can the possible get the masses to upgrade to Longhorn. I will upgrade because I always will, I always want to be on the latest and greatest, but why should my Dad upgrade it Longhorn? What will it buy him? Instead of back porting all of Longhorn into XP why not put the resources into finishing Longhorn. All I see if Microsoft spending a ton a cash and time (and as we all know time is money) on back porting the technology. ......

Technorati Searchlet stopped working

Amit Wgarwal has notified me that the Technorati Searchlet has stopped working. It will retrieve items for the entire database even if you choose 'this blog'. Bummer. I wonder if David Sifry could enlighten the blogosphere of what is going on.
