Lonesome Cowboy

Posted by glasscastle on 23rd June 2003

Ronald Reagan wasn’t a cowboy. He was a guy who played a cowboy who later became president. George W. Bush is a guy playing Ronald Reagan playing a cowboy who later became president…

Interesting rebuttal to the “Bush is a Cowboy” argument

Like Xerox, Google has become a Verb

Posted by glasscastle on 23rd June 2003

Of course, Google is the #1 search engine.  But it
is so, so much more.  Like typing in a phone number and finding
who it belongs to, or translations into many languages, or searching
only one site, any site in the world……good short review

Booby Hatch PC Meltdown

Posted by glasscastle on 23rd June 2003

hatch

Senator Orrin Hatch, Republican of Utah, made a rather
spectacular fool of himself last week during a hearing on electronic
data piracy.
Too bad for Hatch, but good clean fun for any technology writer who enjoys
asking the question: “Can they do that?”

Do what? Why, destroy millions of computers by remote control, like
the villainous Blofeld killing incompetent underlings in an old James
Bond
movie.
