a morbid rhyme for haloween

Ten little sailor boys

Ten little sailor boys went out to dine,
One choked his little self, and then there were nine.

Nine little sailor boys sat up very late,
One overslept himself, and then there were eight.

Eight little sailor boys traveling in Devon,
One said he'd stay there, and then there were seven.

Seven little sailor boys chopping up sticks,
One chopped himself in halves, and then there were six.

Six little sailor boys playing with a hive,
A bumblebee stung one, and then there were five.

Five little sailor boys going in for law,
One got in Chancery, and then there were four.

Four little sailor boys going out to sea,
A red herring swallowed one, and then there were three.

Three little sailor boys walking in the zoo,
A big bear hugged one , and then there were two.

Two little sailor boys sitting in the sun,
One got frizzled up, and then there was one.

One little sailor boy left all alone,
He went and hanged himself, and then there were none.

The iphone with third party apps without a hack!

Yep thats right heres what Steve jobs posted..i would have provied a link but im afrid the page may be updated so it will be more permant if i put it here:

Third Party Applications on the iPhone

Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers’ hands in February. We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers.

It will take until February to release an SDK because we’re trying to do two diametrically opposed things at once—provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware, privacy attacks, etc. This is no easy task. Some claim that viruses and malware are not a problem on mobile phones—this is simply not true. There have been serious viruses on other mobile phones already, including some that silently spread from phone to phone over the cell network. As our phones become more powerful, these malicious programs will become more dangerous. And since the iPhone is the most advanced phone ever, it will be a highly visible target.

Some companies are already taking action. Nokia, for example, is not allowing any applications to be loaded onto some of their newest phones unless they have a digital signature that can be traced back to a known developer. While this makes such a phone less than “totally open,” we believe it is a step in the right direction. We are working on an advanced system which will offer developers broad access to natively program the iPhone’s amazing software platform while at the same time protecting users from malicious programs.

We think a few months of patience now will be rewarded by many years of great third party applications running on safe and reliable iPhones.

Steve

P.S.: The SDK will also allow developers to create applications for iPod touch. [Oct 17, 2007]

Google buys another company

Well its happened. Google has bought Jaiku, a service that watches what you do and reports it to the world. I never fell in for that sort of thing but it is quite to popular service that was a nice pick up for Google. This makes me think of the time they bought YouTube and changed the rules about full length shows being on it which..kinda sucked. It occurs to me that all of a suden the internet has become like any other business and suddenly everyone is buying out everyone and there are those shrewd ones like the guy that owns facebook. He has been offered thousands of dollars and yet he wont sell it to anyone. I wonder who will be the next to be bought..I guess only time will tell.
