Google broken

Google Flags Whole Internet As Malware

Panic ensued today as google flagged every site on the net as potentially harming your computer. Screw ups like this can hurt an engine..but google is so powerful I don't think it will harm it that much.

Intersting marketing strategy | Send Large Files and Big File Transfer by Email

The link above it to the site known as dilbertfiles. Yes it is the same Dilbert that is in the comics. The joke has been going on in the comic for a few days now and I got curious enough to see if someone had made it and sure enough it is there. I assume this is actually from or approved by Scott Adams otherwise there would be a copyright suit. From what I read the service is not free. It's a nice idea and a great marketing ploy but...I'll stick to for my file tranfer. What can I say..I'm cheap.

Woz speaks on Steve Jobs health

Steve Wozniak Sheds Some Light On Steve Jobs’ Health Issues (Video) | MacBlogz - One Stop Apple News

He makes a valid point in this interview that sometimes rest can make great ideas happen. I belive it will only effect stock a lot if the public becomes to paniced instead of thinking rationally about it. He is sick and needs rest. I agree with Woz..and i say this with a record of not being a mac fanboy..Leave him alone and let him rest.

microsoft ads finally get the right idea

Microsoft's new ad campaign finally gets it right | The Open Road - CNET News

It finally makes the point i always thought. Apple ads were a bunch of information that you automatically accept because it was funny. The ad says that there is a mountain of data that you need to be aware of. I for one agree completely.
