Take out your frustrations on your computer without actually damaging it!

Well I have a friend who always always hates his computer, no if and or buts about it. It's cause it never works. This program might just be the thing for his gun toting Texan ways. The program is called Bullet, and nifty little program that lets you use you mouse to shoot at your computer. It's a great little stress reliever, though I think it would be better suited to Window users, but I use it when I get those occasions where my Mac just loves to a hate my favorite website or a need website.

The company who makes this also has some other interesting software, such as nice pod-casting software and Windows Partition back up for the Mac. Here's a link to alot of their software, and the rest is at their home page Two Canoes Home

Just a little titbits of Google

I love finding Geekiness on the Web and in real life. I mean I about died when at a church retreat my speaker decided to use Star Wars quotes, or when you see a sign that says all your base belong to us. Anyway, since Google (our hoster) deciede to be geeky I would decide to post some of it's more Geeky areas on the Web. My first is when I was going through Google Operating System and saw some of Google so called easter eggs.

Here's an acutually Easter Egg from Google

And here is what you get when you try to do Google Doc's on Opera or Safari (My two favorite browsers!!

I have to admit the fact that I have a Violate intergalactic law... but so has COW!!! So at least I won't be going to jail soon... Unless:

Scenerio 4 happens here, but mostly I'll be dead... or the end of the world will happen and I'll still be dead....

Ahh.. though I never have been to be the one to Learn the intricacies of L33t (meaning L33t is all I can spell... Cow might be able to do more...) I find this page quite funny....

L33t Google

This and the last one of these links comes from a very weird source. It comes from This guy who has such wrong information that he should be arrested. Loco Google totally doesn't look like that!!!!

Loco Google

And the sweetest of all the ones I've seen so far...

They are such Good little boys aren't they?

All good Programmer love their Moms!!!!

I love Irony

Well it has come to my attention that Apple is filing a new patent. I'm sure your thinking what's so important about that, the I-phone has over 200 Hundred on it. Well this patent is on a technology called Double shot casting. This is a processes where they create double casting over an items that gives it that shimmering affect, like the Ipod with White or black under clear. Or....
The Brown over green over the Zune...
If this patent goes through... Well I think that Ipod daily news said it best

"Apple stands to make tens of dollars"

I should have known....

Anyway, if you haven't heard about this all ready, there is a document that was found against our favorite monopoly about how they threatened to withdraw Support for Microsoft Word from Apple computers. Link to Email (PDF)

This was when Apple was going through all the turmoil in 97 and I even heard only had the financing to run two more months,(the article also mentioned about what the memo mentioned about the Apple Evangelism group, I'll use that to time it cause I don't know where the article is) . Anyway, three months later Apple announces that it will be Partnering Microsoft to ship IE on all Macs and with an agreement to support Microsoft Word on Apple computers for the next five years. Yes, I Know this seems important by itself, but I think it shows a trend of Microsoft trying to tighten the noose on Apple, though if not to destroy it, at least control it.

Tightening the Noose

Anyway, back on track, I though about how this related to now. A few months ago Microsoft announced that the next version of Word would not run Marco based documents. Well this does not seem that important to most users, cause most of us don't even know what a Marco is... (I'm not even really sure) However, the article stated that many many companies use this in their documents for one reason or another. Well, so Microsoft is doing this so? Well, after this first article I had a small theory brewing about Microsoft, but I decided to shaft it to bad craftsmanship on Microsoft's case. However, then came around Vista EULA clause on Virtualazation.

Parallels on a Mac has become huge since the adoption of Intel Chips, and I see as a great thing for all software (actually if you notice on the bottom of the PDF file they are talking about the first real virtualazation software... I love irony). However, in the tiny print of Vista End User licensing Agreement, you'll notice that fine print about how that you
A) Cannot use the Home Editions on Virtualazation software (You have to go up Business or Ultimate)
B)That video content that is played with the license (like In2tv was till a couple days ago) would not be available
Though the second reason was told to be due to the fact they could protect it from hackers or malware, this all just backed up my claim even more

These incidents seem to bring my claim that Microsoft is trying to do what it did all those years ago to it's one most Mac Zealots would make, That Microsoft is trying to bring down Apple. However, you know it seem a little more insidious and underhanded this time, by slowing pulling away convenience away from Apple base products, slowly and surely they will pull away customers from Apple. I guess that the nature of the Monopoly beast, even though your making money off this stuff up the wazoo, you still try to tear down you enemies in the process. Sigh
