Tracy Hooten, one of three students who created the site StudentTabletPC (www.studenttabletpc.com), was also quoted.

Top 10 lies of engineers from Guy Kawasaki

The blogosphere is buzzing today with hundreds of reactions to Guy Kawasaki’s post on the top lies of engineers. It’s funny that there is such a gulf between the business and engineering side of software development — and this gulf tends to get larger after each unsuccessful product release. I respect developers and their patience. […]

Cool accessory connects iPod to your TV

I was checking out the new Time magazine and saw a blurb on the Home Dock Delux from Digital Lifestyle Outfitters. This little gadget docks and charges your iPod and connects to your TV.

Running Windows on my Mac — Thanks Parallels!

Is work “work” when it’s fun? Three words: Parallels is amazing. Tonight I configured Parallels so I can launch and run Windows on my Mac. Have I said “amazing” yet?

Facebook takes $25MM … not up for sale

According to Silcon Beat, Facebook isn’t looking for suitors, but instead took $25MM in cash from Greylock Partners, Meritech, Accel Partners, and Peter Thiel, a former chief exec from PayPal. The article reports that David Sze from Greylock said, “is a ‘winner-circle’ company.” Ya…like you wouldn’t say that after dumping cash into Facebook. I’d agree […]

Parallels to the rescue

I’m one step closer to living entirely off my MacBook. I’d read about Parallels before and became more interested when BootCamp appeared on the scene.
