Will Apple's power-trio repeat Macintosh history?. So here's the rub: the scenario is fascinating because it's eerily familiar. Can you think of any other proprietary Apple technology that the company so adamantly refused to license for most of its existence? Here's a clue: it starts with Mac... By Ken "Caesar" Fisher. [Ars Technica]

This is clueless thinking and revisionist history. Apple did license its OS. First, it allowed Micro$ucks to make a clone of it (Windows) with a lousy contract that gave away the technology forever for a fixed price (Duh!), then it tried to go the clone route and it almost went bankrupt. What people do not understand is that anyone can make an iPod killer (or at least they can try), the biggest difference between the iPods and its future clones will be Fairplay and the ability to play music from the premier online store. Nobody mentions the fact that the current crop of non-iPod Mp3 players do not work with the Apple Store, which is by far the dominant force in the business. If they did they would be stronger competition for the iPod... and that's where the money is. Since you can't make money selling music online is going to be mighty hard to make money selling tools to sell music online.

The Average PC is Infested with Spyware [Slashdot]

How is that news? The news would be an in-depth investigation of how many people know what spyware is and how many of those that are aware of it know that this ia another problem that is unknown outside the Windows World... Use AdAware to get rid of most Spyware.

All day
Staring at the ceiling
Makin' friends with shadows on my wall
All night
Hearing voices telling me
that I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something
Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
and I don't know why

Well I'm not crazy
I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay a while and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy
I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
- Matchbox 20, Unwell
