Doom!

Ha!, I but you thought I was gonna start today with talk about the Motorola/iTunes phone. Today I thought... let me get a little game news first. Well lets start with this, IGN has a video insde look at first-person shooter game turned movie DooM. The video features commentary by the movie producers, id Software employees, Karl Urban who plays John Grimm, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who plays Sarge.


StarCraft Update
Blizzard has put out a new patch for StarCraft (1.13d). So for all who enjoy this classic game, get your patch on!



FEMA to Mac and Linux users: drop dead
A quote from Sandy McMurray:
Microsoft, monopoly in America? What's that? Antitrust? C'mon, we have bush in office. What's even more sad is that the web site (FEMA) seems to be fully compatible with Mac users when their browsers identify themselves as IE6. Who would have thought MS's monopolistic arms would be preventing you from using a Federal Emergency system which was funded by our tax dollars."

While anyone can browse the site, users of non-IE browsers will find this message waiting for them when they attempt to register.

In order to use this site, you must have JavaScript Enabled and Internet Explorer version 6.
Download it from Microsoft or call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) to register.
Something so minor has become a considerable problem for relief workers, who are attempting to setup as many kiosks as possible for evacuee's.Workers would prefer to avoid setting up Windows XP workstations because they take longer to setup, and even longer to properly patch and configure for use. Also, a Windows XP SP1 box can be compromised in 4 minutes flat. While Service Pack 2 and recent updates undoubtedly improve XP's defenses, techs are wary of using the OS in this situation.

This adds to the frustration of survivors lucky enough to be able to access a Mac or Linux computer, and to the reported consternation of disaster relief teams on the ground.
Please continue to help Call 1-800-HELP-NOW or visit Red Cross.org or donate through the iTunes Music Store



iTunes 5

According to MacWorld Jobs rolled out iTunes 5, "an update to the popular software Apple makes available for Mac and Windows users alike. He described the new version's interface as sporting "a little bit of a refined look." It's available today as a free download from Apple's Web site.( not available at post time)

Users can now organize playlists into folders, and new search capabilities have been added. Windows users can now automatically synchronize contact and calendar information using iTunes 5 and Microsoft's Outlook and Outlook Express software.

A "Smart Shuffle" feature has been added that lets users control how likely they are to hear multiple songs from the same artist or the same album using a preference slider. "We've got a lot of people saying our shuffle is not random," mused Jobs.

Parental controls have also been added to help parents restrict purchases of music that contains explicit lyrics through the iTunes Music Store."

There's nothing here for Microsoft to worry about right?, according to the LA Times.com Gates said "We have to run everything," he said. "Our first graphics interface was on the Macintosh. We've always done well on Macs.

Office is the biggest selling Mac software, often considered more feature rich, if a little slower, than the Windows version. It is developed almost in isolation from the rest of the company in the Mac Business Unit." The MBU's director of product management and marketing, Scott Erickson, says he still gets a kick out of taking his PowerBook out at meetings.

"We don't see Apple as a rival,' he said. 'We see it as another vendor."

Could this be true?, can Gates see Apple as just a vendor?. With Apple Stock growing at such a fast pace lately, every car wanting in on iPod connectivity, He must see the headlines like Apple iTunes seizes 80% UK market.

I think I smell fear. Because Microsoft is showing it

I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
To my lovely wife Donna... Love you Baby!
