Gotta love the irony. Microsoft was busted in France for illegally including the software code from another company in one of their products. Make me wonder what else might be included in Microsoft’s products without disclosure. [Thanks, Bruce.]
“Here at Backstreet Labs we have one of the largest collections of Happy Drinking Birds in captivity.” I gotta get me a drinking bird.
This article about the forced removal of Macs in the U.S. Senate offices is interesting. The Windows bigots who are setting the guidelines refuse to consider cross-platform solutions, even though it can be proven that a Microsoft-only solution costs more money. I wonder if they realize that Microsoft’s new software licensing rules are basically raping customers out of more money and that because of the monopoly status Microsoft has there is very little Microsoft-entrenched companies and organziations can do. Don’t misunderstand me. Microsoft makes some very nice software which I use it on a daily basis, but I am very much against Microsoft’s business practices of putting their customers between a rock and a hard place.
It’s good to see that the guys at Bungie haven’t lost their sense of humor by being under the Redmond Mothership. Pimps At Sea is a web page for a game that doesn’t exist. Methinks someone is blowing off steam; Ahoy Matey. [via Crummy]
