Today is July 4, Independence Day here in the US. So I’m taking the day off from updating the blog. I’ll be doing some work on and off through the day, between the festivities.

Cringely Claims the PC is Done

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:36 am

Specifically, he states that you’re now using your second-to-last PC ever. I disagree: The PC is a business tool, not consumer electronics.

I’ve been using Windows 8 for a while now. Let me tell you: It really sucks. I wrote before that I didn’t like it, but being forced to use Windows 8, especially under the guise of trying to write a book for beginners, is very painful.

How to Buy that Over-Priced Ink

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Printers are cheap! Ink is expensive. So expensive, I don’t need to tell you. The entire Ink Refill On-The-Cheap industry proves it. Hell, printer ink is probably the most expensive liquid substance you can buy. But that’s not my topic.
