Close Before Opening

Yes.  I see what you’re saying, but I’m not quite sure you mean what you think you do.

What on Earth Are They Thinking?

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Ok Lenovo.  Let’s talk.  Man to company.

I used to be a huge ThinkPad fan.  Huge.  My parents worked for IBM for a bunch of years and we used to have at least 3 ThinkPads floating around the house at any given time.  They were great, tough little machines.

I had my doubts when IBM sold their ThinkPad line to you.  On one hand, IBM’s quality control had shrunk to the point where it was basically non-existent, so I couldn’t imagine another company doing worse than Big Blue already was.  Still, I was skpetical enough to start buying Mac.

But I was curious enough to keep my eye on you.  And you certainly did come out with some little gems. Your X Tablet series with the pivoting screen that turns into a writing tablet? Genius.  Really, you outdid yourself with that one.  My brother has had one since they came out and loves it.

So what’s with the W700DS?  What the heck is that?

Have you ever watched The Prisoner?  If yes, you’re going to love this.  If not, you’d better get cracking!  It’s amazing.  And A&E now has all of the 17 episodes up online.



And you can read more about it on VSL

MacBook Wheel Announced

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

I love The Onion:

My favorite part is the end:

“Thank you for that, Jeff.  It remains to be seen whether the MacBook Wheel will catch on in the business world where people use computers for actual work and not just dicking around.”
