system technology designer accusing Microsoft of ripping of its patent for "tiles."
SurfCast, in a complaint filed yesterday in a U.S. District Court in Maine, said Microsoft infringes
one of its four patents — No. 6,724,403 — by "making, using, selling, and offering to sell devices
and software products" covered by SurfCast's patent. That includes mobile devices using the
Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems as well as PCs using Windows 8/RT.

I remember reading in Thomas Friedman's "The World is Flat" that the US always in-sourced more jobs than we ever out-sourced. And that all of the negative media against out-sourced jobs was misguided and uninformed. Maybe this is the case after all?
I need my caffeine but I'm not a fan of coffee. So I mix fruit juice with sugar free energy drinks. It's both refreshing and stimulating.
It's sort of clear now why BO backed down on this early.
I agree. I need small wireless mouse that would work with both my MacBook and my little AcerAspire netbook and the VX Nano fit the bill perfectly. I absolutely love this little mouse.
What about the high cost? The additional taxes? The new massive government bureaucracy? Public transportation is a huge money loser.
I would instead prefer tax incentives be use to spur the private sector.
Public transportation in the US is a huge money loser - so I'm guessing this is going to be as well. How much is this going to cost? Are the additional taxes going to be worth it? Do we need another, massive government bureaucracy?
I also just picked up one of these D150 Acers and I love it. Ubuntu makes a distro with very good hardware support as well as Atom optimizations called Ubuntu Netbook Remix and it's great. http://www.canonical.com/projects/ubuntu/unr
I've been playing with the nightly build of Ubuntu Netbook Remix (a distro that's optimized for netbooks with the Intel Atom processors, and based on Ubuntu 9.04) and I have to say that it's great if you are a Linux user. All of the hardware is supported at the moment except for the built in mic (the mic jack works). http://www.canonical.com/projects/ubuntu/unr
You mean worse than the old boss.
