Scott Falconer writes "I think I'm going to put this up in the break room at work. Each month violates a specific design heuristic, but is presumably still usable. Be aware though: "Violating yet another usability guideline, the file is formatted to print on European-sized paper, and there doesn't seem to be a version designed for American paper sizes." http://www.iallenkelhet.no/bad-usability-calendar- 2007-is-here"

Can Apple Penetrate the Corporation? 500

from the awareness-gap dept.
coondoggie sends us a NetworkWorld story on the prospects for Apple gaining market share in the corporation. A number of factors are helping to catch the eye of those responsible for upgrading desktops and servers, the article claims: "Apple's shift to the Intel architecture; the inclusion of infrastructure and interoperability hooks, such as directory services, in the Mac OS X Server; dual-boot capabilities; clustering and storage technology; third-party virtualization software; and comparison shopping, which is being fostered by migration costs and hardware overhauls associated with Microsoft's Vista." On this last point, one network admin is quoted: "The changes in Vista are significant enough that we think we can absorb the change going to Macs just as easily as going to Vista."

The major difference between bonds and bond traders is that the bonds will eventually mature.
