+ - Xenon: An Inspired Web Project->

Submitted by
dandart
dandart writes "Back in October '08, I wrote "5 Things I Wish Linux Had" but never realized that it would inspire the heated debate (Read the comments) that it did. I also didn't realize that it would inspire an actual operating system. One of my readers commented briefly that he would take on the project. With the inspired words, "Alright then.

+ - Will Lintel Replace Wintel and iStuff?->

Submitted by

dandart

More likely it's that the COOL-ER reader is over $100 less expensive than the Kindle!"

dandart writes "Yesterday, Apple announced significant price drops on many of its consumer products including the iPhone and Mac Air. This is an unusual move by Apple since it carefully controls its pricing--so much so that rarely, if ever, do its products go "on sale." So what's up with this big price drop? Is Apple out to "get" Linux?"
