No, I'm not related to the Civil War General.
This is my personal weblog. If my employer has a problem with it, I'll have to hire a new employer.

The Grand Unified Wafer

"Disks are a hack, not a design feature". So says Alan Cooper in About Face 2.0:The Essentials of Interaction Design. "They are a compromise, a dilution of the solid-state architecture of digital computers" he argues.

I agree but that doesn't go far enough. All non-silicon systems are hacks. We need the entire computer on a single piece of silicon, including the power supply, display and other IO. I call this computer The Grand Unified Wafer. Until then, we'll need the hardware folks ;-)

I heard the message loud and clear. We're tired of the tired old 'rock and roll' banality that Springsteen and Sheryl Crow/Kid Rock and the others tried so hard to sell tonight.

Tonight, music won. Thanks Nora.

Negotiated DRM

The RIAAs pro-consumer spin is transparent. They found technology partners that are as scared of customers as they are.

I want my iSUV

The new 17-inch Powerbook is cool. The new software is cool. Apple is cool.

I suddenly have the overwhelming compulsion to learn Objective C and Cocoa....just so I can be cool.
