Sleeping

Sep 30 2007 Published by under Ramblings

Definitely unconventional…

I have a lifelong difficulty with falling asleep at night and then — even more problematic — staying asleep. I don’t have a medical cause for insomnia or any sleep disorders, just a brain that likes to go into overdrive when my body finally has a chance to lie down and rest.

At what point are you just eating ground-up beans?

The Lindt Excellence line of fine chocolate bars is widely available in the United States. Dark chocolate versions with 85% cocoa can be found with relative ease at chains as plebeian as Target. Such ubiquity is not shared by the 99% bar. For it, one must travel to a Lindt chocolate store. One exists in the Mall of America.

Eudora

W00t! Eudora is back!

Eudora, the email client that introduced many in the earlier days of the internet to email, officially died May 1, although not that many people noticed. Qualcomm decided to open source the Eudora code and the good folks at Mozilla have resurrected the once great desktop email client.

Steve Jobs

Sep 07 2007 Published by under Ramblings

This has got to be my favorite post from Cringely this year…

This week’s iPhone pricing story, in which Apple punished its most loyal users by dropping the price of an 8-gig iPhone from $599 to $399 less than three months after the product’s introduction, is classic Steve Jobs. It wasn’t an accident.

The Puppet Master: Love Steve Jobs or hate him, just don’t ignore him.
