  1. There’s going to be lot people talkin’ smack on this forum. But that may lead to more hits for MDN.

    Of course that could result in more Hertz for your CPU.

    Not the funniest perhaps but I thought I’d take a whack at it.

  2. If Apple was selling enough ipods and imacs, they wouldnt be showing off their new york city store on their web site to get attention and they certainly wouldnt associate themselves to some shoe company named Nike.

    Because high tech jobs can be linked through computers, they can be outsourced, which means America’s economy can not grow any more. it can only go down.

    I expect massive layoffs in the future as automated software will be able to get work done and replace 1000’s of workers.

    at the same time a lot of other jobs will be outsourced.

    this can mean only 1 thing..

    a) another ressesion
    b) a 1987 style market crash.

  3. The user isn’t “switching to Windows;” the user is “switching windows.” Both applications shown (as far as I can tell), are running in Mac OS X. This isn’t about switching platforms with a smack, it’s about shuffling through open windows. I think it’s pretty cool!
