For years Apple has mocked MS for copying their OS ideas. Most of these are related to the user interface, and honestly Apple has typically been in the lead in the traditional mouse and keyboard based space. However Windows 7 is going to put Apple behind the eight-ball.
Cleverly MS has used PDC put Windows 7 in the hands of the press. Now, whatever Apple Demos - at Macworld will look like a copy of 7.
MS clearly will revolutionize windows managment wiht the gestures coming in 7. I have been playing with them, and wow - do simplify things. The tile and maximize edge responce is also a dramatic move forward. They are excellent.
I got all giddy when I thought of these things coupled with Max OS X's Expose - and then I realized this: If Apple doesn't want to be the copy cat (pun intended) they will have to do better than this - and that will be hard.
Apple - this time you may have been outwitted by MS.

1.) A Country that looks to and depends on the federal government rather than the state and local governments.
2.) A societal mind-set that is relativistic.
3.) An economy that is moving toward socialism.
4.) An elite group (wealthy & educated, communicating how they "think it should be") ruling the working class (in debt, under educated, frustrated that "it isn't how it should be.")

I don't say this proudly (ok maybe I do). But I'm really tired or arm chair politicians and their complaining.
All three representatives have contact forms on their websites and I imagine nearly every representative has one. I urge you all to contact them also. For those in Ohio I have included the links for Brown's and Voinovich's sites.
Please take 5 minutes to make contact. It doesn't do us any good to complain from a far.
Please note this is not targeted to anyone receiving this as backlash for something else. I just feel very strongly about this and need to share it. The links are below:
For those in ohio 16th:

I make no bones about it - I'm a Christian. Do live a sinless life? No. However, I try to get closer to Jesus and God through the power of the Holy Spirit. I think I'm just as much a Christian as any devote Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, etc. (excuse me if I left out your denomination).
Dr. James Dobson infuriates me when he begins to talk about politics. Read my latest reason why!
First off, I am not going to vote for Obama - for this reason - I don't believe that government is good at solving social problems. I believe it is my job to be active in helping "the least of these." Just voting to for someone who wants to in enact social programs is a cop out. Christians are commanded to actively minister in these ways on their own effort - not through the guise of government.
Now this brings me to the James Dobson article. Dobson - who has already stated he wouldn't be voting for McCain has now begun to attack Obama, only to make himself and conservative Christians look foolish. By pulling excepts of a 2006 Obama speech, all Dobson has done is proven Obama's points 1.) Some "rules" of the Bible seems silly in today's context. 2.) Christians need to do a better job of communicating about Christianity to today's culture. Dobson in his critique proved Obama's points.
Jim - Please go do an intensive study in sharing one's faith in today's global culture before you open your mouth next time and speak about politics. I'm tired of removing your foot from my mouth while talking to those I'm trying to witness to when politics come up. Better yet - please stick to what you do best - which is telling me how to focus on my family (for which you have really blessed my life and helped with my parenting techniques).

Yesterday I added a new feature to the site . . . check out the right and you can see the Doug Cam.
A couple of things to point out: I work in the basement (again) however, it is really the best "office" I have ever been in. The desk is really nice and the I have a window and door.
Why am I doing this? Well, I'm not sure. But I enjoy being a geek and so this is fun for me.

There are some things I want to see and most can be solved with unsupported 3rd party applications. I'm waiting for the SDK to come before I pass too much judgment. Here is my list (after the break)
