news of 2004-06-22

Those unnecessary comments...

There are two kinds of unnecessary comments. The one sort are comments like I've made in that news blurb about the U.S. Army buying Xserves. Believe me, I know that we shouldn't mix Macintosh news with politics. The other sort of unnecessary comments: Flame mails. ;-) Believe me: I won't change my mind politically, just because someone tells me to f*! off and that he or she won't read my site any longer. I tend to believe in freedom, and freedom of speech especially. So if I once in a while hurt your nationally challenged feelings, please feel free to ignore that. It's not as if I personally attacked you. I just share the opinion of the _others_ if you happen to feel attacked. That said, back on topic. Or at least almost... I'm the proud owner of a Gmail account now. I'm testing this for a while and will give a short report soon. First impressions: Webmail done right. It's fast, easy and gives everything one needs - besides POP3 or IMAP access, that is. I wonder how much I'll miss that after a while, since basically, it's just a matter of adapting to a new 'mail application', which I've successfully done before. However, was and is quite good, and I continue to use that for my main accounts.

Apple sells 1566 dual Xserves

... to the U.S. Army research, according to this news article. A good sale for Apple. However, I'm not really a fan of the U.S. Army. But maybe this supercomputer will find out that the US should stop bringing war to the world and instead focus on peace a bit more?
