@JimmySlims As in, “The results are in, and I’m very sorry to have to tell you this Mr. LaHay, but evidentally you are a technosexual.”?
We need a new word for people who like and enjoy technology, but couldn’t give a shit about geek culture crap like Star Wars and Dr. Who.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the words “cosmologist” and “cosmetologist” are so similar. Not sure what I’m getting at.

@chartier I found a workaround in Apple’s forum for the spaces bug today. Use Secrets to relaunch the dock using only the keyboard.
.@chartier I totally agree re: Microsoft mice. IMHO mice is an area that Apple can’t hold a candle to Microsoft.
@JimmySlims Winter Games! I wonder if there’s a version of that anywhere online?
Having used Windows Mobile for a long time, I’m happy to see Microsoft’s plans, but only because it will push Apple to continue improving.
