Tried selling a used iMac on Amazon, almost fell for a Nigerian scam!  Think I would be more tech savvy...

New article up on anewdomain.net, what Apple adding a fingerprint reader to the next iPhone could mean for users. The thumb is the key!

Getting to meet Brent Spiner ("Data" from Star Trek TNG) was very cool. Thinking of skyping in Maddie (a Star Trek fan) so she could talk with him too was extra cool!

Never met Balmer but always thought of him as an a-hole (due to my understanding of the things he did at Microsoft, like drive them to being a badly behaved monopoly.  Interesting different view from Gina.

Thanks Chris. It was a great memorial service yesterday too. Amazing how many people he knew. Let's hope the Pats win one for him next weekend.
