This story is incredible. At least, all computer scientists should read it; but really everyone should. It's long, but WELL worth it.

It's like reading a Dan Brown and/or Michael Crichton novel... except it's true! Very interesting read.

Yes it is in Seattle and it would require me moving. Thus, even if I was interested in leaving Microsoft, I wouldn't do it.

They used LinkedIn to contact me.

$5 Best Buy reward zone certificate? That seems as good of reason as any to buy a $100 Apple T.V.

I bought some stuff on apple's video store (t.v. shows mostly, Survivor and the Amazing Race seasons). I hook my laptop up to my t.v. to watch them, which is annoying. I would mainly use it to have all of the content on my desktop (big hard drive) and not have to hook up my laptop each time I want to watch something.
