Yes she may be a bit young for him, but we all know that Tom Cruise is a lucky man. Miss Holmes is going to be in Batman Returns which is coming bring released on June 15th. I try not to get too “teenage hormonal” on the blog here, but Happy Late Birthday (it’s June 8th) to me!

I’ve been reading blogs and news articles all afternoon and evening regarding this lawsuit filed by TigerDirect in regards to Apple Computer calling their latest release of MacOS X “Tiger” and I think I’m on to something that I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere else yet. Has it not crossed anyone else’s mind that TigerDirect is NOT an authorized Apple dealer like some other web electronic retailers? I can only imagine that a company like TigerDirect has wanted to get a piece of that pie and maybe have been rejected by Apple at some point. So now, they’ve waited til the eve of the OS 10.4 release in order to cause as much of a publicity craze as possible.

Well, it’s working. The whole blogosphere is buzzing. Now, this may seem like a frivelous lawsuit on the surface, but apparently TigerDirect does have “Tiger” trademarked, so, it will be an interesting case to follow.

Anyone else think I might have something here?

This has to be my favorite ad ever. Only my Linux friends will appreciate it though.
linux update
This ad came courtesy of TechBargains.com about 15 minutes ago and I’m still laughing about it. I’d actually be scared to run YaST online update and see how many updates SuSE thinks I need.

And yes, that’s a tad new bit-o-code down there around that image of the Airbus. I got the idea from Audrey @ Star-Shaped.org and then peeked at her CSS, made a few modifications (didn’t need the clear: element), and added it to my own CSS.

airbus a380

Eric is probably going to be upset that I scooped him on this, but the brand spankin’ new Airbus A380 had it’s very first flight today. To say that this plane is incredible would be a vast understatement. I’ve done some reading on it and saw a cool TLC or Discovery documentary a month or two back and the size of this plane and the technology in it is just mind blowing. You can view pictures and even some cool video clips at the Airbus website. In one of the articles, Jacques Rosay (Chief Test Pilot) is quoted as saying it was “like handling a bicycle.”

Steve Jobs is not known as one who bites his tongue. Jobs had a few words for Gates’ new baby, Longhorn:

“They are shamelessly copying us,” he said during Thursday’s annual meeting… “They can’t even copy fast,” he said.
