Apple: You can service it with a wooden stick

Direct from the Apple Service Guide for a PowerMac
Screw a cup hook into the center of the remaining rivet and holding onto the hook, rock the rivet back and forth until you work it out of the heatsink cover. Note: You may find it useful to insert a wooden stick into the hook to help pull out the rivet.
Yeah, they suggest you use a "wooden stick" while servicing the computer.

iPad...

It exceeds your ability to understand how it works and thus is magical...

Wow... I think I just got another reason not to buy this thing.

Apple is a lot like the "bad boy". They talk down to you and so you want them more. Unless you're smart... but hey, let's be honest.. you're not smart. You're an end user.

Apple: Think what we tell you to.

Firefox will burn...

Another great feature Chrome now has is the ability to add extensions (Firefox users, why are you still using Firefox?)

I've got a short list of my favorite extensions so far...

Google Mail Checker - Version: 3
Displays the number of unread messages in your Google Mail inbox. You can also click the button to open your inbox.

Google Reader Notifier (by Google) - Version: 1.1

Google Chrome hits another home run

Seriously, the new bookmark sync feature is awesome. I've never been happier to have sold my soul to Google.
