Have you ever listened to the snow? No?

Listen. Carefully.

You have to be so very quiet that you can almost hear your own heartbeat. There may not seem to be a sound, but there is. It’s a soft “scoosh… scoosh… scoosh” when the flakes hit.

The world falls silent, as the blanket of snow muffles the sounds of the modern world. Go outside, and listen to the snow.

The Dog Laughed at Me February 14, 2007

So I’m taking the dog out to put him on his chain, part of my morning ritual. Since I’ll be going back inside, I’m just wearing a polo shirt in the freezing cold. I’ll be driving the van again today (too much ice for the S2000), so I’ve got the keys in my left hand, and the dog’s collar in my right.

In a wonderful twist of irony, Michael Dell is finding himself in the same position that Steve Jobs found himself a few years ago. Dell, once the darling of the PC-compatible market, now finds itself playing catchup to HP, and wondering why the market never responded to its music player offerings.

In an surprising turn of events, the Vista version of Microsoft’s own antivirus solution, “Live OneCare,” has failed to meet Virus Bulletin’s VB100 certification. This follows closely on the heels of Apple recommending that iTunes users not upgrade to Vista due to incompatibilities.

Strangely, neither Apple nor Microsoft officials could be reached for comment. (This is most likely because it was nearly midnight when I wrote this, but also had to do with me not trying to reach anyone at those companies for a comment.) Reportedly though, laughter could be heard from near Cupertino. (more…)

Large corporations tend to copy each other. They copy management styles and productivity themes. If you lived in corporate American in the 90’s and early 00’s, you saw your cheese move, learned to catch falling co-workers in woodland settings, and learned quality control the “six sigma” way.

In an apparent attempt to match the stupidity of the National Football League, Microsoft is taking a… well, proactive approach to learning more about the Asian markets where the xBox is apparently not doing well.
