This is really too funny - some Microsoft employee ran a test last weekend to see what search engine was more relevant... that soon devolved into a mess. But this quote from the pollster is priceless:

Indeed, Kordahi eventually yanked all the poll results altogether, complaining about "some douche gaming the system."

It really is pretty amazing that these captains of industry and masters of the universe will stoop to, on all sides.

Five Reasons Why Developers are Switching to Mac... really?

| Comment

Interesting post over at smashingmagazine...Not sure I agree with all five reasons... I can see if you are a developer and work either for yourself or you are in a position to make that decisions that will effect an enterprise-wide change in your firms development/deployment environment... if not you may not have much of a choice.

Five Reasons Why Developers are Switching to Mac

Designers and developers have many choices to make when it comes to getting work done, from what frameworks, languages, and image editing software to use, to what platform to run. The latter is an oft debated and controversial topic and the mere mention of it risks setting off flame wars of epic proportions, so in the interest of sanity, we'll try to avoid any direct comparisons to other operating systems.

It's no secret that there has been a growing trend in recent years toward developers, especially of the web variety, choosing a Mac as their main dev machine. In this two-part series, we will examine some of the reasons behind this trend, look at some of the pitfalls of switching to the Mac, and go over the must-have software and configurations every switcher should be aware of.

Anthony, you have been Mac guy since the Mets where actually a good team... any thoughts?

I love Twitter

Ok, I finally get it... we all need to know exactly what others in our so called social network are up to at any given time. Like when I wake up in the morning, I make sure I quickly twitter, usually some short and sweet tweets like this:

- Making some coffee, I hate Mondays!!!
- Getting dressed now, need some new clothes
- Leaving for work now, I should get there soon

This way others feel more connected to me... not only that, but I can show others in my network how important I am. So I may drop some tweets like this, once I get to work:

- Sitting in LAX waiting for my flight to Sydney for the Web Strategic Summit 09
- Sitting in first class...hope they play "Dream Girls"
- Just arrived in Sydney...these people talk funny

So you see, this is why you too should Twitter... and Twitter as often as you can... get connected, stay connected... embrace the universal connectedness to your peers.
