Remember the Big Beer Ad? Well, some guys over at Studiomuscle did a cute little parody called "Small Beer Ad."

And with that it must be time for the weekend.

Do you want to write a Windows Vista book? I know of a book publisher (not Wiley) that is looking for Windows Vista authors. If interested, just leave a note and how to get ahold of you here.

While I was taking the week off, I missed Windows 95's birthday. Joe Wilcox didn't, though, and asked "where's the hoopla?" Give us three weeks, Joe, and we'll see ya at the PDC.

I wonder if I still have my Windows 95 gold disk somewhere? Hmm, probably down in the garage along with my other nicknacks from the 90s.

Adobe Blogger John Nack: The Killing's Gotta Stop.

Has anyone else had enough of these "Microsoft Acrylic is the [Photoshop/Flash/Illustrator/FreeHand/Fireworks/etc.] Killer!" articles?

I agree with John. Personally, taking over Adobe's market just isn't gonna happen -- at least not near term and not without Adobe stumbling badly (InDesign took over from a company, Quark, that forgot about customer service). But journalists and bloggers love to report on conflict. So, expect more "killers" ahead!

Update: sorry for not linking to John's blog originally.

Nice to see the Seattle Bloggers featured in the local newspaper (Seattle PI).

I'm looking for an FM transmitter for my cell phone so that I can listen to podcasts on my car stereo, so this Fall 2005 MF Transmitter Shootout will come in handy.

MSN is trying out a new look and feel on -- not sure this one was supposed to get noticed. Someone posted it over on Channel 9. Demonstrates that you can't play around in public without someone noticing.

Interesting, Dave Taylor is reporting that Aaron Wall is getting sued over comments left in his comments. Yet another reason to moderate your comments and/or turn them off.

Dare Obasanjo: Yestertday in Instant Messenger News (actually the day he was talking about was Tuesday) but MSN and Google were going at it again with dual product announcements. I see that Joe Beda helped out on the Google Talk team and is coming to the PDC. Ahh, so that's what they were doing in the Kirkland office...

This is hillarious. Over on Channel 9 there's an customer who is an artist, Jamie, who draws these parodies of South Park. Here's his latest: GooglePark: Scoble goes to Google.

My coworker Michael Lehman is interviewed by John Furrier on his podcast. Michael is doing podcasts on Channel 9, among other places.

Took much of the week off of blogging. I've just been sick. Not fun. I'm coming out of it, though. Well, that and I have been overloaded with videos for the PDC. Oh, and Adam and Charles have been busy on a redesign of Channel 9. That turned on last night. Check it out. Ahh, that RSS and tagging stuff is gonna be big someday I tell ya!
