Idiot gets prize for leaving door unlocked.

Link here

Apparently this dude got off of the train and went to his car only to find a 15,000.00 ring sitting in a seat with a note. The note read:
"Merry Christmas. Thank you for leaving your car door unlocked. Instead of stealing your car I gave you a present. Hopefully this will land in the hands of someone you love, for my love is gone now. Merry Christmas to you."

Bullhonkey. First of all, why would some dude just thank someone for leaving the car door unlocked. Did this apparently Rich man just sleep there in this random dude's car for the night? in Boston? Freezing his butt off without heat?

Why would someone that could afford to buy a 15,000 ring for his engagement need to sleep in a car? BS. BS. BS.

Microsoft/MTV Urge users to ditch iTunes - vnunet.com

Microsoft can't let anyone compete with them, they always have to make a competing product. Because if MS doesn't make it, it's not worth anything.

To that I say, Up yours Microsoft. You know, I have hated MS for a long time, I refuse to buy their products, and I encourage all that I meet to do the same. I run 1 Windows machine in my house, and the only reason that I do is so that I can change my pay options (which require IE).

MS is cold, exacting, and heartless. Unfair and competitive. It's not like Microsoft is not making enough money as it is. Microsoft has so much money it could buy the presidency. Microsoft is so rich, and so utterly maniacal they can't help just bashing everyone that makes a competing product.

Apple invented the iPod. They didn't invent the Mp3 player. They didn't invent the music store. They invented a seamless and utterly simple user experience. Apple thinks years a…

I like to think that behind every good developer there is a good woman. No. A great woman. It takes a special breed to put up with the stuff that comes along with dating a computer nerd. Those of you who have ever been with a hard core geek know what I’m talking about. Some day I think it would be easier to date one of those guys who hangs out at the golf course all day with his buddies drinking beer.

This weekend I drove up from Nashville to see Justin. I knew he was busy with a Web development project, but I have dealt with that stuff before so it was no big deal. This particular project was for the Rails Day contest. This contest went from midnight on Friday to midnight on Saturday. While he was working I did some MacZealots work, caught up on sleep, cleaned the apartment and did the laundry. While I was folding some shirts I got to thinking about what life with a developer is like. I thought I would share my thoug…
