Scripting News for 9/15/07

Today’s links 

Scoble’s story of today’s adventures. Blogging at its best, imho. It was a really great day. Hey I met someone who’s likely to be a friend for a long time. He was less than two days old. As I was dropping Robert and Patrick off I thought this kid is going to have a lot of role models. 🙂

Al Jazeera: “Nearly 200 protesters have been arrested during a march in Washington DC held to demand the return of troops from Iraq and the impeachment of George Bush, the US president.”

Miguel de Icaza on new firmware for iPods that make it impossible to use one with any OS other than Windows or Macintosh. Maybe it’s time for us all to get together and build an open source and completely open MP3 player, without any of the taxes Apple imposes. It’s too important a product to leave to one company.

New Mac Mini notes 

I bought a new Mac Mini today, it’s my second, the old one is way slow and old and doesn’t do the latest 802.11n tricks, and the disk is small. The new Mini is for the TV room and the old one will become a server. So now it’s time to master VNC and Chicken of the VNC. This was a topic of discussion here on 11/20/06.

Ooops, it turns out the new Mac Mini does not support 802.11n. Oy.

    I don’t think the new Mac Mini does 802.11n either…

    Oh yeah, the Mac Mini’s are great. I love them. I have 5 now, a mix of G4, Core Duo, and Core 2 Duo versions. Amazing little computers! Even without 802.11n, they are still great.


  3. If it’s a critical issue for you, QuickerTek has a solution… but its a PITA to open those Minis up.
