Quote
In a move that has given many followers of the Microsoft-Google race for technological world domination a good chuckle, Microsoft has complained to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that Google possesses a monopoly of the internet. Ironic, in case you are unaware, because Microsoft controls 92 percent of the world’s computer operating systems.

This is hilarious XD talk about pot calling the kettle black

It's sad because it's true.

Apple just updated Safari so that you can choose between 3 default web search engines, Google, Bing or Yahoo.  I think everyone's a little wary with how powerful they are becoming.  I kind of feel sorry for Microsoft.  I think Ballmer is dragging them down.  Everything they do lately seems to be reactionary, rather than innovative.  Like this story below.  This is for programs that aren't even close to out yet.  By the time it does come out, Apple's stuff could be free, or completely different from what it is now.

Sega Uranus, when did Apple do that?  I've heard regular people complaining about that, but I haven't heard about Apple doing it.  Although I think it's tacky.

On the flip side, I was in a computer store when I heard the guy telling people that Apple stole the lower-case i at the beginning of the iPod from iRiver.  I pointed out that he was wrong.  iMacs came out in 1996.  There are all kinds of companies that do it, but they all are trying to cash in on Apple's success.  Either because it's some kind of accessory for an Apple product, or because they hope people buy the wrong thing by accident.  like this...

Yeah, I agree.  My iPhone 3G is still working great, so I don't know that I'll get one.  my wife has y 1st Generation iPhone and the volume buttons go down, but not up, so I think she'll be getting one.
