And a few more things before they become old and stale.
- Word of the month:
gazebo. I didn't know it and now I ran into it twice in a short period of time – once in an episode of Daria and the other time in one of those Jonathan Franzen essays. I also sounds funny.
A resonable and moderate essay on GMail and its potential implications. In fact this probably gives more of the legal background than you'd usually care for. Privacy issues seem to involve quite a bit of legal hair-splitting. My take will of course remain, that my e-mail should be stored within my reach only. That's the best way to ensure it remains private. And using a free service that probably isn't obliged to do anything for you, just seems a bad idea. One day your e-mail is gone or sold. Tada.
Our favourite cartoonist about how todays cool may be boring and standard tomorrow.
Luckily the number of iPods I have spotted in this dump of a town is reassuringly single-digit.
A discussion of the whole security hole in OSX thing. That's the type of discussion I hoped to see.
bulett – a typo I like to make when wanting to type bullet. Note its relation to German Bulette, which is somewhere between a burger patty and a meat ball.
Just like my incapability to type the word post as I am hardwired to type my surname.

Actually it’s a bit less round and if you’re lucky it doesn’t move by itself.
More like this.
