Friday Randomness

Apparently the iPhone will not be an "open platform." This is a shame. The device is just begging to become a platform for Dashboard widgets performing home automation wirelessly via touchscreen. Apple is two inches away from making this phone a full-fledged PDA. Make the jump, give us some love. Disallow third-party widgets over EDGE, I won't complain.

Paul Ford is back in full force. If he's not in your aggregator, give a visit. I recommend The Alley Watchers and The Thumb-sized Heart of TK the Cat for starters.

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade will be released next Tuesday. I hear the Nashua Best Buy will have a midnight release, but given the population density it may be a crowded store. Anyone looking to be in W. Lebanon at \~8:00 AM on Tuesday should get in touch with me. (Time subject to change. I will be there before the doors open.)
