Watson, Konfabulator and Grapes. For the sake of customers, Apple needs to improve relations with third-party developers, but Watson and Konfabulator are really bad poster children to hold up.

Why'd the Democrats lose in 2000? Larry Eastw00d sez it's 'cause they're aborting potential voters. ROE v. GORE?

John Kerry: Leaving Blacks cold - a nice article on Kerry's, uh, issues.
John Kerry's first move to secure their enthusiastic support might have been simply to follow Hippocrates' instruction: do no harm. But when he appeared before the National Conference of Black Mayors in April, Kerry chose to speak not about their concerns but about his plan to make the U.S.'s chemical plants more secure.

Mac OS X.4 "Tiger" Shots Leaked? - Among the features of interest: (1) Something called Dashboard (Looks like a shareware ripoff), (2) Searching system prefs which involves highlighting, (3) And firewall upgraded to a stealth firewall. As of now, I'm not sure if it's worth upgrading, unless they throw in iLife '04 and some SPEED BUMPS (which is also supposedly included). WWDC...here goes the stock price!@$

Roger Ebert on Shrek 2:

The movie has several songs, none of which I found very memorable, although of course I am the same person who said the Simon and Garfunkel songs in "The Graduate" were "instantly forgettable."

Roger Ebert on Fahrenheit 9/11:

"In your articles discussing Michael Moore's film 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' you call it a documentary. I always thought of documentaries as presenting facts objectively without editorializing. While I have enjoyed many of Mr. Moore's films, I don't think they fit the definition of a documentary."

That's where you're wrong.

oh snap!

Gore: Fellow Democrat "treacherous," "dishonest" - First, he steps out of beat in the 2000 election by thinking he knows how to run a campaign better than those who win them. Then, he steps out of beat in '04 by endorsing Dean at a time when people don't really endorse - especially people with a shred or two of dignity left. Now this. I think the APPLE MOJO's gone to his head. I don't care what Gore thinks of Miami-Dade's mayor, but someone has to step in and start putting up an effective opposition to the neoconservatism, and infighting ain't the way.

Mel Karmazin resigns as President of Viacom - Whoa...didn't see that one comin'!#@

Farenheit 9/11 has Bush Sr. boiling - Considering this is the same generation of Bush that lambasted The Simpsons, I'm not particularly concerned...nevertheless:

We asked what he thought of Moore's use of the comment Barbara Bush made at the start of the Iraq war: "Why should we hear about body bags, and deaths? ... Why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that? And watch [my son] suffer."

Said her furious husband: "For him to take on Barbara is just beyond the pale. She's a decent, wonderful person, and to have to answer anything about what that slimeball says is just too much."

Informed of Bush's tirade, Moore told us he had "fond memories" of "41" asking for a print of his movie "Roger & Me" to show at Camp David in the winter of 1990.
