2 notes about hands-on people.
First, a heartwarming one about a 101 year old father with a special needs daughter. Courtesy of the Guardian.
The 2nd – photos of Bill Gates. It was his birthday on October 28.
Without a doubt it’s the best version of Windows.
I’ve been using it since the beta without a hitch.
Jump lists, window & tab previews, easy window manipulation, stability, and security.
Also cool if you pair it with the new Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000. First set of hardware with features specific to Windows 7.
Can’t wait for November 10!
One of my favorite authors, Douglas Coupland, has a new book coming out. Generation A.
Description from Amazon:
“Generation A is set in the near future in a world where bees are extinct, until five unconnected people from around the world — in the United States, Canada, France, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka — are all stung. Their shared experience unites them in ways they never could have imagined.
Generation A mirrors Coupland’s debut novel, 1991′s Generation X. It explores new ways of storytelling in a digital world. Like much of Coupland’swriting, it occupies the perplexing hinterland between optimism about the future and everyday apocalyptic paranoia. Imaginative, inventive, and fantastically entertaining, Generation A is his most ambitious work to date.”
