what's hot what's not
Vaporware Marketing Department
In a surprising development from Redmond, the Microsoft® Internet Explorer 6 Public Preview site has been discovered! Before you rush over to screw up your computer, be advised that this is vaporware at it's finest. No Software, No Marketing, Cookies everwhere, and the bug reporting form. This may represent a major policy shift at the company that provides so much income for people to fix computers using Windows and MS products.
(Let's get the Public to test it, they'll believe anything.)

Yesterday, we noted that Courtney Love is taking her case to court.
In the short term, this case is about her, in the long term, this is about the rights of recording artists everywhere to receive fair compensation for their work. She notes that the Recording Industry has a 95% failure rate.
The Internet is allowing us to show everyone that the Emperor has no clothes. It is allowing us to shine lights into dark corners of human experience and illuminate what we find. The Music Industry is getting the spotlight. Courtney Love has a mission.
