steve ballmer iphone 1 Steve Ballmer Does Not Understand the iPhone

While promoting Windows 7 improvements Steve Ballmer scorned the idea that smart phones could unseat PCs as the technology of choice for on-the-go consumers saying:

"Let’s face it, the Internet was designed for the PC. The Internet is not designed for the iPhone. That’s why they’ve got 75,000 applications, they’re all trying to make the Internet look decent on the iPhone."

Just a little correction. At the time Ballmer made this statement it was already well-known there are 85,000 apps. With the addition of new plugins for content management systems such as WordPress that allow sites to be viewed easily with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and other high-end phones, the 230,391,343 blogs that exist at this moment can be viewed easily, and those blogs look great. With the new plugins blogs don’t even have to make a special mobile friendly site anymore.

Try viewing NerdGrind in your high-end phone and you’ll see how wrong Ballmer is.

What’s worse for Microsoft investors is that Microsoft develops the Windows Mobile OS for phones, so maybe he meant the Internet doesn’t look good on Windows Mobile phones.

With the explosive growth of the iPhone and iPod Touch Ballmer might want to stop ignoring that market.

HSN Wii Fail

The Home Shopping Network host was demonstrating Wii tennis when his accessory flew into the TV. Yes he had the wrist strap secure, but not the plastic tennis racket attachment.

Always double check your wiimote, or you Wiil be sorry.

internet explorer google chrome greeting 1 Google Tries to Convert Internet Explorer Users to Become Chrome Users

If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer you may have noticed the message above when you visited the Google homepage. Google is doing everything they can to entice IE users to become Google Chrome converts.

Whoever controls the browser controls a large portion of both the desktop, and the Internet. Maybe Microsoft should consider making their browser lighter and faster.

I Just Made Love Map Site

i just made love 2 I Just Made Love Map Site

A new web site called I Just Made Love has sprung up that allows lovers to brag about their lovemaking and put it on a map where others can see where the deed was done (indoor or outdoor), and in what positions (5 in all).

The site uses Google Maps with a new feature, Love Making View.

Based on the blue and pink figures we are assuming this is a heterosexual site only.

The site just went online, but it’s already so popular it keeps getting overloaded. Time to add more servers.
