Modern life got in the way again.

[Insert four-letter word here]

Work.

Need I say any more...

    Apple To Remove Java from Mac OS X?

    After the news that the new MacBook Air netbooks do not ship with Flash pre-installed it may be that Apple will be removing its  own Java runtime from Mac OS X.
    In the release notes for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3:
    "As of the release of Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3, the version of Java that is ported by Apple, and that ships with Mac OS X, is deprecated...

    "This means that the Apple-produced runtime will not be maintained at the same level, and may be removed from future versions of Mac OS X. The Java runtime shipping in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, will continue to be supported and maintained through the standard support cycles of those products."
    Some Java support was removed a while ago...

    Ubuntu's First Commercial

    If you haven't seen the first 'official' Ubuntu brand commercial, take a minute to do so.

    The animation is very good; bouncy, happy, bright and snappy. I like the visuals.

    I'm just not convinced about the message.

    It tries to answer the question What is Ubuntu?

    And completely fails. Utterly.
