Register: Back in the Bloghouse. Great story. I’m going to have a lot to say about this. [Scripting News]
Back in the Bloghouse [The Register] When mainstream news looks at weblogs. I don’t give a shit of what a professional journalist thinks about ‘blogging’. But I will go to the best and fastest news outlet for the things I have some interest and this is where ‘blogs’ shine. On a side note The Register shouldn’t worry, they have some very excellent journalist that somehow seem to be ahead of the pack. On the other hand, paper magazines seem to be really to far behind and their only advantage before 802.11b and 3G spreads to every place known to mankind is that I can read them on my weekly commute in the train.

If you are an Apple fan, you will enjoy this site: Apple-History.Com Be sure to dig deeper than the home page. Select a model, or browse the links at the top of the page. Be sure to check out the “History” link. It’s well organized, but brief. The site has a fun navigation feature: when you are on the product pages, you can sort the Macintosh listings menu by the date the machines were introduced, by name, or by product family. I prefer the product specification listings that you find at EveryMac because they are displayed in a tabular format, but this site offers more in terms of actual Apple Computer history.

Near-perfect CSS design. The End of Free. From a Blogger template by Eric Costello at glish.com. Three-panel layout. User-selectable font. Resizable text. Randomly morphing background color scheme.
