Big hands okay for iPhone:

I have it on good authority that Steve Jobs himself has big butcher’s hands. That’s the reason Apple has never done a subnotebook. An Apple engineer I spoke to recently told me that Jobs’ clumsy paws couldn’t work a sexy little Sony Vaio subnotebook he brought back from Japan. Jobs’ hands were too big for the three-quarter-sized keyboard.

“How do people use this?” he asked, before shutting the lid on the subnotebook — and Apple’s plans to make a similar device.

Rumor: Apple to charge[Tiger users] for Boot Camp final version. Not very surprising — unlike the 802.11n update, there’s a good reason to charge Tiger users here, as that basically amounts to giving a $30 discount to Intel Mac owners on Leopard.

Or it would if they didn’t all have already installed and paid for Parallels.

 

@apple@

Speaking of which: Parallels to enable virtual OS X on PCs? So much for those rumors of Apple buying Parallels or integrating their software — unless that’s just a ploy to drive the auction up.

Trouble squirting?

Universal and Sony won’t allow what amounts to 40-50% of songs available for the Zune to be [shared].

Let’s say this out loud. They won’t let you send a song to someone to be played all of three times before they’re prompted to buy it.

Kottke:

All links on Wikipedia now automatically use the “nofollow” attribute. […] Now it gets all the Google juice and doesn’t pass any of it along to the sources from which it gets information. Links are currency on the web and Wikipedia just stopped paying it forward, so to speak.
