Please note that the delightful pair of vociferous Mac-heads, Dan Benjamin and John Gruber make an ever so brief mention of Newton (and yours truly) in the recently unveiled Hivelogic Podcast. The first two episodes of the podcast are a casual discussion of their ideas regarding what new products might appear during the imminent Macworld … Read the rest of this item

I was a guest at my daughter’s Brownie meeting tonight. The entire group was working on some of the criteria to qualify for their technology badge.
