iPod insight

I found on Slashdot this article "Inside iPod". It describe the inside of the iPod in a non-official way as must Apple suppliers for the iPod are, tied to a NDA, unable to provide any information.

iPod Linux also has some information.

Nail Guns are dangerous

Nail Guns are dangerous. And Standblog (fr), where I found that link, says it is more dangerous that install Windows XP on an open Internet connection.

I think this guy should have played lottery at the same time. He would have won enough to re-imburse the hospital.

  2. Start in Norway, City: Haugesund
  3. End in Norway, City: Trondheim

No, Norway in not a that big country.

Apple DRM analysis

The Register has a good article that analyze Apple DRM from a market and customer point of vue (it is NOT a technical article).

So I'm still planning to stick to audio CDs, and still be careful about the "Copy Controlled" logo. That way I can listen to music I bought wherever I want.
