The OS Formally Known as Longhorn
Now that Vista (man, I’m having a hard time saying the new name after all these years of Longhorn) is in beta, it’s time to start seriously digging into it.

I Think I Have a New Idol
I was really fortunate this year in that I was able to watch most of the stages of the Tour de France…I’ve always been a huge fan of cycling, and especially Lance Armstrong.

I checked this phone out when it was released a while back and was very impressed with the form factor, though I was less than impressed with the 500 dollar price tag. At the current price...
