6 Reasons For Asking Why at LifeDev on, well, the value of asking why.

Office Natural Language Team Blog: Astronomical union consults MS spellchecker on pluton?. Interesting (though not intirely recommendable) use of the office spellchecker. I would suggest googling instead.

Spreeder is a "free online speed reader". I could go on for a bit about how easily it could be vastly improved, but I'll save that for a rainy day.

Guy Kawasaki: Ten Things to Learn This School Year. If you only learn one, go for number 4: How to figure out anything on your own.

CNN Technology reports that cell phones are taking over as timepieces. It's amazing that on my Sony Ericsson K750i, there's no clock visible when tapping away on a text message. So if you're trying to make an appointment with someone but need to know the current time first, you'll have to back out of the menu, saving the half-written message as a draft, check the time, go back and open the draft and... it's stupid. Even more amazingly, there's no clock when you're setting an alarm either. Apparently, this has changed in the K800, but where the hell is the software update to bring the K750i up to par? (And when will I be able to upgrade the phone's firmware from my linux box? It's time for an open-source phone, dammit.)
