OK, you two, stop fighting. These little spats of yours are getting old. A [URL="http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20100602/tc_nf/73685"]rumor[/URL], heard yesterday, that [URL="http://www.google.com"]Google[/URL] is not going to use [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Windows[/URL] internally in their company might be just that: rumor. And, a bad one at that. It's interesting to note that, while such a rumor stirs up thoughts of Google's own Chrome OS on a thousand desktops/laptops/netbooks; I don't know that it's entirely possible to toss out all the Windows operating systems from their midst. Or desirable. [B]FOSS Chorus:[/B] How can he say such a thing? He's the Linux Guy, after all. I'm realistic. Not all …

The natural assumption is that they are negotiating iPhone distribution, competition if you will for the current exclusive carrier, AT&T, but …

[I]A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes. ~Mark Twain. [/I] This week we learned what can happen when Citizen Journalism runs amok when an untrue rumor began circulating that Apple CEO had suffered a severe heart attack. As soon as the original report hit the CNN Citizen Journalism site, [URL="http://www.ireport.com/index.jspa"]iReport[/URL], the rumor spread like wild fire around the internet. Within the hour, however, [URL="http://www.mahalo.com/Johntw"]some professional journalists [/URL]made some phone calls and learned it wasn't true--Jobs was fine. The SEC is now investigating the citizen journalist who wrote the piece--who goes …
