Adobe Photoshop Prevents Making Counterfeit Money

I have never tried this before so I cannot vouch for the truthfulness behind it, but apparently Adobe Photoshop will recognize currency and prevent the user from being able to manipulate it. This makes perfect sense because of the power of Photoshop and the number of professional editors that use Photoshop. It will also recognize credit cards and Euro notes.

Goodbye Windows Blackcomb, Hello Vienna!

Yes, that is right, the Windows that is in the far far future could be named Vienna now. The previous name was Blackcomb until Robert Scoble, a 'reporter' for Microsoft, stated that the name is being changed to Vienna. If this is true then I think Microsoft has lost their mind. Names like Whistler, Longhorn, and Blackcomb were all cool, but Vienna? Who are we, Oscar Meyer?

AskMeNow Service A Good 411 Replacement

The AskMeNow service that has been released could be a good alternative to using 411. I know on my cell phone using 411 costs $1.25, and with Google Mobile I haven't had to use 411.
