Well, if you could have FordII@gmail.com and Ford.II@gmail.com be two different users, a lot of people could be fooled into thinking that one is the same as the other.

ahhh.
You could use the same argument for ford_ii which is more common and IS actually a problem.

There is some google bashing going on around here(WNC). Ever since they put a node in Lenoir, there's been some heat. Latest scream was they made their neighbors move out, they shut down a furniture company on the idea it made their waves jiggle. The city leaders have always been jerks for the furniture biz. They turned Toyota down on a plant offer 15 years ago.

Follow the money. I suspect nearly all Google bashing originates from someone being paid by Microsoft or Apple.

The era of the desktop pc's dominance is finally drawing to a close. Applications live on the network now, and Google is uniquely positioned to catch that wave and ride it high. That has the PC establishmentarians running scared, and they will stop at nothing to ty to stop it, or at least slow it down.

This message is brought to you via me typing on an Android phone to a server at my data center running Linux. Who needs a desktop?

I like the counter from MS "Our code is shittier than you think, your workaround won't work."

Wow. I'm testing web markup with various browsers today. IE 8 sucks even more than IE 7, which in turn sucks more than IE 8. M C Escher would have been proud.

Speaking of full disclosure, today I managed to get "sar" to buffer overflow, rather trivially. Probably not exploitable.

Stumbled across a video of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapsing in 1940.

We've all seen these images before, but it's worth watching over and over again as a reminder that you should not trust anything that was engineered in Washington state.

Here's a nice article about the decline of the desktop and one of its inevitable results: the decline of Microsoft.

I've been saying this for a while now, and I'm looking forward to it.

http://www.businessinsider.com/microsofts-business-could-collapse-2010-6

Despite all of its attempts at other markets, Microsoft's revenue is still all about Windows and Office, two products whose relevance is declining, and which have utterly failed to penetrate any other markets (particularly mobile, which is where all the interest is right now).

heh, this is funny:
Consider the absurdity in today's world of syncing a mobile device with a single desktop PC.

That's why I like my palm.
I can make phone calls on it, and I can sync it with my home PC which since I work from home sometimes I spend enough time at to be useful.
Soon will come a time (basically when palm OS is no longer a viable option because the software wasn't kept up) that you won't be able to do anything useful unless you have a data pan.
plan.

Right now I can download all sorts of free games onto my palm via my PC for free without a data plan. For free.
But the powers that be are going to make sure that's not possible as soon as they can.
And this (say it with me brothers) is Progress.

There's a hole in that line of thinking, though.

The idea of syncing a phone with an individual desktop is going away because it *is* quaint and outmoded.  But you still don't need a data plan.

Any smartphone worth its salt is capable of performing all of its online activities using WiFi.  I could cancel my data plan tomorrow and still use my G1 with the Internet connection in my house to sync contacts and calendars, read/write email, surf the web, install applications on the phone, and do pretty much everything the phone is capable of doing, except talk on the phone.  And even that isn't totally true; if I installed Skype or SIPdroid I could talk while connected to WiFi without any mobile network at all.

This isn't likely to change, either.  Some current-generation devices (such as the iPad) are even available in WiFi-only models.
