Just poking around the internet, I see that Google is providing an "early release" of the Chrome browser for Mac OS X. They have several warnings about privacy concerns, but if you'd like to see what's coming, it might be worth a look. I just took it for a spin, and while it seems pretty basic, it didn't crash, and it seems pretty quick.
I've posted a free calendar based on Java and JSP technology online here. As you'll see, it's a very simple calendar, displaying the current month initially, then letting you scroll through the months with previous and next links.
Interesting discovery of the day: Even on an iPhone -- which was supposed to transform the "browsing the internet on a phone" experience -- almost all of the websites I have bookmarked and visit on a daily basis are WAP/WML websites, including WAP/WML versions of the NY Times, SJ Mercury News, Facebook, Google News, and ESPN.
In a blog entry, Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz writes about Project Vector, which he says will probably be renamed the Java Store. I know that a lot of companies are coming out with their own "stores" now, but for me, this is probably the most interesting Java announcement in years.
I'm not sure exactly what's going on, but I'm having a horrible time trying to use Yahoo's web-based email with Firefox this last 36 hours or so. There is some kind of really bad memory leak in the system that makes Firefox's memory use jump up to over 300MB as soon as I look at just two or three files.
I've been working on revamping my website about Alaska, OneMansAlaska.com, and in the process I was debating whether or not I wanted this site to have what I considered to be the "Web 2.0 Look & Feel". Just at that time I started wondering, "What is the Web 2.0 Look and Feel?", and I was wondering how I would define it.
Here's an interesting link about "Who has the most web servers?" It only briefly touches on guesses for the number of servers Google and Microsoft have, but they provide interesting numbers for companies like 1&1, Rackspace, and a few other big names, based on this "Netcraft hosting provider server count".
My only rant against Apple these days is that when I use my iMac I've had to resort to using a Microsoft keyboard. That's because at the ripe age of 45 I have some arthritis in my fingers, and the keys on Apple's keyboards are too hard to press. You might be surprised, but it really hurts to press those hard keys thousands of times a day.
As expected (and as I wrote about here, here, and even here), Apple has responded to the recent Microsoft "PC's Are Cheaper" ads with a new series of ads that focus on the user experience after the initial purchase.
