Google vs. MicrosoftYahoo
Nothing sums up my opinion about the Microsoft bid to buy Yahoo better than this cartoon from MSNBC. The cartoon was created by Daryl Cagle for msnbc.com and used for the story entitled Why Google will remain the king of search. Guess nobody at Microsoft read the Peanut Butter manifesto.

Proof that TestNG is THE best unit testing framework :)
BEA’s dev2dev is running a new poll that is asking the question, Which unit testing framework would you prefer to use? I guess I was the first one to hit the poll as the results speak for themselves 🙂
dev2dev, bea, unit-testing, tdd, testng, junit

If you are fan or even a casual viewer of The Simpsons, you have to see this video. Apparently, the British Satellite provider Sky created this awesome parity that reenacts the Simpsons intro with real life actors. 🙂

I am such a loser :)
Discovered EgoSurf via. Steve Ruble’s blog and so I gave it a shot and scored 9130 points. I need a life 🙂 The idea is simple – You enter your name and your blogs web address and EgoSurf searchs google (MSN, Yahoo, Technorai, Del.icio.us also) and finds links to your blog which is used to calculate your ego ranking. Pretty interesting and a great way to kill a few hours at work 😉 EgoSurf is the creation of Jason Hyland.
F*** You iTunes!
iTunes, my default music player for everything is starting to piss me off. The new feature where it stops downloading podcasts because you haven’t listened to a particular podcast in the last few days is really annoying. Have you experienced this?

Clicking on the ‘!‘ brings up this wonderful dialog box:
I know someone thought this would be a useful feature but it is really pissing me off. Why not offer an option in the preferences for this? If you can’t manage your own subscriptions, let iTunes do it but if you have a brain and a big hard-drive, I’ll download anything and everything you tell me. Wow. That was harsh – I really must be missing Hani’s bile now that he’s good team player and part of the JCP 😉
