- Microsoft adjusts "Laptop Hunter" ad after complaints from Apple Legal - How can you have "completely unscripted commercials" where you go back and have to change the script? But perhaps more interesting is the reference to "research data which pegs Apple as owning 90% of the computer market for machines that cost more than $1000." Does that surprise anyone else other than me
- Intuit launches open source community - Open source comes to personal finance software. Interesting.
- Google Voice app GV Mobile ported to jailbroken iPhones, web app version in the works - Giving it a try right now.
- iPhone Jailbreaking Could Crash Cellphone Towers, Apple Claims - You've got to be kidding me. "This also explains why Apple rejected the official Google Voice App for the iPhone this week. We thought it was because Google Voice posed a threat to AT&T’s exclusivity deal with Apple. Now we know it threatened national security."
