I am excited to try out the new Ubuntu 9.04
I think it would be nice if more people got away from windows and used Unix and Linux based systems. Oh to be in a perfect world.
It is time to bring IE 6 to rest. The guys over at .net magazine have put together a campaign to bring awareness to everyone and we all hope that you will join up in the fight. If you are not sure if you are using the latest browser please just download the latest version of any one of the following browesers. Installing a new browser may be out of your comfort zone but it is something that just needs to be done because more and more websites aren’t looking the way they should because you are using an old browser (if you are using and old browser). And for those of you who are reading this who don’t know what a browser is… it is the program/ application you are viewing this webpage with.
This Warning applies to you if you are using an old browser!!
Time to upgrade your browser
If you’re reading this, you’re surfing using Internet Explorer 6, an eight-year-old browser that cannot cope with the demands of the modern internet. For the best web experience, we strongly recommend upgrading to Firefox, Opera, Safari, Google Chrome, or a more recent version of Internet Explorer.

I know that there are free and paid Mac applications that will change system icons but sometimes I am just too cheap to pay for an application that does what I can do in a few seconds or the application doesn’t do exactly what I want it to. So, in light of all of this I have created my own how to video and posted it to the web adding to the plethora of icon changing how to videos.
I have been upset with Google for taking soo long to put out their Apple version of their Chrome browser. After reading an article on ZDNet about the Pawn2Own hacker event maybe I can give Google some slack. :-) I still want my Chrome ASAP if it is as good as the windows version though. Google seems to be heading in the right direction with their sandbox model for their browser. I am sad that Apple has done so little to create road blocks for hackers but I guess that is expected when you have such a low market share. Now go and read the article and make your own decision on what browser you are going to use. Questions for Pwn2Own hacker Charlie Miller
