MSN Launches AOL Defection Tool -the funny thing here is that it takes something like this to get you out of all the proprietary AOL stuff when you’re an AOLer. Of course you’re trading it for the proprietary MSN stuff, so which is worse? Give me ISP’s without any proprietary software! You can switch those at will without all of these problems! (via Evan)

“Copy-proof” CDs cracked with 99-cent marker pen -if true, this is hysterical! Of course it goes right along with the news over the last few weeks about smart cards being hacked, and biometric devices being fooled using gummy bears, and facial recognition falling flat in Orlando because of the lighting in the airport. There is no technology out there that is going to be foolproof. So how about trying some original ideas instead of treating everyone like a criminal?

Doc was sort of all over the map yesterday. Lots of good stuff, but since I’m only working half a day today, and have some things to get done, I don’t have time to delve into all of it. This will serve as my reminder to look more closely at it tomorrow. 🙂

I’m off to Cincinnati this afternoon for the Midnight Oil show at Bogart’s tonight. You all be good while I’m gone!
