Gift ideas

I'm a procrastinator. So I usually end up doing stuff at the very very last minute, or a bit later. So I was really pleased to come across these last minute gift ideas, where some can even be bought online now and given in about 2 minutes. Great when you're in a squeeze and need to buy a gift fast!

Hope you find that useful. :)

Windows 7 sells because Windows Vista sucks

According to this article, Steve Ballmer says that Windows 7 sells twice as fast as any other Microsoft OS in the same period. And he puts it like it's a good thing.

Here's an alternative analysis. Millions of computers have been sold with Windows Vista preinstalled during the last couple of years. Some users and businesses have "upgraded" to Vista, because upgrading usually sounds like the right thing to do. Now they're fed up with running a disabling operating system on their computers. With the down economy, people buy Windows 7 to be able to use their computers productively. It's good for Microsoft to have the squeeze on their customers.
