The Dork Report for August 23, 2006

Whoda thunk, cows have accents [no longer online: cnn.com/2006/TECH/science/08/23/cows.accent.reut] too. Do Canadian cows say “moooeh”, and do Bristol cows saw “mo'”? (guest submission from “Cows come you moo like you’re from the norf?” Andrea)

Up From the Catacombs: The Best of Jane’s Addiction [no longer online: rhino.com/rzine/pressrelease.lasso?PRID=421], unfortunately including tracks from the 2003 Bob Ezrin-produced travesty Strays.

Every Mac Dork is blogging about the alleged MacBook serious security flaw [no longer online: blog.washingtonpost.com/securityfix/2006/08/hijacking_a_macbook_in_60_seco.html], so I might as well chip in. Daring Fireball gives an impassioned, detailed overview of the controversy. Two observations:

  • The passion with which self-appointed Apple evangelists defend Apple is amazing.

Another Apple controversy is brewing: Vivek Sambhara and others leaked a copy of Mac OS X Leopard onto the internet, and Apple’s legal department came down on them like a ton of bricks.

The Hoff Image Database [no longer online: hoffgallery.com] greatest hits: Dr. Hoff [no longer online: hoffgallery.com/displayimage.php?album=8&pos=13], MC Hoffer, and Being John Malkohoff.
