Things you’d never see
- Don Felipe de Borbón, the heir to the Spanish throne, is set to marry Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, a well-known television reporter. It’s causing quite a bit of hubub. I thought royals always tried to keep their family trees purged of non-nobility. Times are changing, I guess. It’s amazing what we Americans miss, being kingless and queenless and all. I guess that’s why our media cares so much about certain famous singers out there (not to mention names or anything.) ☺
- Microsoft includes the swastika in one of its fonts. It’s also a big copycat, as seen in the new screenshots of IE – something you’d of course never thought you’d see.
- As a follow-up on “They’re no angels,” Microsoft really isn’t playing fair. They’ve patented both the technology of getting your weather forecast or stock quotes over the Internet, and the technology of opening browser windows that look and act like real programs. Problem is, there’s very likely a lot of prior art on these two counts.
