Windows 7 Launch on a Macbook Pro on Today Show
Carved out a few minutes this morning so I could watch Steve Ballmer’s live launch of Windows 7 on the Today show. I burst out laughing when I saw him standing in front of a huge HDTV with an image of a laptop on it — and one emblazoned with the Windows 7 logo — BUT THAT LAPTOP WAS A PREVIOUS GENERATION MACBOOK PRO!
While I’ll be picking up a copy of Windows 7 to run in Parallels on my MacPro tower (though just for very occasional use), this is still a very funny tweak of Ballmer by NBC Today show staffers who obviously knew exactly what they were doing.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
