Bill Gates and Conan O'Brien were quite an act at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Nothing the Microsoft chairman did seemed to work. This video is funny, but just imagine what it would have been like to see the follow up back at HQ? http://news.com.com/1606-2-5517693.html?tag=nefd.ac

Sun Microsystems has made a big deal out of blogging. Microsoft claims it supports it. Apple warns employees to be careful. This site lists companies that have fired employees for blogging. It is both interesting and disturbing. http://rights.journalspace.com/?b=1104566400&e=1105171200

This is an idea whose time has come, if ever that expression meant anything. Who said all the truly great ideas were simple? This is a memory card that folds into a USB connector. Plug it into your camera, take some pics, then pop it straight into your notebook. www.dpreview.com/news/0501/05010606sandisksdflip.asp
