Hoping to Make iPhone Toys as a Full-Time Job

The New York Times has an article up about the “iPhone Gold Rush”. It features iShoot developer Ethan Nicholas, and is pretty well written, go check it out. I’m not quite sure why it is in the fashion section, but at least it has some good sources. Like Ars Technica’s Erica Sadun.

A Politico’s Look Inside Obama’s bank CEOs meeting

Politico has posted a look inside Obama’s meeting with the CEOs of various banks. My opinion is that they sound like they’re still a bunch of shortsighted libertarian lunatics with no interest in even pretending to appeal to the greater good. But, hey, we all have opinions, and I think you should read this article and have one.

Mr. Belarcadere

There is a piece of software called Belarc Advisor that can spec out your PC super-quick and seems incredibly helpful. Unlike Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder, which is a good tool to have as well, Belarc Advisor not only gets the keys for various pieces of Windows Software, but also checks out the status of your (Windows-only) machine’s security hotfixens and displays your system specfications.

It does this all in a web browser and then gives you links to where each piece of software it finds is installed.

About the only downsides I can find are that this isn’t free software and it doesn’t display licenses for game software.

I suppose neither is surprising coming from a business-oriented services company, but oh well.
