Bluetooth operates in the 2.4 ghz spectrum (along with cordless telephones, 802.11b and 802.11g networking gear, and baby monitors) and does not use the cellular/pcs/gsm networks, therefore, charging customers their calling plan minutes is pure and utter bullshit. I hope C|Net is has its facts mixed up.
We've come a long way, dorfie.

Back in the day, Hex editing Myth game files was all the rage (for Myth nerds anyway). Do you want a dorf (dorf == Dwarf) who throws arrows instead of molotov cocktails? No problem, hex edit that bad boy and do whatever you want. These days, the l33t thing is to hack Halo.
Some weekend reading.

Cool URIs don't change
What makes a cool URI?Dispute exposes bitter power struggle behind Web logs
A cool URI is one which does not change.
What sorts of URI change?
URIs don't change: people change them.
Winer's opponents are seeking a new format that would clarify RSS ambiguities, consolidate its multiple versions, expand its capabilities, and fall under the auspices of a traditional standards organization. Calls to revise RSS itself fell on deaf ears when Winer decided to freeze its technological core, preventing substantial changes to the heart of the format.Next Jordan Could Be a Gamer
The video-game industry has outpaced Hollywood (PDF) in terms of revenues over the last few years, yet gaming has remained part of the pop culture gutter. However, big money and media exposure is helping change that. Top tournaments now offer as much as $200,000 in purses and draw thousands of international players.Karma Vertigo: or Considering The Excessive Responsibilities Placed On Us By The Dawn Of The Information Infrastructure
I've been observing the progress of debate on the "information highway" and somehow a great many people who know better are pretending that it is just another grand venture like the interstates or the space program, when it is actually something of much greater consequence for two simple reasons: it will change everything and it is irreversible.[I've forgotten where I originally saw each of these articles linked from.]
I actually patched my Win2k machine before this worm could knock on its door ("hey! come on in!"). The other two Winblows machines were not so lucky.
My Mac and our Linux box had 0% downtime yesterday.
OmniWeb is relevant.

For a very long time, I have felt that OmniWeb is an irrelevant annoyance on the web browser landscape. I mean, who are they kidding? another browser to support, that no one uses? I'm having a hard enough time writing compliant code that renders consistently in Mozilla and Internet Explorer. Safari came along and completely marginalized a mostly marginalized browser.
The waiting is the hardest part.

var input = document.createElement("INPUT"); input.setAttribute("type","text"); input.setAttribute("name","myinput"); input.setAttribute("id","myinput");That makes a new input element, and then sets all of the attributes and their values. The result should be something like this...
One particularly delicious find mentions that the Microsoft Developer site provides code that doesn't execute. When I run the code at that link, I get an error at the attempt to set the type attribute. The MSDN even talks about the method as if it were fully supported, but I'm not so sure about that. The only working example I could find seems to be completely IE/Windows specific and mentions that "his method requires an object participating in persistence".
My conclusion is that the setAttribute method is not fully supported in Internet Explorer. So, we resorted to workarounds, and found one. If you do a createElement("SPAN") and then pump it full of innerHTML and then append that to something, you will get your desired effect. But, that's at the price of using non-DOM code.
If anyone else can shed any more light on this, please do. My knowledge on the subject is anecdotal and derived from experimentation. Other data includes weird comments like the following from O'Reilly...
"The book says that the setAttribute() method in IE4 through 5.5 uses propertynames instead of attributenames. I experienced that the same behaviour holds for IE6.0 for PC."Again, please let me know if you know anything that hasn't been mentioned here already.
