, we thought it was important to let you know that if your business is running any edition of Windows 2000 (Server or Professional) or Windows XP SP 2, you will soon need to make a change. July 13, 2010 will mark the end date of public support for all editions of Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP. As per Microsoft "This transition date marks the natural progression in the support of these products, and is in accordance with the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy for Business and Developer products."
Upon public support for these products ending on July 13, 2010, "Microsoft will no longer provide any assisted support or security updates." If your business is running Windows 2000 you will need to upgrade to an alternative, supported product, such as Windows 7 and/or Windows Server 2008 R2. If you are running Windows XP SP2, you will need to upgrade to Windows XP SP3 or another supported product, such as Windows 7, in order to obtain support.

Don't you want to look cool?
I know sure as heck I do. I want to be walking down the hall doing IT things on my fresh new Tablet PC, all the while snickering to myself that I'm the coolest nerd I know. And who cares that its bright 10'' screen causes me to walk into the CFO of my client, flipping the cake she was holding onto her face?
Actually, that wouldn't be so cool.
Cake covered faces aside, Tablet Computing is COMING! As most gadget dweebs like myself know, the CrunchPad is nearing completion. It's a thin tablet that boots right into a web browser. That's it. It's pretty much what most people use netbooks for, just without that miniscule keyboard and a bigger screen(12). And it will most likely sell for around $300. But what If I wanted to checkout our company Facebook page while out and about?
Well, I'm glad you asked, sir! Rumors are swirling that you're favorite company and mine, Apple, is nearing completion of their own tablet! No one really knows what kind of OS it will be running, whether it be a full blown OS X or a lite version, falling somewhere above the iPhone OS. But sources are saying that it will be 3G enabled, and most likely connected with a Verizon, AT&T like company.
I'm pretty content with browsing the web on my iPhone 3GS, and barely even use my laptop when I'm home cooking up delicious Lean Pockets. BUT, if the right product comes along, and it's promoted by a slick looking, black turtleneck wearing salesman, you can pretty much count me in. Well, until the iPhone 4G comes out.
