But of course. And nothing is going to hit the ultrathin notebook sweetspot, or the netbook sweetspot, until Apple comes out with there iPhone-based tablet that'll knock everybody's socks off. Which will happen, soon enough.
PC World says the Apple Tablet is real. Now, we'll finally get an actual netbook market. Sorta like we got an MP3 market when Apple released the iPod, and finally got a touch-screen Internet phone market when Apple released the iPhone.
That's the stone-cold truth. Later, my friends.

And here's the "trailer" for Tron: Legacy. Sigh. Can't wait for that.

Jim Dale really does a great job of reading the books. Get 'em all from Amazon here.
In other news, you gotta read Athra. It's an on-line graphic novel by a friend of mine, and it's totally awesome. Go now!

How about exam lamps, like this Grafco Halogen Exam Lamp? Or how about Stethoscopes? Like this MDF Premier Stethoscope. The MDF® ER Premier™ 22K Gold-Plated Stethoscope is a robust and versatile stethoscope with superior acoustic quality that enables ER physicians to deliver fast and efficient emergency care to both pediatric and adult patients using just one stethoscope. Also with an included Bell Conversion this stethoscope can be transformed into Classic Cardiology™ Stethoscope. Precisely handcrafted from premium stainless steel for the highest performance and unmatched durability in any emergency medical setting. Pretty cool, huh?
Not exactly software and technology, but I've got to do whatever I can to promote the job I have, which is hanging on by a thread. So I'll try just about anything. Come on by! Feed my children! Take care of your healthcare needs! And . . . more later.

Ah, history. CompuServe was the first major commercial online service in the United States. It charged hourly rates, and those rates were expensive. You might spend $79 dollars a month, now, to get gigabits of always-on internet access, at the top. Back in the day, you could burn through $79 in a single evening, chatting on the CB at 300 Baud thanks to your handy-dandy accoustic modem.
BTW, that Smartmodem 1200 was $699, back in the day when it was first introduced. That'd be about what? $1500 now? I bought mine a little later, and it was only $399. Still--wow. Expensive.
UPDATE: I decided to check this using The Inflation Calculator. What cost $699 in 1981 would cost someone $1635.20 in 2008 dollars. So, there ya go.
CompuServe hung-on. My very first internet access was through Compuserve, using their PPP service to establish my Internet connection. My, how things have changed. And now, Compuserve is on the way out. Goodbye, CIS! We shall miss you.
Anyone else remember Apple's eWorld? I gotta do a post on that, sometime.

No, not really. The Mophie Juice Pack provides longer battery life for your iPhone. Which is handy, if you can't be bothered to remember to plug the thing in on a regular basis.
And somebody says you can win a Mophie Juice Pack or something. Cool.
In other Macintosh related news, here are 10 OS X Pranks that'll get you fired. Or at least physically assaulted.
In other news, this cartoon is just stupid.

As an informative tidbit, if you are looking for some Kendall Curity Disposable Nursing Pads then I have something for you. And it's right up there.
In other news, the new Apple iPhones are mega-cool, but I'm still using my original Edge Network, 4mb iPhone, and still pretty happy with it. Is the iPhone better than the RIM Blackberry? The short answer is, except for some business users and even then it's questionable, yes. Definitely, yes. Better than any phone ever made by anybody. Sorry, but it's true.
In still other news, Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day in the mega-groovy Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog is mega awesome.

In more software-related news, the iPhone's MultiTouch--called something else--comes to Microsoft Windows PCs with Windows 7. Pretty cool to look at, you gotta admit. Wonder if it works that well in practice. I'm guessing no.
Having menus and windows all tilt strangely seems to me typically Microsoft. Because you can make it possible to create an unnavigable mess with a touch interface, then you should. So they will.

And Terry O'Quinn as John Locke is just as cool. It's a great show. And Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn help make it the coolest show on television. Although I miss Mr. Eko. He was the one other completely super-cool, super-tough characters. They shouldn't've killed 'em off.

J. Peterman Catalog is still in business? It is. Doesn't have anything to do with anything, I just heard them talking about it on TWIT and wondered if old J. Peterman was still around. Turns out, they are.
Wonder if I should try the J. Peterman approach. "The grizzled technologist donned his LowePro Factor Backpack, thoughtfully rubbing the wisened leather of his Deluxe Belkin iPod case for his 4th Generation iPod. Could he bring Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 to the aboriginal tribes at the foot of the mountain?"
Nah. I dunno. Doesn't work.

In other news, if you're looking for a Fellowes Lighthouse Optical Mouse Pads, we got 'em for only $1.39. Cool.
Kaspersky 2009 Internet Security 3-User OEM. We got it for only $25.49. Beat that! With a stick. You can't do it, can you? So, give in and purchase now!
More soon. Later, my good friends.

In other news, you can get the Microsoft Office 2007 Master Kit (Media Only) from Software Supply Group for only $14.99 as of this posting. Good deal, good deal. No license, unfortunately, just the media, but if you need replacement media, this is a great way to get it.
Windows Vista Business 32-bit full Version OEM for only $124.95 (again, as of this posting).
What else? I'm thinking, I'm thinking. Well, we've also got McAfee 2009 VirusScan Plus Full Version OEM . . . for only $8.95.
Well, that's it for now. More soon enough.

It just sounds mega-cool.
We used to have Tron 2.0, Killer App (for X-Box) in our list of software game titles. Alas, no longer. But we have plenty of other cool games. We also carry a variety of Electronic Toys, Business Software, Software for the Home, and more. So, stop on by sometime.
Also, I ought to mention that SnaggStuff.com now has a SnaggStuff Community, where you can discuss the groovy new deals from SnaggStuff.com on any given day. Here's the conversation for today (3-4-09), but tomorrow it will be different. Whatever, come on by and check it out!

Cerebus oeuvre. But I grew up reading them, and Heroes is the prefect comic book television series. With entirely non-standard, non-DC, non-Marvel characters, it captures the world of comic book super heroes.
One of the uber-geek things I like best? The casting. George Takei as Hiro Nakamura's father, Kaito Nakamura. Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura on Star Trek TOS) as Nana.
Robert Forster as Arthur Petrelli. Who geeks remember Captain Dan Holland in The Black Hole. And Daniel Linderman, played by Malcolm McDowell. How awesome is that?
What does this have to do with Software Supply Group? Not much. We have some games that have the word "Heroes" in the title, like Heroes of Might and Magic IV. And several others with the name "Heroes" in it.
Sage ACT! 2007, Full Version, for only $15.99. That's right, only $15.99! Better get it while supplies last.

Just a quick note to let you know, we've got Microsoft Office XP 2002 Pro, as an OEM (that means it doesn't come with the box and all that stuff). So you know. And, right now, we've got it for only $94.97. Ultra-awesome!
And, for today (February 19th, 2009), SnaggStuff.com has another groovy Mystery Box. This one is pricey--$50 bucks for a Box of Mystery--but we guarantee that it will be Chocked Full of Amazine Awesomeness. BTW, if you follow the link, and it's not the amazing awesome mystery box, you're too late. These deals only last for a day.

For the entire game, which I'm sure you know if you've played it, Midna looks like the little sprite on the left, short and squat but with a definite elfin cuteness. Then, after you've beaten Ganondorf, Midna turns into the tall Twilight Princess you see on the right. But, that moment is very short. Too bad.
Another picture I came across must be from a comic convention, and I love it:
A real, live girl in the Midna costume is just adorable. If I wasn't already married, I'd propose to this woman. Although, she might get tired of constantly dressing in skin-tight vinyl, white face paint and a giant paper mache headpiece, which would be a condition of the marriage.So, are you remembering to check out the great, one day only deals and discount at SnaggStuff.com? If not, you should be. They've got good stuff.
In other news, we've got some weird non-software stuff at SoftwareSupplyGroup.com. Such as a the overpriced Deal or No Deal Desktop Calendar. Or this lovely 7 Piece Stainless Steel Knife Set with Cutting Board.
Or this Coby Electronics 2GB Video and MP3 Player with FM Radio and Color Display. Only $41.16 right now. Not too bad.
Well, gotta go. More later!

Which is all a prelude to saying, we sell some Wii games now. Like Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed. And Guitar Hero Aerosmith for the Wii. And Opoona for the Nintendo Wii. That's a weird looking game.

Point being, I picked up playing Twilight Princess the other night, and I'm almost through. I now need to face Ganondorf, or Ganon, or whoever he is, and that should be it. Point being (again with that phrase), I like good games and Twilight Princess is an excellent video game. Perhaps one of the best of the Zelda series, and they have all been exemplary games for their times.
Yet, games are not confined to platforms like Nintendo or Playstation (although we do have a decent collection of platform video games for X-Box, Nintendo, Sony Playstation and others). They're also available, in great fecundity, for your computer. And Software Supply Group has added a bunch of great game titles just recently.
For example: Atari Anniversary Edition. I love the classics. This incredible compilation features 12 of the most popular games from the first video arcades, and an assortment of new features to go along with them. Enjoy the classic style gaming thrills of Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe. Blast away in Centipede, Millipede and Gravitar. Use your reflexes and aiming skills in Battlezone, Crystal Castles, Super Breakout, Missile Command, Tempest and Warlords. It even includes Pong, the first commercially-released video game ever. How cool is that?
Secret Agent Barbie. And Seven Kingdoms II. Even The DaVinci Code, from Take 2 Interactive. And The Grand Theft Auto Classic Collection.
We've also added a number of Entertainment Software Titles, a wide selection of Educational Titles, Graphics Software and more.
Well, that's it for now. More later!

And I even remember that Activision Pitfall commercial with Jack Black. Oh, yes. I do.
Yes, I'm a very nostalgic guy. That's why I love the fact we still sell Microsoft Windows NT, and for only $19.95. And we've got Microsoft Windows 95 for $17.49 and the Windows 95 Upgrade back for only $2.92! At that price, you could buy a dozen and still have change left over for coffee!
We still carry the Microsoft Office 2000 products. And Microsoft Office XP 2002. And more. It's cool. Some come on buy, and pick up your little bit of Microsoft History from Software Supply Group today.

What I am sure about is that you having to be upgrading Windows Vista SP1 to install the Beta. If you aren't, no dice. So, go buy an inexpensive copy of Windows Vista real quick, and you'll be set.
When the Windows 7 Download is available, you should be able to get it here.
Windows 7 Review from Computer World here.

Will it be better than Windows Vista? Sure. Will it solve all the security problems and viruses and bot-nets in the world? No. But, the fact is, you could do something about now, whether you're using Windows Vista, Windows XP, or something even older (though, unless it's Windows 2000, you really shouldn't be).
