Bill Gates is an ass, his wife pines for an…. iphone.

When I read this article, I didn’t know whether to laugh or scream asshole.  I think I yelled “What an asshole!  OMG!”  Looks like old Bill is intimidated by Mr. Jobs, and refuses to let his wife or two kids to use any Apple product.  Too bad Microsoft doesn’t have products that are quite as good as Apple’s.  Okay, maybe I’ll give you the Zune, but there aren’t any Windows Mobile phones that come close to the slickness of the iphone.  I love my Treo 800w, but it doesn’t sell quite as well as the iphone.  Someone sneak Melinda an iphone!

What’s in A Name?

DC’s Thanksgiving is over. And I hope we all had something to be thankful for. Now that our bellies are full we can all get ready to empty our wallets as we speed towards the December “Holidays.” It’s almost time for Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa and, perhaps some other holiday I don’t yet know about.

These past few weeks there’s been a lot of hoopla in Massachusetts (where else) about the possible renaming of a “Christmas Tree.”

Yup, those folks in charge of “stuff” are trying to decide if the official state “Christmas Tree” should instead be called a “Holiday Tree” (to better include other religions and secularists during the “Holiday Season.”

Wiccan fights for religious freedom

DERBY — Make-believe witches may worry most about not getting enough chocolate today. But a real-life witch has her hands full with more pressing matters.

Alicia Folberth, a Wiccan high priestess, has persuaded the state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities to review her complaint last June that she was fired, ostensibly because of her need for time off to practice her faith.
