Twitter use explodes. “... the average age for Tweeters was in the 25- to 54-year-old range, with the over-45 set stealing the bulk of the user pie.”
IE6 CSS Fixer. I haven’t tried it yet, just thought others might be interested.
NY Times Magazine:
I Hate My iPhone. I’ve heard this from other folks with big hands, that the text-messaging keyboard is too narrow, only available in vertical alignment.
Free Flex Builder for Unemployed Developers. Cool (and smart) thing Adobe’s doing.
Popular fonts with their Mac OSX, Windows and Linux equivalents. I didn’t know the Linux equivalents. Handy.

Gmail’s dead slow,

Rekindling the Book. “As I ride the slower Amtrak train home through a dark winter landscape, I’m feeling far less sanguine about technological magic. The paperback book I’m reading suddenly feels like a marvel of efficiency.”

Multiple POP accounts through GMail,

Make iTunes and iPod classical companions. Emphasis on the ‘classical.’
Facebook and Bebo risk ‘infantilising’ the human mind. “The sheer compulsion of reliable and almost immediate reward is being linked to similar chemical systems in the brain that may also play a part in drug addiction. So we should not underestimate the ‘pleasure’ of interacting with a screen when we puzzle over why it seems so appealing to young people.” Weblogging has had its addictive attractions too, and collected similar condemnations. This is nothing new, but certainly something to be aware of for parents of teens and twenties.
