Jakob Nielsen: Profit Maximization vs. User Loyalty.
My experience with open source: "I wanted to shake him. Listen to my words dude, I did it, and you can't even hear me."
NetDyslexia explains why their horse can't talk. Why would he want to? No one listens!
Eric Kidd offers "tough love" for MacBird.
I updated the MacBird home page in response to private feedback from Eric. Now it better explains why it's unique, and how I feel about it and what it can do for non-Mac platforms.
