Xbox Shoes

I'm slightly lost for words over these. They look kinda cheaply made, but I'm sure someone will be into them. There's plenty of puns you could make about Microsoft and Shoe ins, but I'll skip that.

Workplace Component Domino forms Beta v2

For all you Domino developers out there who were thinking you'd need to retrain into Workplace, or at least get used to Workplace Designer: You don't. Now you're going to become Component Designers. I don't want to design components. I want to design the whole widget.

Amiga CEO interview

Amiga announced a few days ago that they had acquired the Indian company Ruksun Software Technologies, and renamed it Amiga Development India.

Slideshare: Youtube for Powerpoint

Slideshare does exactly what it says, allows you to share slides online. It's an idea which has a lot of commercial application for sharing and publising slideshows. It also has potential to save a lot of disk space for providers such as Gmail and Hotmail.
