Good show. The Nook is an android device so I don't see MS going after that directly. One interesting thing I heard about the Barnes and Noble rumor (I think from Paul Thorrott) is that it's not so much about the nook tablets themselves as it is about the college e-textbook business. I'm not sure what else to make of it though.
I've never had a job I was embarrassed about or was crazy in a fun way. My history mostly consists of a long string of restaurant jobs until I graduated. Then I worked as a Developer at an ISP and then as a Developer at my current job. In a small way I guess I may regret the straight forward, obvious path I've taken to get here. It might be nice to have a more interesting past. On balance though I'm very happy with the way things have turned out. Maybe I'll have an interesting retirement.
