from the urls-we-dig-up dept

For some folks, it’s Columbus Day AND a day off from work. For those of you who didn’t go to work today, here are a few interesting stories about working in some unique (or seemingly unique) situations.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

“it’s Columbus Day”

– Not sure why this day is celebrated … seems rather silly. I remember being taught the following flat earth fallacy. Is this crap still taught?

“The idea that educated men at the time of Columbus believed that the earth was flat, and that this belief was one of the obstacles to be overcome by Columbus before he could get his project sanctioned, remains one of the hardiest errors in teaching.”

Columbus discovered America ? … Not.
Although that was what we we were all taught.

The Bing article is seems a bit off the me. At the start the author really goes out of his way to point out and make it really clear that Bing is really good. As good as if not better than Google. In fact people prefer Bing search results. Just so long as they think they came from Google. Which they likely did since MS were caught stealing Google results from users PCs.

I call FUD on that piece. It feels like it’s been written for the sake of those who regard Microsoft and it’s products as toxic.

“Apparently, he didn’t ask himself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?'”

Jobs could have asked himself the same thing and sent the letter claiming the phone. Instead he brought in the law, caused legal problems and everyone knew it was an Apple prototype anyway. If he were alive perhaps he would question his behavior also.
