Google To Take Chrome Out Of Beta
Why? It is half-baked. Awful cookie management, no way to deal with scripting, no extensions (yet). I have it on my desktop and it is labeled "Promiscuous Browsing". And Gmail is still beta?

Front page of the Business section of Sunday New York Times.... and they STILL cannot make it clear! Let's get this straight, spear-fishing can snare anyone at any time.

General Joseph Hall (who took over from Schwartzkopf) is unhappy with civilian incompetence in Iraq war: ust a couple of thoughts to kind of get things going. I can’t begin without once more saying that this was the wrong war at the wrong time fought with incredible incompetence on the part of the civilian leadership.

Want to know the definition of "a work of lunatic scholarship".... Alan W. Pollack's Notes on ... Series: " In 1989 the American musicologist Alan W. Pollack started to analyze the songs of the Beatles. He published his first results on internet. In 1991 — after he had finished the work on 28 songs — he bravely decided to do the whole lot of them. About ten years later, in 2000 he completed the analysis of the official Beatles' canon, consisting of 187 songs and 25 covers. Here we have ordered this massive work in five categories. And, for your convenience, we've added an alphabetical, a canonical and a chronological index as well as a short introduction."
