TechnologyRight now I'm writing this on a laptop I borrowed from work (because the battery on mine sucks) while sitting in the back seat of my sister's truck doing 75 MPH through Maryland.

Technology is da nutz.

If you're curious, my aforementioned Nokia E70 is acting as a passthrough with GPRS to the Internet, and Bluetooth to the borrowed MacBook Pro (which is running Leopard, as an aside).

Yes, I'm reveling in this, and I'm not even a Mac fanboy. In fact, several people have raised eyebrows at the fact that they've seen me using one, but whatever - it's pretty, it runs well, has a pretty good battery, and it took me less than five minutes to find and disable the "assume the user is an idiot" checkbox.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure I would've had equal success with a Dell or HP or whatever. The MacBook just happens to be what was available.

Hm. If I seem less coherent than usual, it's because I'm working on approximately one hour of sleep.

    a software program, then find the actual program that
    should be removed. Right click on it and pick Uninstall.
