CNet is running a story on Amazon's new "In Theaters service". I've said here before that I think Amazon isn't worth a darn as a company. Don't get me wrong what they've done as far as online purchasing of books and music is cool, but as a company I'd say they'll eventually go away(purchased counts here too b.t.w.). Why? Well isn't it obvious? They don't turn a profit! If companies that sell books, CD's, and the other stuff Amazon does would just get together and make a sort of virtual mall one would think they could drive Amazon into the ground! That's just my opinion of course and most people probably don't agree with me on this point. I still like to buy books the old fashioned way. Go to the bookstore, browse through the books you're interested in, and buy it if it suits you.

Anyway... I decided to give the new service a try but it looks like it doesn't really work unless you actually have a theater in your zip code. I live in a small town that doesn't have a movie theater, but the city next door does! Typing in our zip code produces zero results, that's kind of a bummer wouldn't you say?

Thankfully works just fine thank you very much and as an added bonus I can get there from my wife's phone! Ahhh that's what I call a GOOD online service.

Well I'm updating the layout again, messing with colors and the like. I know if looks kinda funky but I really wanted something different as far as colors go.

Let's see if I can actually get this to publish properly!

That's all for now, catch ya later.

Howdy all. I haven't posted for a while so I thought I'd throw some stuff out here.

I spent last week at N+I in Las Vegas and had a good time showing off Visio. We're preparing to release our Enterprise Network Tools add-ons and were showing a "Technology Preview" at the show. I gotta say it's pretty strange going from being Visio Corporation to being a part of Microsoft. Here we are showing Visio in the Microsoft booth that is jam packed with people I've never met before, weird. But I guess in a company of 45+ thousand that's going to happen.

Another strange thing is the types of questions you get as a Microsoft employee! People think we know everything about every Microsoft product! Not this kid. My one and only brain cell is stretched to capacity dealing with "How to" questions related to Visio, much less "How do you do this with Word?" or "How can I do this with Win2k?". Scary!

Well I guess that's enough for now. Back to the salt mine!
