Order of the Phoenix trailer - [5:24 PM]

Harry Potter, year fiveHPANA: "The teaser trailer for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is scheduled to debut on satellite next week, a few days after previewing in movie theatres in front of Happy Feet" - I'm always tempted to buy a ticket, watch the trailer, and leave the theatre.

Does anyone out there actually do that?

Anderson Cooper 360: "He says he's met senior al Qaeda leaders, although not Osama Bin Laden, and trained on explosives, poisons and combat. And he has a warning for the West -- pulling out of Iraq won't stop the global jihad."

It would seem so - [9:11 AM]

Scripting News: "We're headed for some bad times, no way out of it, and I think they all know it, and they're jockeying not to let the blame land on them." - I really need to quit talking about this stuff, but I can't. It's like a horrible train wreck and you can't keep yourself from looking. At this point it wouldn't surprise me if we engaged Iran. It is going to get bad, really bad.

Congress, are you listening? - [9:07 AM]

The New York Sun: "Top military officials warned Congress yesterday that a quick withdrawal of American troops from Iraq could cause the country to spiral into even deeper chaos that would destabilize the region and create a safe haven for Al Qaeda." - I hope Congress listens. Unfortunately it would seem that a withdrawal of troops is not a viable option at this point. We broke it, now we have to fix it.

Zune, not quite there - [8:26 AM]

Aran Johnson: "But the folder that these 600 songs came from, actually has 3200 music files in it. The VAST majority of which are unprotected MP3 files which are from CDs that I own." - Couple that with Vista DRM and you have quite a combination. Here's a question for ya, will Vista work with my Toshiba Gigabeat, it's a 'Plays for Sure' device?

KABOOM! - [1:12 PM]

CNN: "'I will soon send a message to the American people. The message is in the stage of preparation,' he said. Without elaborating, he said his message would be in response to U.S. government statements." - Is he making a threat, or is it just me? If they're a few months away from being capable of producing large quantities of uranium does that message come in the form of a big bomb, maybe dropped on Israel?

We'll be bombing the crap out of these guys soon. Mad world.

Poll: Do you telecommute? - [10:22 AM]

Please, if you telecommute, leave a comment. I'd like to know who you work for and what your companies telecommuting policy is, if you can share.

How many Microsofties telecommute today? What about Adobe, or Apple, or Newsgator, or...

I'm very interested because at one time I was a 'Softie that telecommuted, and apparently there are still 'Softies that telecommute.
