Blogger users can now use Microsoft word to publish Blog Entries

Posted by geeknews at 5:35 PM on August 16, 2005

Seems like Microsoft and Google have jumped into bed and now Blogger users have a cool plugin for word. My question is why did they not create a similar plugin for OneNote that would have been really cool. Now we will see if someone can get Microsoft to make it work with other blogging tools. The API is their and should take about a hour of a good programmers time to do it.. [Blogger]

Apple probably sued Bloggers to keep lid on Intel deal!

Posted by geeknews at 3:09 PM on June 9, 2005

Companies will go to great lengths to protect their bottom lines. Just yesterday I was getting my twice monthly Shiatsu session and I was talking with the gentleman that has allowed me to live with less pain. He had a brand new powerbook sitting their, and I asked him what he thought about the Intel deal. His comment was, if I had known they were going to do this I would have waited a year.

I am hearing this comment a lot, and I am sure that Apple will have slower sales in the notebook arena till the next generation of power books are sitting in Apple stores with Intel inside.

Getting back to the point, an article on Infoworld is speculating that Apple did their gestapo tactics to keep the lid on the Intel deal. It was a warning across the bow, you talk about the deal and we will smash you, because we need to make sure that our stock holders get some return on their investment before we make this announcement, which will have sales going south on the powerbook front.
