It seems that the standard 4 octet of IP addresses (ie 192.168.1.1) is coming to an end. Soon, the new technology will be coming with IP6 addresses, which while have a larger range that can be addressed will cause a bigger headache.
Why the headache you ask? The headache will lie with big businesses that have to translate the IP6 addresses to work with IP4 and vice versa.
So while the IP4 addresses are almost gone, the age of IP6 is dawning upon us and it isn't going to be an easy transition!

After reading this article, I finally believe that the whole Software Patent system is the most absurd thing known to mankind.
Seriously, companies are being sued because of rollover ads?!? That is just mind boggling. Sure rollover ads are extremely annoying but it does grab the user's attention when the stumble upon the content. For a company to have a 'patent' for something so basic to write in HTML code is beyond me.
This is just proof that the software patent system is one of the most broken systems in the world. This ranks right up there with the RIAA charging $750 per 'stolen' song. Until the governments realize that this system needs to be removed, lawyers will be raking in cash and people who try to invent something new will be sued off the planet because it has been supposedly patented even though it has never been developed or used ever!

It seems that Apple now has the right to create a text messaging service that can monitor what a person is typing. This is honestly down right crazy. Early this week, Apple submitted an trademark application for "There's an app for that".
If this doesn't make Apple a huge troll I don't know what does!

Yesterday, Apple announced a new type of tablet computer that they are calling the iPad. The iPad from initial looks is nothing more than an oversized iPhone/iPod Touch. After watching Steve Jobs’ keynote speech, I began to realize, “WTF Apple?"
It never amazes me anymore that Apple would do something like this. While I will give Apple credit that netbooks aren’t the best laptops, but they aren’t meant to do everything a normal laptop can. A netbook is for those who want a cheap portable computer that does basic tasks such as internet, email, and office documentation for the most part. A netbook was never meant to replace laptops.
A big thing with Apple’s iPad is its integration with all things iPhone/iPod Touch. The iPad can do everything that the iPod and iPhone can do just on a bigger screen (3G capabilities will come at a later date to the iPad). The other thing that Apple will have to address quickly is the fact that there are no ports for anything except power/expansion cable port (think iPod / iPhone data cable). The iPad has no USB ports, no card reader slots, no disc drive, and no expansion. Yes, Apple has done it again, users can’t upgrade or replace RAM, the battery, or anything else that a normal laptop user can replace. To top it all off, the iPod come with 3 storage options that are all internal. There is a 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavor ($499, $599, & $699 respectively). This means that once a user purchases an iPad, they are stuck with the storage space they have. This problem is made worse with the no ports that I mentioned above. The final hurdle I see with the iPad is the fact that it will not multi-task applications unless they are Apple’s applications. This means no fast switching between apps. With Windows, Linux, Unix, and even Mac OSX you can run multiple applications at once without any problems.
Even with all of these ‘features’ and issues, there will be millions of Apple faithful that will purchase the iPad no matter the outcome. They will buy it and then a couple months later be irate because Steve Jobs has announced an upgrade to the device (remember the iPhone launch). Apple is here to stay, but how loyal will their customers be?
