Blue Screen of Death used as Fuzz Prop at NIN concert!

I know, this is the famous blue screen of death that has been haunting Windows users for the last decade and now it’s being used as part of a background prop for NIN concert.

Yes, Windows is officially crap…watch the video to see the blue screen of death in action although it’s really hard to see. (Jump to 1:04)

Time to Boycott BestBuy and Circuit City during Microsoft’s Marketing Antics!

Instead of using their $300 million on customer services/refunds for wrongly-installed Vistas on brand new laptops/PCs, Microsoft is trying to copy Apple Genius strategy by having 155 Microsoft Vista experts roam around your local BestBuy and CircuitCity.

Windows XP runs on iPhone with Citrix!

Here’s a cool news that you can run Windows XP remotely on an iPhone.  Which doesn’t surprise me since that’d be a good way to check up on your home computer while traveling.  The funny thing is it uses “unix” app to do that, meaning there’s Unix underlying the whole thing so if Windows gives you a blue death screen, you will still be okay.

Windows XP, seen below running on the iPhone, was loaded using Citrix’s thin client desktop software XenDesktop. Using the Citrix ICA client — a UNIX application tha
