Think Different

Nerd Vittles is a great place to learn how to implement some of the coolest technology with your home computer. I've fallen in love with Ward's Mac mini series that delves into some very cool uses for the mini (web server, audio server, movie server, home automation center, etc.). Now, in the post-Katrina months, Ward asks some very good questions about technology. Turns out there's an easy solution to communications that no one is willing to implementing, and yes, this is serious technology using that leftover Pringles can. Microsoft or Apple or Sprint or AT&T reading this column? If so, there may be some serious challenges to our current way of doing things. Nerd Vittles is truly implementing Apple's old slogan: Think Different!
