The History of Microsoft – 1975 (Channel 9)

Channel 9 has started a new show called History of Microsoft where they take each year from 1975 and later and go through, well, the history of Microsoft.

Here is a quote from the first episode on Channel 9:

Thirty-four years ago, a nineteen year old kid and his twenty-two year old business partner sold their first program to a little computer company in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The program was called BASIC, and it was the start of this company we call Microsoft.

And here is the video.


DSi Browser faster than DS Browser

I bought the DS Browser from eBay sometime late in 2006. At the time, I think it was a usefull product. But time has changes by then. The new Nintendo DSi have a internet browser built in, and still made by Opera. The great thing about this is that you don’t have to change cartridge to surf the web and internet reports (GoNintedo.com) has it that the DSi browser is faster than the old DS Browser. Great.

Here is a YouTube video uploaded by BattleHappen, showing the facts.
