- How To Turn Your Hamster into a Fighting Machine! Really helpful. Lots of spelling mistakes. But at least now I know where I went wrong in strapping the spade to poor little Fidgit…
- HTMLstamps – intriguing and slightly random way for web designers to indicate how the pages should be coded up… I don’t really know what I think about this, but then again I’ve always been slightly suspicious of designing web sites in Illustrator or Photoshop, even though I do it too…
- Daring Fireball takes the piss out of the Dell MP3 player It’s just a bit rubbish. It’s all so dull. Why won’t someone do something good. Surely it can’t be that hard!?
- Ian Betteridge explains (to folks in the UK) what to do when a PC goes wrong Bloody good advice. Really interesting. Little bastards won’t know what hit ’em…

Yes, the Dell MP3 player does look dreadful, but there are plenty of other nice-looking MP3 players. Here are links to images of few models I rather like design-wise (yes, more so than the iPod and iPod Shuffle)

Ooh – that MPIO is tiny and shiny… Still, you’ve got to ask – does it come from Apple? No? Thought not.
A bit back, writing (FWIW) about IBM’s iSeries servers, I argued that products like the iPod demonstrate that there’s a market for technically superior products with an inflated price tag, just as long as they’re marketed to death. (So that would be two out of three for the iSeries.) The story of Apple, in the i-era, has been the story of highly effective marketing in the service of highly marketable design. It’s a difficult combination to beat; the MPIO might be a fine bit of kit, but its mindshare is non-existent.
