   I really do not like that this website starts to look like an obituary list but this one cannot go unmentioned. Dennis Ritchie (also known with his username dmr) has exited the world with exit code 0. If you do not know who he is first of all shame on you and second you have probably heard of a certain programming language called C. How about an operating system called Unix? He created them.

Steve Jobs Becomes One with the Internet

Steve Jobs Becomes One with the Internet
   This morning I felt a great disturbance in the Internet. As it turned out Steve Jobs decided to become one with the Internet. If you do not think he is a hero of our time you have not seen Pirates of Silicon Valley enough times. Stop what you are doing right now and go watch it. If at first you do not succeed and end up thinking the main characters are thieves, salesmen or something similar watch it again until you get truly excited about what they did. If you work in the IT industry and do not think Steve Jobs is a hero you failed, period.

   If I create my own company one day I will ask questions about the times when Steve Jobs changed the world when hiring. The interviewee will not be judged by the historical accuracy of his answers but by the level of excitement and awe he shows.

   Steve Jobs is so powerful that since he became one with the Internet I feel a desire to buy an iPad and an iPhone.

The Curious Case of Internet Explorer 6 in South Korea

The Curious Case of Internet Explorer 6 in South Korea
   As a devoted StarCraft fan I happen to know a bit more about South Korea than the regular European. One of the things I know is that it is very high-tech country. This is why I was surprised to find out that 22% of the Internet users in South Korea today use Internet Explorer 6. This is really big number second only to China. How come this tech savvy nation ends up with such a big usage share of this outdated browser?

Bing Steals from Google. So What?

Bing Steals from Google. So What?
   You have probably read the news about Google accusing Microsoft of stealing their search results. The reaction of Microsoft moved in the whole range from not denying to accusing Google of click fraud. Undoubtedly the whole Internet population eagerly awaits my verdict on this case.
