Netscape Down to Four Percent

Can this possibly be true?

WebSideStory, Inc. ( ), the leader in outsourced Web analytics, today reported that the percentage of Web surfers using Netscape worldwide continues to dwindle, and is now at record lows. As of Aug. 26, 2002, Netscape’s global usage share had dropped to 3.4 percent, down from 13 percent at this time last year, according to the independently produced report from WebSideStory’s StatMarket®.

Are they counting Mozilla and all of its variations in this mix?

RIAA and Swappers Seek End to Lawsuite

But both sides think they should win.

Both sides want to end the copyright infringement lawsuit against popular file-swapping services Kazaa, Morpheus and Grokster quickly–they just disagree on who should win.

I know who I think should win… if you’ve read [[Courtney Love’s Speech]] and [[Why The Recording Industry Sucks]], you should too.

If you’re a musician, you should definitely be on the side of the services, not the RIAA.


Apple has annouced the end of its classic operating system.

Apple® today announced that starting in January 2003, all new Mac® models will only boot into Mac® OS X as the start-up operating system, though they will retain the ability to run most Mac OS 9 applications through Apple’s bundled “Classic” software.

It’s about time. OSX is so far superior to the Classic MacOS in so many ways that its hard to conceive of a sentence that can mention them both in the same breath (although, I just did [[:-)]]).
