Blank or black screens can strike Macs, Linux, and Windows. Fortunately, they're relatively rare. Here's what to look for and how to troubleshoot a black screen if you encounter one.

Dead-Finger Tech: Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch unibody, 2009)

When it comes to "dead-finger tech" -- that is, technology that's so integral to your life that you'd have to pry it from your cold, dead fingers -- the choice for me is clear: the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro.All my computing life, I've switched between Macs and PCs, so I've never felt any particular allegiance to either system (my last laptop was a Dell Windows PC).

Why experience makes good business sense

I was talking with a friend yesterday about a good metaphor for why I think experience is so important for Rich Internet Applications. He stopped me and said that it was just a no brainer. "That's why people buy Apples. They do exactly what you think they should." I agreed, but there still aren't that many people buying Apples. We've seen an uptick recently because with the Intel Macs, people no longer have to chose between Windows or Mac, they can have both. Apple has built a very good niche in the PC market because of the experience, but widespread adoption has been slow in coming. One could argue that the iPod shows that you can monetize experience, but I want to go for something a little more - like cars.
