Greetings, techwhirlers:

Hot news from Beantown - Steve Jobs announced at MacWorld today that
Microsoft will be making a $150 million investment in Apple. The two
companies agreed to put aside a dispute over whether Microsoft infringed
on Apple's patents.

The MacWorld crowd did not take this well.


I have no religion about platforms - in fact, I'm AC/DC :-) - use a Mac
at home and an NT at work. But it was nice to have Apple around to (at a
loss for words here - counterbalance? offset?) annoy Microsoft.

And yes, I think this is relevant to technical writing, particularly the
tools we use to do our work.
