Has WordPress.Com Been Hacked?

What the hell is this in my Dashboard?

Let me remind everyone again here that I don’t lie and I don’t create hoaxes. There are already people well-known out there eager to give you a trip down their river of psychosis. That’s how they make their money.

An Amazon Tablet: Repercussions

I still waver over whether or not Amazon will release its own tablet and whether or not it will be a general tablet or a “KindlePad.”

I think it would be in Amazon’s greater interest to make it a general tablet without restricting the eBook portion of it to Kindle books.

And should Amazon enter this market, these are the effects I think it would have:
