1.  Microsoft pulled the plug on our beloved Windows XP OS.  Whaaaa.  It really was a great OS (definitely compared to Vista).  Don’t worry, you can still buy Windows XP online… – GoSee

2.  I probably need to do a more detailed post on this, but the zero capital gains tax rate can really bring some wealth to a lot of taxpayers (when sold in 2008, 2009 or 2010).  You can sell some capital property you’ve held long term (over one year, that is) and pay no taxes (rules may not apply to you so check with your tax adviser).  Forbes has a great article on this – GoSee

3.  I’ve been trying out the Jott service, which transforms voice into text.  This could be in the form of e-mails, blogs, tweets, etc.  Basically, you call the service (after you’ve signed up) and tell it whom you want to Jott, and it sends an email to that person (and text message to their cell phone if you so chose).  You can Jott yourself as reminders, or even Jott groups (like the Accounting Department, which is very near and dear to my heart) – GoSee

Thanks, Jason M. Blumer
