I just finished watching this video (requires Windows Media Player) demonstrating the next generation of the Windows operating system that includes the controversial .Net service. Blackcomb is the code name for the OS that is going to follow Windows XP [Ed: WinXP was Whistler, Win2002 is Blackcomb, get it?]. In the demo a bar on the left side of the screen has functionality very similar to the current version of the Dock found in Mac OS X.
I am a professed bag hound. I hear that admission is the first step to recovery. I have over the years bought and sold maybe two dozen different messenger bags, backpacks, and computer cases ranging from Kipling, OGIO, Trager, Brenthaven, Swiss Army, Briggs and Reilly, etc. After all this, I believe I have finally found a two computer bags that fit pretty much all my needs: the WaterField Designs Large Cargo Bag/SleeveCase and the K2 Jiver backpack.
