Alright, Let's See It.
It is that time again, time for Apple fanboys to go all out and present as many unfounded rumors as they can possibly muster in a week’s time.
The time leading up to a new Apple presentation has historically been filled with massive amounts of wild stories about what new shiny product the Cupertino powerhouse corporation will be coming out with next.
Though I understand everyone’s enthusiasm for the upcoming event and the possibility of an Apple-branded tablet PC, I think that I am once again going to be underwhelmed by the news. Here’s why.
What’s this? A new Worthless Genius Podcast Episode?
It’s been forever since the last episode of the Worthless Genius Podcast, so bear with me as I get back into the swing of things.

I was messing around with my XP install, trying to find a way to clearly divide the two main workflows that I have, and automate switching between, making it as easy–and fast–as possible to get things done.
