OSNews, Generic OSes The past week ranks pretty high on the uninteresting weeks list, with few things of note happening in the tech industry. Still, we learned when the release candidate for Windows 7 will be arriving, the Ubuntu 9.04 beta arrived, the RIAA got a smiling nod of approval from the Obama administration, and, well, that's about it. This week's My Take is about The Cardigans.

They had like 3 or 4 different endings for that video. All of them were hilarious (ok one was basically just gory).

Has anyone else noticed that there is a stain on a car seat from the fake tattoo in the video for this song?

Curiously just this morning I found a nice article with the Google Query (( mote crazy eddie Niven archetypes )). OK "Niven archetype" I tacked on AFTER finding the article - for years I've been fascinated by the "Crazy Eddie" archetype and tend to browse around, as today, when North Korea's Kim is rattling-non-rubber-saber.
Having a good catalog of archetypes is so important, even in programming.

Haven't been to OSnews in a very long time... come back to check it out and I find the place has turned into Mr. Thom Holwerda's personal blog site.

Don't get me wrong, The Cardigans are a great band, it's the presentation here that's umm... who made this person an authority on just-about-everything?

Don't mean to flame anyone, just commenting on how the site has changed... used to be quite different.

And when you left it was probably Eugenia's blog. I don't care if it's a news site or a blog, it's always a good read.

-- It's clearly labelled "My Take", you only had to read two words to skip "My Take"
-- The "My Take" came at the end, just like Andy Rooney's "A Few Minutes" comes at the end of "60 Minutes", so that you can switch channels without missing any actual news.
-- Holwerda beats Andy Rooney anyway, hmm ?

That was actually an interesting read and the videos are fun in a couple ways.

My only question is .. what in the hells were you doing watching the US version of "The Office"? ;)

They've done a cover of Black Sabbath's Iron Man. I found it on Spotify. Nina's soft voice singing the Iron Man lyrics is very odd but it's a cool cover! ;)
