Apple As Engadget notes, almost 1 million people jailbroke their iOS device this weekend, after the release of Abstinthe 2.0. Considering I'm actually hearing more and more non-techie users talk about jailbreaking, this doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

I use Windows on my MacBook Pro because Visual Studio, IIS and MS SQL Server only works with Windows. I use it in VirtualBox btw, but it's still Windows..

I guess you only use them due to work, and that's cool, I've been "forced" to use / support certain technologies too.

Right now I "have" to have Windows running in a virtual app just to make sure IE is supported. If I could get IE9 running in Wine I would be very happy, but so far that just doesn't seem to work (if anyone has that working, let me know).

I like MS SQL Server by the way...

Yes, it's because of work.

But I have to say that I enjoy programming in C# in Visual Studio 2010 with Entity Framework 4.

A bit more off topic stuff: I borrowed a MacBook Air power supply from a colleague one day. There was a flash-animation showing in a hidden tab in firefox in windows in virtualbox and the machine used more power than the power supply could give. At the start of the day I had 100% battery, and after about four hours I only had 60% left; with the power supply still plugged in...
