Abomination or AWESOME?

I love my Zune.  It’s small, and great at what it does: play music.  With my Zune Pass music subscription, I can slurp up just about any song from the Zune Marketplace for a flat rate of $15 a month.  I am also growing to quite appreciate my shiny new iPad.  My friends and family often see me as a die-hard Microsoft buff, but I know better than that.  My brother once jokingly accused me of Microsoft fanboy-ism for showing him an article about some Microsoft Research project.  I was viewing the webpage in my browser of choice, Google Chrome.

Windows Home Server (NEED MOAR DATA!)

I’m really behind on posts.  I couple weeks ago I built a new i7 computer, leaving my old (ha!)
