Roll Your Own DSL Roll Your Own Roll your own DSL
Topic: Business 3:26 pm EDT, Aug 30, 2003

This is the week I said we'd roll our own DSL. On the surface it looks like a daunting task, but it is actually not that hard at all — if you can get past the many regulatory loopholes. But why would you even want to do such a thing? Well maybe DSL isn't available in your area. Maybe you want a significantly cheaper alternative to a T-1 line. Or just maybe you and the kid down the block want to play networked games at warp speed. Well here is how to do it.


Ready for round 2? :)

Apple shareholders approve treating options as an expense
Topic: Business 7:29 pm EDT, Apr 26, 2003

Apple Computer could become the first Silicon Valley technology company to treat employee stock options as an expense, with shareholders approving the accounting change today over the objections of the company's board of directors.

The Apple board recommended against the proposal from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, saying it would hinder the company's ability to attract and retain key employees and would produce less accurate financial statements because there is no standard way to calculate the cost.

Internet Inventor joins Apple Board of Directors
Topic: Business 8:43 pm EST, Mar 19, 2003

In a statement, CEO Steve Jobs noted that Gore is an avid Mac user who edits his own videos using Final Cut Pro. However, Gore's support of the Mac has not been unwavering, with the politician having said three years ago that he had switched from a Mac to a PC. Gore was chosen as a director at a meeting of Apple's board earlier Wednesday.

"Al brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and wisdom to Apple from having helped run the largest organization in the world--the United States government," Jobs said. "Al is going to be a terrific director, and we're excited and honored that he has chosen Apple as his first private sector board to serve on."
