Asterisk and Unusual Business Ideas That Work

My father sent me a link to this article about the author of Asterisk, the open source phone system. This system lets you do amazing things with phones and computers; I hope to get a chance to play with it sometime, as I've heard great things about it. As I usually do when I read an interesting article on a blog, I went to the main page to look at what else it has. This one is a very interesting blog for anyone interested in business, startups, and disruptive ideas.

Software I just installed: Qnext

Qnext is a cool application that connects you to people in just about every way imaginable! It's got text, audio, and video chat (it supports AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, and ICQ too), but also music streaming, picture sharing, file transfer, multiplayer games like chess and go, and even remote computer access! I've just started playing with it, so I'll try to follow up with a real review soon. So far, it's great! It's a big download (about 30 mb I think) and people have reported it using a large amount of resources, but I haven't had any trouble so far, and I'm on a Fujitsu T3010D tablet with 512mb of ram and a 1.4GHz Pentium M which occasionally freezes up under Firefox, so it's working beautifully as far as I'm concerned ;-). The only trouble I've had so far is with being unable to remotely connect to my computer from my computer, but I'm sure I'll figure that out soon enough. Let me know what you think of it if you try it out!

Cheaper laptop-buying tip

Like designer furniture, clothing, and such, laptops from big-name brands are often more expensive than those sold under lesser-known names. In some cases, the lesser-known manufacturer may even be the manufacturer of the big-name branded lappies! Take a look at this Cnet article.
