On the card for today: Mike Rowe vs. Microsoft

Wow, it seems that a 17 year old Canadian named Mike Rowe and highly unpopular software monopoly Microsoft are at odds over a trivial matter. Microsoft does not like that Mike Rowe named his domain mikerowesoft.com. It seems that they want to buy the domain from Mike Rowe for ten bucks. Mike Rowe was offended by this offer and said he would sell it to Micorsoft for ten grand. Microsoft says he is tryin' to force them into a big settlement. [story here]

I liked what Mike had to say about it:

"It's not their name. It's my name. I just think it's kind of funny that they'd go after a 17-year-old."

What a funny, ridiculous story! Microsoft is just way off base on this one. (Christ, I hope they don't sue me for saying that!)
