Hmm, Back to a MAC?!

Looks like I will rejoin the Apple family when it is time to replace my current laptop:

Once you’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That’s the “alt” key for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.

Update (4/6): Alex Tabarrok notes that Apple wasn’t first to the finish line in providing this functionality.

A Day in the Life…

…of Bill Gates:

Days are often filled with meetings. It’s a nice luxury to get some time to go write up my thoughts or follow up on meetings during the day. But sometimes that doesn’t happen. So then it’s great after the kids go to bed to be able to just sit at home and go through whatever e-mail I didn’t get to. If the entire week is very busy, it’s the weekend when I’ll send the long, thoughtful pieces of e-mail. When people come in Monday morning, they’ll see that I’ve been quite busy— they’ll have a lot of e-mail.

The rest of the article has some interesting comments on managing email, maintaining focus, communication and enhancing productivity.
