I’ve been a fan of Crazy Browser for a long time, been using it for more than last 3-4 years now. Its a great piece of software & a must have if you love using IE & doesn’t eat away CPU like Avant Browser, its closest competitor. But what had been saddening was that Crazy Browser’s development had been dormant, the last release had been v1.05 on 4th April 2002. 🙁 It still lacked some features as per today’s needs & some bug fixes.Read More

A US eCommerce website www.tigerdirect.com has sued Apple Computer Inc. over the use of ‘Tiger’ for the new OS-X release. TigerDirect says that Apple is infringing its trademark!!
Now that’s just ridiculous!! ‘Tiger’ is a name of a class of animals, anyone can use that name, you just can’t have a copyright on it!! Its just saying that you can’t use the word ‘Air’ in your product promotions etc. simply because Nike has a copyright on it!! Its saying that if Tiger Woods starts a computer business, he’ll get sued as well, why there’s a ‘Tiger’ in his name or in his company’s name!! 🙄 This is just freakingly ridiculous!!Read More
