Toward a Unified Software Platform?

XAML: Coming soon to Mac OS X.
"...a fascinating aspect of XAML, is that it’s getting Microsoft even closer to this ultimate abstraction layer of their User Interface Framework, that just might, beyond Mono and Cocoa#, dramatically simplify the process of “porting” a Vista application to Mac OS X, and other platforms."

Katie Strand @ The Cat Club

Brandy and I just came back from watching an awesome performance by Katie Strand at The Cat Club on Sunset blvd. She's got an amazing voice, a unique sound, and an engaging collection of original songs.

Noteworthy Service Launches: Zillow-Killer, Frucall recently launched a Zillow-killing home valuation engine. I'm liking better than because they work in Safari, their interfaces and features feel more intuitive and not nerdy. Oh and they do appear to have a little thing called a business model, imagine that: juicy realtor and home-lending referrals. The fact that they value my home slightly higher than Zillow ... doesn't hurt either heh. Kudos to Joe's team :)

Someone dropped me a note about Frucall. It lets you call them up from your cell phone to get comparison shopping information for just about any product. Sounds pretty useful! :)
