New browser. Same old Microsoft.

Check out the new "Web Slice" feature of Internet Explorer 8 (that we are now being forced to install thanks to Microsoft Update).

Makes me think of this fun moment:

Of course, I can't laugh. I am involved in a project at work in which I must carry around a laptop that is A) Windows 98 and B) has a parallel port. I needed that laptop today when the network hosed up and all I had was a console cable and no serial port on my nice new laptop. Funny how technology has that way of biting you in the rear.
