MS Guru writes a thriller, MS OneNote starts in iPhone

What a crazy world, one can say… Still it is true:

New book of Mark Russinovich

Mark Russinovich has wrote a thriller book named Zero Day. Something about cyber crime, cyber attacks and so on. I won’t even read the excerpts: I’ll just get this book as soon as I can after it is out (March 2011). Pre-0rder i$ @v@i1@b1e. Winking smile

OneNote is on iPhone/iPod.

And it even works, though I haven’t yet fully synchronized it from my SkyDrive storage. The process is to be continued soon, though.Download it on the Apple store and enjoy. It is “free for a limited time”
