Tabke takes a stab at SEO Book

From the impossible-to-link-to-a-single-entry blog:

There are guys and gals reading this right now, that are top 50 seo’s. There are also people you read every day as “experts” who couldn’t pass an SEO101 class. I know one seo who has written a successful book about SEO, who I am almost positive has never done any SEO but her/his blog.

Brett, this only further perpetuates your ignorance. You’ve lost touch with reality in the SEO world. I assure you Aaron is doing quite well with SEO.

More Macbook Pro Battery Recall Info

June 2nd, 2006 Tony 1 comment

A couple of nights ago I came home from work and broke out my Macbook Pro and ran on battery power. The battery was fully charged from being plugged in all day. Five minutes later the machine died with no warning. I pressed the power switch, the machine began to boot up but crashed again after just four seconds. I checked the physical battery indicator and it was telling me that I had zero charge.

I googled for any other people in the same boat and found that many people are experiencing this with the early revs of the machine and that Apple is silently recalling these batteries that stop holding charge. So I called Apple, explained the situation but didn’t mention that I had read about the silent recall. The support agent asked for my battery serial number and is now shipping me a replacement. My serial number doesn’t match the factory of the previous story so I guess its more widespread than previously thought.

Here is my MacBook Pro 15 inch battery serial number: 6N6085
