* Apple news:
2. Macworld Keynote tomorrow - Noon EST.
2a. TUAW has keynote predictions, here.
3. TUAW says that Apple's market share is 10%, and Windows' is the lowest ever. Here.
* I'm sure you heard, but Bill Richardson won't be our next Minister of Commerce, apparently he is just as corrupt as Corr.
* An entire website is gone ... lessons in why to backup. Some journaling website, JournalSpace, disappeared over the weekend because it only had a single back-up, running a RAID 1 configuration. Meaning that the data on the backup was just a mirror of the first drive - so when the first drive was for some reason overwritten, the second drive followed suit. Via TechCrunch, here.
* The Paper of Record is poor :( - starting this morning they have begun to sell adspace on the front page of the paper. This is a controversial move in the newspaper publishing business, but one that has become increasingly necessary due to declining revenue. Article here.
* Daily Intel ran a story over the weekend about a bunch of drunk people who had the worst NYE ever. A Metro-North train broke down just after leaving Bridgeport around 4am, sitting there without electricity (or heat) until a rescue train arrived around 6:30am. Ugh, that would suck. Here.
* Do you use iTunes? Do you rate songs? You should do both, rating songs really helps you pick out the ones you like. Anyway - a simple hack (Mac only) allows you to enable half-star ratings. Via LifeHacker, here.
* GGW has an idea for a new Brown Line ... a shoot off of the Red Line at NY Ave that would rejoin at Silver Spring. It would serve Bloomingdale/McMillian/AFRH. Here.
* BrunchDC rounds up the best brunches of 2008. #1 = Tabard Inn. Here.
* Rhee! Rhee! Rhee! Rhee has a new plan for teacher professional development. Here.
* How long will discs be around? Bluray's future, via The Paper of Record - here.
* Last week I talked about how great Benjamin Button is ... and today Jane Gross over at the NYT has a post about how infancy and old-age are really the same, which is basically what Benjamin Button shows us. An interesting movie to say the least - here.
* I passed by NextDoor, the new Ben's Chili Bowl place, and it seemed to be open. Now I just need to stop in and try it out.
