8. Great Label Printers

Nice looking mailing and shipping labels make a statement about you - and/or your business. But printing to sheets of laser or inkjet labels can be a real pain when all you want are one or two labels at a time. This brief article talks about one line of label printers that's particularly convenient, inexpensive, plays nice on a network, and is super-easy to program.

9. It's Done: Borland is No More
A trip down memory lane: Borland 1983-2009
Micro Focus buys Borland. The decline of Borland is now complete. The once legendary software company is no more! Okay, for those of us that worked at Borland and those that loved their development tools, it pretty much was over years ago. For me, I'm still a big fan of the CodeGear development tools, especially Delphi and Prism, but the fanatical culture and clarity of purpose was over when Philippe Kahn left. I've been following Borland ever since I left the company in 1995 and every time I heard of a stupid move, I cringed. I'm sure all of us who have watched the decline of Borland over the years have a list of stupid Borland moves.

10. John McCain Introduces Bill Against Net Neutrality

Despite it's name, "The Internet Freedom Act of 2009" does not free the Internet. It's an attack against Net Neutrality and yet another attempt to give the Internet to big business.

What is Net Neutrality? Net neutrality (also network neutrality, Internet neutrality) frees restrictions on content, sites, or platforms, on the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and on the modes of communication allowed, as well as one where communication is not unreasonably degraded by other communication streams.
