Build A PC In This Mac G5 Style Case

I’m a PC guy but really admire the looks of the Mac G5.  Lian-Li has
built a case that has the look of a G5 but accepts ATX (PC) motherboards.  Cooling is provided by 2 120 MM fans and is built of aluminum.

Business Confidence Reaches the Highest Level in 20 Years

More bad news for the Democrats.

According to this Financial Times article,
US business confidence seen at 20-year high.

Just more good economic news to report.  Maybe lower taxes is a good idea after all.  It would be good to make George W. Bush’s tax cuts permanent. I think so.

I’ve Changed My Mind About Outsourcing

Outsourcing is actually be good for our country after all. The real danger is an overreaction from our politicians during an election year.

The Heritage Foundation has done some research and presents the Ten Myths about Jobs and Outsourcing helps sets the record straight.

From the article, “The number of jobs coming from other countries to the U.S. (jobs ?insourced?) is growing at a faster rate than jobs lost overseas.”

Their Conclusion, “America’s workers deserve a more informative, less partisan debate on outsourcing. The negative impact of outsourcing on the economy and American employment has been greatly exaggerated, and the benefits of outsourcing almost entirely ignored” is well stated.
