Saw on The Unofficial Microsoft Blog a reference to a cNet article: IE updates are going to be for XP only going forward (sorry about the *going forward*. If you have one of the older OS's, it's going to cost $99USD. More from cNet. Tell 'em to take a digital hike. Go here.

McDonald's Centralizing Drive-Up Window Order Taking
McDonald's is reportedly centralizing some drive-up window order taking in a Colorado Springs call center. When you place your order at some McDonald's drive-up windows, the person you're talking to may be in another state (assuming you're not in Colorado). Your order is then sent to a computer screen in the restaurant you're buying from. A hidden camera snaps a digital picture of you so the minimum-wage teenager who hands over your burger can match your face with your order. Instant Prediction: Offshoring drive-up window order taking to India will be tested within the year. Snide media commentators will label them "Bangalore Burgers." You heard it here first, folks!
The Raw Feed had a ton of cool Tech related posts. And you really do hear it there first.
