The battle for an open document standard

There’s been a lot of talk about Microsoft’s Office Open XML format and the competing Open Document Format (ODF) recently. Some favor ODF, some favor Open XML and some wonder if we can’t all just get along. The race for the desktop standard continues to heat up, with Ecma International expected to certify Open XML as a standard later this week. What exactly is at stake for Microsoft and for the open-source community? ZDnet takes a close look at Microsoft’s bid for XML format dominance and finds this most recent battle to be inextricably bound to Microsoft’s Office business model. “ODF and Linux represent the first chinks in Microsoft’s armor in a long time. And just like the way Microsoft is going to do everything it can to protect [its desktop software business], others are going to do all they can to exploit that weakness,” said Andrew Updegrove, an attorney and standards blogger.

Review of the Ultimate Omega Planet Ocean Replica Watch

I actually find it quite boring that there’s nothing more to complain about this watch. It’s almost like reviewing a genuine watch. You know… “it’s just a Planet Ocean, you have all seen it before”.
What was really surprising was how HUGE this watch feels. It dwarfs the 4th Generation, which is by no means a small watch. Needless to say it makes any Rolex look like a ladies’ watch. It weighs amazing 230 grams!!! This is identical with the genuine, so it’s definitely not for anorectic wrists.

Here you can see the comparison shot with some other famous Omega models. As you can see the 45mm Planet Ocean is humongous.
Buy it on the for $199
