I’ve been watching the new thing to see how it holds up on its first day in public, and one of the feeds was about a talking clock, something that actually I don’t want in the slightest, but it said click here for a Java WebStart demo. Frankly, I’ve had bad luck with that technology, but I gave it a whack and (after downloading a couple meg and ignoring the blood-curdling security warnings) there was this slick little app that looked entirely OS-X-native intoning the time-of-day at me Britishly. Hey, this Java stuff is gonna catch on.
