Meme Alert! Tiger Blog Definition


I’m not normally a sucker for jumping in on memes, but this was just too good not to. Found it over at The Unofficial Apple Blog (who found it at RobotJohnny). It is the definition of blog from the Dashboard dictionary program (for those that aren’t down with the lingo, Dashboard is a new feature on Tiger that has all these little programs that do various functions like define words). I haven’t actually tried it myself, but assuming they’re not making this up, I’m quite impressed with Apple’s definition prowess.

If you ask me, that’s the best definition of blog I’ve ever heard. They nailed NoahBrier.com to a “t.”
