The leading Practice Management Software vendors have agreed on new integration and compatibility features.

Apple executives have confirmed a persistent tech industry rumor that the only significant change in the new i-Thing6 is the number 6 on the log in screen.  For all practical purposes there is no real difference in performance from the current version of i-Thing.

This did not confirm the expected result. The frustrated researchers blamed, sun spots, reductions in funding and Microsoft for the failure.

A woman in Glenview IL was reported to have sat in the dental chair and said, “I would rather go to the dentist than have a baby.” Her dentist, who asked to remain anonymous, would neither confirm nor deny the incident.
