Jon Winter notes that Jim Matthews, author of the popular, but now-dated, Mac FTP client Fetch, won $500,000 on tonight's episode of "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" "He whipped through most of the questions and didn't use his lifelines until the very end. The last question, he asked the audience and they picked wrong. He wasn't sure so he took the half million and walked away."
