I hate chain mails…

Yes, I will be breaking the chain or rather the mesh!The volume of chain emails that I get has gone down as people have matured in their email use, but I still get four or five chain mails per week. I realize that most people who send these emails our are doing so because they care about the subject, but simply clicking forward, without cleaning up the list of 100+ other recipients is simply unwieldy!

Με την έλευση του νέου iPhone, έχουμε και την έλευση νέων δυνατοτήτων όσων αφορά το hardware του iPhone.  Αν και πάνω κάτω μου αρέσει το νέο iPhone, υπάρχουν καλά, κακά και μέτρια όσων αφορά τις νέες ικανότητες και τα ικανότητες που δεν

Η καφετέρια πάει κατά διαβόλου!

Το γραφείο ήταν κρύο σήμερα (έξω κάνει 39 Κέλσιου, μέσα 5!), οπότε είπα να πάω να αγοράσω έναν ζεστό γαλλικό καφέ να ζεσταθούν τα όργανα. Πήγα σε ένα «καφέ» που παλιότερα είχε αρκετό καλό φαί (σαλάτες φρέσκιες, σάντουιτς, και

Television Tuesday: The Tick

I am surprised at how many people do not know of The Tick. The Tick is a comic book, that became an animated series, and then became a live action television show with Patrick Warburton (also known as Putty from Seinfeld). The series takes place in “the city” where anyone can become a superhero, provided that they get their superhero’s license. The tick is superhuman strong, but doesn’t

WWDC 2008 Αντιδράσεις: Mobile Me

Είδαμε αρκετά φέτος στο WWDC.  Ένα από αυτά ήταν το Mobile Me, η υπηρεσία που θα μεταμορφώσει το τωρινό .Mac.  Η αλήθεια είναι πως το όνομα Mobile Me δεν μου αρέσει καθόλου.  Πραγματικά προτιμώ το .Mac ή την παλιά ονομασία iTools. Τα email μου τα

Κάποιος άκουει!

Άκουσα τις προάλλες από έναν συνάδελφο ότι η βιβλιοθήκη και το τμήμα ΙΤ θα ενωθούν κατά κάποιον τρόπο. Έχουν αρχίσει ήδη οι διαδικασίες, που μάλλον θα τελειώσουν σε περίπου δύο χρόνια. Το ωραίο της κατάστασης είναι ότι αυτό

Go to college, get a Mac, get a free iPod Touch

A few weeks ago I saw Apple’s new promotion. Get a new Mac, get a free 8GB iPod Touch! The offer is for college students, but since I am a graduate student, the offer still stands for me.OK, I thought to myself, an iPod touch is a nice little web browsing device, I can put on it my most listened to music and podcasts, and use my older, four year old, iPod for more heavy duty tasks (such as outdoor

GarnetVM Beta 2

Garnet VM beta 2 was released last week for the Nokia Internet Tablets. I decided to give it a try and see what’s new since beta 1. I do not have that many apps for palm since I was never really a user of the palm platform. I have the local commuter rail map and schedule application, google maps, and some freeware games that I downloaded a while back to test the virtual machine.The first thing

Not a happy camper!

OK...I am not a happy camper!My car made weird sounds when I turned the steering wheel. I took it to my local place for an oil change (regular maintenance) and asked them to look into it. They told me that the steering column was leaking power steering fluid and it will need to be replaced by the dealer. I am not upset that its leaking, after all my car is 8 years old, so some major maintenance is
