Social profiles living on after a person's death - some thoughts

A while back I read this post (I wish I could remember the link) about Facebook suggesting that he reconnect with his friend but there was one gotcha in this situation - his friend had passed away a number of months ago - therefore even if this person tried to "reconnect" it would be a one-way conversation (unless they enlisted the help of medium).In any case, this got me thinking.  These days

Assassin's Creede | Complete!

Well, this past weekend, after quite a few weeks of late nights and weekend game play, I completed the first Assassin's Creed for the XBOX. I'd heard a lot about this game, both on 1up and on G4 when it first came out, and I guess the game was a success because Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed Botherhood are already out for consoles! Not to mention of course the Nintendo DS, the PSP and the

There goes Symbian Guru!

Well, along with the death of the KIN last week, another piece of shocking news came out about the closure of Symbian-Guru.  I've known Ricky from my Moderator days over at Howard Forums, and I've been following him on twitter.  Anyone who had won't be surprised at the distance between him and Nokia.This morning I also listened to All About Symbian and they had some thoughts on the subject

The Kin's dead! Long live the...

well... I guess "long live Windows Phone 7" it is!It surprised me that Microsoft killed the KIN last week, not because it was an awesome product, but because they took such little time between launch and cancellation (and apparently they sunk a quarter million dollars in ads).  I guess we won't be finding out if what's-her-name has real friends on the road trip she is going on or if they are all

Καλοκαιρινές βραδιές

Το καλοκαίρι είναι η αγαπημένη μου εποχή. Ναι, μπορεί να κάνει αφόρητη ζέστη, μπορεί να χρειάζεσαι έρ κοντίσιον που και που, αλλά αυτά είναι μικροπράγματα επειδή το όφελος είναι τεράστιο! Τι καλοκαίρι μπορείς πραγματικά

MediaFly demo over - lukewarm results

Well, I gave MediaFly a once over this past week to see if it can replace me syncing with iTunes for my podcasts, or me having to remember all the podcasts I subscribe to so I can search for new episodes on iTunes on my iPod Touch (or iPhone).  There were some good things, and some things that made using the app on the iPhone annoying as hell.The thing that drove me to the app is the seamless

Αρχίσαμε τις προετοιμασίες!

Άρχισα λοιπόν τις προετοιμασίες για τον Σεπτέμβρη!  Άρχισα να σχεδιάζω το τι θα κάνω για την πρακτική στην γλωσσολογία (θα είμαι βοηθός καθηγητού αρχαίων ελληνικών). Έκανα μια μετατροπή των powerpoint της καθηγήτριας από μια

Weekend Technology WINs and FAILs

Well, this past weekend I drop up to NH to visit my brother. The one time I wanted music on my iPhone (or iPod) and I didn't have it due to the whole "update ate my music" thing. I luckily had pandora, last.fm, slacker and a few downloaded podcasts that I could use!  Driving up I noticed a few WINs in the iPhone/iOS 4 combo, as well as some FAILs.First off, Last.fm is a major fail!  I was

GPS on iOS 4 a little wonky?

Apparently I can walk on water and fly! And no, this isn't in SecondLife :-) I went for a walk during lunch today and I turned on SportyPal to track my "workout." This is the first time I've used SportyPal since upgrading to iOS 4. As you can see from the graphic, I can walk on water, and fly in all types of crazy manners :) SportyPal allows you to edit your work out (and I did), but it makes me
