Microsoft's Vision of 2010

I came across this video on YouTube (by hearing about it on Windows Weekly) and  I have to say that it is a riot! The tablets are bulky, they still use the stylus as inefficiently as they did back in 2005 (when this video was made) and...well it's so corporate!  At least the Knowledge Navigator video by Apple was a little more "real life."This video reminded me of the awesome motorola handset

#occupy TWiT

OK, the title of this blog post is a little tongue in cheek :-)I was listening to TWig this morning (this week in Google) and Laporte and friends were talking about the new look of Google Reader.  As I've written previously, I don't dislike the new look; I was actually on the same boat as one of the guests of the program in that I just dislike the dramatic cut-back of sharing features.  Google

Greek Gods tackle the Greek Financial Crisis

OK, this was pretty humorous.  In S37E5 of Saturday Night Live we have a skit of the Greek pantheon attempting to tackle the Greek financial crisis...pretty funny! :-)

Alpha Protocol - Some final thoughts

I took opportunity of daylight savings (or whatever the heck it's called in November) to get an extra hour of game play in and finish up Alpha Protocol for the xbox360. I honestly don't remember what setting I started playing the game on (maybe easy?) but the game didn't take that long to finish (at least compared to other games).XPlay didn't give the game that great of a review, it was only

Google Reader, you just got less usable...

Man, I have to say, what a FAIL.  Yesterday morning, when I came into work I still had the "old" Google Reader interface because I had left the computer on sleep all night so when I came in I was back to where I left it.  Read a few items...shared a few others and then I refreshed...bad idea!  I got the new interface!So, I have to say, the new interface isn't bad. It's the same as Google

Παίρνεις ότι πληρώνεις…

Το περασμένο σαββατοκύριακο είχα πάει επίσκεψη στον πατέρα και πήρα μαζί και το iPad2 ως συνήθως. Το έδειξα στον πατέρα μου και φάνηκε εντυπωσιασμένος (αλλά δεν είπε τίποτα) και με ρώτησε πόσο το πήρα - του είπα $500, και με ρώτησε

Άπαιχτο! (freakin' awesome!)

A Greek song (original in music video form bellow) sung IN GREEK by a Japanese band.Now that's what I call Freakin' Awesome!I wonder if the band is learning (or speaks) Greek, or if it was all transliterated to katakana

Alpha Protocol - some initial thought

With yet another driving scene in Alone in the Dark, I decided to put this game aside and try my hand at Alpha Protocol, another game that I got in the used bin for less than $15 this past summer.  While Alone in the Dark does allow me to skip that driving scene and go to the next part of the game (perhaps this being a silent acknowledgement that some of the game mechanics don't work

iOS 5 στο iPad ναι, στα υπόλοιπα όχι.

Χτες είπα να κάτσω και να αναβαθμίσω το iPad μου αφού ούτως η άλλος δεν το είχα κάνει jailbreak. Εντάξει, εντυπωσιακό αρκετά το iOS 5 αλλά είναι ακόμα λίγο σπασικλάκι. Ναι μεν μου αρέσουν οι νέες γνωστοποιήσεις, αλλά στην οθόνη κλειδώματος

Hypertext novels?

HyperCard - one of the tools used for creating HyperText fictionI came across this article on Slate the other day on the topic of HyperText books. I have to say that the idea intrigued me since for the "early life" of HyperText stories I was in Greece and I didn't have a computer, and for the latter part of their life (in the 90s anyway), I wasn't really interested in reading novels, much less so on
