Classical music - mobile phone style

I came across this ad a few weeks back but it was lingering in my starred items folder.I have to say that if this is actually a true undertaking, it's pretty amazing!According to Engadget, Vodafone NZ's Symphonia features 1000 cellphones syncing 53 different ringtone alerts from 2000 sent messages to reconstruct Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture

Δύο χάλια ταινίες!

Το περασμένο σαββατοκύριακο πήγα στην βιβλιοθήκη και δανείστηκα μερικές ταινίες, και συγκεκριμένα έκατσα και είδα δύο από αυτές. Η πρώτη ήταν μια ταινία με τον Στήβεν Σεγκάλ, που ήξερα πως θα ήταν μούφα αλλά είπα να γελάσω

Voicemail - the google way!

I have to say that I love google voice!Even though there was a spat between Apple, ATT an Google over the use of it on the iPhone and the FCC is trying to make heads and tails of the situation, I think that it is a great service (even though I need to jailbreak my phone to get a client for it - BOOOO at apple!)Anyway, this week Google announced that you can use Google Voice with your pre-existing number,

Office Space - BYOGR....

I think the funny story of the week goes to the Computer Smash. For once whole dollar you can get 30 seconds of computer smashing pleasure. Got a PCLOAD LETTER error that's frustrating you? Is the copier insisting that there is a paperjam where there is clearly no paperjam? Then perhaps this is the event for you!Now if you want a real office space scene re-enactment, you have to bring your own gangster

The future of the Amiga

I can't believe that it's 2009, more than 15 years since the end of Commodore and the beginning of Amiga's limbo, and we are talking about the future of the Amiga.I was reading an article on OSNews the other day on the AmigaOS roadmap. It's pretty cool that Amiga has persevered all this time and alternative/compatible Operating Systems like MorphOS have come out, but I can't help but wonder what sort

Pirate Ikariam

I've been playing with Ikariam (for free) for the past few months and it's a nice freemium game.Recently one of my colleagues showed me this image, probably photoshopped, of Pirate Ikariam.I am close to completing all of my research, I've been expanding my towns, and I'm close to a point where I will be asking "well, what's next?" Perhaps this would make a nice little expansion to the game :-)As a

Only in Amer...Japan?!?!

OK, this is pretty gross!I was reading the register and I saw that Burger King in Japan has made a special burger for the launch of Windows 7.According the register, this burger comes with 7 beef patties (I guess 7 for Windows 7).So the big questions that I have for this cross promotion:1. Can you actually eat this without utensils?2. Can you actually finish it?3. It is meant to give you sustenance
