Family Guy + Windows 7 = Very Funny!

I was browsing my RSS feeds over the long thanksgiving weekend and I came across some Windows 7-Family Guy crossovers. They were quite funny! Have a look (if you haven't already seen them that is)

Διάβασμα - Διάβασμα!

Η μέρα μετά την ημέρα των ευχαριστιών και εγώ διαβάζω. Το τρίμηνο κοντεύει να τελειώσει, και αυτό σημαίνει πως πρέπει να τελειώσω και εγώ τις εργασίες μου. Όλα τα έχω ξεκαθαρίσει εκτός από δύο εργασίες. Η πρώτη είναι μια

What happened to Second Life?

I saw on article on the BBC the other day and I was surprised at people being surprised at Second Life because it seems like such a "d'uh" type of thing to anyone who's ever used Second Life!The problem with Second Life, as I've written (or probably just said) countless times are:Crazy requirements for your computer. Nothing is going to take off if the requirements for use are insane!Graphics stink

Against non-latin domain names

Well, this past week Egypt launched the .masr domain name, but it's not just masr (Egypt in arabic), it's .مصر (masr in arabic script). Now many proponents or unicode domains would probably say that it democratizes the internet, making it less of an English centric place, however I really don't see it that way. Now luckily I can type in a couple of different scripts so something like .εργασία

Weird Al Explains Autotune

What do you do when you're not feeling all that great? You watch television! (or sleep) Well, in the age of the internet, we've also got silly little videos on YouTube. I can't remember where I came across this video, but I did indeed see it, and I had a good chuckle with it. What do they say? Laughter is the best medicine? I hope this works ;-)

Careful who you email...

Well, happy Friday to you all!Here's a news story from Inside Higher Ed. Long story short - two Cornell University employees are having an affair with each other and send each other naughty emails. They are both married to other people. Well, one of those emails got sent to the universal directory - everyone in the university! Man, that's got to be embarrassing! I mean people feel sheepish when they

24 - Season 8 Trailer

I was kinda wondering what the heck writers had in store for poor ol' Jack Bauer. I mean after 7 seasons, some very hellish days, probably a year or so of torture at the hands of the Chinese, some crazy stuff happening over in Africa...how much more can this man endure?Luckily it turns out that Jack is retired...but he's still dragged (kicking and screaming?) into saving the world. I look forward

Matrix - Chaplin style

Speaking of the Matrix, I came across this video through Pestaola.gr a week or two ago. I don't know if this is an actual Charle Chaplin film, or if it's been made to look like one - but it's a retro reimagining of the Matrix. How would the matrix have looked like if it was shot during the era of the silent film? Well have a look :-) (very entertaining if you are into silent cinema)

N900 ad - and the matrix

A week (or two?) ago Engadget had a new ad for the Nokia N900, and they had a light tongue and cheek comment about the ad hinting toward mental illness. I had a different take on the ad. The whole aesthetic of the ad reminds me of the original matrix (crossed perhaps with the Australian show the hollowmen). I expected agent Smith to make the focus group participants lose their mouth of something
