2009, το έτος της ελληνικής τηλεόρασης

Πάει ο παλιός ο χρόνος...Ας γιορτάσουμε παιδιά ...Για κάτσε, το 2009 δεν έφυγε ακόμα . Κοιτάζοντας πίσω στο 2009 βλέπω πως το 2009 ήταν πραγματικά το έτος της νέα ελληνικής τηλεόρασης για μέν. Όχι την κρατικής ΝΕΤ, αλλά προγραμμάτων

Pre-requisite FAIL

The other day I saw that a local community college had sent us a catalogue of courses for the upcoming semester. We decided to flip through it just to see what they are offering, after all you never know what you are going to find.When we get to the computer science area we see the description seen in this screenshot. OK, it's a class where one learns about ISPs, the Internet, online services like

Relationship FAIL (on facebook)

I gotta say, Facebook's relationship's algorithms have failed twice this week. First, earlier this week I was told that Is should send my wife a message on facebook to say "hi" to her...errmmm... OK...I ignored the suggestion given that we speak at home, and on the phone...and via SMS. Facebook really doesn't need to intermediate in this communication.Second, since I obviously ignored the first recommendation

Megaman 10 Trailer

I saw this trailer on Joystiq recently - a trailer of the new Megaman 10 for PSP.When I saw the headline in my RSS reader I jumped for joy! I really wanted to play a new Megaman game (even though I have yet to complete Maveric Hunter X), but seeing the trailer I am less than enthusiastic. I guess it will depend on the price. While I do enjoy the retro look of this megaman game, I have to say that

My Newton beats your iPhone!

While I was focusing my free time on my studies these past couple of weeks, CNET found an opportunity to do another death match between two devices, this time the Apple Newton 2100 (the top of the line Newton, and the one that I happen to have), versus the iPhone 3GS (also a device that I have and use daily). The winner, according to CNET is the Newton. While I agree that the Newton is a great device,
