Αρχίσαμε ξανά με τα μαθήματα!

Αυτή την περασμένη εβδομάδα αρχίσανε τα μαθήματα ξανά. Αυτό είναι το προτελευταίο μου τρίμηνο ως φοιτητής σε πρόγραμμα Μάστερ. Τον Μαι τελειώνω το τρίτο μου Μάστερ, και τον Δεκέμβρη τελειώνω το τέταρτο (και τελευταίο) μου

iPad - name FAIL

The name iPad is a bit of a failure on more level than one!Sure, if you are talking about a Pad you are thinking of a Pad of Paper and a pen to go with it, right? No stylus (as I've harped on and on again over the last 3 blog post) means that this metaphor is slightly out. As the internet reminds us, MadTV has made a parody apple product called the iPad (in Greek it would be the ιΣερβιέττα

iPhone 4.0 Missing in Action

Looking at the iPad announcement I can't help but wonder where the heck is Mobile OS X 4.0 (aka iPhoneOS, iPodTouch OS, iPad OS). I can't help but to also compare it to the Knowledge Navigator concept video that was produced by Apple in the late 80s (or was it early 90s?)Looking at the iPad screen, I can see a large screen that can do wonders with handwriting, like the Newton or a piece of paper (I

iPad 1.0 - FAILish

I have to say that I was thoroughly unimpressed by today's iPad event. Don't get me wrong I disliked iPod 1.0 (didn't buy one until the 3rd generation iPod), and I disliked the first iPhone (didn't buy one until the 3GS). If history is any indication I will probably like iPad 3.0 (either that or I won't care as much). So here's a rundown:The Pros:Nice iCal App - I gotta say, I am a sucker for design

Television Blue Screen of Death!

OK! I will admit it! HD Television has spoiled me! Last night, those of you who follow me on twitter, would have seen my frustration as my cable provider (Comcast) and how none of the HD channels were working! No CBS, no NBC, no ABC and worst of all NO FOX! I was so prepped to watch 24 in widescreen HD glory (like I've done for the past season, or two) but when I switched inputs from computer to

Maemo or Android? Why Choose?

In today's interesting-find-pile we have a Nokia N900 (A maemo device) dual booting into Android. It's just a stock android ROM, no extrast like Sense UI or Moto BLUR, but I am sure the ROM cooking community will have all those available for download and installation.I am wondering if Symbian S60 were ported to the N900, would you want to do a triboot? Depending on the day you could have Symbian,

Καλός το gowalla

Με το που είπα στο καλό στο foursquare είδα πως όχι μόνο υπήρχαν και άλλες εφαρμογές του τύπου αυτού αλλά είδα πως και εφαρμογές που δεν είχαν αυτή την δυνατότητα αρχικά (την δυνατότητα check in) άρχησαν να την προσθέτουν. Μια τέτοια

If you can read this....

...then it's probably not all Greek to you ;-)Well, here's a funny story about someone trying a little too hard (I guess). At St. John's College (New Mexico, US) proud of its emphasis on the classics, they printed a T-shirt last year that in Attic Greek that said: "If you can read this, you're overeducated." Well, that was the intent! They actually made mistakes on the accent and breathing marks.

Down Memory Lane - Enhanced Books

I was reading this blog post recently on Enhanced eBooks on idealog. Part of the blog post was familiar, having lived through the technology-days of the early 90s, and part was brand spanking new to me. For example I did not know of Expanded Books. I was surprised that these expanded books worked on HyperCard because as a Mac owner (in 1994...or was it 1995?) I had not seen any of these expanded

Avatar - Atari 2600 Version

I guess this is a jab at some horrendous video game adaptations of movies (looking at you ET!, and others). I found this via Boing Boing today - a retro look at what a (crappy) rendition of Avatar would look like, in video game form, for the 2600. It's easier to make fun of bad games for the NES and pre-NES era, that still amuses us. Bad games for the playstation and beyond era don't even muster
