Αντίο 2011!

Να 'μαστε λοιπόν, άλλος ένας χρόνος σχεδόν στο τέλος, τι καταλάβαμε λοιπόν; Βασικά, αρκετά πράγματα, αλλά δεν είναι τώρα καιρός για φλυαρίες :-)  Αυτή η χρονιά που μας πέρασε ήταν αρκετά ενδιαφέρουσα.  Με το που μπήκε έμαθα

Priest, the movie: it was...OK

I took the opportunity this week to watch Priest, a movie that I had anticipated but never watched in the theaters. I've read most of the manga (save the last book) and I can say that the movie is not faithful to the manga (despite not remembering much of the story, I could remember that much!).  The movie did stand on its own (at least as an action film), and the character of Black Hat (Carl

Fable III done...a bit anti-climactic...

This past weekend I finished off Fable III.  All things considered it was an interesting button smashing game, but the ending was a but anti-climactic.  I ended up being able to save the kingdom, but there were a lot of casualties because I decided to keep most of my promises and I ended up coming up on the side of Good. If anything in this game, you learn that you cannot please everyone

tapose - Metro tablet on the iPad

Microsoft may have killed its double screen tablet before it even got off the ground, but some enterprising folks have brought the concept to the iPad.  This is pretty interesting. It reminds me a lot of the concept of smart object/plug-in architecture that they were going to do in the original MacOS 8 (copland) but the project was eventually a failure.

CIA: Operation Ajax - interesting comic book!

This is a pretty interesting comic book (based on real events).  This is so nicely done that others need to pay attention to it!  It really showcases what you can do when you really utilize the medium you have to work with and break out of existing constraints (that are not necessarily your current medium's constraint)CIA : Operation Ajax for the iPad from Cognito Comics on Vimeo.

Think of the children!!!

Yesterday I decided to play a bit of Fable III so I can move the story along. I had gotten to the revolution part where I depose my evil older brother Logan...but I guess the joke was on me since Theresa (the spirit that came to my character and said I'd be a hero) had also advised him that the great darkness is coming to Albion. He could have been a benevolent rules but had a greater chance of being

Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol... Can't wait!

I can't wait for this weekend, Mission Impossible in IMAX goodness!  OK. It is quite possible that this film may suck big time but I am a big fan of the series.  I used to watch the television version with Theo Penglis when I was in Greece and I have seen the other 3 previous films a few times. Back in high school my computer science 101 final project was to program the interface seen at

Thoughts on the new xbox interface

When I came home yesterday I fired up my xbox 360 to get the new OS update that gives me the Metro style UI. In the grand scheme of things I do like it. I think it's high time that Microsoft looked at its product offerings and designed some consistency (or at least a common theme) across its services. The desktop and Window metaphor is getting a bit stale - it's still useful, but not in all contexts
