Olympics...m'eh...

When I was a kid, every two years (once for the winter Olympics and once for the summer Olympics) my grandfather would drive us to Ancient Olympia, about 30 or so minutes from where we lived, to witness the lighting of torch ceremony. I didn't realize it at the time, but it was a rather huge privilege to be able to witness this so often, and to be able to visit these archeological sites with th frequency

Άλλο περίεργο και αυτό!Αυτη την εβδομάδα είχα βγει για βραδινό στην "μικρή Ιταλία" της Βοστονης με κάτι συναδέλφους από το συνέδριο. Δεν πάω πολλές φορες στην περιοχή οπότε δεν την ξέρω και πολυ καλα. Ολα τα εστιατόρια, τουλάχιστον

L.A. Noire | Done!

Man, that was a lengthy game! I guess any open world game, such as L.A. Noire,  is bound to be lengthy since you have the ability to explore the world at your own leisure. This game was getting a lot of 5-star ratings, which is why I decided to play it (the star studded cast was also another major motivator).  Having played and finished the game I think that it is indeed a 5-star game! (now,

Adieu Spool

Well, that was a bit short lived! Just last week I was pondering how much longer Instapaper will be a paid app given that apps and services, among them Spool, we're available for free. Well, spool is now gone into the graveyard of Web 2.0 apps and services. The nice thing about spool was that you could save multimedia for late viewing, not just text. I hope other services jump on the multimedia time

Podcast app στο iOS: Nice try, try again

Την περασμένη εβδομάδα πήρα χαμπάρι πως η Apple κυκλοφόρησε μια δική της εφαρμογή για podcatching και για να ακούς podcast.  Ένα από τα  κύρια θέματα με το iOS για 'μένα είναι πως από την αρχή έπρεπε να συνδέσεις την συσκευή στο iTunes

Ο θάνατος του Social Bookmarking;

Αυτό το περασμένο σαββατοκύριακο, εκεί που καθάριζα τις πεθαμένες πια web 2.0 υπηρεσίες από τα bookmarks μου άρχισα να σκέφτομαι περί του delicious και του diigo, αλλά και άλλον υπηρεσιών bookmarking  και social bookmarking, και το αν είναι ακόμα χρήσιμες

What's the reason to buy Instapaper?

I was browsing the AppStore the other day and I saw that Instapaper was cheaper than its normal priceMaybe if this were the original price I would have gone for Instapaper over ReadItLater ;-). In any case, I was in a temptation to buy it!  After all, Instapaper was my original "save for later reading" application on iOS, and I only changed to ReaditLater (now Pocket) because there was no free

Adieu, Mediafly onair

My weekend Web 2.0 cleanup yielded another service that apparently went belly up over the past six months. Mediafly still exists, but they are focusing their work on the Enterprise and not on the consumer. I wonder if they will go the way of Britekite due to this restructuring.In any case, mediafly onair was a way to subscribe to your favorite podcasts using a web interface and then access that list
