v6.2.1 - moving along, a point increase at a time

The one that got me...

Hulu "Hu" video shortening service was an April fool's joke that got me.  It showed up before April fool's (maybe it was 4/1 somewhere when I saw it), and my reaction was "NOPE! not going this sh*t! what kind of product is this?"A day later... I realized it was a joke...

Quantum Leap

Recently I finished watching the show Quantum Leap. The show ran from 1989 to 1993, which means that I barely missed it when I returned to the US, and no television channel was showing it in Greece prior to that. However, it was one of those shows that was referenced by the teachers when I was in high school, and by others in general society. This means that I also missed any references made to that

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

Best use if a QR code!

I was watching the Daily Show this past weekend and in one of the episodes from last week Stewart was making fun of CNN and the republican candidate debate; more specifically CNN's use of on-screen QR codes to rake viewers to some CNN website (stats about the candidate ? LOL). In any case Stewart throws up his own barcode which too you to a website with the image bellow. Well played sir! Best. QR code

British Movie

A pretty funny mock-trailer for a British Movie.Someone once said that Americans and the Brits were separated by a common language - it just goes to show you that language isn't the end-all-be-all of national identity :-)

Colbert on the Greek Economy

I saw this the other night when I got home after having seen it on Twitter (via @asteris).Honestly the situation seems like a major clusterfuck. It seems like a classic north south divide and the unfortunate (or just callous use of the PIGS acronym) is making things worse. -- Post From My iPhone

The smell of money

Last weekend I was smelling a few dollar bills in my wallet - I don't know why - but I noticed that they had a bizarre smell. I have not smelled money since I was 12 or something like that. As a kid I was also a big fan of DuckTales...so it was quite funny when this SNL skit came on Moral of the story?Careful of dirty money ;-)

Poking fun at online education

Don't get me wrong, there are institutions out there that are credible (and accredited) institutions of learning that have online branches for students who are far away, or have jobs and can't drop everything to pursue their education. But there are cases of diploma mills that grant MBAs to dogs how is it not easy to poke fun at online institutions? :-) This video is from last week's Saturday Night

Television Tuesday: the Listener

For the past number of weeks I've been watching a new Canadian series called The Listener. Luckily NBC picked it up and it's now available on broadcast and on Hulu. The story reminds me a bit of the pretender - without so much of the chasing to get the main character back into an asylum (or whatever that center was).In any case, the main character is a paramedic with supernatural abilities - namely
