v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Δέκα χρόνια πριν: Χαιρέτα τους όταν έχεις την ευκαιρία

Άλλο ένα δημοσίευμα για χαμένους φίλους.Όταν ήμουν στο δημοτικό και στο γυμνάσιο είχα μια παρέα παιδιών με τα οποία πηγαίναμε μαζί στο σχολείο από το χωριό στην «πόλη» με το λεωφορείο. Όταν μετακόμισα στην Αμερική με μερικούς

The Internet Tablet as an iPod replacement

My second attempt to use what I have as an iPod replacement is my Nokia N800. On the surface it kind of looks like an iPod touch, so it should work, no? Well, yes and no. Compared to my N80 and the PSP the N800 requires the least amount of investment. It came with 4GB worth of SD memory, and I had 2GB from my now defunct HTC Blue Angel, so I have a total of 6GB to play with. It has been a bumpy road,

Why the UIQ failed to meet expectations

I read this article last week posted on the UIQ blog, and it was titled "Why UIQ failed to meet the expectations". I caution those that want to read this article: it is horribly written! Nevertheless it does provide some insight as to why the UIQ never became popular.The article talks mostly about software, and I think that software is quite a valid reason for the failure to meet expectations. Lack

Nokia Internet Tablet - is there anything it can't do?

I was recently in the public transport system, and I pulled out my internet tablet, fired up the GarnetVM (PalmOS virtual machine), and looked up the times of the upcoming trains to get back home. At this point I recalled that someone had been able to get a developer's build of Android to run on Maemo and I started pondering: is there anything this device can't do?The folks over at OpenEinstein are

Video Game Friday: Aladdin for the Game Gear

Back when I had a game gear, I bought Aladdin for it. I had played the Genesis version of the game and liked it, and it was quite challenging! I headed to a toys R us store a few weeks later (after I had saved up enough money) to get the game gear version. Mistake!While the graphics were nice for the device, and the game play did not disappoint, the game was too easy! Quite literally I was at the final

The N80 as an iPod replacement

When my iPod bit the dust, I immediately wanted to get another one (more on that in a later post), but for the time being I wanted to use what I had in order to get on my day to day business. There are three options: My PSP, my N80 or my N800 Internet Tablet (NIT).I don't have that much external memory for my PSP, so unless I wanted to invest in memory stick DUOs, I am a bit out of luck. Also, the

And you thought GSM was bad...

I've been looking at phones lately (no thanks to the iPhone!) and I must say that I am seeing some absurdities with the selection of bands. GSM had five bands (frequencies), although only four are used. THe original band was 900Mhz, then 1800Mhz rolled out in Europe, 1900Mhz and 850Mhz followed suit in the Americas and 450Mhz was tested but never deployed. This was a 2G technologyNow we've got 3G

Television Tuesday: American Gothic.

Yet another Hulu discovery: American Gothic.I have to say that this series was weird, X-files weird (or possibly the outer limits weird)! I thought that since Gary Cole (Lumberg from Office Space) was in it, that it would be rather comical. I was wrong. The story revolves around a small town in the south that has a lot of inexplicable phenomena happening. If you make a deal with the Sheriff, your life

Leveraging my strategic assets for a synergistic paradigm shift

I was looking at various people on LinkedIn a few weeks back to see if there are any acquaintances on there, and I came across an individual who had this in their blurb about themselves (changed mildly to protect the innocent):“PMP certified IT Project Manager with over fifteen years of experience with the ability to leverage her proven record of strategic leadership in solving complex business
