Instant Message - ακόμα δημοφιλές;
Έχουν περάσει πάνω από δέκα χρόνια από τότε που άρχισα να χρησιμοποιώ το ίντερνετ. Πρίν περίπου δέκα χρόνια μπήκα και στον κόσμο του instant message με το ICQ, το Yahoo Messenger, το MSN Messenger κτλ. Όταν έμπαινα συχνά στο Yahoo Chat, και συγκεκριμένα

Ο θάνατος της καλλιγραφίας
Αυτή την περασμένη εβδομάδα είδα ένα άρθρο στο slashdot περί τις καλλιγραφίας και πως πολλά άτομα από την γενιά μου, και μικρότεροι μου, δεν ξέρουν πως να γράφουν καλλιγραφικά - cursive όπως λέγετε στα αγγλικά.Όπως λέει το άρθρο,
Ευτυχός που έφυγε!
Αυτή την περασμένη εβδομάδα είδα αυτό το άρθρο στο cocktail news.Σύμφωνα με τους ερευνητές, η κακή συμπεριφορά του αφεντικού προκαλεί άγχος στους εργαζόμενους, γεγονός που συχνά οδηγεί στην υιοθέτηση συνηθειών που βλάπτουν την

Well, another one bites the dust!Newsgator online, a competitor to Google's RSS reader, has been discontinued. I did use the service on and off when I was a NetNewsWire user. Truth be told, I really liked NetNewsWire as a desktop RSS reader, but it was always a pain in the butt to use an offline reader, and then go to another computer and see the same stories in my google reader. It's true that
Nokia is killing off Sports Tracker
I was reading the symbian guru the other day and I was saddened to see that Nokia is discontinuing support for Sport Tracker. This was such a great application, and quite innovative if I do say so myself!I had sports tracker installed on my Nokia N80 and I used a separate bluetooth GPS unit (that added to my bulk) to track walks, hikes and then to get data from those excursions. It was great to plot
It's the data, stupid!
If you've read the Greek post I had on here a week or so ago you know that I got an iPhone recently to replace my broken Nokia N80. I thought long and hard about what phone would be good for me, both in terms of usage and in terms of philosophy. Yes, financial were part of the decision making process as well.Right off the bat I ruled out the Blackberry. I had one for a number of months and it wasn't
It just won't die!

The BBC had an interesting "in pictures" story the other day about appliances that just won't quit working.My personal favorite was a 1936 domed bakelite radio that still works like a charm. Yes there are other pieces of tech that work even after years of abuse, but that radio just looks cool!I just wish that some of my appliances would just keep working like my MessagePad 2100:-)Yes sure it does't
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Grumble, grumble....I've written about my disappointment that fox cancelled the Terminator series a while back while keeping Dollhouse on the roster. Dollhouse would not have been kept on if it weren't a Josh Weedon series. Anyway - I digress.I know that the season (and the series) of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles ended with John and Weaver being transported into the future and Sarah and
Newton | Upgraded
Well, it seems like the Y2K10 bug on the newton has been squished for all Newton models with OS 2.1.This is not a new development, it's been out for a little while now, but I really did not have the motivation to pull out my MessagePad 2100 to test it out. Then two things happened which really motivated me to just get it done. First I saw the announcement that the Y2K10 bug is officially no more on
