Disappearing footprints, part deux
I was having some more thougts on the issue of archiving our digital lives. This line of thought reminds me of Palm's new ad for the Pre that mentions that "your life is made up of so many other lives".In years past, people snapped candid photos of you in group and private occasions. Those photos may have been shared, or they may have been kept private and you would have been none the wiser. Today
Digital footprints being washed away...
I was reading this article on our digital (and online) lives slowly leaking away on Robert Scoble's blog. In essence the blog post is about our digital footprints being washed away. In years past we had letters, postcards and photographs to document our journey through life and all things important to us.For example, I've written a number of times about the letters that I have from good friends,
Nokia Braille Reader
Nokia Beta Labs has some pretty nifty things brewing (and sometimes they kill some of their most nifty things even though they are great - see Sports Tracker for example).Their newest software is called Braille Reader which apparently runs in the background and processes SMS messages for bind users of S60 phones. It seems pretty innovative as it uses haptic feedback on touch screens to convert roman
Damn, these broadcasters keep taking away shows that I watch leaving television to be a barren wasteland of reality shows and desperate ____________ (fill in the blank with your favorite type of desperate).The latest shows to get the axe are both on ABC.

I hate people!
Well, actually I don't but that is the title of a book that I read recently that was quite a page turner. I first saw this book (I hate people) advertised somewhere online, I can't remember where, but the graphic did catch my eye. It shows a stick figure kicking over a water cooler. The saying does that you should not judge a book by its cover, but in this case the cover was a good indication of
The Moto DEXT/CLIQ
Well, I've had a whole weekend to go through Motorola CLIQ related blogs and see what I (really) think about it.When I first saw coverage of the device (was it through Engadget? I don't remember), I was really excited, and much to my surpise I still am! I was never a big fan of motorola phones.

Τώρα τελευταία παρατήρησα το gmail μου και είδα πως χρησιμοποιώ μόνο 244ΜΒ από το ποσοστό που μου δίνει το gmail. Πραγματικά μου έκανε εντύπωση το πόσο λίγο από το μερίδιό μου χρησιμοποιώ - μόνο 3%.Να πω πως το gmail το έχω μόνο ένα
A few years back I had gone to an academic symposium on Tablet PCs of all things.One of the marketing professors had this ad as an example of something he used in his class. I remember that he said that this ad was so popular that the ad firm decided to pull the video off the internet and start asking for hefty royalties to use it.Recently I found it on youtube and it brought back memories of superbowls
Mac vs. PC vs. Linux
I was browsing the interwebs last week to find some Mac v. PC v. Linux clips that I had seen a while back and ran into this one.Pretty funny, if you ask me :-)
