Floppy drive w/ legs!
Well, this is retro!A floppy drive that grows some legs to avoid spilling liquids (that invade from the bottom - top invading liquids are still a problem) ;-)I haven't used a floppy disk or a floppy drive in close to 10 years now so I took this to be more of an art installation rather than something of actual use :-)Floppy Legs Portable Hard Drive from James Chambers on Vimeo.
Πάμε στο μουσείο!
Αυτό το περασμένο σαββατοκύριακο είπαμε να πάμε στο τοπικό μας μουσείο να δούμε επιτέλους την έκθεση τέχνης των Μάγια. Στο τσακ το προλάβαμε γιατί αυτό το σαββατοκύριακο ήταν το τελευταίο σαββατοκύριακο το οποίο ήταν στημένη
Movie (procrastination) weekend
I love summer! I can actually kick back on the weekend, without any homework and just enjoy the weather (or a movie). This past weekend was a movie weekend (to the detriment of house chores - oh well!) In any case, here is a brief overview:GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra: this wasn't a bad movie - I was expecting it to be far worse than it actually was.

The Social Network movie

Περί ποδηλάτων και κλειδαριών
Πρόσφατα η σύζυγος αγόρασε ένα καινούργιο ποδήλατο και μ’ έχει βάλει σε σκέψεις να αγοράσω και εγώ ένα. Από τότε που τελείωσα το λύκειο (12 χρόνια!) δεν έχω ποδήλατο. Το θέμα δεν είναι αυτό όμως. Αυτό που μου έκανε εντύπωση
The IT Crowd game
A friend of mine emailed me a link to this game based on the hit UK series the IT Crowd.The game was pretty entertaining, but I think I wouldn't sit at my computer to play a browser game like this (who's got time?) I echo some of the responses left as comments: Do make an iPhone game out of this! :-)If you don't know what IT crowd is, catch up with it here: Seasons 1 through 3 (and Season 4 is
Blackberry 6 going after the consumer
I saw this video the other day of the BlackBerry OS version 6 on the net. The two things that stroke me were (1) the non-enterprise-ness of the features shown off, and (2) the complete reliance on touch-screens.
