Automator for iOS
No, no, Automator does not exist for iOS yet - but it would be a nice feature! I was thinking about this the other day. My iPod Touch has WiFi, and I use it as an alarm of sorts. Since I keep the WiFi off, I don't have up to date information on weather, news, and RSS when I get up - a dashboard for the morning for example. Of course I can use my iPhone (which is what I do) to get
Assassin's Creed Lineage
The things you miss when you're not paying attention ;-)Here is a short movie (30 minutes) that gives you the back story of the Auditore family (in Assassin's Creed II) that Ezio has to take care of. Interesting story (live action!), using the same actors as the game (or so it seems to me). Now a few things that seem obvious after you've played the game (like who the main bad guy is) would
The truth about the recession
...by David MitchellThis has been lingering in my inbox since last December (wow!) - I finally saw it and it's funny! It's just a bunch of numbers on a computer screen - just type them back in!LOL :-)
Assassin's Creed II thoughts
Last weekend I finished off Assassin's Creed II. I had completed most of the game, I just needed to go to Rome and take care of business there before the official end of the game. I liked the ending of the game, but I found the final boss (Borgia) a bit easy when you compare him to Al Mualim from the original Assassin's Creed. I was also surprised that Ezio did not take care of Borgia to begin with,
End of the iPad experiment
OK, so the two week loan of the iPad has come to an end. What have we learned? Quite a lot actually! I think the phrase that sums it up is this: "it's a nice device to mess around with, but not nice enough to buy because you can't easily produce on it"Now of course your milage may vary but this is what I found:First of all the lack of a Greek keyboard was really inconvenient. Also not being able
The bull fights back!
Amazing footage from Spain - this was one awesome bull!
Social Network Parodies
A couple of parody trailers (parodies of the Social Network movie coming out soon) have hit the interwebs:Twitter:YouTube:
This should become a sitcom!
There are some commercials that have become sitcoms in the past, the Geico cavemen come to mind. That was a nice, albeit short-lived sitcome. Watching shows on Hulu I've been served up this ad (as well as other ads in the same series). The idea is that a bunch of experienced men (in a retirement community?) guide the younger of the clan along their life paths. I don't know why, but this commercial
Mixed thoughts on the 4-hour workweek
A long while ago I got a promotional copy of the 4-hour work week by Tim Ferriss on Audible. Now that I have the audible app on my iPhone I had rediscovered that I had purchased (for nothing) this book and I thought I would give it a try. My first encounter with this book was through a classmate's wall on Facebook - he had written a rave review of the book. Personally, back then,
IPad: the mid point review
So, it's the mid point in my time that I have the iPad on loan from the department. Initial thoughts are a bit mixed. I have to say that the large screen makes for some pretty nice couch browsing while watching TV. The keyboard isn't that horrible to use (it's no physical keyboard but it works). I can't really tell if I am fasted on the iPad or on the iPhone in terms of typing.One of the major issues
