Still Sharing Items in Google Reader - Here's how

I was debating whether to write this in English or in Greek, considering that the original idea came to me in Greek after having listened to WeekendGeeks, but maybe in English more people will have a useful application for it.It seems like I am not the only one that really dislikes Google's change in Google Reader.  Sure, it's old news by now, but that still doesn't mean that we have to like it.

Adieu, Posterous

I guess this is the official end of Posterous. I got the following in my inbox the other day and it confirmed what the twittersphere and blogosphere had been going on about in the last few weeks.The irony is that I had Posterous and used it as a twitter backup (using ping.fm to cross post).  With over 11,000 tweets, I wonder how I can access my old stuff when companies keep folding or getting

AT&T Nasty gram

Well, silly me for thinking that I was still in the "no strings attached unlimited internet" that I thought I was grandfathered in. I got this nice little text message from AT&T the other day telling me that I would be throttled...OK, so I did use Waze GPS navigation extensively during the week of NERCOMP...and I did use Pandora and iTunes streaming...heck, I also streamed an episode of Star Trek:

Adieu Knol and Ovi Share

Well, two more have bitten the dust! Google's Wikipedia competitor, Knol, is shutting its doors, and Ovi Share (I guess the successor to MOSH?) is doing the same.  Ovi Share came out when I had my iPhone, so I really ended up not using it that much.  For what it's worth, I think that Nokia should have partnered up with Flickr and YouTube for people to do their sharing, but anyway - adieu

Would you like a Latte with your Occupy?

Free Lodging?Perhaps voting Republican on Super Tuesday has rubbed off on me giving me a "get off my lawn" attitude, or perhaps it's the ineffectiveness of Occupy UMass Boston that's just getting to me.  Don't get me wrong, I support affordable education for everyone, especially at State Schools like UMass Boston, and I support affordable textbooks and an equal opportunity for everyone - but it

Assassin's Creed Revelations | done

This past weekend I finished Assassin's Creed Revalations (with 69% synchronization), and as was expected, it ended in a cliffhanger... #facepalm. I know that the series is episodic, and I really didn't expect to see Desmond really do something much in today's world...and yes the game revealed a lot about Altaïr and Ezio, and the Assassins...and Desmond's past; but I am left wanting more of this

Cost of video games

  Last week seemed to be the week of the PS Vita as it was discussed on pretty much every single podcast I listen to (and some I don't listen to!) The main thing that the tech people discussed was not the capability of the device (because it seems to be quite capable) but rather the relevancy of the device. In a world were iPhones, iPads and Android devices (and now Microsoft with Windows Phone

Welcome to iOS5

  Well, since MobileMe is inching closer and closer to its inevitable death, I decided today to update my iPhone 3GS to iOS5, and move my data to iCloud. I attempted at jailbreaking my iPhone, but since it was jailbroken the update process eluded me in the short time frame that I had to update, so I decided to just go with stock iOS. My iPad hasn't been jailbroken, and iOS5 is not bad on it,
