How Time Flies

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Random, Technology | Posted on 21-04-2010

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted. I guess that’s what happens when not a lot out of the ordinary happens (or perhaps when you find yourself playing a certain PC game a little bit more than you should do…)

Google Chrome OS Source Code Released

“…and slowly, and surely, they drew their plans against us.”

It always seems like I blog on a Friday. Maybe that’s because people are winding down for the week and preparing for the work they’ll have to do come Monday, or maybe everyone’s just excited about the weekend. I know I am, but not for any particular reason.

An Easy Day

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 21-10-2009

At least, I hope it’ll be easy. The Big Cheese here at the office has decided to take a sick day, so I’m free to work at my own pace. Having said that, I’ve decided that Google Wave is pretty darned good.

Google Wave

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 19-10-2009

“Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!”

Got myself a Google Wave invite this morning. I have to admit, aside from the info you see posted all over the net, I know very little about it. I know that around 600,000 people have been invited to the preview so far, that it’s constantly a trending topic on Twitter, and that it’s basically a type of real-time collaboration software that includes email, IM and other bits and pieces.

What A Day!

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

Hmm, this year seems to be the year for celebrity deaths it seems. If you haven’t heard already, Patrick Swayze (of Dirty Dancing fame) died today of pancreatic cancer. I can’t say I was a big fan of his films, but at 57, it wasn’t exactly his time to go. Rest in peace.

Gmail Always Using HTTPS?

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 25-08-2009

Last night/this morning I went to access my Gmail emails via my iGoogle widget, and was kindly informed that the emails couldn’t be displayed because HTTPS was enabled in Gmail, and the iGoogle widget couldn’t function unless HTTPS was turned off. Five seconds later, however, they magically appeared in the widget.

Calm Before The Storm

Posted by | Posted in Personal Shizzle, Society, Technology | Posted on 07-07-2009

Well, today is Jacko’s memorial service, and even though 17,500 tickets were randomly given out to fans who requested tickets in their millions, I wouldn’t be surprised if many thousands more flood the streets of LA today in the hopes of paying a tribute to their idol.

Quick Tech Fix

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 03-04-2009

Just a quick blog post today. This week I came across some interesting news (and rumours) about Google. The first is the announcement of Google Ventures, and the second is a rumour that Google is in talks with Twitter to negotiate an aquisition deal.

Conficker Worm Gets The Joke

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff | Posted on 01-04-2009

“We’ll deliver the internet straight to your toilet!”

April Fools! Although there isn’t a lot to be laughing about if reports of the Conficker worm are to be believed.

All About The Tech (Part Deux)

Posted by | Posted in Geek Stuff, Technology | Posted on 18-02-2009

“The first law of robotics is: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. The second law of robotics is… we do not talk about Fight Club.”

There’s a lot going on in the tech world at the moment, it seems. Yesterday saw the release of (and abundance of news stories about) Windows Mobile 6.5. Windows Mobile is the OS used in a lot of PDAs and handheld data device, and even some phones. Asides from my PDA at work, which I never seem to have for more than 5 minutes before someone robs it, is the only experience of Windows Mobile I’ve had. It seems fairly good as Windows goes, so I’ve got no complaints. I’ve also got no news, opinions, or cares about it either.
