The people at Sony and Microsoft have to be a little envious of the interactive controls on the Nintendo Wii. The graphics on the Wii aren’t nearly as detailed as that on the PS3 and XBox 360, but just take a look at these videos and tell me it doesn’t look fun as hell: […]


WDDG relaunches. Nice one, guys. *if you’re a web geek, you’ll dig their source code.

JPG Magazine

So thanks to my co-worker Maria, I now have a new site/magazine I’m hooked on – JPG Mag. I appreciate their guidelines for submitting photos too: We’re about mostly unmodified photos. That means we do not accept photos that have been overly Photoshopped. Adjustments to color and sharpness is just fine, of course. Just keep […]

iPods – is everything relative?

Listen, I love my iPod, and I understand that the Cool Factor throws off any logical product price breakdowns, but does anyone ever stop to think about things for second?

Palm CEO Ed Colligan on the news of Apple’s iPhone (found via macnn): “We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone,” he said. “PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.” You may be right Ed, but […]

It’s not war

It’s nothing new, but I always find it amusing when the media creates ‘battles’ where there are none. Within the last week we’ve seen the launch of the Sony Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii. These are both gaming systems so obviously there’s going to be some competition by default, but the reality of the […]

I want ……

Forget the Sony PS3 and the Nintendo Wii… when is Apple going to come out with some new iPod games?


I had a dream this morning that I woke up to 1010 WINS on AM radio and there was a news report that O.J. Simpson had written a book and in it he talked about how he would have killed his wife and her boyfriend if he had done it. The not-funny part is that […]

It’s technical

Dana: “What is that thing you’re doing?” Venkman: “It’s technical. It’s one of our little toys.“ from the Ghostbusters, Listen to audio here.

Does XML Suck? I don’t think so.

I ran across this link in the ‘popular’ section of this morning, Does XML Suck? Prior to having found that article I had just finished a conference call with Google and a client about a project that would utilize Google Earth for an upcoming event. The client wanted to use Google Earth so that […]

8 Intel Cores, 6 Blades a Shaving and Partridge in…

Dell takes on Mac Pro with eight cores – do I hear 10? A Moore’s law for razor blades? – in reference to Gillette’s 5-blade Fusion shaving razor. Things are getting out of control and just multiplying just because they can. But of course our government is restricted to the insufficient 2-party system.
