Link is to a video that superimposes the World of Warcraft dance routines over the source material. (Via Nodwick) more »

Palm Foleo

05/30/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
I'm not quite sure what to make of this one. It's basically an ultralight portable with Treo connectivity running a Linux OS and solid-state storage. Guess I'll keep an eye on the discussion forums to see if someone comes up with a convincing use for… more »

Fun with Bluetooth audio

05/29/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
While the concept of Bluetooth is great, I have to say that frequently the implementation of it is pretty poor. Perhaps it comes down to a misunderstanding on my part, but for something that's supposed to be simple it's sure not reliable or easy to get… more »

Mix tapes

05/23/07 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Copyright
Alas, what with all those copyright and intellectual property issues these days, the mix "tape" is basically dead. That's too bad -- I always thought it was a great way of introducing friends to a selection of music. Get those tunes wandering through… more »

Colour blindness simulator for OSX

05/22/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
This is an interesting one. "Sim Daltonism" is a simulator that tries to show how people who are colour blind see the world. The concept is relatively simple: a small window contains a colour-corrected version of whatever the mouse pointer is over that… more »

Bye, Spots

05/20/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Since 1995 I've been using a Calgary ISP called Spots Interconnect. For the first few years, I used them exclusively for dialup access and webpage hosting. They set up an ISDN connection for a trade show I arranged and gave us free access to it; it was… more »

The Police's "Synchronicity"

05/20/07 | by Adam | Categories: Music
Presumably as part of the upcoming tour, all of the albums by the Police have gone on sale in their remastered form, and quite cheaply too -- about $5 a disc. I've taken the opportunity to upgrade the couple I already had and fill in the holes. As I… more »

First Apple, now Amazon

05/17/07 | by Adam | Categories: Copyright
The first chink in the DRM wall was when Apple's iTunes store started selling EMI's music in a non-DRM'd format (albeit at a markup.) Now Amazon is joining the fray selling the same catalogue. This is good and I hope other music distributors and… more »

Travelling with gadgets

05/08/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Periodically I'm sent on business trips to miscellaneous locales, some far flung, some a little more domestic. As such I'm frequently looking for ways of meeting my gadget-mania. This is what's I've chosen at the moment: more »

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
