Why the Apple G4 Cube failed: cats!

02/21/08 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, Macintosh
Too bad he de-emphasized it as the reason in favour of cabling, but blogger bbum felt that one of the principal failings of Apple's G4 Cube was that of: having a flat topped, conveniently sized, surface on top of which things will be placed, will fall,… more »

Terrible box art for graphics card and motherboards

02/20/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
Anyone who has been into a computer components store in the last five years has seen these monstrosities: poorly rendered or airbrushed genre art (typically fantasy or science-fiction) placed prominently on a cardboard box that has nothing more… more »

Starbucks quick-ordering system mockup for iPhone

I have a sneaking suspicion I know at least one person who would buy an iPhone specifically for this app were it ever realised... (Via Engagdget) more »

UPnP isn't all really that universal

02/17/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Recently I got my hands on a Freecom MusicPal, a rather cool little internet-radio aware alarm clock. I'll probably get around to writing a review once I've had it running for a few weeks and worked through its idiosyncracies. more »

Funny post about the problems of scheduling a family life around World Of Warcraft. (Via Kottke) more »

17.4 kHz

02/13/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Over on his Facebook page, Ritchie made an offhand comment about still being able to hear 17.4 kHz. My first response was "huh?" The second response was a little smarter, involved Google and thus resulted in the link above. So, now I know the word… more »

Mounting Windows fileshares under OSX

02/12/08 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
I suspect this is old hat to most but the link is to a how-to on mounting remote Windows file systems under OSX. Leopard (Tiger too) does a decent job of allowing you to locate via the Finder machines on local subnets and workgroups. However it never… more »

They know their market

02/11/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
PocketGear just sent out an email advertising one of their regular promotions. It was (as one might expect for this week) Valentine's Day themed. The kicker was in the title of the email: Subject: Spending Valentine's Day Alone? Try Astraware… more »

Autonomous lawn mower

02/09/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
I liked the idea of the Roomba enough to buy one. I love the idea of a lawn mower that works the same way too, but for $2500? That just hurts. (Via Engadget) more »

"Look Around You" on the brain

02/04/08 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
This is perhaps the best send-up I've seen of the Open University type programs that seemed to dominate BBC 2 during the day throughout the 70's and 80's. Of course, if you didn't grow up in the UK during that period, this is going to be nigh on… more »

I'm clearly getting older...

02/02/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Potpourri
I must be growing old; I went to a Fry's Electronics store to pick up a set of $30 speakers* and walked out with pretty much nothing else. It wasn't too long ago that doing that would have resulted in a very large credit card bill... (Ok, I did pick up… more »

The Five "Why's"

02/01/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Joel Spolsky on how using the toddler's incessant cry of "why" can help improve performance. It's valid for software development and maintenance as well as (in his illustrated case) uptime and process. He actually cites Sakichi Toyoda as the source of… more »

On hotel rooms...

01/29/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, even in new hotels, do they manage to find television sets without any component, svideo or composite inputs? Coax inputs are so last century. And I'd really like to use my computer to play movies on the bigger screen that's paid for as part of… 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.
