Application focus under OSX

09/18/08 | by Adam | Categories: Whining, Macintosh
For the most part I've been very happy with OSX compared to its competition. This isn't a long standing Mac fanatic thing: I couldn't stand OS9 and the prior System releases; the Mac only became an acceptable option to me after the "classic" MacOS was… more »

Monolingual strikes again

09/17/08 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
Regular readers of this blog will remember a run in a few months ago with a tool called Monolingual that carefully destroyed a fair number of software installs on my Mac. I thought I'd fixed all of the problems. Not quite; I just found another case.… more »

Radio Adam foobared

09/16/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Macintosh
Yesterday I updated Radio Adam to use the newest iTunes since it had been working appropriately on my other systems. Part of the install requires a reboot of the system which I didn't think much of at the time. When everything came back up, I restarted… more »

Profitability in the wireless telco world (Rogers Edition)

08/30/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
37% net profit. Not bad at all. (Via Michael Geist) (And look at the comments on Geist's site; there's one that can be summed up as "don't blame corporations for being greedy; it's their nature." Problem is that it's meant as exculpation, not… more »

In space, no one wants to hear you burp

08/26/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Carbonated drinks in space are a no-no: One of the items the astronauts might like to have when they are on orbit is soda, or carbonated beverages. Many years back, they decided to fly the soft drink Coca Cola® on the shuttle. First, it had to be… more »

Beaker from the Muppets does all of the parts of Ode to Joy solo. I can't find words to emphasize how good this is. more »

US Customs/DHS have the right to seize laptops at the border

08/01/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Well, it's been an unofficial option for the American customs for a while now but its documented: they can take your laptop, or anything else, for no reason at all, forever, and disclose anything they find to anyone they feel like: That's a remarkably… more »

Well, looks like the music industry is demonstrating once again as to why DRM is a bad idea for pretty much everyone involved. (Via BoingBoing) more »

GPS location and real arrival times for buses

07/28/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology

Reuse versus replacement

07/27/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Link is to an interesting article on the difference between sunk energy values versus sunk economic ones when it comes to buildings. One of the major discussions over environmentally-friendly changes is whether or not the net result is better. In any… more »

Recording and geotagging car accidents

07/26/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Functionally this devices serves a similar purpose to a police car dashmount: it records what's going on around a period of interest. Having been involved in a collision, my first reaction on being hit was "What just happened?" shortly after the world… more »

Wired on Facebook

07/24/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Wired has an article commenting on how Facebook is inappropriate for business. I entirely agree; that's why there's also LinkedIn. Similar concept, similar implementation, totally different attitude. You don't tend to mix personal and business in your… more »
