Plugless ZEV

06/01/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
Unless the designer is using significantly different battery technology, this design for a plugless zero emissions vehicle isn't terribly clever (pace Engadget's headline); anything the size of the batteries in the picture is going to be horrifically… more »

05/31/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Games
A discussion similar to the one linked to over a Gizmodo came up the other day while at a gaming session with some friends. After spending thousands of dollars on killer hardware and hundreds of hours on installation, configuration, patching and… more »

Google Earth Sightseeing

05/26/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
For whatever reason, I love maps. Google Earth takes that and raises it few more notches. While browsing around I came across "Google Sightseeing" which is a site dedicated to interesting entries visible via the Google world. Definitely worth blowing… more »
 

JPod

05/25/08 | by Adam | Categories: YouTube
The CBC had a very good comedy going this season, JPod, which is basically a reworked version of Douglas Coupland's "Microserfs". Given that Coupland was also involved in this show, I guess that's not really an issue. It's a Canadian show, filmed in… more »

05/13/08 | by Adam | Categories: Macintosh
On Windows boxes, there's a program called TreeSize that is an excellent tree-based representation of disk usage. When I migrated to OSX I looked for an equivalent. I'm glad to say I've found it: WhatSize. Looks good, works well. It's shareware but not… more »
 

DRM Redux

05/10/08 | by Adam | Categories: Copyright
Microsoft's shutting down their DRM validation servers for their retired MSN Music store, and thus rendering all music purchased through it unusable should the registered machine associated with the DRM license ever be altered or replaced. This reminded… more »
 

Oopsies (patent invalidation)

Backscatter Spam

05/06/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
I'll have to concur with Stephen on this one: backscatter spam (wherein the source is forged (legitimate domain name plus random collection of user names) is incredibly annoying. For a while I had my domain set to put all email that had no real mailbox… more »
