Why, oh why?

04/11/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology
The other night my computer rebooted due to an update from Microsoft. This was a bit annoying as I'd left some test cases up running overnight. I'm still unclear on why there is no option to automatically download an update without installing it under… more »

Keyboard PC

04/10/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Calgary
Self-contained PCs built into a keyboard have been going around for a while and, to be honest, I've never understood the appeal. While the description of "Amiga-like" is fair, given the design of the A500/A600/A1200, these are just under-powered PCs in… more »

Oversize Big Wheel trike

The first time I saw the picture of the archetypal child's trike at the top of this Gizmodo page, I didn't get it. It took a moment before the scale sunk in... (Via Gizmodo and UberReview) more »

Every now and again you see a piece of kit and think "Oh, cool"; and then when you read the real specifications you find that it's just not going to work for what you had in mind. more »

Those darn blinking LEDs

03/29/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Whining
