I Love PBwiki

I have been using PBwik for over 6 months now and I can't live without it.

PBwiki is a great tool to capture the random bits of stuff that I find floating around my brain and on the internet.

Since I use multiple computers (Mac and PC both at home and work) I need a central place to store lots of information that I come across.

-I use it to bookmark my favorite sites.
-I use it to store random thoughts.
-I use it to collect recipes for PB and J sandwiches.

I could so be an analyst

While reading this article on emerging 3G wireless networks, I thought to myself, why would anyone want to have 3G technology integrated into their laptop. That's why laptops still come with PCMCIA slots so you can have freedom to put in what you choose.

It does make sense that some functions that are standard (802.11G) should be built in because they aren't going to change anytime soon.

Dear Seagate - Please Build This Now!!!!!

Storage is not easy. Sure anyone can add more hard drives into their PC or burn DVDs' of their Tivo transfers but I don't have time for that. I want to be able to slap in a cartridge with many hundreds of gigs, copy some stuff to it, pull it out and put it away.

My Macworld Predictions

I will be attending Macworld tomorrow on the poor mans pass (exhibit's only). Since many "insiders" and "experts" are giving their predictions for what Steve Jobs will wow us with this year I thought I would pretend that I am an expert too and spout my predictions.

1. Of course Apple will announce the MacIntel box(es). This is not news. By the end of the day, there will be at least 100 sites that have instructions on how to hack the hardware and put Windows on it. Another 100 sites will have instructions for loading OS X on a generic wintel box.

2. AppleTivo. The second big thing will be that they finally found a use for the Mac Mini. The only way this will become a Tivo killer is if they don't charge a subscription fee for program listings and allow unlimited storage.

3. iBloat 06. The newest versions of iLife will require the most powerful systems available and won't run for shit on the old macs (like mine).

Of course since I don't think anyone actually reads my blog I wll revise this post tomorrow to show that I accurately predicted everything that came out tomorrow.

$100 laptop video

Of course all cool people know about the $100 laptop. Here's a video from Andy Carvin interviewing the CTO of the project.

Will the children of Iraq get one of these before the children of the USA?

I am so smart - SMRT

I need a good bouncer. Perhaps Patrick Swayzie is available.
