Ohh ahh, Apple releases iPad, tribute to MadTV

January 28th, 2010 No comments

Yes, thats right, Apple fans everywhere rejoice, for your saviour has released the hugely anticipated iPad. While one Steve Bing’s Bings Bings, another whips out his iPad.

Thats right folks, it’ll be a hit with the ladies! But seriously, can’t wait to ArsTechnica to do a proper review about it.

I guess Bill’s vision of people using Tablets Slate‘s is finally coming true. I still have a Compaq HP TC1000 which I scored from MSFT back in the days when TabletPC was all the rage – but unfortunately it didn’t pickup. I remember Dr Neil Roodyn used to carry his TabletPC around everywhere he went.

For anyone who doesn’t mind not having the latest shiny toy from Apple, but still functional, beautiful and may not lock you in to the WWoA (Wonderful World of Apple), checkout the Tegra Android SmartPad.

Me likey, checkout the technical specifications.

The original ad has been scaled back a bit as I doubt the right candidate could be found in time. Full credit to TheRegister.

HP Computers are racist.

Gold.

Soon as my blackness enters the frame…. I’m sneaking in….. Black desi gets in there… Uh no, no face recognition buddy. HP Computers are racist.

Read the HP response to this video. Clearly a failure in the QA department!

xkcd: Nachos, the end of an era, Geocities closes.

October 26th, 2009 No comments

Well a special xkcd comic today to the theme of Geocities, the free website hosting company almost any nerd cool guy/gal made their mark – including yours truly somewhere down SiliconValley (97/98). Around that time, most of the javascript was thanks to The Javascript Planet, the CGI-Scripts were mostly from Matt Wright‘s ScriptArchive and most webmasters had a Fido7 script somewhere. After musing with GeoCities for a year or so I moved over and did what anyother kid would do, made a games site on FreeServers called GamesGalore. Essentially I reviewed demos I got from the PCGamer magazine at the time ($15 a pop!). Made no money but it was all good fun.

The days of marquees, ‘optimised for Netscape or IE’ camps, frames (GamesGalore had it!) and lots of flashing animated gifs, because that was where it was at.

No point pasting the comic here, check out xkcd and enjoy the memories.

I swear that’s the only time you’ll ever see a marquee or a blinking text on this site!

Apple’s and Linus’s take on Windows 7

October 23rd, 2009 No comments

Apple Propaganda, I mean PR

I posted about Microsoft’s four new Windows 7 commercials the other day and yes, they *are* commercials – they tell you a bit about the product they’re advertising. Now let’s take a look at Apple’s attempts – great PR btw! I think they were going for: ‘lets create the most douchebaggy thing to publicise our product and have people post blogs about it’. Well here’s some free PR work courtesy of Apple.

Bill Gates may go down in history for the BSoD for Windows 98 but lest we forget that little kid in school who was always jumping up and down for attention, teasing the smarter kids because he just wasn’t getting any attention.

“Now what is this? I dunno, but it works.” – Steve Jobs

“It’s pretty awesome when it works.” – Steve Jobs

It sure is Steve, it suuuuure is. Think Different. It just works. I wonder how they’ll cover having an ad-supported Mac OS X operating system in the future?

Linus Torvalds

Anyway I much prefer the suttle attitude that Linus Torvalds took at the Japan Linux Symposium.

He’s got a sense of humour (and coolness) and as a Linux user (#412328) I’m ever grateful for his operating system. Damn I miss Japan 🙁
