1999 speak

October 11, 2005

Ok so I had to blog about this: right now I’m in a lecture at my university and the lecture is in dutch. So the guy keeps on throwing in words (in english) like ‘corporate data model’, ‘context sensitive’ and of course everyone’s favorite ‘return on investment’. So first up why do people insist on using these words as if it still is 1999. Second why do people use a language other than their own? Especially in lectures throwing in these words is meaningless. This could all be frustration on my part, sure hope it isn’t a trend coming to hunt us from the past.

DOOM movie poster!

September 11, 2005

from digg: And, like the movie itself, the poster plays up the first-person shooter angle.

I don’t know how good the movie is going to be, the trailers look good. But history has taught us that ‘game-movies’ aren’t all that great. Still though…it -is- DOOM. I’m going.

apple.com – iPod nano announced

This thing is hot. And I want one. The only thing that disappoints me besides the fact that my 1G iPod mini has become irrelevant, is that my remote cannot be connected to the nano, so that’s a shame. This would be my third iPod after the mini and the shuffle. Is this bad? Nah! The nano is hot 😉

Google Sidebar

August 22, 2005

from digg:

Google has just launched a new service called Sidebar, It will be used to display information on the desktop like email, RSS headlines, weather, stocks, and desktop search in addition to any other content the users are viewing like photos or websites, or even a scratch pad.

What I am wondering is: “where’s the mac version?”.
Though we on the mac have dashboard and konfabulator for our widget(like) needs, Googles desktop offerings like have been mostly WindowsXP-only which is a bit of shame.
