Google maps...for cell phone or cell phone PDA 2006-10-19 11:35 UTC


It's great. I just tried it on my Palm Treo 650 PDA.

If you look at it on your desktop PC, you'll get an introduction to google mobile maps. But if you look at www.google.com/gmm on your cell phone or cell phone PDA, you'll be prompted to download the executable program. You'll need to install it to run. You will need an active internet connection to use this, so if you don't have a smartphone or PDA phone with internet access, you're out of luck.

Execuse me, I believe you have my stapler 2006-07-17 14:22 UTC
For those of you who remember the 1999 movie "Office Space", here's a website dedicated to Milton's red stapler.
Yes, in 2004, Swingline finally gave in and started producing red staplers. And of course, you can buy one at redswinglinestapler.com.
For those of you who don't know, "Office Space" is a comedy about the hi-tech corporate world. You have the asshole CEO who goes around firing people to save half a penny. Then you have the techies who lost their jobs and tries to get revenge. Another interesting character is this Milton guy. He's this fat guy who gets pushed around by the big boss too much. He gets moved down to the basement. The boss takes his red Swingline stapler. And finally Milton breaks down and burns down the place for revenge.
Now go and buy yourself a red Swingline stapler and put it on your desk!

When's your bus comming? Is your bus comming? 2006-05-19 09:25 UTC
The MTA New York City (bus, train) plans to launch a satellite bus tracking system in August.
You will see real-time arrival statistics on their web site.
Now you won't have to worry about when or if your bus is comming. Of course, that also means that bus drivers will be more worry. It means they won't be able to hit the bars or slack off other ways.

Crazy Eddies prices are in-saaane! 2006-05-18 00:00 UTC
If you grew up in the 1980's and you were somewhere in New York City, then you probably remember that nut Crazy Eddie.
It was an electronics/computer store that grew into a chain of stores. They always had a big selection and the latest stuff.
But they were also not very honest. They often sold used products as new. I brought a Commodore 128D from them and it looked used, but I kept it anyway because they weren't being manufactured. Commodore went under. Too bad, they made nice products.

Cell Phones, Web Browsers to Get VOIP Feature 2006-04-10 14:12 UTC
An Internet phone service called JaJah will become standard on a significant cell phone operating system, and the Opera Web browser for computers and cell phones, the company announced April 5.

JaJah is seeking the benefits of being first to try a particular market, but also risking the equally as spectacular first-mover pitfalls.

VOIP is a way to make phone calls using an Internet connection rather than a traditional home or cell phone.

Bill Gates Mocks MIT's $100 Laptop Project 2006-04-10 14:04 UTC
"If you are going to go have people share the computer, get a broadband connection and have somebody there who can help support the user, geez, get a decent computer where you can actually read the text and you're not sitting there cranking the thing while you're trying to type," Gates said.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, MA, USA, is trying to produce $100USD computers for developing nations. These machines have a tiny screen and no drives. They have a small hand crank that generates power to the unit and rechargeable battery.

Parallel Universes 2006-04-03 16:22 UTC

Does a parallel universe exist?
Some scientists say an infinite number of parallel universes exists.
What's the farthest end of the universe? It may be the back of your head.
A copy of you may exist in another universe. Or maybe infinite copies of you exists.
This is nothing new. The ancient Greeks tried to disprove the concept of what we call today Hyperspace, 2000 years ago.
