So I finally saw Atonement over the weekend and I enjoyed it very much, though it left me depressed for a few hours afterward. The casting was great and I especially enjoyed the performance of James McAvoy. Romola Garai also gave an excellent performance. I was very emotionally invested in all the characters which is… Continue reading Atonement
I found out today at work that someone made off with our black MacBook demo. This kind of stuff pisses me off. You're not only hurting the store but the employees as well as the store has to pay for losses which could affect our salaries. If you can't afford something, save money. That's how… Continue reading We Got Jacked
*This image was taken from my iSight so hence the mirroring*UPDATE: After playing with the Air for a while, I've come to the conclusion that it's not that cool. I got bored playing with it after 5 minutes because it's that spartan and the only thing it has going for it is its design. We've… Continue reading Woke up and got to work to find this waiting for me…
One thing I've noticed after owning a Mac for several months is that Apple has a tendency to produce great products that capture the imaginations of people around the globe BUT they always leave people wanting more. One example is the iPhone. People are still pining for the little device, a year after its announcement… Continue reading The Thing About Macs
Girl: Do you guys sell cases for laptops?Me: Yeah, what kind of laptop do you have?Girl: Uhh....the new Vista.Me: Uh......that's the operating system.

I woke up at 7:00 am, slipped into my jeans and felt the beginnings of a long day ahead of me as I dragged the razor across my upper lip. First work and then class, and work again. As I grabbed a banana to eat on the bus I remembered Professor Morris telling us… Continue reading Brief Encounters

Sorry about the delay but I've been at work/class all day and this is the first time today I've had time to review all of the announcements from the MacWorld. Everyone has probably already has all the information you want about it but I'm going to sum it all up in a neat little package.The… Continue reading MacWorld Roundup
I'm pretty excited about tomorrow because MacWorld has come yet again and I'm sure Steve Jobs and Apple will have a few surprises up their sleeves. I think the Macbook line is a little outdated and hopefully a new computer will be announced tomorrow. I will be keeping up with the live blogging from Engadget… Continue reading MacWorld Tomorrow!
This if further proof that Bill Gates is "deliciously geeky." This was played before his final keynote at CES.
This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was pretty much a dud with nothing really revolutionary being announced (with the exception of Project Kuro from Pioneer.) To spice things up, a blogger from Gizmodo decided to take along his TV-B-Gone and shut down walls and walls of televisions that were being exhibited at the show. What's… Continue reading Gizmodo CES Prank = BANNED
In my previous post, I spoke of the death of DRM in 2008 but what I didn't predict was when. Today, SONY BMG announced plans to finally sell their artist's music DRM free (via Gizmodo.) This is big news for the music industry and I'm ecstatic because the customer is finally getting the rights they're… Continue reading DRM Dead
