After clicking on this link, scroll down and read the few raw paragraphs from the recently declassified document written by a supposed psychic being employed by the C.I.A. in 1986. I’m not saying that the implications of this document and “vision” are necessarily as substantial as the Wired journalist feels that it is, but it’s extremely interesting nonetheless.
So, I tried out Google’s RSS reader years ago and it sucked. A lot. Been using Bloglines ever since, half because I needed the auto-magical-mobile-detecting ESP it did while I was on my Sidekick and reading.
Not anymore. Google Reader has a new version. This new version, it is good. And when you’re done reading all of the stuff from your feeds it takes you here. Pretty flippin funny if you ask me.
Google. Cataloging the world’s information, and being cheeky about it.
Vringo just secured some funding. They offer a video ringtone service. I call you, you see my video play on your phone. This seemed superfluous but then I saw the example using a Rocky and Bullwinkle clip and realized that it could be kinda interesting. While I’m sure Drew might choose something similar, he could also call us all with that video of the two japanese kids vomiting into each others’ mouths back and forth. while disgusting, it would be extremely humorous as well, which pretty much negates the bad part.
This whole Vista thing could end up being a really big problem for Microsoft since, as the article indicates, they missed the last big enterprise upgrade cycle and, according to another article I posted previously (can’t find the link right now, doh), I.T. positions and needs in general are shrinking.
I think a survey needs to be conducted to determine how many people switched to OSX and Apple products since Vista was announced. It’s a major reason I switched, and I know that Apple is posting record sales with its MacBooks.
