Tour The International Space Station

There is a very cool tour of the International Space Station available on YouTube as a set of four videos: Part I Part II Part III Part IV There’s no award to be won for camera work as it’s pretty shaky and quick moving not to mention occasionally hard to follow but it’s a very […]

User Generated Content Ownership

Since the creation of the <form/> elements people have been wondering about the ownership and copyright of content created online. From email and message boards in Web 1.0 to blogs and Twitter in Web 2.0 the same fundamental questions remain. Lately, Twitter has been the focus. Twitter is actually pretty clear about it’s claims to […]

8GB Memory Kit For 15″ MacBook Pro

I’ve bitched before about Apple’s 15″ MacBook Pro not having the matte screen option and not supporting 8GB RAM despite the 17″ supporting both features. According to Apple Insider there is now an 8GB kit is available for the 15″ (all but the 2.4GHz model). It costs an insane $1,200 while you can likely spec […]

Literal Version Of Beatles Penny Lane

Here’s a literal version of The Beatles Penny Lane. When I say “literal”, I mean it literally. Quite amusing. There’s a few more good ones I might link here in upcoming days.

NASA Constellation Program

NASA has posted a very cool video showing the status, and some renderings of the Constellation program. The parallels to the Apollo program are obvious and intentional as they are trying to minimize cost and risk by utilizing what was learned a generation ago. In just 3 years they seem to have done a lot […]

Skype For iPhone

I’ve been a Skype user since 2004 when I first fell in love with the service. I used it a fair amount in college as a way to study for tests and work on programming projects with other classmates without having to sit in a library for hours. It was convenient to each code from […]

iPhone OS 3.0

I’m rather thrilled with Apple’s iPhone OS 3.0 upgrade. They announced way more than I expected them too. Cut & Paste – Great interface, long long overdue. Push Notifications – Finally! Push notification will make the iPhone a million times more useful. I’m thrilled by this. Way better than background apps since it won’t consume […]

Steve Wozniak On Dancing With The Stars

I couldn’t resist the awkward screen grab. 😉 I knew it would be all over the web a matter of minutes after it aired. If he survives a round or two it will be due to fans not the judges. I think that will be more interesting than the actual dancing. Judges didn’t seem to […]

iPhone OS 3.0 Preview Next Week

Apple has an event scheduled for next week which is presumed to be a preview of iPhone OS 3.0. Want/Expect: Copy/paste – Duh Push Notification – Apple promised this back in the fall and has yet to deliver. I suspect we’ll at least hear something about it. I’m hoping it will still happen, though I […]

iPhone Apps On Your Desktop

Apple should let users purchase iPhone apps and run them on their desktop similar to Dashboard widgets. You should be able to purchase through iTunes just like users do already and then be able to run them on your iPhone, iPod touch, or on your desktop. Apple already has the technology to do this on […]
