  • Blog Post: Comcast DVR Coming Soon (to my place)

    Ah yeah, no Tivo with IR blaster for me. Comcast is finally offering a DVR based on MS technology (this one, I believe http://broadband.motorola.com/dvr/ ) and we're getting it Saturday. Sweet. Yes, my wife is already sad to know there will soon be a million old star treks archived for my nerdy indulgence...
  • Blog Post: Revenge of the Sith teaser trailer

    via Calacanis' weblog : The Episode III teaser trailer. Looks sweet. I'm starting to get excited for this. Incidentally, we took our six month old to Toys 'R Us today. As I was showing him various toys, his biggest positive reaction came when I showed him a Darth Vader action figure. He knows what...
  • Blog Post: Random Election Thought

    "Exit poll" is the new "hanging chad". Too many pundits talking about exit polls, geez.
  • Blog Post: Scientists seek to create 'three-parent' babies

    via Kurzweil and NewScientist.com : Scientists in the UK are applying for a licence to create human embryos with three genetic parents. The aim is ultimately to prevent children from inheriting genetic diseases caused by mutations in DNA housed by their mitochondria - components of cells which produce...
  • Blog Post: Ann Coulter Hit by Pie

    By way of Joi Ito I find that conservative columnist Ann Coulter was hit by a pie during a speech. Funny, yes. Worth being arrested? Doubt it. (Aside: is it pronounced like "joy" or "joey"?)
  • Blog Post: Pattern Recognition, a movie?

    William Gibson mentions in his blog that there is a possibility that Pattern Recognition will be turned into a film. Cool news for the fans. Pattern Recognition is set in post nine eleven days so no silver-screen Molly Millions. Enjoyable nonetheless. Am wondering if weblogging will find its way into...
  • Blog Post: Falling off this thing called blog...

    I have really fallen off blogging lately. I think I'll probably be migrating to my own server and cross-posting technical pieces here in the near future if I can find time to put some kind of UI together. Unfortunately I haven't found the time to do things like that. It's been about a year and a half...
  • Blog Post: Offended by a Robot

    One of the sites I run on my home web server is my baby photoblog for my friends and relatives. I built it during the fantastic paternal leave Microsoft gives its employees (one month off at full pay!), and I am still actually really into it. I recently put up an Atom feed (knowing full well that most...
  • Blog Post: First Impressions on VoIP

    K and I signed up for AT&T CallVantage voice over IP at our place and last week the D-Link DVG-1120M telephone adapter (TA) arrived. I spent some of the weekend integrating the thing into my home network. I run a Linksys wireless access point / router as well and port forward 80 to a web server....
  • Blog Post: Reasons Why You Should Not Introduce Your Parents to IM

    They will ask you every time you change your display name. -- “What does ‘t-money’ mean?” They will talk to you every time you sign into your computer. They likely only have you and one or two others on their contact list so a toast saying you just signed in is an invitation to chat. They don’t understand...
  • Blog Post: To elaborate...

    ...on why Engadget is on the short "can't live without this website" list. Here are a couple post from today: News on Tivo & NetFlix teaming up to deliver your 3 movies at a time directly over the net. Awesome. Also, a How-To on turning your old Nintendo controller into a USB joystick .
  • Blog Post: Web Sites I Can't Live Without

    Scott Mitchell asks on his blog what are the sites you can't live without. Here's mine: Outlook Web Access - my e-mail Google CNN / MSNBC / BBC News (I am a kind of a news junkie) Gizmodo / Engadget NBA.com Baby photo sites of my kid and my niece For some reason, Gizmodo and Engadget are listed here...

    Eric Sink has a new Business of Software on the Micro-ISV (one person ISV) and is running a micro-ISV experiment to sell a winnable solitaire program.

  • Blog Post: Totoro

    We watched Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro last night. It's a story of two young girls with a hospitalized mother and a working father who move to a new neighborhood and discover the gigantic Totoro living under a nearby tree. Don't know how to explain what Totoro is - a giant creature invoking undeniable...
  • Blog Post: "What's on Your USB Keychain?"

    In the spirit of Apple's old "What's on your PowerBook?" ads or even Gizmodo's "What's in your Gadget Bag?, I ask you what's on your USB drive keychain. Having just popped mine in after some months, I am surprised to find: a C# source file to screen scrape NBA scores a collection of tools such as: an...
  • Blog Post: US & Iraq Opening Ceremonies Photo

    I came across this photo of the US and Iraqi Olympic delegations at the opening ceremonies via this blog . Thought it was cool and interesting enough to share.

  • Blog Post: Grandpa and Tech

    The other weekend the man who begat mom who begat Tosh stopped by for a visit. Yes, Grandpa might be considered the 78 year old clone of myself in some ways, but when it comes to computer technology he was never current. I was trying to explain the TextAmerica site to him only to realize for myself the...

  • Blog Post: KITT for Sale

    Boing Boing reports that one of the original Knight Rider cars is for sale on EBay , complete with the scanning lights in the grill and external speakers that make that scanning sound. You know the sound. I was always an A-Team kid myself. If that black van with the sweet red stripe comes on the market...
  • Blog Post: Isaac Hayes' Three Laws of Robotics

    Some guy Shane posted “Isaac Hayes' 3 Laws of Robotics“ as a comment to this blog entry on Engadget . I laughed out loud. A robot must risk his neck for his brother man, and may not cop out when there's danger all about. A robot must be a sex machine to all the chicks, except where...

    All the gadget sites are talking about Amazon accepting pre-orders for these portable media center (PMC) devices . These are little hard drive based players that you can view recorded tv on (as well as pictures and listen to music). Both players offered at Amazon have 20GB of storage and cost five hundred...
  • Blog Post: Office Space Wars

    The Seattle PI is running a story about how Washington ferries are now equipped with wi-fi (free throughout the summer). Sweet, now I can sync my aggregator on the way to go salmon fishin' with grandpa.
  • Blog Post: Welcome Home 5.8 GHz Cordless

    All right, I couldn't take losing my wireless network each time someone talked on our old 2.4 GHz cordless phone so I broke down and ordered this . I swear not a single person had called our place since I plugged it in days ago. Oh well, I suppose eventually I will get the satisfaction of being online...
