My old friend Tim had a patent application show up, and folks are picking up on it.. Even Slashdot picked it up.
I hope Tim gets some of the recognition he deserves, he works really really hard designing some really great things (can you say GarageBand?).
Ok, see what I mean.. yesterday, transparentish concrete, and today, Sony will be introducing an E Ink book in Japan in late April.
I want one – sign me up.. well, I want one that I can read English in I suppose.. Apple, where are you?
Well, not exactly transparent, but check this out, basically “transparent concrete“. Found it on Gizmodo.
Stuff like this just shocks me – I’ve watched Star Trek for years, and only now do we seem to be getting this really crazy, far out future stuff. Recently I’ve been feeling that humanity is getting a bit stuck in technology. This gives me some hope.
Steve got some new toys today – that SightFlex thing looks pretty handy, it would probably make me use my iSight more.
Gives me a good reason to finally go over to Steve’s place and check it out.
Since I created a RSS 2.0 feed, my dates had been off.. I fixed that tonight by getting an official one from moveabletype.org. And bing, it just worked.
Maybe this personal weblog stuff isn’t as hard as it first seems.
From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur for a day trip, to chat with some Nike folks regarding testing issues.. WOW!! I’m jealous of her, what an adventure.. and I’m stuck in an all day meeting in Mountain View.
Wow, I won the Quarterly Karma prize over at John’s personal site. Thanks John, I honestly don’t think I’ve ever one anything before (that my poor memory can remember).
Go check out his other site too, both are in my bookmark/NetNewsWire list.
An Inc. writer meets the founder of JetBlue.
Found it from John’s post at inluminent.com.
I’d like to think Intuit also does a good job of listening to it’s customers.. I know we are trying hard in our group, I have a feeling I don’t see a lot of it because of me working remotely.
Hmmm.. maybe I can somehow keep in contact with our users through a weblog? All unofficially of course, I’m not speaking for my employer (in case Ed reads this some day). Heh heh heh.
So, in regards my complaint about Down2Earth earlier tonight, Do me a favour.
Go read Steve Harrington’s March 7th sermon, and Bob Sander’s March 7th sermon. (note you might have to hunt around for Bob’s if you read this after about a week, as they don’t have a perma-link for it yet).
Tell me which one makes you think more, consider life and how you act in it. To me it’s Steve’s all the way.
