Tik-Tok Watch Band for iPod Nano

Awesome. Check it out - watch bands for the iPod Nano. But how long does the iPod Nano battery last if you always want it in watch mode? Isn't it a bit annoying to have to click to turn the watch on, or do current nanos let you leave the clock on 24/7? P.S. Clock […]

I echo a lot of the sentiments shared in this post. The Kindle is far and away a better "reading" machine than the iPad. Still, for the things I blow through quickly - magazines - I'd love to get an iPad. I've said it since the iPad was announced. Disappointingly, there's been no movement on […]

Netflix Everywhere

I just realized that I have more devices in my house capable of playing content from Netflix (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, two iPhones, four computers) than I have: Working keyboards (ADB or USB). Firewire devices attached to any and all Macs. Books I'm currently in the middle of reading (around six). Eggs in the refrigerator. […]

Homemade Spacecraft

Wow. Homemade Spacecraft from Luke Geissbuhler on Vimeo.

Grrrrrr. We finally have software (on Mac OS X) that can play back and analyze golf swings with videos in portrait orientation (which makes sense for golf) and I discover that the otherwise venerable Casio FH-25 can't or won't rotate video - it doesn't set the "rotated" flag in the video file so that playback […]

How many pages of applications are on your iPhone? How many folders do you have and how many apps are just hanging out on their own? I have only two pages. As you would read, I have (italics = folders): Calendar, Clock, Notes, Maps Calculator, Games, Entertainment, Compass Sports, Social, Photography, Settings Weather, WeatherBug, TWC, […]

Apple to Buy Netflix?

Hacking Netflix thinks so. I, however, do not.

Grace Hopper on Letterman

When discussing the first computer - the Mark I at Harvard - a funny exchange: Letterman: How did you know so much about computers then?" Hopper: I didn't. It was the first one.

Netflix on iPhone

I've been playing with it off and on, and I've gotta say I'm impressed. Over 3G I experience no buffering issues, good sound quality, and an incredibly impressive resolution. These are still frames, so they're going to look blockier than things look in motion, but I still think they're impressively detailed:

Is the iPad a "computer" in your mind? Yes No View Results

Do Eye-Fi Cards Work?

These things have been out for awhile and they still exist, so they must work… but do they work well? An 8 GB card costs ~$125. What happens to video (it does work with video too, right?) files that you record but aren't within range of your computer? Do they automatically sync over when you […]

Xbox Kinect

I need help being ready the next time my significant other won't listen.

Vimeo Plus

My Vimeo Plus membership is about to expire. For $59, I can't see myself renewing. Heck, at $29 I'm not sure I'd renew. Like it or not, YouTube has won. It's free, has HD, embeds, and has just enough privacy controls (Vimeo lets you control on which sites your videos can be embedded, YouTube does […]

Every instance - every single one - of the ligatures in the book "Unplayable: An Inside Account of Tiger's Most Tumultuous Season" for my Kindle has an issue with ligatures. Most commonly this is "fl" - lowercase "F" and an "L" character next to each other (or "fi" - "F" and "I"). As you can […]

It almost never fails - when I'm uploading a lot of files (typically I see this when I'm uploading a vBulletin update) - my server will eventually boot me out and refuse to connect for 10 to 15 minutes (or longer). Nobody's ever been able to give me a reason why or tell me how […]
