    I give you a hint. My posts are opinionated, they're a statement like the hair on my avatar. If you want to make a point and have your opinion heard, you have to generalize and blow things out of proportion, to come across. You cannot say (or write) "I think that I might agree, and maybe, but on...

    That is like, your opinion. <_< Really, what do I care about some romanticized drama on a TV show. Senna died, doing what he loves most. It was a life threatening situation he moved in. And as far as I can tell, he wasn't a pussy on the race track either. It's called "Live by the sword"...

    If people don't like certain products, the companies that are producing them are going down. Boohoo. And if YOU wouldn't be oblivious to history, you would know that this is nothing new. On a side note: Detroit was going down because AMERICANS didn't buy those cars. And if they didn't want them...

    If they were thinking that way: I don't see a comparison. McLaren/Mercedes was a brief joint venture (even though much better than Mercedes and Chrysler :mrgreen: ). But, the SLS is built on the legacy of the 300SL. The 300SL is iconic, and the SLS is bringing a touch of that history to our...

    No SLS! No SLS! <_< Oh well, why bother with the resurrection of a car legend? Instead, long drawn out whining about the British Motor Industry. The only people that care, are the ones that actually lost their job at one point. I'm not joking, the last 5 minutes or so, I was zoning out...

    You always have the option of buying 'freeware' for 0,99$ a piece.

    The iPad

    I just had this idea; if the iPad (or a similar device) could be a way to approach the Internet in a more functional way. Meaning, the Internet itself is not the purpose, it is supposed to serve a need or a purpose that I have, before I approach the Internet. I know the Internet inside out. And...

    iPhone / iOS Thread

    Some Apple guy lost his prototype iPhone. Right, that's exactly how it happened. Not! <_< It's not just the secrecy of the product and a possible punishment. It's the value this phone must have to any Apple employee. If I consider the 'Apple cult': an employee who is granted access to the...

    Another pinball machine for the basement game room!

    @72SSAbody Nice, very nice. Those Pinball machines still have an appeal, even these days with all the high tech video games. I don't know anything about Pinball. But, over ten years ago I kind of fell in love with this one machine, and I played it a lot for a while. It's the 'Addams Family'...

    NBC Late Night woes

    Thanks for the feedback. I know that any appreciation of Leno was unpopular, or should I say uncool, in the last 6 months. But the guy must be doing something right. If Leno has a good day and an interesting guest, I'd watch it. Maybe he is very 'middle of the road', but that doesn't have to be...

    NBC Late Night woes

    I'm a little late with this, as far as the Tonight Show-Conan thing. Anyway. Xbox Live? Right, talking about running the career completely into the ground. Conan didn't make it with the Tonight Show cause nobody was watching it. That simple. I listen to the Howard Stern Show, and Howard was...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    The dumb-client/almighty-server concept is no evolution. It would mean that everybody has to rely on one centralized point. The 'Super Computer' would just be outsourced to another single location. And if that One fails, everything is down. Having computational power and even storage spread out...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    A dummy terminal alone wouldn't do it, the single computer had to serve a purpose and contribute. As far as belonging to a global network that is almost an organism. With the single computer acting as sort of a cell. If Everything has a tendency to be connected with everything else of it's...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    I don't want to chime in on the last post. I just saw this article. http://scitech.blogs.cnn.com/2010/04/14/original-xbox-live-is-no-more/ I don't think that people are likely to move away from the concept of 'their own.' For example buying the rights to watch a movie online, as many times as...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    And me too. A little bit of everything I guess. :blink: I have yet to find a way to integrate the situation in the Middle East. --- No, the 'Super Computer' I mentioned has to have a different, more intuitive approach than today's Personal Computing. People collecting insane amounts of data is...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    Damn, you got me. :blink: No really, I'm not. :D The Google Desktop Search was just a choice because I'm used to the Google look. I don't work for Apple either. I don't own a MAC cause I'm used to the PC environment, and the Apple gadgets are too restricted for me. But the success of the...

    Building the Super Computer: Indexing Data and Documents with 'Google Desktop'

    Want me to draw you a picture? I guess this one is calling for a simplified graphic. Just follow the dainty treats that will lead you to the knowledge. ----- Around ten years ago the average HDD in a home computer had the size of about 4Gb. And about 25% were used for the OS and installed...
