To Update or Not To Update?
That is the question really, isn’t it? It has been more than a couple of days that Apple has released its 3.0 update for the iPhone / iPod touch OS, and I haven’t updated my iPod touch (1st gen) yet. Why? Well, because I’m not sure it is worth the £5.99 I will have to part with (US$ 9.95 if you are in the US). I know that eventually I will end up updating it because I like having the most updated software and I don’t like being left behind, and also because £5.99 is an amount I allow myself to spend ......

Reviewing Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop
I have just bought a Dell Vostro 1510 laptop at work for my own use and I thought it would be interesting to write a review about it now that I have used it for a week or so, although my "thing" is not really reviewing equipment. Since I consider myself quite an advanced user, I think I can do this. :) You should know that I'm moving from a Sony Vaio VGN-A215Z, so that's what I'll be comparing it to. First of all, let me say that I prefer Dell to Sony when it comes to laptops and computers in general, ......

Online Maps Are Good!
I was reading this article on BBC today, online maps 'wiping out history', and I couldn't believe what I was reading. For me, this is just another example of someone who cannot cope with the fact that the Internet is changing their jobs, just like the librarian I wrote about in this other article. This article now is about the president of the British Cartographic Society, Ms Mary Spencer, saying that the Internet maps are leaving important landmarks that are part of History out, and that people ......

Once Upon a Time There Was Privacy
Once upon a time there was a little girl called Privacy. Privacy had a rough childhood, having suffered a lot while trying to grow up, and being invaded and broken several times. Her mother, Civil Liberty, tried to create a better environment for her whenever it was possible, but Government, a man hungry for power, was always trying tear little Privacy into pieces. The thing was that Privacy had the keys to several places that Government wanted to go to but Privacy wouldn't open the doors all the ......

Stealing Wireless Connections
It’s been a long while since I’ve written something here, and I have to apologize for last time. It was the worst post I’ve ever done. It’s not an excuse but it was really late and I was not in a good moment there. :) I meant to write this a while ago, but I didn't have the time, so despite the fact that the moment is gone now, I'm going to write it anyway, especially because I think the discussion shouldn’t have stopped. Last month another person was arrested in London for stealing a broadband connection. ......

Minority Report - A Step Forward Already
This is going to be a quick post... I just have to talk about this, since I've posted something related to it just a couple of days ago. Oh well... I almost didn't believe it when I read today the headlines saying that "Microsoft waves in Minority Report-style computing era". They're releasing a screen just like the one I was talking about on my last post. Well, not everything like that, just the part about the multi-touch screen, they haven't got to transparent screens yet. It's called Microsoft ......

Minority Report
It's a great movie, isn't it? It is based on a very good short story by Philip K. Dick, but we are here to talk about a particular point about the film, not the short story. Everybody probably remembers the computer with which Chief John Anderton looks at and plays with the images sent by the pre-cogs. It had two amazing features: the glass screen and an amazing interface. Think about it, a multi-touch screen built with transparent LEDs and instead of "touch" it would receive signals from multi magic ......
