How To Extend Your Laptop Battery Life - Laptop... →
Marco wrote a good post about what you should know about your laptop battery. It is false to believe that you need to empty your battery and charge it back regularly to extend its life. And this is true for all the lithium-polymer batteries used in any modern laptops these days. To extend your battery life, you should plugged your laptop much as possible and run it on battery for a while at...

The Photojojo Book Is Out! →
I like Photojojo and their simple, but effective interface designs. Photojojo begun as a newsletter and grew also as an amazing online store. Now they have their own book. I like the single promo page for their book, sweet and simple. Maybe the text about the book can be revised to make it more simple and interesting to read as being more descriptive of the book (some snapshots of the book pages...

Just heard today that HBO is preparing another series on World War II called The Pacific. It is similar, although unrelated, to Band of Brothers. Whereas Band of Brothers focused on United States Army’s involvement in the European Theater of Operations, the new series will be about the United States Marine Corps’s actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations. It will still be produce...

The “Good Enough” Test: Flip Vs. Apple iPod Nano Since Apple added a video camera to his Nano, some argue that the days of the the low cost Flip video camcorder are counted. NewTeeVee did a compare test, and when it is true that more light are going in the lens of the Flip for a clearer and cleaner image, the Nano is clearly passing the “good enough” test. And please keep in mind that...

You probably tought like me that high jump olympic track and field discipline has been unchanged for centuries. That the jumpers have always been using the back-first technique. But no! A single man, Richard “Dick” Fosbury, has changed everything at the Mexico City Olympic in 1968 by setting a new Olympic record and winning the gold medal. Before him, every athletes, no exception,...

Music And Me
I’ve decided to begin to talk about music on this blog. Not intensively as others can do it, but sometime by suggesting something to listen. But first you need to know about how I perceived music. Many will say that I don’t like music. Where it’s true that I can enjoy peace and quietness for months, its not true that I don’t like music. I’m just extremely picky to...
You Hit Me With Your Prius
Me: Bicyclist heading to jury on 10th Street, Friday at 8:50am.
You: Prius Driver, crossing over two lanes, hitting me with your car and speeding away.

Regarding The Future Of The iPod Touch
Steve Jobs: “Originally, we weren’t exactly sure how to market the Touch. Was it an iPhone without the phone? Was it a pocket computer? What happened was, what customers told us was, they started to see it as a game machine, (we) started to market it that way, and it just took off. And now what we really see is it’s the lowest-cost way to the App Store, and that’s the big draw. So what we were...

Fix The Slow Emptying Trash In Snow Leopard. →
Just noticed that my trash was really slow to empty since my upgrade to Snow Leopoard. Look like the Empty Trash securely was checked in the Advances Preferences of Finder. Just uncheck and enjoy. For whatever reason it is more slow in Snow Leopard than Leopard to empty the trash securely.
The New Apple iPod Nano Will Be A Killer →
Apple already sold 100 millions copies of the iPod nano. It’s the most popular music player in the world.

10.6 Snow Leopard - First impression →
Last Friday I upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. As wrote Marco Arment, you don’t really notice a difference, as almost nothing in the UI changed except for some enhancement in the Dock and Exposé. Everything is under the hood. The engineers at Apple spend all their time boosting the motor. Nothing we didn’t expect, as Apple already briefed us on their OS preview page. So no big...

Interesting interview with Ryan Kwanten who plays Jason Stackhouse, the town Casanova, in Alan Ball’s hit HBO TV Series True Blood.
