Foleo: Dude, I’m Not Getting A Fat-Ass Dell!

September 19, 2007

This photo is for all those eejits who think an el-cheapo Dell notebook can replace a Foleo:

Like, dude, if you can’t tell, heh-heh, the Foleo is on the right.

The only thing that makes the Foleo look huge is an iPhone:

Wow. I’m Really Out Of The iPhone Loop!

September 19, 2007

My. Jaw. Just. Drops.

Screenshots courtesy of the otherwise-annoying “Dock” application. Install it from Installer.app. It puts a little light blurb way down in the lower right corner. When you tap and drag on that just right, managing not to trigger whatever icon is also down in that corner, you get a nice scrolling rainbow “dock” with all of your installed apps. Scroll all the way to the right, and the last two icons are “Screenshot” and “Cancel”. Hit Screenshot, and a couple of seconds later, a screenshot is taken, and added to your Camera Roll with a filename starting with IMG_9000 (I guess so they don’t overwrite existing photos). Then I emailed the non-scaled version of the screenshot to Flickr using the “SendPics” app.

Simple, no? :-)

I have no idea. But I want it!!

Full Metal Jacket For MacBook

September 19, 2007

Shimura Metal Jacket MacBook…

Go look. Very nice. I’d say this would be great for the Asus Eee too, but it’d probably double its weight!

YouTube: New Asus Eee Vids

September 19, 2007

Asus Eee runs video clip

Surprisingly, the Eee runs sd video trailer files very well. And the speaker quality good too.

In the closing seconds, it also seems to be running an MP3/audio player app.

ASUSTeK eee 701 360° Panoramic

Un EEE 701 qui tourne sur lui même à 360°, histoire de l’apprecier sous toutes les coutures.

Yeah, what it says. Almost a fetish video!

decTOP

Too bad I’m not a hardcore techie who knows how to take advantage of this thing. Several people have written about installing flavors of Linux on it. No reports of Windows, however.


Blog Notes: WordPress Is Ill Once Again!

September 19, 2007

There’s very weird shit happening with WordPress again today.

Category tags that I didn’t specify are appearing in posts.

Blog Search is broken.

Sometimes it requires a Refresh to see posted pictures.

You’ve been warned.

Another email to WordPress Support is in order…


Asus Eee: Alleged Hands-On Report

September 19, 2007

Yeah, right. It reads like he put his hands on it — and did nothing else! My own fondles have more details than this rubbish! “Ooh, I touched it! Quick, let’s file a report!!”

Hands-on with Asus’s £100 laptop

Despite its diminutive size the lid is sturdy and the overall build quality certainly didn’t feel cheap or flimsy. We’re a little concerned about the battery life of the cheapest model; dearer configurations with four-cell batteries are quoted as lasting a decent three hours, so it remains to be seen how the 700-C’s two-cell battery might fare.

Well, that’s interesting — if it’s true. This is the first I’ve read of a difference in battery configurations between models.
