He was at the start of the month, now he’s at the end too.

James sold his Samsung Q1!

Went with that hussy, the Fujitsu P1610.

He does this shit just to drive me crazy!!

Finally! Lusty Vega Gets A Blog!

November 29, 2006

Steve at Carrypad has revealed that someone has started a blog for one of my Lust Objects, the Raon Digital Vega microPC.

Given the problems Steve mentioned in his review of the Pepper Pad 3, this little bugger has gone higher up on my Might Buy List.

I hope this Vega blog will be updated frequently!

What The Fuck Do You Mean, “I Don’t Know”?

November 27, 2006

It’s a worldwide story that I won’t even bother to link to: fifty (at least!) bullets shot by the NYPD into a soon-to-be-groom’s vehicle following a bachelor party.

As if that isn’t enough to send me into a fury, what came next is even worse.

The Mayor and Police Commissioner decide to hold a press conference today.

Mark those key words: they decide.

So when the questions come from the press, what do most of their answers consist of?

“I don’t know.”

Well why the fuck don’t you know?!!?

Youscheduled this goddammed meeting to report to us, your bosses (you do remember who the fuck puts that money in your bank accounts, right?), and you basically drop your pants before us and show us that you’re dickless?

What the fuck is this?

How fucking DARE you!

If I came before either of you smug bastards in a job interview, would either of you find “I don’t know” an acceptable reply to any interview question you lobbed at me? Would either of you hire me on the basis of “I don’t know”?

Then why the fuck do you expect me as your employer to accept your bullshit “I don’t know” replies today?!!?

What the bloody fuck is wrong with you people?

Spoon Moon Zune

The Zune anti-luv continues…

I just saw a Zune, and guess what? Its a piece of shit.

Clever Parasite Ad

November 26, 2006

Someone’s been going around Manhattan slapping an ad onto an ad. The parasite ad is on new iPod posters. The ad touts the URL of a podcasting site.

I thought this was so damned clever I remembered the URL and visited the site!

Now I link to it here.

Update: Bad copy/paste. Link fixed!

Get Thee NOT To A Zunery

November 26, 2006

Avoid the loony Zune

Andy Ihnatko — longtime Mac partisan — shreds the Zune at The Chicago Sun-Times.

I especially loved this bit:

“These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it,” said Doug Morris, CEO of Universal Music Group. “So it’s time to get paid for it.”

Well, Morris is just a big, clueless idiot, of course. Do you honestly want morons like him to have power over your music player?

Morris, you asshole! Congress will wake up to your shakedown shit. Prepare to have your party crashed by warrant-wielding Feds.

Christopher Fowler Slays Me

November 26, 2006

Sheree launched another assault on the English language. ‘St C is blatantly taxin’ us saying it’s someone on this estate just ’cause we got the Saladins and they’re Yahs and they diss us and saying we’re slack and that, so when they come here sharkin’ us we’re gonna bust em up.’ [pg. 152]

— and —

‘That is like so no chance on that!’ squealed Danielle, with her friend in support. [pg. 152]
