LifeDrive Notes: Saguaro Video

January 7, 2007

Saguaro YouTube video

Due to a technical glitch, I had to watch it on the PC without sound.

At first glance, it looks impressive. But what I see in the demo really isn’t useful to me. What do I care for a bunch of silly headline tickers? Why do I want that shit crawling across my screen? I’d rather have a ton of info in a static RSS pool.

The transparency effects remind me of the dreaded Cobalt version of Palm OS that never happened (or at least never happened to the general public!).

I’ll begin to get all excited if someone releases a kick-ass word processor for it, a kick-ass browser for it, a kick-ass RSS client for it, and a kick-ass video player for it. (While I’m in Psychotic Tech Wish Land, I might as well add I’d like a Flash Player and a P2P client!)


Coming Real Soon Now: My FINAL Nokia Post

January 7, 2007

And it will be a fondle of the N800 goddammit!

I will be soon traveling to a location I will not disclose to put one in my paws and try the hell out of it.

All of you who are soon going to be doing likewise, heed this:

A virgin 770 is speedy. Once you get it home, start to really use it, put files on, take files off, add/remove programs, etc, etc, it eventually becomes as slow as a constipated bowel movement.

That is what my 770 is like right now.

It’s been like that after every OS update too! I don’t expect it to be any different with the Tablet OS 2007 the N800 is running. So I’m not going to be fooled by the speed of a virgin N800. Nor should you be.

I went and saw this YouTube video of the N800 in action. It demonstrates YouTube on the N800. Let’s see if: a) Nokia releases Tablet OS 2007 for the 770 and b) if that brings this near-capability to the 770.

After my last Nokia post, you poor bastards are on your own! None of you have any idea of how many dirty sons of bitches are out there touting for Nokia, not telling the truth about the 770. Don’t cry to me if you get one and then soon feel cheated.

And a word to Nokia: You probably have not liked one single word of what I have written. Tough fucking shit to all of you! You put out a crappy product — repeatedly, if I count OS “updates” (and I do!) — and I’ve told the truth. Had you put out an excellent product, you would have basked in my glowing words. So look in the mirror if you want someone to slap around. I’d tell you to stop releasing such shit, but I no longer care. You had my attention, wasted it, and will never have a chance at it again.

One question: does youtube work?

Youtube runs at about 1 or 2 fps, but the audio is great. So, if you don’t care about seeing the movie….

My Nokia N800 Internet Tablet

Imagine putting out a product that doesn’t work with one of the most popular sites on the entire planet.

They published a severely snarky comment I left there. And all comments there have to be looked at and approved before they are set loose on the public!

Good for them!

There is a Special Ironic Twist here too!

I was originally tap-tap-tapping this comment using the on-screen keyboard (it was actuallly working!) of the The Biggest Piece Of Shit Known To Man into the WordPress Create Post box — when poof! the entire pretend browser crashed and dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

Hey, what the fuck are all those Ds doing there!

That is what it is like using a Bluetooth keyboard with The Biggest Piece Of Shit Known To Man! Out of nowhere, the text will freeze, up will pop a dialog stating Bluetooth Device Disconnected, the CPU will whirwhirwhirrrrr, and when it all comes back to its wee retarded senses, I wind up with a zillion of the last letter typed!

Die Nokia 770 Die!!!

And those of you dumb enough to buy the N800: You Have Been Warned!

Note: I had to edit this post to insert Returns into those Ds so the blog would display them correctly. That’s the actual number of Ds I got!
