You’re a Nobody Unless Your Name Googles Well

So when Ms. Wilson, now 32, was pregnant with her first child, she ran every baby name she and her husband, Justin, considered through Google to make sure her baby wouldn’t be born unsearchable. Her top choice: Kohler, an old family name that had the key, rare distinction of being uncommon on the Web when paired with Wilson. “Justin and I wanted our son’s name to be as special as he is,” she explains.

Emphasis added by me. Gag me with a fucking spoon.

Then gag yourself with a fucking spoon.

OQO Model 02 HSDPA mod: Part 1

As you probably know, I’m a fan of the OQO Model 02! But I’m also a fan of HSDPA…

Unfortunately, so far the Model 02 is only available with EVDO from either Sprint or Verizon, and despite getting the SERO discount two weeks ago, I was not very excited with the idea of paying another bill beyond my existing T-Mobile and Cingular at&t accounts. So what’s a girl to do? Well, just mod her Model 02 and replace EVDO with HSPDA, of course :)

And that’s exactly what I’ve done! Take a look at the pictures of my mod and keep your eyes peeled for more information soon…

She never, ever leaves her tools alone. Nothing satisfies her unless she can get at its guts and mod it. Good for her!

LimeWire Adds Ubuntu Support

The popular filesharing application LimeWire released Debian packages for Ubuntu. The latest LimeWire release is tested on Ubuntu Edgy and Kubuntu Edgy/Feisty, and both the free and pro versions are available for download.

I’m using Frostwire these days, but it’s good to know this alternative for Linux now exists.
