NBC: Leak Journeyman NOW! Early Reports NOT Good!

August 15, 2007

“Goddammit, this show should have been on ABC instead!”

This site links to several early reviews (spoilers inside!) of NBC’s Journeyman.

NBC is killing the show’s chances by not leaking it!

Update: Someone has a Journeyman blog!

Bah. The hell with e-billing! (I just got a paper statement from my new bank, despite having online account access! Now that is sick!)

Man, buy an iPhone and help kill mankind. How great is that?!

Appeasement In Our Time

Via Drudge:

Bishop urges Christians to call God ‘Allah’
Catholic leader believes it would help ease tensions between religions

Why the fuck is it always the West that has to accommodate others? Soon we’ll be told that self-defense is an act of hatred!

I’ve seen two more iPhones in the wild lately.

About two weeks ago I was scurrying along Canal Street and blocking the middle of the sidewalk — in broad frikkin daylight! — was some guy holding up his iPhone. He was accessing the Net on it!

Then last night on the subway, I see this huge bright screen playing video — it was a Suit watching some sort of financial video podcast on his iPhone!

To contrast with what used to be the most popular smartphone, the Treo — later last night on another subway line, I saw a woman looking at some built-in app on her Treo (probably Contacts). Then she put it away — and pulled out an iPod Mini to listen to music!

I can’t imagine an iPhone owner pulling out another device to listen to music, can you?

eBooks On iPhone: HarperCollins Kicks In

August 15, 2007

Book excerpts to be viewed on iPhone

NEW YORK – The publishing world is linking up to the iPhone.

HarperCollins announced Wednesday that it had set up a special link, http://mobile.harpercollins.com, that will allow browsers to view excerpts from more than a dozen new releases, including Michael C. White’s “Soul Catcher” and Michael Korda’s “Ike,” a biography of President Eisenhower.

“Reaching consumers on mobile devices and the Internet is increasingly important for publishers,” Brian Murray, president of HarperCollins Publishers Worldwide, said in a statement that noted the publisher has some 10,000 titles already digitized.

Closer, but not good enough.

We need an iRead program, Apple. We need real eBooks on the iPhone!

Nokia Fails To Plant Bomb In My Cellphone

August 15, 2007

Did I pay attention to the news that forty-six million Nokia batteries are being recalled as possible Finnish remote incendiary devices?

Hell no!

I noted it with some glee, though. I’m always glad to see Nokia kicked in its face. It’s called just desserts.

Then today I find out my crappy Thiefone has that model of battery!

So I go the Nokia recall page and enter the 26-digit identifier (correctly, I hope!) and get:

Product Advisory: Nokia BL-5C battery

Your battery is not among those manufactured by Matsushita between December 2005 and November 2006 and your battery will not be replaced.

No remote-control Mike Cane murder for you, Nokia! Back to renting an ex-Suojelupoliisi!

China’s Ferocious iPhone Clones

CECT P168 AKA iPhone Clone

cect triband

It’s on sale via ebay! See links in YouTube video descriptions.

Popular Science must-read article about China’s incredible counterfeit industry.

Hmmm… I wonder how much lead is in this clone?

I expect underneath it all is a version of Linux. Certain aspects of the UI are fugly just like Chinese Linux-based iPod clones I’ve seen.

I expect it to fall apart within a month of use. That’s if the battery doesn’t explode first.

Bellylaugh Of The Day: Wikipedia Revisionist Edition

August 15, 2007

Companies and party aides cast censorious eye over Wikipedia

And somebody from a computer traced to Democrat HQ edited a page on conservative American radio host Rush Limbaugh, calling him “idiotic”, “ridiculous” and labelling his 20 million listeners as “legally retarded”.

Hey, at least the rushtards can afford nice cars to live to in!

Update: Something is screwy over at the Guardian. The URL has broken, but if “Limbaugh” is plopped into their Search box, a hit for the article results. But, right now, clicking on that hit states the article doesn’t exist. Someone is doing some of their own revisionism over at the Guardian site…
