Why Microsoft is No Apple

Monday, November 22nd, 2004

So you buy a $500 Personal Video Player, and you get home all excited to play with it and watch stuff, right? BZZT. Not exactly. Besides having to install apps from the included CD, you have to go online and download MORE Windows Media components, which according to Wired, can take 30 minutes, even on […]

Keyhole by Google

Friday, November 19th, 2004

Just saw the link from Google tonight. Keyhole (recently acquired by Google) allows you to zoom in on metropolitan areas around the world and see a bird’s eye perspective arial shot.

They’ve added a weird looking blue to the My Queue page at Netflix, and they’ve FINALLY added a Search box on the My Queue page (which was there a few years ago, but they took it away in the last redesign). I’m not really digging the blue, and there’s definitely some space issues (see area […]

Mark Cuban Wants Simultaneous Format Movie Releases

Wednesday, November 17th, 2004

I really don’t remember the last time I stepped foot in a theater, perhaps it was The Matrix Reloaded at the Cinerama in downtown Seattle. I’d like to see a lot more new releases, but just haven’t felt the rush to, knowing that DVD releases are only a few short months away and that I […]

Hidden Symbols in Logos

Tuesday, November 16th, 2004

Yes, I’m so easily amused. I see the FedEx logo probably everyday, but I’ve never seen the subliminal arrow until today, and of course a website pointed it out for me. Also above is the Big Ten logo, which added an 11th team a few years back, thus you can see a subliminal 11 in […]
