I’m Turning Green

January 3, 2007

Lately I’ve been trying to do what I can to help out with this whole global warming thing. For one, I’ve just got myself a new Prius. This car is awesome. Not only is the technology of the car very cool, but the tech inside the car is quite nice too. It has the best […]

Sony Reader

January 2, 2007

I have been following the reader ever since I ran across it on the Sony site earlier this year. I set myself up on the mailing list to be notified when the unit finally started shipping. I never got that email though I did get another teaser email earlier in the year. I found out […]

Vista on MacBook Pro

December 17, 2006

Yeah, that’s right. I am actually writing this blog entry in IE7 running on Vista on my MacBook Pro. I’m running under BootCamp. I had also created a Vista environment in Parallels, but seeing that I only have 1G of RAM it was a little pokey at times considering I was trying to compile code […]

Verdict: Blackberry Pearl Rocks

December 11, 2006

After using my Pearl for the last few days, I have to say that I love this phone to death. Finally, after all this time I found a phone I like and works well for all the things I use it for. I even forgive the not-quite-as-good-looking-as-the-tmobile-one looks. And the Cingular theme has really grown […]

The Blackberry Saga Continues

December 9, 2006

I received my new T-Mobile Blackberry Pearl two days ago. I unpacked it and admired its beauty, turned it on, and went through the setup. Setup went without a hitch. Set up my email account on the Blackberry service with zero issues. The out of box experience (OOBE) was second to none, in my opinion. […]

Blackberry Pearl On Its Way

December 3, 2006

I am sadly still in search for the perfect cell phone that does it all well. After getting my Treo a while back I stopped using it. Because the software was bad? No. Because of the Verizon coverage issues? No. As silly as it sounds

Amendments? Why?

October 22, 2006

We had a voters night the other night, and we went through all the propositions on the ballot. It amazes me that so many of these propositions want to amend the state consititution. It doesn’t make any sense. All but one of the items had no place in our constitution. Most are things to do […]

WWDC of Days Gone By

August 13, 2006

Another WWDC Shot Originally uploaded by DarthSidious. This WWDC pic (while blurry) shows off two interesting things: 1) Phantom Menace was due out the next week and 2) That was Mac OS X before it had the Aqua interface. Still looks like Rhapsody. No, that version of AppearanceSample never shipped 😛 This was the year […]

WWDC 2006

August 13, 2006

I had the pleasure of attending WWDC this year. For those who don’t know, WWDC is Apple’s yearly World Wide Developer Conference. Of course, I imagine you probably have heard of it since Steve usually announces something new and cool there. This was my second time there as a spectator and not as a presenter. […]

Custom Window Frame in Carbon

August 6, 2006

I wrote this example ages ago, but it never saw the light of day. Today I decided to clean it up a bit and put it out there for others to play with. It’s a simple piece of code that shows how simple it is to put up a window with a custom frame that […]
