The Calm before the Storm

So since my girlfriend is going in for surgery next week, we decided it was a good idea to get out of town this weekend so we could relax for a couple of days. Even though Kamloops wasn’t our first choice, it was the best place to get an affordable suite with a hot tub. […]

PayPal Mobile Launched

PayPal has launched its mobile payment platform, called, of course, PayPal Mobile. You need to register a phone and create a PIN. PayPal uses an automated system to call you on the phone and verify the PIN, and the phone is then usable. To send a person to person payment, you either text the payment […]

BF2: Mine and Mine 2

Even if you don’t play Battlefield 2 you’ll still enjoy these movies. Created entirely in the game and using some hilarious sound tracks and voice overs from such comedies as Monty Python, these are truly entertaining. The first one is quite a bit funnier than the second one, so I actually suggest you watch Mine […]

Screengrab – Why I love Firefox

Firefox is superior to other browsers not only because it’s faster, more secure, and more standards compliant, but also because it supports extensions.

Origami UMPC runs Linux!

The Ultra Mobile PC, Microsoft’s new ultra-ultra-portable personal computer, apparently has a few new tricks up its sleeve that Microsoft neglected to tell anyone. In their testing of a prototype UMPC, UMPCOrigami found that Samsung’s engineers, awaiting the “official†operating system from Microsoft, had taken matters into their own hands and installed Linux in Windows’ […]

Blog’s back!

It’s been a while but finally my blog is back online. Stupid DNS changes… Here’s what I’ve been dying to post about over the last week: Aren’t you tired of all of those people out there trying to grab all of these fake friends online? It’s all about how many people can I pretend to […]

Google reaches beyond Earth

Google is not satisfied with just indexing this Earth we live on. Not only do they map our lovely little planet using Google Maps, but they have also mapped the Moon and Mars! It’s pretty neat; the moon map marks the landings that we’ve done in the past, and Mars is mapped out using Infrared. […]
