Dumbest lawsuit EVER 3

This story caught my eye because it’s about Google, but man, the stupidity and ignorance of some people is astounding … Real estate agents launch defamation action against Google Two Victorian real estate agents have launched a defamation action against the search engine company Google.

The unsaid truths about the Microsoft/Yahoo deal

Naturally been reading a lot about this deal, mostly at work, but a little in my own time as well, and it’s quite interesting to see the varied coverage. Mainstream media are just fawning over Microsoft as usual, talking up how clever they are, but as usual, they’ve missed the point. Tech news has been ...

An 18-year-old today …

Charles Stross had an interesting post today that related to a long studied uni project that looks at the life experience of the new freshman class each year. It’s a very American study, so he took it further and thought about the British experience from his point of view and the view of British youth. ...

This might just be a musical plan …

Found out about this challenge recently, and it might just be something to do. Basically, a whole bunch of people have pledged to produce an album in 29 days, in the month of February.

On the death of certain technology …

I did say a few days back that the “y” key on my keyboard seemed to be dying … Suddenly, it seems quite fine. I see this old laptop that I’m using as something like a temperamental old man, seeming dead one day, then fine the next, and grumbly the whole way. Of course, without ...

Someone told me this was a public holiday …

Australia Day today, where we’re all supposed to wave flags and say “yay!” or something like that. Wanted to keep a lowish profile, but instead the misses had us all up early and off the Paddy’s Markets and Flemington. This was about what I thought it would be sadly … crowded, busy and crazy. I ...

In other news …

… the “y” key has pretty much given up and died on my keyboard. This is likely to be a problem, for, well, almost anything I want to type … It isn’t completely dead, as it works if I bash it hard enough. But in normal typing, it seems never to work. It’s an old ...

Probably the stupidest thing Steve Jobs has ever said

In all the hoopla last week at Macworld, and the launch of the MacBook Air, Steve Jobs was quoted on a different, but related topic, in the New York Times. And it has got to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard him say. He’s asked a question about Amazon’s new Kindle e-reader device, and ...

Get famous from MySpace in a whole new way

Read this story if you don’t know it yet. While on the one hand it’s quite amusing, because it shows that quite clearly, no matter how much kids think they’re computer savvy, many of them really don’t understand the power of social networking, but on the other hand, this kid is clearly a little turd ...
