I have relied on amazon.com for my supply of books for as long as I can remember. Textbooks when I moved to New York for graduate school. Cookbooks when I moved in with a guy. Self help books when I broke up with another one. Amazon has been there for me in all the big moments in my life, knows my dirtiest secrets, is the first one to find out if I am going through a weird raw food or understanding men or understanding the universe phase, helps me sell some books when I am low on cash (that didn't go so well because last moment I would keep the books and refund the buyers), and knows what...

February 18, 2009 is the deadline to convert to digital television. What are you talking about, I never asked for digital? Well that is a little complicated for this article; (see www.ntia.doc.gov) however it is either go digital or go dark. And no, you don’t have to buy a new television.

Now if you have cable or satellite you have no problem, your service company will deal with the problem. Even if you have an older television supposedly with digital the clarity is much better.

However if you are like me and still only watch the free stuff 2-13 (well free had a good... Read More

What would you do if you knew with certainty that the world would end in less than five years? I mean, not just speculation or conjecture -- but what if you really knew the exact date on which our entire civilization would cease to exist? How would it change your life?

I know what I’d do. First, I would tell my rather annoying boss to shove it (which would undoubtedly lead to my eventual termination), withdraw all of the money from my bank account and head to Europe to party and travel and just hitch hike around. I would probably make Amsterdam my headquarters, journeying from... Read More

Time Warner will possibly be the first high-speed Internet provider to switch to a totally new pricing structure.

The company is set to begin a trial run in Beaumont, TX in which it will sell high-speed Internet access in a tiered structure based on how much data is download per month.

I have a bad feeling about this. Internet access has become so cheap that companies like Time Warner are looking for new ways to increase profits.

This tiered pricing structure sounds disturbingly similar to the way cell phone minutes are priced. I don’t even use Time Warner, but... Read More

“I got the sense that people weren’t as thrilled as we were with the Macbook Air, so I spoke with John Ive (Apple’s Chief Designer) and he told me about a Black Project even I didn’t know was going on.” Indeed, the Macworld community left out a depressed sigh at the sight of the Macbook Air, hailed by the computer company as the ‘World’s Thinnest Notebook.” When Jobs noticed that they weren’t impressed, he was up to the new challenge.

“And there’s one more thing,” uttered Jobs on Tuesday during a press conference... Read More

Le mobile iPhone tant médiatisé depuis plusieurs mois devrait révolutionner le monde de la téléphonie mobile, dit-on. Sa sortie en France le 29 Novembre vendu par Orange qui a obtenu le contrat exclusif du dernier Apple, est un franc succès. 12 000 modèles i-phone se sont écoulées le premier jour. D'après Didier Lombard, le PDG de France Telecom, il estime en vendre 50 000 à 100 000 exemplaires d'ici la fin de cette année 2007. Le nouveau produit haut de gamme (749 euros pour un iPhone "nu") est-il une révolution technologique? Le design, l'accès internet, le juke box mp3, le stockage... Read More
The quest for fire and the curve of the wheel is among some of man’s most advent industrial realizations; they have stood as the chief instruments that have aligned the technological revolution. We have come a long way in a few years and I can’t seem to remember when it all changed. Not so long ago there was no television and very few conveniences, everybody sat around the table and earnestly listened to the radio with such intensity as if you were looking at a great movie or watching a grand play it was magical, and most mystifying to say the lease. In particular the Joe Louis and Max Schmeling's... Read More
