The other day I noticed something strange at sugarsync.com:
The home page of sugarsyncs 5gb (currently) cloud storage service shows an image of it's software running on three devices. The first, an Apple MacBook Pro, the second is an Apple iPhone and it would appear that in an effort to not be completely Apple biased, is a tablet of some description (what appears to be a samsung galaxy tab).
But take a second look, I've shown the whole page below, with part of it at full size. Can you seen that? As far as I'm concerned they've just photoshopped the iPad app into the other tablet...
C'mon SugarSync that's your iPad software, why not just show the iPad itself?! lol.
At the bottom I've deliberately shown a crop of the top left corner from an iPad at a similar lo res. I'll take this opportunity to recommend the iPad, it's a phenomenal device!
Amazingly, when I opened Facebook today I happened across the weirdest coincidence. A friend from high school had posted a photo about floating a paper boat down a river with his son. The the feed directly above his photo was a random image from a random website I once liked, showing candles made in the shape of origami boats of exatly the same type! What are the chances of that?
I've heard, that all the stars in the universe will eventually burn out, leaving the universe in darkness. This will however take a long time. How long? We'll, if you were to represent one year with a single atom, there wouldn't be enough atoms in the universe to count the years until the universe will go dark.
Recently I was lying in bed in the middle of New Delhi, India, unable to sleep, my son, five years old, lay next to me and although his sister and mother had achieved a blissful sate of slumber, like me, he was afflicted with insomnia.
He leaned over and whispered in my ear; "tickle my tummy please daddy", so I did.
It took about 20 minutes of stroking and tickling until he was asleep. That was all he needed.
I thought about how in the scope of the universe this was such an un believably small period of time my poor brain couldn't even begin to conceive it. Despite the knowledge of how fleeting this moment of time was, as I watched my sons eyes fall closed, I still could no help but be washed with an intense feeling of utter significance.
I get asked a lot of the time which Graphics program I think is best: Coreldraw or illustrator?
I use Illustrator but I also really like Coreldraw. Why Illustrator? One word: MAC. I love OS X, but Coreldraw although a great program, is not killer enough for me to be forced to use windows, plus there are too many other great killer Mac programs you can't get on windows, so that's it for me. But Corledraw hasn't lost yet, it's a great program...
Ever have one of those days when your stocks plummeted? I tried my hand once in a bit of speculation on the stock market, sold my regular stock and bet on some good financial results from one of the darlings of wall street. Unfortunately the company failed to reach it's targets and I lost a very very large sum of money (oh well). So you can imagine that being a bit of a stock noob, I got a little worried when I looked up my stocks and found this...Read more: Funny Stock quotes
For quite a long time I have been holding back on facebook, I don't want to subject my friends to over-enthusiastic posts about my iPad. One of the reasons for this is that in the group of people who don't have an iPad there exists two subsets of people called "Apple haters" and "Sick of Apple Newsers". Some of my friends happen to fit into this group. Really I could post every day how my iPad makes me giggle about how amazing and useful it is, but they would soon get bored of it and start to resent me.
But, well, I have to say it somewhere... the iPad is amazing! No, it's ubermazing! I really cannot recommend it enough and I think everyone should have one.Read more: iPad gush, why you/everyone should own an iPad.
I had to ROFL. Many of you know fail blog, a great source of amusement showing us the height of idiociy. Imagine my surprise when I download the blogs poorly executed iPad app which conceals the content with the user interface. Epic fail.
The above picture should read "The other children?, They tasted wonderful", you can see the bottom line but the top line is totally obscured. This would likely affect allot of content. The actual fail blog app fails. Classic.
After using it I noticed even more fails, suffice as to say it has now been deleted from my iPad, but not before I snapped a few more pics of faildom.....Read more: Failblog iPad app fail
