GPS Recording…

I read about this cool device Sony is building to allow mapping pictures one takes to locations. Very cool. http://www.dpreview.com/news/0608/06080202sonygpscs1.asp Now I also read on Engadget that it’s kind of a closed box. Meaning, as a developer you can’t get to the data. Does anyone have any experiences with that to share? Did anyone try to get…

Tech Ed early bird coming to an end

Today is the last day to benefit from the early bird discount and registrations are just going great. The descision to split into a DEV and an IT Pro event was definately the right one. It’s just amazing what you can do with the content if you all of a sudden have twice the amount…

Cleaning up my inbox, I came accross a link to this site: http://www.worldvaluessurvey.com/. Very interestin g map, don’t you think?

Conference calls

Conference calls are a reality in an international organization the size of Microsoft. This clip is nice parody on them: http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance/tag/confcall/search/microsoft/video/87706. Very recognizable! I’m not a big fan of phone calls in general and conference calls are even worse. In my opinion they only work when there are only few people (max. 4) who come prepared…

One swallow doesn’t make an OS

So four talented guys create YouOS and kaboom: here are the predictions that Google OS will make Windows obsolete. TechMeme then picks it up and the circus is flying. The article represents an opinion just like this blogpost represents my personal view. The opinion imho is laughable. This is the most funny bit: but you…
