8 Years of Blogging

As it is by now tradition, here there’s my annual checkpoint on blog activities (former years’ digests: (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010). This is my 514th blog post, which sounds like a pretty unbelievably high pile of blabber… until you look at the numbers of certain overzealous tweeters (I won’t add any links…

Detachable Lenses Give Your Smartphone the Gift of Supersight

[Yes, another non-identity and non-cloud related post about gadgets: after all, it’s Saturday! But the next one will be a serious post, I promise] Being able at any time to pull out from your pocket a phone capable of capturing megapixel pictures & videos is awesome, but oftentimes I do miss the versatility that a…

Unboxing of the Zotac ZBOX ID34

[warning: no identity or technical content here] It’s so long that I don’t write a post about gadgets that the term disappeared from my tag cloud. Well, tonight after dinner I took a break from the usual grind and decided to pay homage to this ceremony that gadget lovers seems to have grown accustomed with,…

7 years of blogging

The anniversary is in fact in April, but every year (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) I am drifting forward.

[funny (if you are as sick as me)] Danger: Token Issuance!

Last week I was in Belgium, today I flew to the UK… it just made sense to spend the weekend at home in Italy. Yesterday I was walking home and I stumbled upon this road sign, indicating that part of the hill crumbled down on the road. I have seen that iconography all my life,…

[funny] Stolen Identity Video

PDC is slowly wrapping up, and it has been an awesome one. Identity was all over the place, and the interest you guys have show for the topic makes the months of behind-the-scenes hard work well worth it! Before resuming the “serious” steams of news around the content (there’s more to come!), let me share…

An example of trusted subsystem fail in meatspace

Here I am, stuck in Sydney airport for various cascade delays but awarded with the Gift of Free WiFi. I am coming back from a awesome 2 weeks in Australia and Nw Zealand, where I met great customers & partners, enjoyed the company of amazing friends & colleagues and drew few chuckles (while hopefully passing…

HTC * ( Touch Pro2 vs Universal )

[warning: no identity in this post] Ahh, immense joy. Today coming back from work I found a nice surprise: a brand new HTC Touch Pro2. Well, not exactly a surprise, since I spent every idle moment refreshing the FedEx tracking page; but it’s always a nice feeling to unbox a new gadget (as long as…

6 years of blogging

Usually (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008) in April I “celebrate” the anniversary of my blog creation with an anthology of posts from the last year. This time it just slipped through the cracks, April was an insanely busy month, hence i am doing it late and in reduced form; since i am doing it mainly…

Identity pun

Sorry guys, this will make you cringe but I can’t help myself: this came out while I was reharsing a presentation just minutes ago. Ah, and you’ll get it only if you’re identity-sick 🙂 A passive client enters a shop, and starts looking around. A salesperson approaches: “Sir, can I help you?” And the passive client:…
