Nokia N95 Smartphone

April 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Forget the iPhone, I am drooling over this baby – the Nokia N95 smartphone.

The N95 has a 5 MegaPixel camera (oh, and by the way did you know that Nokia, not Canon, or Kodak, is the largest producer of digital cameras in the world?!!) which pretty much means I won’t need a seperate camera [...]

Online Outliner – To Do List Manager: Todoist

April 2nd, 2007 · 4 Comments

I am in love with Todoist, the simple todo list manager.
Todoist is a new kind of todo list, that’s useful and easy to use.

So what is it that makes Todoist better than the other to-do list managers out there?
Off the top of my head, the following features impress me the most:

A dead simple, but [...]

How I Was a Part of the Chipotle Marketing Campaign, and Never Knew It

March 18th, 2007 · 5 Comments

Profitable Marketing: McDonalds, Starbucks and Now is Time for Chipotles Growth Strategy is a look at how Chipotle focuses on word-of-mouth marketing to popularize itself.
Chipotle’s website is minimalist and a lot of fun, too. Their food is better. There is absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, that I crave more than their burrito-in-a-bowl. I [...]

How to Blog Anonymously and Independently on the Cheap

February 26th, 2007 · 3 Comments

This blog is anonymous. You might want to know why, and more importantly, how.
I did have another blog which is way more popular, and older, and respected. I still blog there, but increasingly this is my “preferred blog”.

Why I Unsubscribed from Gizmodo and Engadget

February 17th, 2007 · No Comments

I unsubscribed from Gizmodo and Engadget today. While I don’t expect this to change the internet, I wish it did.

Let me try and explain why I unsubscribed in the hope that you see my point, and you too unsubscribe:

They are not blogs any more
They are more like dedicated newspapers that cover the latest shiny “bling” [...]

Tags: reviews · technology, Mac OS X Compared to Windows XP

February 8th, 2007 · No Comments

“We pride ourselves in offering some of the most comprehensive comparisons between Apple and Microsoft’s operating systems on the Internet.”
Quite a commendable goal – will make deciding between Windows and OSX much easier. Or more difficult, if you are the kind who is confused by your brain, and prefer to decide with your “heart” instead.

Dear Boing Boing: Please Link Responsibly

January 13th, 2007 · No Comments

Alright, I have to get this out of my brain before it explodes with a distinct, loud “Boing!”.
Why doesn’t Boing Boing link to external pages in a sane manner?
Take a look at the article about Betelnut Girls in Taiwan.

Stop. Right there. Now, I were Boing Boing, I would write that as follows:
Take a look at [...]

How to Convince an Agnostic – from

January 7th, 2007 · No Comments

The Economist list of the top books of the year 2006 is interesting in itself, but what really got my gut was the following description of Richard Dawkins‘ latest book, “The God Delusion,” — as a wavering agnostic myself, maybe I should grab the book, and give it a half-chance of swaying me either way.

BookSwim: NetFlix for Books

January 4th, 2007 · 4 Comments

BookSwim promises an online book rental service that works like Netflix does. I am wondering if it will get off the ground, as much as whether it will be successful.

Books have a much lesser audience these days
There are a lot more books than Movies released every year
Readers have pretty specific tastes, especially when it comes [...]
