Shakespeare in Klingon

Tired of studying Shakespeare in English?  Want to get in touch with your inner Trekkie? Mark your calendars. On Sept 25, Shakespeare will be performed in Klingon. More info at the Washington Post.

Goodbye Blackberry Hello iPhone

It was only a matter of time.  I walked around with a BB 8830 and an iPod Touch for the better part of a year.  At first, I let the BB keep up with addresses and calendar and even apps.  As I discovered the quality and diversity of iPhone apps and the limitations of the memory footprint of the BB 8830 and the inability of BB OS to run anything from Micro SD card, I gradually began to treat the BB as if it were a dumb phone.  When I got my iPad, I appreciated iPhone apps even more. 

 

Then iPhone 4 came out and I realized just how far behind the tech curve I had fallen.  I couldn't take pictures with the BB (no camera) or receive MMS messages (I had to use a gimpy VZWpix web site which was summarily deleted without warning for lack of use every 180 days).  Calendar entries were associated with an email address and I had to choose one each and every time I created an entry.  And guess what?  Pick the wrong one and Missing Sync wouldn't push the info to my iPod Touch or the rest of my Apple gear.

This astounding breakthrough will revolutionize scientific sounding gobbledespeak for years to come...

My next phone?

I'm a frequent poster over at Brighthand and Macrumors (r0k).  In recent months, I've been trying to decide what phone will replace my aging BB 8830.  Will it be an iPhone 4?  Will it be some Android phone?  I stumbled across an ars article that says the future doesn't bode very well for Apple's iOS market share relative to Android if they don't get iPhone out from under At&t.

I must admit that if an iPhone were available on Verizon, I'd be done thinking and already have one by now... 

Have a suggestion?  Fire away in the comments...

Apple Made Another Boo Boo ... 60% off 40,000 Mac Minis?

Macrumors is reporting that Apple has decided to honor the 40,000 orders for Mac Minis placed in China while its site showed the incorrect price.  That's 40,000 Mac Minis at 40% of retail.  How much are you willing to bet ebay doesn't get saturated with these things in the coming months?

 

Butterfly Robot?

I ran across a story over at Engadget about a realistic butterfly robot.  Apparently the thing is powered by batteries inside the lid of the jar.  Not enough is shown in the video to convince me this is real.  If they took off the lid and changed the batteries during the video I'd be more convinced.  Judge for yourself...

Apple Made a Boo Boo... Make it all Better...

A hilarious product has been announced for all you iPhone 4 users out there who insist on "holding it wrong"...

Codswallop Dictionary (not quite) Word of the Day: Refudiate

It seems Shakespeare's poodle has tried to coin a new word.  Ok, I'll bite...

 

Refudiate (v):  When a marginally literate politician tries to express repudiation via twitter but doesn't have a command of the english language.

The Kids are back from Europe

Chris and Liz are back from their concert tour in Europe.  It sure has been quiet around here this past month, but it sure is great to have them back!

The both enjoyed themselves immensely and learned a lot of music.  I will post details for their local concert when they become available.

 

The N States of America

The arrest of Russian agents this past week got me nostalgic for the good old days of American Imperialism.  Wouldn't you know, Futurity.org was thinking about world domination (starting with Puerto Rico) as well.  Now you can see what the US flag would look like for any number of states up to 100.  Only megalomaniac patriots should proceed...
