My very own PDA "history"

2009-01-25 11:31:48

I got a bit nostalgic when i thought about my old Palm Pilot... so i searched for my old PDAs and lined them up against my iPhone :)



I always wanted a PDA to play with, even though I never needed them :) (Why would you need a PDA as a 10-year-old anyway?)

  • Casio Digital Diary SF-4000
  • Palm Pilot Professional (Which.. didn't quite survive me, so the one pictured is my brother's Palm Pilot Personal :) )
  • Palm Vx (The best Palm ever, imho. Let's see how the Palm Pre turns out...)
  • iPhone 8 GB (Finally my dream came true about merging mobile phone and PDA .. why ever it took so long to get this done)


Hopefully i can soon add an iPhone 3G to that list. This would make my current iPhone the shortest-lasting "PDA" in my collection :)
Hey, we have Signatures !!! Great, isn't it ? ;)

I completely missed the struts 2 release 6 days ago (i guess it didn't even make it to slashdot?) - so maybe struts 2 is not completely dead?

This release should contain two of my patches for the portlet plugin: WW-2678 and WW-2720. So i should finally head back and try if my application runs with a released version :)

I just discovered that google is stopping development of google notebook - which i really like to use (since recently). - That's perfectly fine with me .. at least they just stop development (i haven't seen any improvements for a while anyway :) ) and don't put it offline .. but.. what strikes me is this:

In the announcement about stopping development they list a few alternatives.. like 'Google Bookmarks'. So .. what happens when you log in to google bookmarks ?



"Check out a better way to organize your bookmarks using Google Notebook" (I never understood how you could replace google bookmarks with notebook .. but anyway..)

I always thought google bookmark would die first.. since this message appeared for quite some time now .. so what went wrong here ? (i guess google bookmark just fits better into the search wiki and google web history features ?)

Why We Suck

2009-01-14 20:41:58


If you think you can only get all your news from The Daily Show - you're wrong.. You can occasionally also find good books advertised on it :)

Why We Suck is Denis Leary's take on people's laziness and stupidity and is a great read if you don't mind his writing style :)

So if for example you are pissed about people complaining about the winter (or anything else) you will find some fun common sense opinions in this book:

A few years back, doctors announced the "discovery" of a new disease called SAD - seasonal affective disorder. Victims claim the symptoms begin sometime in September and often last until March or April and include depression, despair, misery and guilt combined with a desire to oversleep or extreme napping as well as overeating.

I'm sad to say that - in THIS doctor's estimation - SAD is not a disease. It's called WINTER, asshole. It happens every year right after the leaves fall off the goddam trees.

And you are not a victim - you are a fat, human sloth who wants to suck down boxes of Twinkies [..]
[..]
Here's my prescription: get off the fucking couch and buy a set of skis. Or skates. Better yet - buy both. And don't eat the yellow snow.

Case closed.
[..]
I'm tired of the denial. I'm tired of the fat the loud the lazy and the stupid.
