YouTube “Flips Out”, Nokia E71x, April Fools!, To Linux or Not to Linux

Court Jester

Court Jester

Note: The Youtube home page appears to be normal, you won’t notice anything is different about the site until you click on a video (it can be any video).

Nokia E71x

April Fools Day

Happy April Fools Day! Let’s get things started the right way with this prank you can play on friends, family and coworkers. Muahahaha!


I have long been curious about Linux. I have been hesitant to get my feet wet because I am afraid it will be too complicated and time consuming to learn and use. I am really not that satisfied with my current OS (Windows); but it runs out of the box, without a lot of input from me. I guess I want the best of both worlds: I want my OS to run well without me having to be too involved in the process (Windows), yet I want to be able to have a customized system that has the features I deem necessary, and, more importantly, said system should not have/do things I don’t want (Linux). What should I do? Why must I always be faced with these tough decisions? Maybe if I take a nap, this problem will go away – when I awake, everything will be as right as rain! While I try to figure my next move, I think I’ll take another look at this Linux promotional video that I like: Linux Promo Video

Palm Pre Battles

Palm, the maker of the soon to be released Pre, has put all its eggs in one basket. The failure of the Pre  would sound a death knell for Palm. Despite a gloomy economic forecast, the Pre is poised to turn the tide for Palm, where an outdated OS and inefficient business practices led to huge losses in revenue. There seems to be a lot of support and goodwill in both the business and developer community towards Palm; many developers are excited about creating features and applications for the Pre’s new operating system, WebOS.
