When your computer crashes

A friend has been having a lot of problems with his computer. I happened to come across this today and thought it would be worth sharing. It’s an ad touting the Lenovo one button data restore feature. I’m not a Lenovo fan, but this looks cool. Creepy? Yes. Funny? I think so….

VMWare’s sucky patch

VMWare just pwned themselves by releasing an update that is disallowing any process with a start date of 08-12-08 to launch. More info here. I am an unapologetic VMWare fan, but this is a huge screwup. Tomorrow will be interesting. This occurs within 24 hours of Gmail going down for an hour. Anyone think too […]

The Cherrypal

I read an interesting article about the Cherrypal, a 2 watt green “Cloud Computer”. I wrote about my opinion of Cloud Computing in a previous post. Personally, I think the Cherrypal is overpriced. The limitations of this device don’t justify $250. Once these devices are under $100 and the applications available in the cloud mature […]

WordPress for iPhone

WordPress now has a free iPhone application that allows blog updates from the iPhone. This post was created on my iPhone. Very cool!
