  • On Qwikster and Tone Deaf Moves [Mr.D/FB/IB]

    I understand the reasons for Netflix spinning off its DVD business as a discrete and separate entity. They recognize a sinking ship when they see one and, theoretically, this would enable them to eliminate tons of overhead (buildings, postage, the employees who check and stuff discs, etc.) increasing their profit margin for the foreseeable future.

  • Google+ [Mr.D]

    So I got in on Google + thanks to Julie Geng. More to come as I form an opinion.

  • Google Music Beta [F/MD]

    I got into the Google Music Beta! More info as I figure more out, but so far it seems great. My music is being uploaded to the cloud as we speak and I’ve been able to listen to it on my phone wherever I have a signal. It’s nice to have such a mobile library!

The name is intriguing, so I head over and see a program that actually looks pretty sick. You see, you can document your media library just by scanning the barcode using your webcam. […]

  • Mr. Digital: iPod Touch

    So my iPod Video decided that my right ear was incidental, so it stopped transmitting sound to my right headphone, unless I applied pressure is some sort of arcane, randomly determined direction at all times. Lucky for me, since I got it pre-owned off of eBay, I put a SquareTrade warranty on it, so they […]
