Firefox 1.0 is coming

November 08, 2004 at 09:11 AM

Firefox 1.0 is finally coming out tomorrow. It's been a beta product this whole time and it's still lightyears ahead of Internet Explorer. It's easy to use, lightweight, intuitive, and actually gets web standards right. If you were using it, you'd see this site exactly as it was intended, and you'd be able to see the cosmetic upgrades I'll be making sometime soon.... Continue reading

ESPN Motion for Firefox and Mac

September 23, 2004 at 02:14 PM

Earlier this week Mike Davidson announced ESPN Motion for Mac was being released, and cheers were heard around the world. There was however many questions on why if Mac Motion was made possible "by utilizing Flash MX video and plenty of fancy DHTML and CSS goodness," why wasn't it available for the non-IE PC users out there. But Mike was noncommittal, saying he couldn't comment and that we'd have to wait and see. I waited.... Continue reading

More stock footage? Samsung joins Dell and Gateway

September 03, 2004 at 03:38 PM

The two ads above were pointed out way back in July by Engadget. Apparently Dell and Gateway used the same stock footage for their back-to-school campaigns. Same girl, same stupid hat and necklace, same everything. Well just now I noticed on ESPN.com that Samsung must've been feeling a little left out, so they decided to use the same exact girl/photo in a small Flash ad for digital cameras. That's some nice work by the... Continue reading

FSU discovers iTunes

September 01, 2004 at 09:31 AM

In an effort to prevent illegal file sharing on campus, Florida State University is on the verge of finalizing a deal with Apple Computer, Inc. -- a deal that would provide free iTunes software to students and allow them to download music for 99 cents per song. Wow. FSU struck quite the groundbreaking deal with Apple. I guess they were worried they might be confused with a real academic institution and not just a party/football... Continue reading

Nerds against Bush

September 01, 2004 at 08:53 AM

Apparently web developers do leave the house once in a while, as evidenced by this shot of someone protesting Bush with HTML code. This guy must be a Dreamweaver user or something, because we all know that in proper XHTML all tags must be in lowercase. There's no way his site validates. (From Matt Haughey)... Continue reading

iMac G5 revealed

August 31, 2004 at 09:06 AM

Apple has officially unveiled the much anticipated/speculated iMac G5. Pretty unspectacular. A similar styling as the gorgeous (but overpriced) Cinema Displays but white instead of silver. It appears to be very slim considering the power and capabilities, but I still think you're better suited purchasing a nice 17 inch PowerBook if you want portablitly or a Power Mac G5 if you want power. Or you could buy a similarly equipped PC for 2/3rds the price.... Continue reading

The age of AquariAss

August 20, 2004 at 08:51 AM

A couple really cool aquariums that we're on Engadget the last couple weeks. The AquariAss aquarium/toilet is pretty funny (click the link below to see an image of that) but the Moody Aquarium Washbasin pictured at left is actually really cool.... Continue reading

Olympics website linking policy

August 16, 2004 at 03:33 PM

This is pretty hilarious. Jay Allen (whose MT-Blacklist v2.0 I am patiently desperately waiting for so I can deal with all this damn comment spam) who discovered the 2004 Olympics hilarious linking policy. Some of the funnier tidbits: Your link text must say "ATHENS 2004"Not associate the link with any imageYou must send a request letter (through regular old mail) to let them know that you’re linking, for how long, and why. Now just for... Continue reading

I must have this TV

August 10, 2004 at 03:31 PM

For the longest time I've been wanting a nice, moderately large LCD rear project HDTV. I admired the Sony Grand Wega but lately the more I read/shop the more I've been looking at DLP sets. Well me and Christina were at Fry's Saturday trying to replace a laptop power cable the damn dog chewed through and we stumbled upon the Samsung HL-P5085W. Even Christina was awed, and she's not nearly as easily aroused by... Continue reading

The MPx continues to beckon me

August 03, 2004 at 11:11 AM

I've already mentioned before that the Motorola MPx is going to someday be my new best friend, and now more information/images are coming to light. Mobinaute has the world's longest review accompanied by hundreds of pictures. Unfortunately the whole damn thing is in French, so I've got no freaking idea what it says. Who cares, it sure looks pretty.... Continue reading
