Tech Lineup

I love the portable technologies that I own.
Tablet- 2gb RAM, 1.60ghz processor (Intel core 2 duo), 120gb hard drive at 5400rpm, Windows Vista Business
Laptop- 4gb RAM, 2.4Ghz Processor (AMD Turion 2 Ultra), 500gb Hard Drive at 7200rpm, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Netbook- 1.5gb RAM, 1.60Ghz processor (Intel Atom n270), 150gb Hard Drive at 5400rpm, Fedora Linux version 10
then the mobiles:
Palm Centro, Motorola Droid, PSP-1000, Nintendo DS (original), iPod Touch (1st gen, 8gb)

I have a wide range of access and things to try
I'm admin on the netbook and laptop. The Tablet is my school computer.

I may recieve an old 1st-factory-week Xbox Original from a friend though and will modify it into a Linux Desktop:)

Tech Use

I wish more highschools would start using technology. I mean ours and St.Ursula are the only high schools that I know of that give the Students thier own computers and allow them to access technology. I know the future will totally be technology based and see the way some schools teach (stone-age writing utencils and books, no tech whatsoever) and believe that those schools will never truely succeed unless the kids WANT to be there, ACTUALLY LIKE school, and are TAUGHT WITH THE FUTURE IN MIND. If I school doesn't have any of the Jesuit or Marianist traits in teaching, in my opinion of course, I see that it may fall to the wayside. Yes, it will exist, but they won't be teaching with the future in mind and will be technologically outdated.

once again i was looking at linux equipped laptops just for the heck of it and realized that i already have a great quality hp entertainment laptop that haS a 17.3" screen and a classic Acer Aspire One netbook. of course the laptop has Windows 7 and the netbook has good old Fedora 10 (installed via me).
i should only look at those things if i am to do reviews....


this mobile blogging app is great. too bad it took me like 5 minutes to remember my password. epic fail

Good old timewasters

Don't you guys out there love time wasters like the daft punk keyboard music mixers?
There's always something great to do to waste your time (Besides WoW) at any moment. But hey, if you kill time, you kill time.


Well I finally got the Motorola Droid. I won't post any specifications yet as I have not had it for long. I will agree with gabe that the default facebook application js garbo and won't even do chat or tag photos like the ipd touch version will, so I'll have to find a way to replace or fix that.
I love the Droid so far (1.8 days I've had it so far) and it's a great 8gb-bigger-than-my-ipod Mp3 player alternative as well as a great utility to get things done (with docs to go by dataviz).
I do believe Google should make an intuitive, editing-capable Google Docs app for thier own Android OS though, it would seem natural. The WoW character stat checker and realm checker does come in handy as well as the Astro file browser, Pandora internet radio, Seesmic for Android, and mobile. If you want to use it as a mobile mp3 but don't want to buy new mp3s from itunes, you can easily sync it like an ipod with doubleTwist ( db auto-detects your iTunes library and all the movies, music and pictures in it. Then you can use those items in that library on any device (blackberry, android, windows mobile, nokia, etc) and it will automatically convert the iTunes formatted (DRM or non-DRM) movies and music and copy them to the device.
The Droid rocks. Did i mention that yet?


Yes, I know that I don't really keep this blog up to date but I'm not really a totally-consistent blogger, now am I? Anyway, a fellow geek-turned-kinda-blogger Gabe is starting his own blog now and I have found the inspiration to start writing again.
Let's start this post with something thats not even tech or book related shall we?
What is your personal definition of Inspiration? Where do your opinions take you in your life? Could your emotions or lifestyle have an effect or limitation on what your inspirations are?
