  1. hi, hope this hasn't been discussed before ... this is an instruction on how to create an idisk/.mac replacement; not everything does work, though (like sync between more macs) -> http://www.tnpi.biz/computing/mac/tips/idisk/

    Gogole.com ;)

    hi, it just occured to me, that when i am typing very fast, i type sometimes gogole.com and not google.com ... when you do this for the german google you are redirected to a blank site (just '...'). it used to be not a blank site, but a site from some guy who offered stupid advertising ... but when you do this for gogole.com (instead of google.com), you are redirected to google.com. funny, huh ? (well, not really funny, but interesting. they are reading my spelling mistakes )
  8. hi, thought i share this really interesting article about 30 years of personal computer development. and no, it's not just about sales figures as described in the headline. quite funny to see all companys going bankrupt till just apple and ms are left ... i didn't know in which forum to post this topic, so feel free to move if it doesn't fit ... http://arstechnica.com/articles/culture/total-share.ars/1
  9. hi, this is a really great video about the future of media and your very own privacy ... it's 8 minutes worth invested, trust me ... *still impressed* http://www.idorosen.com/mirrors/robinsloan.com/epic/
