Why I THINK I will buy an iPad (and don’t care if you do)

Just read the Boing Boing article again (Why I won’t buy an iPad (and think you shouldn’t, either). First of all that article reads like the worst kind of troll thread ever. But ok, I’ll bite :)

Incumbents made bad revolutionaries
I was a comic-book kid, and I’m a comic-book grownup, and the thing that made comics for me was sharing them

Gee, thats a nice story grandpa but we live in the real world where content publishers don’t want you to resell your shit.…

On the subject of Adobe and Flash and Apple

I just read a little something by Grant Skinner and what I don’t get is why not open source the player if it’s such a head ache for Adobe that some people make it seem? Because of course its profitable not to. See if it was open source there would be a LOT more “respect” throwed around than when you essentially lock your customers in and dont give them a choice. This is why I am frustrated with Adobe as with many other companies that has any form of monopoly, a history thereof or are part of an ogliopoly.…

hulk_ipad
Kapow bitches! The Hulk is sick of puny homans whining!
  1. “It’s just a big iPod Touch”
    Yeah? So? What were you expecting? Mac OS X + touch? So you’re telling me that if you could use your fingers on your laptop…that would be better than using the mouse? HAHA PUNY BRAIN!
  2. “It’s got no camera”
    Hulk SAD about this too. Was expecting to cyber with She-Hulk….he he. But will probably be in next version. HULK IS HULK!
  3. “No multitasking!”

Speed up Safari 4

Safari Icon

Safari 3 started up a whole lot faster than Safari 4 final and it’s been annoying me up until now. Disable some of the rather useless eyecandy for Safari 4 to restore the more speedier Safari:

Bring back old progress bar, this I don’t do for speed but because the old one actually showed PROGRESS which the new one does not

defaults write com.apple.Safari DebugSafari4IncludeToolbarRedesign -bool FALSE No go, doesn’t work :(

Disable bookmarks cover flow. Who uses bookmarks anyway?

Weekend LAN

Weekend Lan

I’ve had a great weekend playing some computer games with my friends. After fucking around with Cider Ports and CrossWeaver for Games and Urban Terror I had enough and this morning I got up and installed Boot Camp. Both Martin and Jörgen did the same, Jörgen however ended up with some trouble and it took us basically the whole day of fiddeling around to get everything working. But this time we are ready for the next LAN.

Apple and Mac might be great for a lot of stuff but unfortunately it is still true that if you want a hassle free gaming experience you have to go Windows.…

Use Mac VNC client on Windows VNC servers

If you find Windows Remote Desktop annoying with the constant logging in/out (and don’t care to much to patch it for concurrent connections) you’re most likely going to go with VNC for that Windows install of yours.

Here is a tip, if you are running a VNC install on your Windows machine, say TightVNC, you can then in Finder just go to the menu and select “Go” and “Connect to server” (or just do COMMAND+K). You can then type in vnc://your.ip.adress:port

OneSwarm

This is actually a lot more interesting than I first thought. It IS really anonymous since my IP is never exposed to anoyone else than the friends I add. If I add a friend, Kalle and Kalle adds a friend, Totte then Totte will never see my IP adress and will never know if he is downloading a file from me or Kalle  (or some other friends friend for that matter). This way you truly do have a circle of trust where you are protected.…

Boot Camp experience

Today I did the unspeakable act of installing Windows onto an Apple machine.
It made me feel like a dirty little girl is what it did..is what it did.

Anyway, the process wasn’t exactly painless since I after the first install got the “no disk error” which appearantly popped up because I was supposed to somehow figure out that I was supposed to re-format the partition that the boot camp guide pre-formated for me (uhm..). After I reformated (that is, deleting the partition that boot camp made and re-created it during win setup) I tried again and this time got another error message.…
