1. Wide spread WiFi

    Yeah, I post a lot on WiFi. I like WiFi. Anyhow, here's a very interesting overview of the "WiFi market" as it is shaping up in public spaces like coffee shops, airports and hotels. The pricing structure still irks me, although I myself have not really figured out a better alternative.

  2. Just what we need... a hybrid SUV.

    Ford has decided to sell a hybrid Escape. I despise SUV's, and the current snow storm is a testament to why they're bad. People who drive them do not respect others. They also believe that their four-wheel drive gives them a license to speed in bad conditions. They promptly spin out and cause accidents.

    At least this will reduce emissions, but I still don't like it. ;)

  3. I've heard of a TV in the bathroom, but this is ridiculous.

    I noticed over at Gizmodo a nice little jacuzzi. Called La Scala it sports a media center. Personally I've been avoiding technology to an extent at home. But if I can get one of these in my apt I might actually use it.

  4. What does it mean to be a 'geek?'

    Over the years I've fit into the category of geek pretty well. I never had a problem being called a geek nor have I denied it. I have a cluster of friends who adamantly argue that I am not. I say I am. In any event, I saw this interesting take on things in some other guy's rant.

  5. Interesting chip going into the PS3.

    I have to excuse myself to start this post off. I am not a specialist at things like this. I understand it to be difficult, and I recognize the statements made over at that this is just marketing hype.

    But to bluntly put it, if Sony can pull off even half of this hyped up promise it'll be an amazing jump in technology. Although it could just be my affinity for modular things that makes me interested.

    With the PS 3, Sony will apparently put 72 processors on a single chip: eight PowerPC microprocessors, each of which controls eight auxiliary processors.

    Using sophisticated software to manage the workload, the PowerPC processors will divide complicated problems into smaller tasks and tap as many of the auxiliary processors as necessary to tackle them.
