Never seen that on the London Underground

May 3, 2006

Ok so 1.) I’m not a Londoner and 2.) I’ve only ever commented in London at rush hour once before, but…. I’ve never seen them stop people at the entry barriers to elevate the pressure on the platforms. Very interesting (or annoying if you’re trying to get somewhere).

Saw this happen at Victoria underground station this morning (Circle and District Lines).

Windows XP on a Macbook Pro

April 12, 2006

Well it's happened. I think i felt a little sick whilst doing it but, i've installed XP on my Macbook Pro using Apple's Bootcamp

One thing which i'm reasured about is that Windows XP can't read HFS+ which means that it's not going to be doing any writing to my Mac OS X Partition. Nice. 🙂

Planet Earth

March 12, 2006

I’ve just been having a snoop on the BBC website trying to find info about the new Planet Earth Series, looks excellent.

They have a cool little flash app where you can explore and pull up video content on a particular area.

Nice but i recon a tie into Google Earth with BBC content just like the National Geographic does would have been better. I’m not saying that it’s not fantastic but i’m all for open sharing, would probably have pushed all the Google Earth users at the BBC too. Anyway check it out!

Nokia 770

February 14, 2006

I ordered Nokia 770 internet tablet on friday, and it’s supposed to be turing up today. Imagine my excitement when i turned up to work, to find a UPS van outside the front door… We’ll he’s been and gone and i still don’t have any hardware to show for it.

I decided to call UPS and find out if the guy just forgot to deliver it. Apparently it’s all fine and it’ll be delivered today. Better Be!

More details on my experience with this fantastic (on paper anyway) bit of Nokia kit will follow.

 Images Whiteblack-2 I somehow knew at the back of my mind that this would become a reality one day. The miniaturisation of components and the improvement in the manufacturing process has made the Pez MP3 Player a reality.
