Notes on life, art, photography and technology, by a Danish dropout bohemian.
When you drink the water, remember the river.
I never could quite get mine to talk to my router. My WiFi was running a different encryption to the one the XO wanted to run, never found anything other than peer to peer, then I could not navigate the XO from my PC or the PC from my XO. I need to get a USB to Ethernet.There are some fun tools and gizmos on it. The keypad is adequate, but the touch pad went crazy a couple of times.For the target deployment these things need to be rock solid and easy to use. I didn't get that feeling with the G1G1 release.Actually I've been so busy I forgot I had it!
So which one is kewler, the XO or the new MacBook Air?Stupid question. The XO, of course.
Sure, but the Newton is still King.
I don't know about today's computers in general. Something is wrong when you are no longer expected to wear a white lab coat and shiny leather shoes when operating a computer.People have no respect for their machines. Must be Microsoft's fault.
Not to mention no neckties. And that "gooey" operating system. Disgraceful.
Wow! This is gotta be awesome!

MAchines have become part and parcel of our life. Nowadays, computers are far safer than the older ones. Thats why dun nedd to wear does stuffs. Period.
I wouldn't dream of using my computer without wearing a lab coat, or at least a white shirt and tie. Also I carefully wipe down the whole computer every morning and oil the hinges. It's matter of respect, and a good computer can last twenty years.
So, Eolake, you wear a lab coat?! So it means that beautiful girls can't be nude infront of the computer? Personally, i don't see clothings as means of respect. But taking good care of it is obviously respectfully. :-)
Hey guys, don't forget that the shirts must have short sleeves, and be equipped with a suitable pocket protector. And the hair! Crew cut, nothing less.
$400? *AND* it'll donate one to a person in need?I want one! I double-want one!Triple-want with sprinkes, whipped cream, and a cherry on top!:-)"So it means that beautiful girls can't be nude infront of the computer?"The beauty of beautiful girls is all the uniform they need in my opinion...Especially in front of MY computer! Or better yet, right on my laptop.8-p~~~But ugly old hags have to wear a burqa. It's, um, "a matter of respect". Yeah, that's it.(Respect for my libido.)
BTW, are you guys all joking in 'ere? I think that you guys are joking. If yeah then a big LOL!
Anurag, I'm glad you take it with a smile, I think we just couldn't resist.
SO, it was a joke in fact?! LOL!
anurag said: "SO, it was a joke in fact?! LOL!"Yes it was.This is one of the deficiencies of textual socialising. It is not always easy to tell if people are serious or joking. Cultural differences also play a role in this.
This is even true in face to face socializing to some degree, it's not always people have the facial expression others expect when they're joking.
I have been accused of having a deadpan delivery, and people often don't get it. Sometimes it is fun, but other times it's a curse.Culture and age come into humour as well.
Alex, are you being serious there, or joking?I'm not sure judging by your expression in the photo.
