State Of The Blog

June 30, 2008

Well, there are some days that I actually don’t have anything to either write about or that I want to write about.

This has turned out to be one of those days.

I did the prior post just to show that I haven’t disappeared.

Today is the last day of the sixth month.

This blog is hurtling towards its death, six months hence.

There. That brightened your day, didn’t it?

911 Sixty Years Ago

June 30, 2008

Screensnaps from the 1948 movie, The Naked City, which was filmed on location in New York City.

Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth

June 29, 2008

So, after showing you screensnaps here, what else can I show you?

This is all I can safely show you:

I’m not being cheeky.

1) I didn’t see any of season three, so I don’t know what strands from Martha-as-Companion have been pulled in

2) I haven’t yet seen all of season four, so I don’t know all the strands being pulled from that

3) I think anything beyond that would be a spoiler

As for the script … it’s all set-up. All of it.

Whatever is going to happen will be in the next episode.

Davies had little humor here, little humanism here. It was about 98% action.

I can’t fault the script, even though I felt disappointed by it.

Like I said, it’s all set-up.

To Be Continued.

I Can See The Doctor Now

June 29, 2008

It didn’t show up last night. But I had to leave the PC a bit early. Plus, there’s something going on with um, a certain service, that I hope is only a passing bug, concerning timestamps of added video.

I’m not spoiling anything by showing this:

Now that does look exciting or what?!!?

Back after I’ve seen it and selected relevant screensnaps.

ABC also has a deal going with Veoh. But I haven’t found it on Veoh yet. If I do, I’ll add the link in a separate post — the video too, if that’s possible.

Everex Has Been Acquired

June 28, 2008

And yet this news wasn’t mentioned on any subnotebook site!

Cloudbook Maker Everex Snapped up by Newmarket

Low-cost PC maker Everex this week said it had agreed to be acquired by systems integrator Newmarket Technology for an undisclosed sum.

Newmarket said it will buy 75 percent of Everex’s shares from parent company First International Computer, a Taiwan-based PC vendor.

And:

Newmarket, which provides systems integration and technology infrastructure services, said Cloudbook’s ability to offer high-speed WiMax capabilities will be at the center of the company’s effort to offer new mobile technologies to customers, according to Philip Verges, CEO and founder of Newmarket, in a letter to shareholders on Tuesday.

Newmarket is interested in bringing ultramobile products, especially the WiMax-enabled Cloudbook, into emerging markets, said Paul Kim, director of marketing at Everex.

Hey, how about some USA in-store presence for the Cloudbook?

Just not at freaking US$450.00!
