The inevitable Furby toy review

Posted on December 12th, 2012 in Opinions

This is about one of those lovely Furby toys… but from the older generation, in the late ’90s. And it’s not the proper, big Furby that has “a mind of its own,” but a keychain version. Of course, the one with two shades of purple was chosen, as it’s probably the most goth one, maybe […]

Tablet, please!

Posted on July 18th, 2012 in Opinions, Rants

…thank you. After having enough “touch”, I will satisfyingly declare it “consumed”… I’m a consumer after all, aren’t I? Well, I didn’t really order a tablet, if that’s what you expected… I’m just fantasizing about a reason to get one. And I just can’t find any, I guess I’d just have one if I was […]

Politics and tech

Posted on July 1st, 2012 in Opinions

What’s the link, some might ask? Bear with me for a while. I’m gonna tell you a story and you’ll see what the connection is. The story is about a political party. They managed to win the elections and became the main party to govern a certain country. The name of the country doesn’t matter, […]

Man and machine

Posted on May 28th, 2012 in Opinions

There are people. And there are computers. And inevitably, computer games, or videogames. Some videogames are made with a dirty mind. With a metal music fan’s mind. In other words, with a maniac’s mind. We call them metallers. Should you try to play such a game, it may be a fun experience against another human […]

People can’t even let Mr. Steve Jobs be buried peacefully

Posted on October 14th, 2011 in All and Everything

Okay, this is not an article related to Apple or their former CEO. The passing away of Mr. Steve Jobs already became a saga, somewhat expectedly. Each moment that passed afterwards was monitored and commented everywhere on the internet. Now, when he is meant to be buried, people still try to use him to score […]

Updated: Hypocrisy, manipulation and even lies surround the passing away of Mr. Steve Jobs

Posted on October 6th, 2011 in All and Everything

By now everyone knows Mr. Jobs passed away. Of course, just like with his stepping down from the position of Apple CEO, everybody and their grandmas had to “report” it anywhere – blogs, Facebook profiles, Twitter, anything – because they are all attention whores. But you kinda get used to that. What is annoying is […]

The little computer shop on the corner

Posted on October 4th, 2011 in Rants

These shops are supposed to make it easier for people to get equipment and software, right? Wrong. These shops are meant to crush any out-of-line ideas you might have about computers and program you with their own ideas. If you don’t like it, go to hell. We only serve serious customers here. Who listen to […]

15 Minutes Alone. With an iPad.

Posted on October 2nd, 2011 in Opinions

I’m alone, in my office. I have some bugs to fix. Many bugs. And today, the planets have aligned to give me the most annoying things to do, on purpose. I have to take a break, so I go to the living room, for a short walk. The company I work for runs in a […]

Of Nokia and Man

Posted on October 1st, 2011 in Opinions, Rants

And thus we begin our saga into the legend of Nokia. Ancient stories about the new era. The story begins with a precious, old artefact. An exponent of the jurassic era of phones. Thirteen million years ago (OK, maybe not “million”…), a mighty mobilisaurus emerged from the silicon depths… The Nokia 6110! Of course, I […]

For once, I agree with Mr. Steve Jobs

Posted on September 15th, 2011 in All and Everything

I don’t hate Apple. That would be a very stupid thing to do. I don’t even hate their users. I think that the users are either ignorant, too easily distracted by shallow things or plain computer-illiterate. There are very few people who get Apple things because of a specific, well detailed reason. So when I […]
