My Rejaw Review, Somewhat

August 21, 2008

The new buzz on FriendFeed is a site called Rejaw. Maybe it’s me but just the title of the site seems to be a bit odd to say. Sounds like a word you say after a headshot. Like “j00 g0tz r3j4w’D” or some shit like that. I’m not very keen with the big and uncrisp font. So far, I was able to fix that with AdBlock. In short, it’s basically a Twitter clone. Think of Twitter and FrendFeed if they were to combine. Actually, Rejaw is more like a FriendFeed clone since you can embed and talk in conversations.

So, just what the fuck is the big hoopla? Hell, I still don’t know. People say that Leo Laporte has lead the way to making Rejaw the new Twitter. You mean like how Identi.ca was going to be the new Twitter? Or Plurk? Even FriendFeed was called the new Twitter when Twitter started fucking up shit. People, before you claim some new site a new anything just remember that there will be another site that will be better than the last one.

The only thing I’m doing with mines is posting swear words.
I’m still new on FriendFeed. Unlike the Titanic, I’m not jumping ship. Plus I can’t swim.
So, what’s my verdict? It’s ok. Nothing about it is grand enough to make me leave my Twitter and it sure as hell not any better than Twitter. So, go and join it if you want. That’s why God made “close account”.

MySpace: Social networking site, dating site, or another place to upload your photos?

August 11, 2008

Assuming people actually still be on MySpace, what is the main function for your usage? I can say I have 2 pages. One for me and one for my photos only. I only use the photos one since I take photos. I did meet one person off the site but… It just didn’t work out.

Now, as a social networking site, I’d assume it’s ok. It’s no Facebook but, Facebook is sucking wintergreen minty balls. If you overlook all the spam, and douchebags wanting to add you just to add someone, it’s ok. Hmm, spam and douchebags adding you? Sounds like Twitter.

As a dating site, I guess there’s some potential. I mean, if your goal is a hot chick you know you’ll never diddle then Godspeed. I must say, I’d rather use MySpace to date rather than meeting people face-to-face. At least I’ll know what I’m in for via MySpace unless they lied. But, who would lie on the internet?

MySpace also helps you meet Chris Hansen. Well, MySpace and AIM.
“Why don’t you have a seat right there…”

For photo storage, it works out for you if anything. No need to tag them and all the other taxing shit you’d do like on Flickr and Zooomr.

I know I overlooked their video feature but I don’t use it. It’s stupid.


Best YouTube Comment Ever!

July 22, 2008

Let me show you two retarded comments for the same retard. The douchebag’s YouTube name is ChezterG. I’m not going to link his profile seeing how he only has 2 videos. So, I check YouTube and see I have 2 new comments. So, here’s the first one he sent me.

I laughed because, wouldn’t that mean he’d have to go to every popular vlogger’s YouTube and tell them to stop? For some reason I, peaked his interest (or hate). I pretty much told him to change his tampon and quit being a he-bitch. But then i read the second comment.
I’m flattered some 17 year old queer wants to keep tabs on me but… Sorry, Charlie. I highly doubt I’m going to listen to some punk emo cocksucker telling me to stop filming myself because he can’t find his wrist slitting razor. By the way, IF I was obsessed with myself, shouldn’t I have more videos than I already have? Hell, why would I be on the internet if I was?
Stupid knob gobbling knucklehead.


Sony PSP Update 4.05

July 20, 2008


I posted this video to show the new Sony PSP Firmware update and what it included. All there was to the update was a new visual player. It’s really nothing special. All it does is act like water reacting to water drops. Not something I’d push out in an update by itself.


Posterous

Dear Google,

July 9, 2008

I will keep this letter short.
I learned from a FriendFeed post by Chris Pirillo about something you made called “Lively” in your Labs. I have not yet try it but here’s a helpful review: “I didn’t realize it was possible, but Google Lively is WORSE than Second Life. Like, astoundingly bad. Don’t try.“.
I ask you: why did you even bother? From your YouTube video, you seemed to figure out how to clone Yahoo’s Avatartown and IMVU, mix them together, and produce the digital liquid shit you made.
Please scrap that little project and PLEASE scrap Orkut. Don’t besmirch the Google name with that trash.


Clipboard Diary

July 7, 2008

I just got finished tinkering with a free program called Clipdiary I saw in Smart Computing (July 2008, Vol. 19, Iss.7, Pg. 26). It’s basically an “extension”, if you call it that, to the Windows clipboard. What’s so special about it? Well, it remembers everything you “RC & S” (Right-Click & Save) into a little .sql file on your PC. Once you install it, you can press Ctrl+D to open and close it. I find it handy if you’re doing things like uploading videos and/or images on multiple sites.

Here’s a bad video of me messing with it.
