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”.


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.


Flickr Are Douchebags

July 13, 2008

Well, let me explain. This will be quick.
I emailed Flickr in attempt to gain access to my “hidden” photos since I’m back to a free user. I checked my email and here’s their reply:

Hello, Outsanity Photos!

This is an automatically generated copy of a help case reply:

————————-
Hello,

Thank you for contacting Flickr Customer Care.

I’ll be more than glad to assist you.

Since you have a Free account you can only see the latest 200 uploads,
the old ones haven’t been deleted, they have just been hidden until you
upgrade to Pro or make space for old files.

If you want to upgrade to Pro please check this link:

http://www.flickr.com/upgrade/

If you don’t want to upgrade to Pro, you can make copies of the photos
that you do see and save them in your PC. After this you can delete the
latest uploads, and the old ones should come up.

Thank you again for contacting us. If you have any other questions,
please feel free to reply to this email.
Regards,

Ian
Flickr Customer Care

Ummm… maybe I’m missing something but would it had killed Flickr to maybe give me temp PRO for one day? If I wanted to delete my recent photos, why would I bother to even upload them in the first place? I know they need to make money but to push going PRO when you’re asking for help don’t really reflect “customer care” to me.


People Will Never Learn

July 11, 2008

Today, people was in line as far back as Monday to get the new Blackberry. Ok, it was actually the iPhone. That’s right, the new iPhone is now slimmer and has 3G and GPS.
Here’s my issue. People don’t understand that it’s better to WAIT rather than go out and buy the first one that’s out. Why? Gee, didn’t Apple drop the price within a few months of the first iPhone? The same thing happened with the Wii, PS3, ect.
Another reason to wait is because people feel the digital camera on the new iPhone is better than the old one BUT… no video.

So, here’s my prediction: Everyone will pay the high price for the iPhone 3G only to find out Apple will lower the price and maybe push out a new iPhone with video support. I give it 3-5 months.


Just So You Know…

June 26, 2008

I HATE my neighborhood. Mainly because of the gay ass wanna-be thugs and white chicks acting black.
The Chicago Police do nothing while they stand around dealing drugs. I think they know they are doing it but won’t act on it.

Now I understand the KKK’s message.
Well, not really.


YouTube’s Fuck Up

June 16, 2008

I have a question I’m sure anyone can answer.
You know when you upload a music video you’ll get a notice from YouTube about copyright and all that jazz and they will basically do this to your video (circled in red).

So, the question at hand is why does music videos get a copyright notice yet people who post mp3’s in a video with a single image don’t get one?
You can’t go after one without going after the other, now. I mean, am I wrong for thinking this?


iPhony

June 11, 2008

I could talk about all the talk about the iPhone having 3G (whatever the fuck that is) and all it’s fancy new features that… well, you may not really use much of BUT, I want to talk about something people might tend to overlook. Yep, I’m talking about phone plans.

As everyone knows, most people these days pretty much replaced the home phone with a cell phone thus making it their “mobile house phone” (reading that aloud sounds so “hillbillyish”, eh?). Sure, lots of people can not only afford the iPhone itself but can also afford the contract price and all the bullshit fees like texting.
[SIDENOTE RANT]If all you do the most is texting on your phone, then why bother having a phone? Just get a laptop, install your IM clients (I suggest getting Digsby) and get like a broadband network card so you can walk about looking like a bigger dork than you do trying to text someone about some cute person you saw in the mall with your big fat fingers and the oh-so tiny buttons. Fucking nincompoops.[/SIDENOTE RANT]
Now, someone like me, I would get an iPhone but, I don’t want a contract. The only failsafe commitment I’ll make is to a future wife. I read on FriendFeed that a rumor is that Apple might do the “Pay & Go” iPhone after the new one comes out. Would I get one if that rumor was true? HELL YES! I think Apple would benefit with a PAYG (pay as you go) plan. Why waste contract fees for a phone you’ll barely use? You know I’m right.

Now, this is where I plead to Apple that they need to do Pay & Go.

Dear Apple, Steve Jobs, and the rest of the super smart fucks over there,
I’m sure you guys are happy to have invented everything and be almost as powerful as Oprah. What, I, as a possible future Apple consumer, would like is an iPhone that I can pay for whatever minutes I feel I need to have than paying ridiculous amounts of contract fees just to call home or calling my one out of state friend. I beg of you… PLEASE consider doing a Pay & Go iPhone. Thank You.

P.S. If you have any recent MacBooks or iMacs just sitting around, I’ll be willing to take them as a donation just to help you guys out.
