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”.

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.


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.


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.


Firefox 3 Woes

June 20, 2008

Most of you out there have Firefox 3 and noticed some of your addons are not compatible? WTF?!?! Ah, but don’t panic. There’s a chance they are updated but just not on the Mozilla Addons site. You may have to go to the homepage of the developer of said addon. All you do is right-click and “Visit Home Page”.

Usually, they may have information about any FF3 updates or betas if not posted on the addon page.

One thing I read on Digg was that you can cheat by changing something in the about:config page. You could try that but they say it’s a big risk so… don’t do it.


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.
