All of a sudden the past few weeks I’ve been getting loads of Rolex spam. It even seems to be outnumbering the junk mail that I receive for Vi#gr@ and body part enlargement. I wonder why all of a sudden spam from fly-by-night companies selling fake Rolex watches has increased so much. Maybe all the… Read more »

Dremel has released a pumpkin carving tool. I imagine that if you were to use this tool there’d be alot of orange goo thrown everywhere. I sure wish I’d see this sooner or I would have carved a pumpkin this year. Maybe I’ll carve a Thanksgiving pumpkin instead with a nice turkey on it.
Apple released a slew of new iPod goodies today. The first new iPod is a special edition black “U2” version. It is just your typical 20GB iPod with one subtle difference… it’s black with a red Apple click wheel and the band’s signatures laser engraved on the back. It sells for $349 which includes $50… Read more »

Google just released a new SMS service. If you send an SMS (text message) from your cell phone to the number 46645 (GOOGL) with a certain syntax, the super smart Google robot will send you a text message back with your results. Yesterday, I tried one of the examples from Google: pizza 52242 (the zip… Read more »
For those of you that have a Gmail account, this little utility is a nice addition. It allows you to use your 1Gb for actual storage. It puts a little drive icon into Windows and transfers files pretty quickly from your local machine to your Gmail storage(I haven’t tried any large files yet). I suppose… Read more »
On Friday I was able to see (and touch) one of the new iMac G5 all-in-one computers in person. The Campus rep had one in the computer demo area. I have to say that the pictures don’t do it justice. Just like its predecessor iMac (iLamp) you really don’t get a feel for it until… Read more »

Kevin Gerich has some fun alternate versions of the “Get Firefox” buttons. I decided to take a stab at it.
It was a big day for the Mozilla Foundation with a new release of Thunderbird 0.8, Firefox Preview Release 1.0, and Mozilla Suite 1.7.3. This preview release of Firefox is the first of probably two before the full 1.0 release in a few month in 4th quarter of 2004. Download it and try it out… Read more »
I’ve had a Gmail account since early July (I was able to get it from an old Blogger account I had) and haven’t received any invites until the past couple weeks. I initially had 5 to offer and gave away two or three of them. Now it keeps getting bumped up. Whenever I give out… Read more »
Just some random Firefox notes: They’ve redesigned the mozilla.org website. Steven Garity did the redesign, and they’ve been beta testing it for the past week or so. I think it’s a definite improvement over the previous brown design. Hopefully with this redesign, version 1.0 is just around the corner. The roadmap aims for a beta… Read more »
Well, tomorrow is supposedly the big day for Apple. Apple Expo is being held in Paris. Rumor has it there will be a new G5 iMac announced at the keynote. There is also talk that they’ll be releasing a new version of the iSight camera as well. Engadget had a “Design the new G5 iMac”… Read more »
It happened a while back, but Google purchased Picasa, a company that develops software enabling users to manage and share their digital photos. I tried Picasa last year sometime and found that it’s a pretty nice program. If you’ve ever used iPhoto on a mac, this is about as close as you can get on… Read more »
There was a good article about a bad bill, the INDUCE Act, on Wired.com today. I’m thinking it might be a good time to practice what can sometimes feel an exercise in futility and send a letter to my elected officials. Until recently, much of the discussion among tech enthusiasts about a controversial anti-piracy bill… Read more »
