Michael points us to the iPod Death Clock which told me that my new iPod was manufactured in November 06 and will live for another 700 days 20 hours 11 minutes 12 seconds. I think I’ll probably have upgraded before I hit D-Day.

Yep – you read that right. My mother-in-law gave us each a candy pooing bear for a stocking stuffer this year. You have to see it in action – it’s very disturbing: The box says: “The Sub-Zero Poopin’ Hero!” — this is just too much!!
All of the cool kids have iPods – and now so do I My husband bought me a nano for Christmas and some nice little skins so I can pretend that I have a pretty colored iPod. Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you’re all having a great day.
Today my husband and I threw a holiday party for our families. Everyone came here and we cooked a feast. My mother and husband gave me a new digital camera. I got the FujiFilm E900 – and I must say it’s much better than my old Fuji. I took a bunch of pictures with no flash in my dark house and they all turned out pretty darn good. I also [ Read More ]
This is something every student should have. I read my textbooks while commuting to and from work – this means the highlighter is held between my teeth while I carefully hold my book so as not to invade on other’s personal space. The booksling is the answer to this awkward situation.
I said before (earlier today) that I didn’t think the Flickr Camera Finder was useful, but I’ve played with it more and have changed my mind. I did a little browsing to find pictures taken by a particular camera. I can use this to figure out which cameras take the best pictures (for me). I have added the FujiFilm E900 to my wishlist per a recommendation from a friend (and [ Read More ]
Flickr now has a Camera Finder that shows you which cameras are the most popular on Flickr. It doesn’t actually show which cameras are good – just which ones the most members on Flickr use. Not terribly useful – but still interesting.
I want a new digital camera. As you can see by my pics from the 2 conferences my camera’s not so good with the dark places. I see some great pictures take in the same rooms I was in – and I just want to know what cameras you’re all using and happy with. I should note that my camera (I have a FujiFilm A340) is 2+ years old – [ Read More ]
I didn’t get to attend this session, but I can keep up because Aaron Schmidt has put the presentation online. The most confusing (and kind of useful) item – the USB heated gloves (on page 17) – at first I couldn’t figure out why I would have my laptop with me while out in the snow. But Aaron’s description cleared it up for me – I can use these in [ Read More ]
I bought a new toy on ebay over the weekend. I am not the excited (cause it’s a new toy) owner of an HP Ipaq 4355. What’s so neat about this gadget? Well it’s a Pocket PC with WiFi – something I haven’t had on a Pocket PC before. It also has a handy little keyboard. It also allows me to read my lectures & handouts while on the train [ Read More ]
