Today I want to post three videos that I have found from around the web. I think they give a great understanding of how technology has progressed over the last 25 years.
The Mac in 1985
We start with a video that was produced by The Computer Chronicles where they demonstrate the latest in the Mac Hardware and Software and where it is heading. The quality isn’t great, but it is 1985 after all….
A look at Japan’s underground bicycle parking system
Secondly we take a look at something that I think that should be adopted by all major cities. Now I know Japan (although I have never been, but hope to visit in the near future) is a nation that loves to travel around the city by Bicycle and have far more of the things than other cities (combined, probably).
This system is absolutely fantastic… I will shut up and let Danny Choo of Culture Japan show you how it works.
Photoshop Live - Street Retouch Prank
Finally we have the Photoshop Live – Street Retouch Prank. This thing made me cry with laughing. I would love to see this done here in my home town. Just watch it you will be amazed at how quick they are able to edit photos and the peoples reactions.
If you guys haven’t already realized, the Worldwide Developers Conference of 2013 (WWDC-2013) is underway in the United States, and if you were among the unlucky few (thousand) not to get a ticket in the 72 seconds it took for the conference to sell out, you can now watch the entire Keynote Address right on the Apple Website.
I would have loved to have put an embedded version of the video for you guys to watch but it is yet to be made available, but you can get to it by clicking on the logo below. Just be sure to head back here to find out what Apple announced…
Quick post today just to point you in the direction of an interesting Interview Video over at All Things Digital website with Tim Cook. He gives us an impression of where Apple is heading and where he wants to take Apple.
I am not able to embed the video here for you unfortunately. I suspect this will become available on YouTube at some point, so for the time being you will need to use the link below to view the video.
It has been quite sometime since my last post… there is a reason for that and I will post again to explain why when I have more time. Today I just wanted to re-iterate my point about scamming emails and how people still fall for these, clearly incorrect emails.
Today I received an email from Yahoo! Internet Lottery Organization indicating that my email address had been selected from 50 Million email address around the world and I had won $1 Million US Dollars.
Here is that email (there is a few things on it I will point out that you can take away and not get taken in by these scammers):
You may have heard the old saying “You are only paying for the name…” well this is something that has crossed my mind a lot lately. Those who read this blog and those that know me, know my devotion to Apple products is a strong one, and despite being a contradiction in terms to what I am about to write about, I will most probably continue to support Apple by purchasing their products in the years to come.
For a number of years, rather than attempting to stick with New Years Resolutions which we all have every intention to comply with and then say when the year ends, well I never did what I set out to do. I set myself a challenge to learn a new skill for the year, either by attending a class or signing up to college. This year I decided to return to college and take up a Vehicle Maintenance Course in an attempt to learn how to repair my own vehicle and save myself money on the parts and labor.
With the help of The WordPress.com stats helper, here is 2012 annual report for this blog. Enjoy, and I will be back posting very soon, sorry for the big gap in posts.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 14,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals
Today I received an email, from the FBI… scary right. I can’t believe people are still thinking that they can get away with these types of scams. Yes, you can say, that some people must be responding to these emails otherwise why would they keep on trying.
I do work in IT, it is main source of income, but I think, when I see these emails, anyone (and I don’t mean to offend any of my readers), with any sense of common-sense, would realize that it is a complete fabrication of facts that are completely untrue.
It has been a while since my last article that featured a motorcycle. Although I no longer own a motorcycle (for now) my passion for their aesthetic design and convenience, has not gone away.
When I saw this beautifully designed concept bike by Marko Petrovic, my enthusiasm was revived and just had to do a post on it, and only hope we will see something like it on our roads soon.
I know it is on my wish list…
Apple delayed the release of iTunes 11 from its original scheduled release date of 31st October, promising it would arrive sometime in late November. Stating that “…the new iTunes is taking longer than expected and we want to take a little extra time to get it right…” I think Apple were not wanting to risk a similar situation the company had over the release of the Maps app, and having to write another apology letter for releasing a piece of software that was not quite finished.
