How to install the Mac OS and Windows on your MacBook Pro

Lifehacker: “When I bought my first Mac last month – a 15″ MacBook Pro – I wasn’t thrilled about the $2000+ price tag (even though I did save a few hundred upgrading the RAM myself). But I wasn’t just buying one computer, I was getting two. Not only was I: 1) getting a Mac, a platform I’d long wanted to dive into, but 2) I was also purchasing a computer that could run a familiar old friend – Windows.”

“Using the previously-mentioned virtual machine software, Parallels Desktop for Mac ($79.99), you can run Mac OS X and Windows (XP, Vista, you name it) side-by-side. Here’s how I’ve set up my Parallels installation to make working in multiple OSes easy and fun.” more…

The ultimate sports mp3 player!

Ooh I am just raving over this groundbreaking little gadget!!! Sony is constantly coming up with innovative ideas that should be blasting away the competition and this is my favourite example:

Sony S2 Sports® 2 GB MP3 Player

the super sexy sports mp3 player from Sony
Available for pre-ordering @ $150 and comes with the wristband. Expected ship date: September 15, 2006.

My favourite feature:
Music Pacer – switches between playlists based on the tempo of your workout. It’s based on Sony’s G-Sensor technology, which automatically detects speed variation via the Music Pacer. The Music Pacer detects your speed, tempo and acceleration and automatically selects an appropriate playlist. This is such an awesome idea! I would use this feature all the time – even for determined walking to the store or just daydreaming through my neighbourhood.

Highly notable features:
Shuffle Shake – activates shuffle mode by shaking the player 3 times with the LCD facing up.
Target settings – set your target distance, time and calories burned.
Pedometer – Yay! I wanted one anyway.
Stop Watch – time your own circuit.
FM Tuner – with programmable presets. Every mp3 player should have one anyway. This one is able to tune into TV programs playing in many gyms.
Water Resistant – against perspiration and water splashes.
2GB Capacity – for storing up to 1,350 songs. 1GB and 512MB will also be available.
lightning fast recharging – just 3 minutes to charge up the batteries for 3 hours of playback, or total of 18 hours of battery life on a full charge.
Sleek, durable aluminium casing – available in black, pink, or silver.
One-line organic electroluminescence (OEL) display – accommodates both left-handed and right-handed users.

Now someone please explain to me how the iPod continues to be the number one choice mp3 player when the only thing innovative about it is the casing… and lets face it, even that is getting old. Its entirely reliant on iTunes which completely sucks, has a limited interface and forces you to use iTunes only to play the large music collection you’ve invested in and paid good money for through their store. I dont like how it snoops either to see if you have other copies on other machines / devices. So what!?! I own that track! A few months ago I uninstalled iTunes and it wiped out my entire music library including tracks I didnt purchase through iTunes that I’d collected since ’98. Yesterday I tried to run iTunes and it cant even find its own folders or my iPod. Reinstalling doesn’t make any difference. And today it wont even let me uninstall at all. I can’t wait to purge it from my system and my life once and for all when completely reinstall my laptop.

Video Of Asahi’s Beer Pouring Robot

OhGizmo reports: “We usually hide videos after the fold, but this is special. See, a lot of people got weak at the knees, back in December of last year, when news that Japan’s Asahi Breweries were giving away 5,000 beer-pouring robots as part of a special contest. Check out the comments on that article to get an idea of the level of excitement. Well, it’s eight months later, and obviously, there are some lucky Japanese now owners of said robot. And, one of them was kind enough to post a video of it in action to Youtube.


Click here if you can’t see the video above.

In case you can’t see the video, here’s the skinny: you don’t have to place the beer on its hand, but you do have to place the mug yourself. It fetches the beer from its refrigerated belly itself and pours it in your mug all by itself. It takes for freaking ever, and yelps little high-pitched Japanese things at you while it’s doing this.

It’s awesome.

You could do a much better job yourself, sure, even at a fraction of the time. But, then, you’d be missing the whole point.”

GnuPG for Gmail

CHRISEKBLOG:

FreeEnigma brings cryptography to webmail, with an ingenious set of free and open browser plug-ins that work with Yahoo, Gmail, and others. The plugins implement a version of GPG (the free/open version of Pretty Good Privacy) and scramble and de-scramble the text in your webmail before you send it and after you receive it, reducing the amount of information that webmail providers have on your communications. This is long overdue, as webmail and other hosted mail solutions are a ticking bomb, just waiting for a hacker, spook or copper to come a-knockin’, there to get a look at your private communications.”

“Though this is miles and miles better than the privacy that plain webmail delivers, there are a couple of ways in which this is less than perfect — the system doesn’t protect the To: and From: and Subject: information in your email; an adversary might be able to harm you just by knowing the fact that you’ve gotten encrypted mail from a specific person.”

Think of an object and the AI will try to figure out what you are thinking by asking simple questions. The object you think of should be something that most people would know about, but, not a specific person, place or thing.

The fluoride controversy vs. our kids natural teeth

Water fluoridation was first advanced in the US at the end of the second World War when the government had tons of fluoride – a nuclear waste byproduct – to get rid of. We have found ingenious ways to get rid of it – partly by introducing it into our water supply and toothpaste. Proponents argued that fluoride in water and toothpaste would help to protect teeth and prevent decay. Over the last few decades, fluoride has been added to public water supplies across the USA and UK.

While the benefits of fluoridation have been held to be unquestionable, accumulating evidence points to serious adverse health effects, including infant mortality, cancer, congenital defects and IQ. Today fluoride is an industrial waste byproduct of the aluminium and fertilizer industries and is known for poisoning the environment. We have a limitless supply of it. (more…)
