My life in Google searches

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

  Since it’s the end of a month, I thought it’d be convenient to look through my Google search stats. The graphs here are for my past 365 days of Googling, so March 2010-11. With monthly search activity, it’s not surprising that May and Aug came out as top months since those are transition months […]

I have a problem with HP

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Ugh, HP. This is why I got so worried when HP acquired Palm. For the past year, HP has just gone on a copycat spree, copying from none other than Apple. Well duh, that’s probably a good business decision seeing how consumers just lust after those Apple machines. But damnit, HP is just a giant, lumbering, […]

New Flagships for the Italian Rivals

Monday, March 28th, 2011

The new flagship models of the long-time Italian rivalry: Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari FF. Both are V12 supercars costing over $350,000. Both have sold out preorders for their first model year.

Race to Cloud Media

Friday, March 25th, 2011

  So apparently Google, Apple, and now Amazon are all planning the same service. And Amazon’s may actually launch first! -MG Siegler I honestly don’t have much faith in Amazon’s interpretation. Apple will probably offer the best user experience and the convenience of iTunes integration. Google will likely try to best Apple on value and […]

My top seven Super Bowl XLV ads!

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Spent Friday afternoon watching Grammy performances and Super Bowl ads on YouTube. I’m such a loser that I missed both of those. But broadcast companies are even more losers for not hosting full video streams of these things. Rather than earning ad revenue from online views, they just put these past broadcasts away forever. It didn’t […]

Everything leads to everything else.
