The Five Unwise Men


Today I had a Xmas lunch with a twist - or rather, with several twisted minds. We await pfig's public announcement of his upcoming Web 2.0 mashup, which is purported to use tags, Ajax, Rails and as much hype as possible. Add being anything but worksafe to the mix, and you have a sure winner...

  • Which reminds me: Finally, people are starting to ask the right questions about Rails. Not sure if it's the right forum, though...
  • Motorola's new UI is making the rounds again - but it's still not up to scratch in my honest opinion (and that's as far as I'll go). The article is wrong on one thing, though - as far as I know, the A910 does not have Exchange sync support - it's standard SyncML.
  • Wow, Seagate bought Maxtor for nearly US$2 billion - storage is booming, indeed...
  • I am very, very curious about this. E-book readers have always seemed completely useless to me if they can't take standard HTML and PDFs, and this one seems to do away with all the DRM crap as well.
  • Sometimes (but only sometimes, mind you), I wish I had the time (and, until the Mac version comes, out, the right hardware) to play Quake 4 - especially this map they released for Xmas.

And while we're on the topic of gaming, here's our moment of Zen, courtesy of Pac Man (via BoingBoing).
