We all knew it was only a matter of time: Sweden is to become the first country to establish diplomatic representation in the virtual reality world of Second Life, officials said on Friday. “We are planning to establish a Swedish embassy in Second Life primarily as an information portal for Sweden,” Swedish Institute (SI) director […]

SpamHaus – Irresponsible Net Citizens

I think in general that spam blocking databases are a good thing. I am as frustrated with spam as the next person. However, I think SpamHaus is irresponsible in the service they provide for the simple reason that they abuse their power and refuse to implement levels of granularity in their database. For example, right […]

Why Second Life Fails?

In December I wrote a blog post that predicted that over the longer-term Second Life fails because there is no governance.  I am a big fan of SL, but to me it increasingly resembles some sort of phishing scam.  In one month, I had games of chance that didn’t pay out on winning hands, vendor […]

In Loving Memory – Dr. Robert Garigue

I was extremely saddened to learn today that my good friend Robert had quietly passed away at the age of 55. I first met Robert back in 1994 when our paths crossed based on a mutual interest on the topic of information warfare. We would keep in touch periodically over the next several years often […]

I am as excited about the release of the Apple iPhone and it will likely be on my shopping list come June. However, here are five key components that I think are missing in the first generation of the device as described during the keynote and on the Apple website. No third party applications. If […]

I’ve spent two full business days with the N80i and given it some really heavy use. Here are some additional impressions… Pros: Voice quality is excellent. As good as any cell phone I have used. Pairing with BT headset (Jawbone) worked great. Very seamless. Reception has been good. Certainly equal to my Razr (Cingular as […]

Steve Job’s takes us five years into the future…

Just got done watching the Steve Job’s keynote. The new iPhone is a rule breaker, paradigm shaker and it will be fun to watch this unfold over the coming six months. The implications of the interface far exceed the mobile phone market. I’ve been using a zero touch keyboard for two years that allows gesturing, […]

Nokia N80i First Impressions

I’ve been playing with the N80i a bit over the weekend and have been reasonably happy. The first thing I did (before even moving my SIM card to the new phone) was test the VOIP features. As a Mac user I did not use the Nokia CD, which I am assuming had the Gizmo Project […]

Curse of the Blackberry Pearl

On January 4, 2007, in Technology, by Administrator

My Blackberry Pearl has started failing on me after only 45 days of use. The external speaker no longer works so the phone does not ring and the speakerphone does not work (nor does playing MP3 files without the headset). I decided that I would move back to a two device configuration and get a […]
