The world of software patents is a bit like Monthy Python - the reason why Apple, Google and Microsoft have been hit by a lawsuit is that they use thumbnails to preview files like images and video in their applications. This is already pretty funny, but we might be in for some even more ridiculous [...]

Some of these are actually very useful - at least I think so ;-P I always thought it would be cool to take my laptop out camping for example, but it never seemed realistic because how on Earth would I power it? With some of the gadgets there it’s absolutely possible ;)

Modifying Google Search Results

Google has come out with a new feature called Searchwiki. The idea is that you can personalize the search results you get for particular keywords. I haven’t tried it yet and I’m not sure I repeat the same searches often enough to warrant this, but it’s an interesting idea all the same.

Anyone who followed my old blog knows I am not a fan of Apple computers ;) So it is with great satisfaction that I announce that at least when it comes to iPhones, India agrees.
India is second only to China as far as amount of mobile phone users is concerned (interestingly enough, in India they [...]

I guess this is particularly useful to bloggers, but I imagine other people might find it worth knowing as well :) What do you do when you’ve got a 10min. video and you think about 4min. is very interesting? I’ve had that a lot and usually I’ve just posted the whole video, but apparently I [...]

Yep, it took a group of hackers a few weeks to hack the system that was supposed to last for 10 years :]
As much as I get annoyed with people pirating films, I’m rather happy about these events. The system was silly and detrimental to people who wanted to watch films on blu-ray discs legally [...]

There are three big features that Mozilla wants to bring to Firefox 4. Prism and Geode sound very exciting (I certainly could see myself using them), Weave less so, but I guess as long as I can turn it off I’m happy. The thing that struck me reading through the list is that they actually [...]
