Much Ado About Nothing

A narrative of the life of a Amatuer Videographer. Who works at a video game store. Who is also a geek. As if that wasn’t blatantly obvious.

Peekaru, the WTF blanket revisited.

The Peekaru is a Snuggie-like fleece ensemble for mommies and daddies to carry their babies in. One version is sleeveless and covers the baby entirely, with just its face sticking out of a portal. Now, the question is, does the Peekaru make wearers look more like: a) Krang b) Quato c) Master Blaster or d) Kane? Photos so you can make an informed judgement inside.

Videos: Probably Fake Apple Tablet In Action. But Awesome.

This looks AWESOME. I really need to get me one of these when it comes out.

via TechCrunch by MG Siegler on 8/13/09


Simply by the laws of averages, the likelihood that the following two videos are real, is very small. If someone was able to sneak out one video of the Apple Tablet in action, it’d be a miracle, but two? Now you’re just tempting fate. Still, that isn’t stopping Brian Lam of Gizmodo from wondering if there could be something to these (even though his colleague disagrees). And you know what, even if they aren’t real, Apple should consider hiring whoever made them, because this seems like the right idea.

Sure, certain details are off, like the text alignment on some of the elements as ZDNet points out. But just look at this system in action. It’s like having multiple iPhones on the same giant touch screen (and that may actually be exactly what this is).

Regardless, whatever this is or isn’t, I want this. I was unsure if the app model would be better or worse than running a version of regular OS X on the Apple Tablet, but I’m definitely leaning towards better recently. And after seeing this, I hope Apple is too.

Also enjoy some images posted in the MacRumors Forums of the same purported device.

Look what I found in my parent’s basement!

An authentic IBM Model M keyboard. Unfortunately missing a few keys, but I think they're still in the basement. Along with the cord. But this is really going to be sweet, using this baby.

Dwarf Mini Pony

Aww, that’s so cute!

via Neatorama by Jill Harness on 8/11/09


This pony is an American miniature horse born with a dwarfism gene. For reference, there’s another picture of little Koda compared to a normal horse on the website. He goes to about the knees of the stallion. I couldn’t resist posing this image with the huge eyes though.

Koda is so small that he is often mistaken for a battery-operated soft toy.

Standing at 59cm tall, if Koda the horse wants an equal he has to turn to the vetinary cat for company.

You don’t know me!

So I don't know about you, but when I hear someone say "you don't know me" I laugh. People are idiots. And I don't care. Well, maybe "don't care" is a little strong. I don't mind, as long as the idiocy is self-contained. And we are warned. Here's your sign.

Poor Sick People

strip for August / 11 / 2009
Poor Sick People
Well if you haven’t been paying attention, America has gotten kind of nuts here lately. Basically here is what’s happening, from what I can tell. Let me know if I’m getting this wrong, because it actually sounds kind of crazy. The government wants to provide health care for poor people, because in order for poor people to afford good health care, you’d need to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and also count on people to always make good decisions. Also being poor sucks, and there have to be poor people in order for this whole Capitalism thing to work.

This is not necessarily good for the health insurance companies (who you have to fight with sometimes to get them to cover basic stuff), since they’d sort of have competition. So people who make money from the status quo (and the people who didn’t like Obama anyway) started convincing themselves and those who pay attention to them that the new health care program is going to be performing mandatory euthanasia on old people and things like that. And suddenly a lot of people believe that. Like, hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions. They don’t get that if they want to, they’ll still get to pay a thousand dollars a month for the same health care they got before. But now they might have to pay an extra couple bucks a year to help their less fortunate neighbors get kind of cruddy government care. And they have a HUGE PROBLEM with this.

Logic is not the name of the game in America and has not been for quite some time.

Anyway I updated the front page of TopatoCo, something that had been bothering me for a while! And Lucid John‘s gonna help me make it even more extreme now that he’s in town. Now I can get other stuff done, like comics. TTFN!

*Sigh*

Thus begins the decent into socialism.

Working

So, I work at McDonalds. Which is fun. Except I hate some of the people I work with. But I still love working there. Which is rather disaapointing, because when I start going to school in Sup-town, i’m probably going to be quitting or taking a leave of absence.

 That in itself wouldn’t be so bad, but that begs the question of what I’m going to do to support myself during the school year. Any ideas?
