This is going to come as a shocker to a whole bunch of companies (mine included) that moved (or tried to) from Google Apps to a Microsoft platform . Yes I’m smiling about it cause I’m pro-hosted and pro-web apps. Also, Outlook sucks. Below is an extract from Lauren’s blog. REDMOND, Wash., April 1 /PRNewzwire/ [...]

Antarctic Adventure

In: Fun Times, Technology

This was the first computer game I got addicted to back in 1985 with my first MSX computer. Found a MSX emulator for the N900 and immediately remembered this game. I found this video on YouTube with a funny documentary on the game.

Farmville on Facebook

In: Technology

Apps on Facebook have been around for a while now and one of the more popular apps I’ve seen my friends and office colleagues on is Farmville. Everybody is trying to be a farmer. I was least interested in this app but about 10 days back I decided to check this out and created my [...]

If you have a barcode scanning software on your cell phone, point the camera at the image above and click. Its actually a link to my blog. This is an amazing barcode. You can create you own at this link. The idea of this barcode is to have it on t-shirts, posters, magazine where people [...]

In: Kuwait, Technology

Well, I thought I already posted about this last week but since I didn’t, here it is. The not-so-great InfoBiz exhibition took place last week. As usual, there were more cell phone companies than technology companies displaying their wares. And the most eye catching stand was the Wataniya one. They were probably the only ones [...]

Sabre on a 42″ Monitor

In: Fun Times, Technology

This is the height of craziness. Running a command line application on a 42″ screen. Had to pull up Sabre during my demo today and this screen looked really odd compared to the extremely cramped and complicated interface of Dynamics AX.

The Virtual Roundtable

In: Technology

We have had this RoundTable gadget from Polycom lying at the office for sometime now. Its basically a  high-end webcam. It sends out two images to the laptop. The first is a panoramic (360) view of the office. Useful to catch those lazies falling asleep during our calls. And the second is an image of [...]

IP Camera

In: Fun Times, Technology

Smile, my IP address is 192.168.1.12. Probably the dumbest thing to do is have an IP camera advertise its IP address.

Boost Wii Performance With WBFS
