The Foolingest Day Of The Year

Posted by senseichow on April 1, 2007

Its good to know that on this day of all days the tech industry is still devoted to improving our lives through gadgetry.

Check this baby out – Art Lebedev’s Vilcus Dactyloadapter.

For the man whose tireless attempts to electrocute himself have been foiled time and again by the ‘electrocution-unfriendly’ design of modern power outlets!

Just in case you’re worried that this wondrous gadget is but cruel fate, tantalising you yet again with visions of sweet, sweet, electrical nourishment, before dashing your hopes and dreams with the Health and Safety guidelines of evil – fear not, the Art Lebedev website confidently states that “coppper plates are located above and below in the holes, which makes contact a sure thing.”

While you’re at it, be sure to check out the two disclaimers at the bottom of the article.

Browser Wars

Posted by senseichow on March 16, 2007

Safari or Firefox as browser of choice for Macs?

Safari has that native Mac feel, and its fast. But it doesn’t work well with all websites. Gmail makes it crash on my machine (which really sucks). Blogger and WordPress’ post editing options don’t display fully in Safari either. Firefox on the other hand is probably the world’s best web browser. Its extremely secure and is compatible with just about everything. It just doesn’t feel very Mac like and it feels (this is purely subjective) just a little bit slower than Safari.

At the moment I’m using Safari as my default browser and have Firefox set just for editing this blog and using Gmail. (I used to have Camino for this task but in the end I decided might as well just use the original Firefox instead of a slightly watered down version.)

I’m hoping the upcoming improvements to Safari in Leopard will let me finally complete the switch, but who knows, Firefox 3 is coming too. Guess I’ll just have to watch and wait.

Wireless Revolution

Posted by senseichow on August 23, 2006

Somehow ended up buying both an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Wireless Mouse to go with my Macbook Pro. Just trying them out, and I gotta say, they’re both great. Both work through Bluetooth unlike the crappy Microsoft Wireless Mouse I had before, the keyboard feels really smooth to type on, and the Mouse is extremely responsive.

Damn you Apple! When will you stop making quality must buy products so I can finally start saving up some money!!
