Goodbye Alex.

Hey Alex, it was good working with you. You brought a breathe of fresh air to the company. It’s going to be strange not seeing you in the office or hearing your Kiwi accent. I wish you all the best for the future where ever you end up.

James Allen is a ****

I am NOT surprised to see loads of websites dedicated to "hating James Allen". If you don’t know who this idiot is, then turn on your telly onto ITV on a Sunday when there is a formula 1 race showing.

He is the annoying person telling the viewers about the reason for the ‘white stripes on the wheels‘, and ‘how hard it is to drive a car without traction control’ and he is also the jerk probably sleeping with Lewis ‘fucking’ Hamilton, because according to James Allen, Lewis is the best driver in all time.

Here are few websites, and articles on this idiot and that other idiot Lewis Hamilton.

Digital Spy – a petition to replace the idiot of ITV F1.
Youtube – the idiot going crazy when Jenson Button (another idiot) won his one and only Grand Prix. Listen to James Allen. You would have thought by the way he was going on that Jenson just won the world championship (in his dreams).

Mahalo – Human-Powered Search Engine.

I stumbled upon Mahalo.com this evening, and what a refreshing search engine it is? It has a very modern Web 2.0 feel about it. It kind of draws you in and I found myself spending almost an hour clicking through the various links etc. It’s a breath of fresh air and so different to Google’s dull looking result page. It’s funny how we take things for granted.

I did a search for Cat Allergy and got a guide, a disclaimer and some fast facts and even the top seven links, articles, and campaigns. Impressive to say the least.

"Cat Allergy" are  the words I searched and here is result page. (why not click the link and see what I mean).

Gaming on the Nokia N95.

I was reading a great article over at Allaboutsymbian.com where they have reviewed the Ngage gaming on a Nokia N95. It’s not surprising to read that the N95, which is over a year old is still one of the best phones to play the new generations games. That must say something for this great phone.

Below is an extract taken from that review.

The N95’s combination of a high class phone with an N-Gage-friendly layout and an excellent sharp screen makes it in our opinion the best N-Gage phone available at the moment. And because it’s well over a year old the N95 is now available for a fairly reasonable price, more or less the same as the N81, yet it far exceeds the N81 technically.

If you’re in the market for an N-Gage phone right now, the N95 would be our current recommendation. You may also want to consider its cousin the Nokia N95 8GB, which has a larger screen and multimedia/gaming buttons that are raised from the surface slightly. However, we have heard conflicting reports on whether the 8GB version can use its multimedia keys as gaming keys: some people say they can, others say it doesn’t work.

Still on the topic of phones, I found an awesome phone comparison site called Phone Egg. You can compare just about every phone on the market. I did a few comparisons between my phone and some of the so called "better phones on the market", and the Nokia N95 whipped their arses….

Mobile Phone Comparison
Apple iPhone versus UTC Touch Diamond
Nokia N95 versus Palm Treo 750
Nokia N96 versus Apple iPhone
Nokia N95 versus Apple iPhone
Nokia N95 versus Nokia N96

It’s going to be tough deciding on my next phone, when my contract runs out in a few months time. I still don’t see a better phone on the market.

Stuffonmydesk.com – new photos uploaded.

I finally managed to find some time to upload a batch of photos that people have been sending in.

Stuffonmydesk.com

The idea came about when I was cleaning my desk back in 2005 (I do clean it now and again). I was quite surprised at the number of things I had on my desk. e.g, CD’s, cameras, a mobile phone, a router, switch, old hard drives, speakers, papers, pens, manuals, a server, bills, creative jukebox, a steering wheel, old credit cards, ticket stubs, a card reader, camera bag and some days even the cat. See below (ha ha), and then it got me thinking, what other peoples desks might look like and then and there the web idea was born.

So is your desk a mess, cluttered with papers, pens, cd’s, hardware, reports, toys? Is it filthy beyond imagination or are you proud to sit at it each day & night because it’s inspiring, neat, calm, flashy, layered with every gadget under the sun. This web site is dedicated to your desk.

We would like YOU to send in a photo of your desk so we can show it off to the world. Any desk will do, (corporate, home, school, university, dorm) and all photos will be added according to it’s wow factor, e.g. style, mess, clutter, gadgets, flashiness, boringness, filth etc.

You can email any size JPG, GIF, BMP, TIFF or PNG files to stuffonmydesk@gmail.com

Above is a photo of my desk. It has everything I need on it and even a cat for company, which reminds me, if you would like to take a look at our sister site Cat on my desk, as the name suggests, we are interested in any photos of cats on desks.

Force India want Raikkonen banned (ha!).

 

Force India have made a formal complaint against Kimi Raikkonen and demanded that the World Champion is banned after he shunted the luckless Adrian Sutil out of the Monaco GP.

Banned for what? – Kimi was out of control when he hit Sutil. I am quite sure Kimi didn’t mean to shunt Sutil off the track. It was just one of those BAD LUCK situations. It could have happened to anyone, but of course the rest of the teams have this "thing about Ferrari", no matter who is driving the car. I am glad something like this has happened to another Ferrari driver, because this type of silly claim was all too common when seven times world champion Schumacher was driving.

Wasn’t it an exciting Grand Prix for once. Full of action, crashes etc. The best man on the day one, although luck played a good part in that, which is not a bad thing. All the drivers must have balls of steal to do silly speeds in the rain in those narrow streets of Monaco.
