Microsoft(tm) Surface(tm)David

Wed, 22 Aug 2007 15:43:02 +0000

I get it now!  Microsoft Surface is a huge iPhone.   Well, OK, the iPhone doesn’t do anything when you set a drink on it.  But Surface can’t make phone calls.  Advantage Apple!  Advertisements

Police HeadcamsDavid

Thu, 19 Jul 2007 14:26:20 +0000

Tim blogs that UK police are to be equipped with helmetcams and video recorders. One quote struck me as troubling … Officers would turn the devices on and off at their discretion, speaking into the camera after turning it on to explain where, when and why they were starting it. A second explanation was required […]

O’Reilly Radar posted yesterday about OpenLibrary. So right away I thought of LibraryThing and find out that Tim’s already involved. This seems like a great idea for several reasons. First there’s no proprietary control of the data as with Google Books. Second is that there’s a open wiki, it seems mostly for metadata but other […]

Astronomy Picture of the Day is a great site that every day has a picture and explanatory text with many links to further explore. Galaxy Zoo lets you do real scientific research that computers can’t do. Sort of a HotOrNot for space. But the most amazing thing is the goal Bill Stone has set for […]

Fri, 13 Jul 2007 15:50:23 +0000

Flamenco is a search interface with “the primary design goal of allowing users to move through large information spaces in a flexible manner without feeling lost.” It is a fine tool with the ability to refine and group the category selections. The user interface does let the user navigate and know where they are in […]

The Universe of Jonathan HarrisDavid

Fri, 13 Jul 2007 03:23:39 +0000

Jonathan Harris recently released a project called Universe.  It is an interesting way of exploring information space if you’re looking for a way to see the constellation of connected stories in an artsy kind of way.  However as a practical way of finding specific information I would use another tool.  One thing that bothers me is the […]

Video Fast ForwardDavid

Thu, 12 Jul 2007 20:47:57 +0000

Why don’t the on-line video players have fast forward buttons?  I would watch more videos if watching didn’t take so long.  And while they’re at it, adjust the pitch of the audio playback so voices don’t sound like chipmunks.  There’s a bunch of players so this is far from an exhaustive list but I didn’t […]

We were talking at the Refresh Phoenix After Party last night about all the seemingly stupid ideas that actually made it … Million Dollar Home Page Red Paperclip your example goes here It’s a space for the lone entreprenuer that the VCs and angels can’t and wouldn’t touch.
