iPhoto ’09

January 7, 2009

While in the McDonalds Drive-Through yesterday I experienced some embarrassingly low technology. Being the cheapskate I am, I attempted to give the cashier a handful of quarters along with my credit card. The cashier told me he can’t do both cash and credit. It’s now 2009, and McDonalds can’t handle multiple payment options.

On the flip side Apple has added face recognition and GPS tagging to iPhoto ’09. The Lord Jesus Christ has possessed the new iPhoto with his holiness. You can now tell iPhoto what one of your friends looks like and iPhoto will automatically look through your other photos and find your friends for you. iPhoto sideshow’s now use face recognition to center faces and crop your photos for more professional looking sideshows.

Also iPhoto now syncs with Facebook and Flickr. Once photos are posted on Facebook, any extra tagging that occurs will filter back through to your iPhoto.

I used up the rest of my iTunes money and bought the Neil Diamond Essentials, I’ll be rocking out today.

Ashley and I are terribly impatient.  Last night at about 6:00PM, we impulsively decided to have Christmas 8 days early.  My goodness did I make out well!

Britney Spears – Circus

I made it though the album on my way in to work this morning.  Most of the songs are just OK.  I think about 3 or so songs are really good.  And there is one really awkward song entitled “My Baby” about…. her baby.

Moon in My Room

The Moon in My Room is awesome, you hang the moon on the wall and you can set it to light up in whatever phase you so choose.  It’s for ages 6 and up.

Apple iPhones are going to be sold for $100.00 before the new year at Wal-Mart!  Remember when iPhones were $500.00 about a year ago?  Also some other poor guy died at Wal-Mart.  He stole a bunch of stuff and an employee and some other guy held in face down in the parking lot until he mysteriously died.

Apple pulled a virus warning from thier website because it was “Bad PR.”  Apparently there was a page that recommended users use anti-virus software, but that scared Mac users so they took it down.  Some big wig just claimed the page was outdated and therefore no longer relevant.

Obama was caught using a Zune!  Some news website crashed the other day because word of him using a Zune caused so much traffic that it temporarily went down.  According to the report, he usually uses and iPod, but this particular day, he was Zuning.

Cloud OS

December 2, 2008

Cloud Operating Systems are web based operating systems (or more appropriately titled operating environments). This sounds extreme at first glance, but it’s the next natural progression. With storing photos, videos, documents, and all kinds of other applications on-line, it only makes sense to push Google further passed iGoogle to the full experience of Google OS, being calledGood OS or gOS. Now you will be able to have the exact same desktop no matter what computer you are on; PC, Mac, phone, or gaming system, all physical computers will cease to be the personal computer, instead they become terminals that connect you to your virtual. computer. I can’t wait.

Apple had quite the shout-out on The Simpsons.
