Your joke wasn't funny!

, posted: 22-Jul-2010 12:15

Jokes are funny, but even it has its limit.

I had my fair share of practical jokes, either giving them or be given them. But they don't go out to strangers and people you don't know!

This morning, we got woken up at 5am by a "looking for xyz" call, which seconds after answering it we knew it's a prank call. The number was recorded as "private". Then second after hanging the last call up, it rang again, and this time I let Dean answered it and he got the same "looking fo (read the entire post)...

So well… we’re at the last day of the first six month of 2010. Amazingly how the year has moved so fast! (read the entire post)...



Telecom XT Pricing Plans Announced

, posted: 28-May-2009 15:58

Well... It's not a big surprise but certainly much simpler to understand and easier to use pricing plans.

The good thing is sharing the minutes with a small group of people, great for small team. Calls are per second, and to ANY national network (i.e. NZ numbers). TXT and Data plans are acceptable and reasonable, nothing too stellar however it would certainly encourage people to use mobile data more, now that it's priced competitively similar to Vodafone NZ. TXT plans are somewhat d (read the entire post)...

Nintendo in NZ is in jeopardy - Softprint Interactive in receivership

, posted: 3-Jun-2008 16:24

As the blog title mentioned... All Nintendo activities in NZ will severely be affected due to the key and only distributor in NZ for Nintendo (as well as Activision) is under receivership with all stocks currently being held up in the process.

This is the key reason why NZ hasn't got Mario Kart for Wii officially through other channels and retails other than EB stores. This could also mean all future Nintento Wii and DS titles are in big shakeup until Nintendo can find a new distrib (read the entire post)...



NZHerald tech writer needs to get clued up!

, posted: 28-May-2008 12:00

I was just browsing NZ Herald website, and spotted this news article about Adobe releases Creative Suite betas and thought it is interesting for a read.

However I spotted this paragraph and had to think twice about what product the author was referring to: "The company, which began selling its CS3 group of design programs in the spring of 2007, has released beta versions of its Dreamworks website creation software, Fireworks graphics program and Soundbooth audio editing program on i (read the entire post)...



Underperforming XBLA games to be delisted!

, posted: 28-May-2008 11:22

Seems like some of those retro or rare XBLA (Xbox Live Arcard) games will be delisted if they're not performing to what Microsoft felt the level of good performance be. [Google search]

I don't understand this approach and certainly don't like this decision. XBLA has games that one may not able to find anywhere else, and the high price tag certainly isn't making them more appealling to new/first time buyer.

It seems like, for these games, they're priced at 800 MS points (read the entire post)...



Apple new MacBook and MacBook Pro

, posted: 27-Feb-2008 07:56

Now they come with Penryn core. With MacBook speed bumped to 2.4GHz on the "Better" and "Best", and not just that... they too come with 2GB memory as standard (about time!)

The MacBook Pro has got the speed bumped up to 2.5GHz on 17" with option to CTO to 2.6GHz.

And they all will have multitouch pad built in, so they can be as cool as their sister Air.

I have hold off trying/wanting to get a MacBook/Pro because the imminent upgrade was due very very soon a (read the entire post)...



[Update] Logitech Harmony 880 Review

, posted: 21-Feb-2008 19:40

Recently I just got a Logitech Harmony 880 after many months of consideration, and to replace a handful of remote controls. So head over here and have a read.

It is also my first proper review... hope it is worth the read.

Cheers.

Update: I've added a link to the Harmony Remote member site. From here you can create an account and check out the (poor) web version of the application you use for Harmony Remotes. If you're a new buy, this can be useful to check (read the entire post)...
