Some really nice lo-fi games on the Junior Senior site -which is pretty lush itself - which I found trying to get a download of "Move Your Feet". The MP3 seems to be out of action on their site - but thanks to Top of the Pops who have the video in real audio - although it looks like this is only temporary so link while you can.
The only real bit of Bluetooth kit that has impressed me so far was the in-car hands-free kit - sit in the car with your Bluetooth phone in your pocket and you can immeadiately use the hands-free kit. Neat. Anyway forget that now you can control Scaletric like cars using your Bluetooth phone and looking at this pic the most important advance seems to be no slots. I smell a killer-app, which is just as well as Andy and I decided in the pub the other night that Wi-Fi made Bluetooth obsolete (despite the fact that both seem to have their uses and Andy's rolling out Bluetooth laptop & phone combos to his roaming users at work - hey this was a pub conversation we can be illogical).
Separated at birth - Iraq and the Irish county of Monaghan. This is especially for my friend Runa living in Monaghan and now worriedly searching the skies for slightly lost looking allied aircraft.
An absense of posts since my Tuesday night post-fest as this week has offered an unprecedented number of opportunities to go out and have a good time :o) Anyway here's Zed which is a rather nice little platform game.
The Lord Clyde which I'm told is on the shortest street in London (it certainly was very short) where we ended the evening. They're actually from the very end of the evening before I headed off to Waterloo as it wasn't until we got the Guinness hats, which happened late on, that suddenly pictures seemed like an essential plan. There was just a hardcore 5 left at this point most people had made their excuses and left.
A total of 34 lessons in the dos and don'ts of travelling on the The Tube. It's a complex buiness not being a social outcast on London Transport.
The splender of Trogdor is now available in game format. Why are not play along with Strong Bad - avoid getting sworded to earn your chance to deal out some burnination.
Flash makes search engines fun at KartOO. It misses the raw power of El Goog but gains with cool little animated diagrams of how your search results link up. Cute.
As well as being a particulaly fine domain name (which immeadiately made check to see what was at blingbling.com for reasons understandable if you have a conversation with Oliver in my office) shazam.com also offers a genius service. Dial their number from your mobile, point the phone in the direction of any loud music for 30 secs and they'll text you back the name of the track and the artist. Shazam! [via Island.Life]
Jargon.net - Serving Hacker Jargon to the Internet since Jan 1995. Includes jargon of the day and a very complete lexicon of jargon. Despite being dictionary like in form this is all very readable - kind of like looking through an encyclopedia when you were younger - you start reading one thing then next thing you know you've been browsing through the thing for 20 minutes. (or maybe it was just me that did that).
I want you...to populate my database. G33k pick-up lines. I have NOT used any of these. Really.
Wireless broadband enabled Hi-Fi System. The Philips MC-i250 allows you to stream internet radio, your huge MP3 collection, etc direct to your living room stereo from your computer in your g33kish lair. I'm sure there must be a way of starting low range pirate radio with this kind of thing - well maybe - but i'm not that subversive - but there definately seems to be some kind of naughtiness potential and almost certainly room for record companies to throw more toys out of their pram. Can I really justify setting up a Wi-Fi network in a 2 bedroom flat though...hmmm...I think so [via Gizmodo].
