Apple iSlate Picture… oh well, iPad

December 28, 2009

Apple Mac iSlate

This seems to be the iSlate, Apple’s tablet computer due to be announced in a Keynote in January 2010. Apple may have pushed the Taiwanese touchscreen producer to leak the picture, as rumor and suspense is standard operating Apple marketing strategy. The iSlate rumor already drove up the Apple shares.

The iSlate is a touchscreen Macbook with Wifi and a data phone connection. So wait for end of January: like with the iPhone presentation, reality might be more impressive than the rumors.

December 5, 2009

Google TrikeThanks to Trike, Google’s Streetview camera bike, you can now strawl through Pompeii, the ancient Roman city near Naples. Pompeii was buried under 20 meters of volcano waste during an eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 BC. The lost town was only rediscovered in 1748. Its excavation has provided detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. You can now visit Pompeii from your laptop and evade running into the  2,5 annual tourists.

SBS6_PIETS_WEER_20091030_2333Yani plays rugby for the Pickwick Players in Deventer. On Friday, October 30,  Piet Paulusma’s weather show was recorded on their fields, broadcasted by the Dutch channel SBS6 on the same day. SBS6 uses the “playout automation” by the French software company SGT.  I worked there; my son was automated by my former employer.

It’s a bit long, for sure if you don’t understand Dutch. Some Dutch have that problem too, as Piet is from the north. So as soon as you’ve got the idea,  just proceed to around 3:45…

Results surprise now and then. I just started this blog and just started Twittering… I am not the only Martinus Meiborg. At the time my family maintained a pretty straightforward naming convention. So there is another, a cousin who immigrated to Brazil over 20 years ago. Within a day or so, my cousin’s daughter found me on Twitter.
