"Because we dont have a potato sack."

I had a good laugh today.  There are those few rare times when your children say something that is completely unexpected and oddly funny.

When I came downstairs I found my daughter was jumping around the kitchen inside of a garbage bag making all sorts of noise.  Slightly annoyed that she helped herself to a garbage bag, I sternley asked "Why are you destroying a garbage bag?"  She replied "Because we dont have a potato sack."

Cant argue with that... ;)

Did Apple iPhone invent the Multi-Touch UI? Think different!

We know who took the spotlight, but who envisioned this really? According to the 'pedia Bell Labs and documented further here.  However, these folks have a quite impressive display of it back in 2006.  Check the video to the right for a multimedia "experience" ;)

This site has some really neat projects on it, besides just multi-touch.  Worth a few minutes of life to explore it a bit.

Bullet Proof Fasion

Miguel in Columbia creates bullet proof fashion clothing.   Supposedly Obama was sporting one of his creations during the inauguration.

My next phone - Palm Pre

Finally a smartphone that focuses on Personal Information Management with the elegance of a touch based UI, Palm presents its new flagship product the Palm Pre.   Follow the video to get all of the details (an hour or so viewing).   Im guessing that the magnet / induction power will find more uses than just simple charging (think backpack powered accesories)

Best of all, it runs Linux ;)
