late pass

the new imac. im a day or two late. but wow.

that keyboard is serious.

my one criticism though: why the black surrounding the screen, and the black casing on the back? why not just straight brushed aluminum? like the desktop version of the macbook pro. that would have been way cleaner.

either way … i’d probably attend any computer camp that was equipped with those bad boys.

upgrade, live up to your new motto.

nerd tattoos

tattoos are a cool art form, but they last forever.  on your body.

it takes some serious dedication to get your favorite video game, or computer company tattoo’d on your leg, no?

here’s some more

but let’s up the ante a bit. what about semi-permanent tattoos?  real looking tattoos, with real needles embedding real ink underneath the top layer of your skin.  imagine how many people would get them, if they could basically just wipe them away whenever they chose to.

thanks to my planning partner in crime, the king of 80’s memoribilia, chris lintz, who’s big idea was to create them — we discovered yesterday that its about to happen (and with that his lifelong entrepreneurial dreams were smashed). MIT is on the case. and they eventually lead me to Freedom-2.  the things we can do these days, with a little nanotechnology. i’ve already decided my first two, giant, semi-permanent tatts will be on my forearms. of dangerous species. one of a shark. and one of a poisonous snake.

imagine that.

national geo in HD pt. 2

ok. seriously. since I get ATLEAST 10 search hits from national geo-related queries each day, I feel compelled to post another gem I watched last night. Inside the Green Beret’s, which was about an Army special forces unit infiltrating taliban villages in afghanistan, was yet another program choice from national geographic that makes it the most dominant channel in HD. If I were to make a pie chart of my television viewing, a really simplified version might look like this (minus the graphic):

47% mtv jams
27% national geographic hd
17% hd movies
9% other channels

i know.  who cares.

here’s a snippet:

too bad youtube is so … “low-definition,” right?

partna lemme upgradeeee you.
