Rest in Peace My Good Friend Netscape!

On March 1, 2008, the once popular Netscape browser will be dead according to this press release from Netscape (http://blog.netscape.com/2007/12/28/end-of-support-for-netscape-web-browsers/).

It's a sad moment for me as I have had a love/hate relationship with this browser. As a web monkey, I hated how Netscape and IE could not interpret the same code the same way. It did get better as time went on, but it was really too little too late.

So farewell, my old friend Netscape. I will miss your N icon, but I will be thankful for giving me back some hard drive space.

Lunch at the Bayview Park

I decided that I wanted to get away from the office for lunch so I decided to take my sandwich to Bayview Park. The weather was perfect and it was peacefully quiet. I had a restful time listening to the water and the birds. God, I wish I could do that everyday.

Polaroid phases out film production

It would seem that Polaroid, known for photographic prints that develop within moments, is getting out of the film business. According to this article from Boston.com, the company is shutting down production plants and has already halted production of many of their instant cameras.

With the advent of better and more powerful digital cameras and mobile phone camera technology, traditional optical/film photography (even the Instamatic kind) is slowly fading away. Photography supply companies are all trying to adapt to the new technology, but as we all know, "Technological Darwinism" is a cruel and ruthless mistress to those who are not nimble enough to meet her standards..

If you're a fan of the Polaroid film, I'd suggest you start hoarding film for your camera. Once they are gone, the only place you'll see them is in museums or in digital pictures within encyclopedic/historic entries in some wiki about old technology.

The Office Collar


I was digging around Download.com for freeware for defragging my Windows Registry when I came upon this article. I answers the question of what to do if you're unable to concentrate at work. The "Office Collar" was designed by Simone Brewster (Link:http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/2007/04/random-internat.php). Having observed that people working in open office space are constantly distracted by visual stimuli, she suggested they wear one of her collars.

Do you know someone in your office that could use this? Can you picture yourself or someone else in your office wearing one of these? Can you picture your boss? :)
