For the die-hard Apple fanboys, a Quicktime stream of the keynote speech given by Phil Schiller is now online.
I just started reading Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother using one of his ebooks he has relesed under the Creative Commons license.
I have to admit that I had never heard of Cory of BoingBoing fame, or his books until I read about them via CelticBear.
As a ‘paranoid’ geeked I’m hooked on Little Brother, and if you like tech, geek and drama you should check it out as well.
Update: I went to buy a copy from a local bookstore, but it is not released in Australia yet. You can read the ebook or buy it from amazon.
A number of weeks ago I gave up caffeine, and was pretty OK with that. But, I have come to the conclusion that there is a direct correlation with Caffeine and all other things tech, including tech blogging.
As you may have noticed if you subscribed to my feed, or read this site, my posts have been minimal.
Yet after having caffeine on the weekend in an energy drink, and subsequently picking up where I left of with decent illy coffee, I have had the urge to blog again. Nothing tech yet – but here I am.
I’m back baby!
I am coming back to earth with my posts, and thinking about Google.
They are growing by acquiring technology and companies. They release new products like the Java/Linux based Android (Is linking to google news about Google considered irony?!). How long before Google exceed Microsoft?
I remember when their shares where $100.
Then months ago I was discussing with friends that $600 was an amazing price to reach.
Then weeks ago was amazed that each share had grown from $600 to $670.
Today I looked and – USD$725.65 PER SHARE!. They have gone up 2% in one day. That gives Google a market capitalisation of 226.5 BILLION US Dollars. Microsoft still holds the lead (in the Tech Sector) on USD$343.63B.
Where will this madness stop? Will it be when we see economic collapse of the Western countries as we know them? Will it be 2012? There are changes afoot for sure.
