Microsoft Surfacing Computing

I guess we all saw the multi touch system which was on YouTube quite sometime ago, but wait until you see the video of Microsoft Surfacing Computing. It took my breath away. I was like WTF? Is this even possible.

The launch of Microsoft Surface marks the beginning of a new technology category and a user-interface revolution. Surface, Microsofts first surface computer, provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural hand gestures, touch and physical objects. Surface computing breaks down traditional barriers between people and technology, changing the way people interact with all kinds of everyday information ” from photos to maps to menus.

Caught Next last week at GV VivoCity, the movie was not bad, slightly above average. My eyes was glued to the big screen practically throughout the whole movie, it was quite a action packed flim. Next movie I am going to watch is POTC 3: At World’s End at GV VivoCity also, I got 4 free tickets thanks to my mom and OCBC =D

Been busy doing lots of web programming, both for my freelance job and WordPress plugins. I hope I can finished my freelance job ASAP and get the rest of the money (60%). 40% was paid to me upfront. My client is quite good, he did the design and I did the programming and translating psd layout to xhtml layout. And the changes that he made are always very minor. I can’t stand those noob clients who keep changing and changing and those changes are major changes, we are talking about layout and not typos/font/alignment/position. Screw them.

WordPress 2.2

WordPress 2.2

WordPress 2.2 has been released and as usual I have updated GaMerZ.WordPress to it. Here are the goodies copy + paste from WordPress.org.

» WordPress Widgets allow you to easily rearrange and customize areas of your weblog (usually sidebars) with drag-and-drop simplicity. This functionality was originally available as a plugin Widgets are now included by default in the core code, significantly cleaned up, and enabled for the default themes.
» Full Atom support, including updating our Atom feeds to use the 1.0 standard spec and including an implementation of the Atom Publishing API to complement our XML-RPC interface.
» A new Blogger importer that is able to handle the latest version of Googles Blogger product and seamlessly import posts and comments without any user interaction beyond entering your login.
» Infinite comment stream, meaning that on your Edit Comments page when you delete or spam a comment using the AJAX links under each comment it will bring in another comment in the background so you always have 20 items on the page. (I know it sounds geeky, but try it!)
» We now protect you from activating a plugin or editing a file that will break your blog.
» Core plugin and filter speed optimizations should make everything feel a bit more snappy and lighter on your server.
» Weve added a hook for WYSIWYG support in a future version of Safari.

28 Weeks Later
Caught 28 Weeks Later at The Cathay, it is my first time watching movie there and the building is confusing and the carpark is bloody cramp and small. GV VivoCity still rocks.

Anyway, the show was quite average only, I think 28 Days Later was better, I wonder will there be 28 Months Later. It was not really a scary show but LiXiang being a penguin was scared to death and could not sleep the whole night. Don’t see her so fierce, but actually she is timid and the only thing she is not scared of is me!

Spiderman 3
Caught Spiderman 3 at Lido with LiXiang and her friends after eating a Sushi buffet from Suki Sushi which is located at Cineleisure level 4. I think it will be my first and last time eating at Suki Sushi because the food there sucks. Sakae Sushi is so much better. I think among all the budget sushi eatery outlets, Sakae Sushi is still the best.

Spiderman 3 was damn boring, the action part was so short and plain, Spiderman 2 was way better. Lets hope if there is a Spiderman 4 it will be good. Because from my point of view, Spiderman 1 sucks, Spiderman 2 was ok, Spiderman 3 sucks and Spiderman 4 should be ok.

Crumpler Bags

Crumpler Bags
· ·

Initially I wanted to get 2 Crumpler bags from a Mass Order (MO) in Hardwarezone. But it was a flock and I got my refund back. I paid promptly and some other faggots just refused to pay and back out suddenly when the organizer wanted to place order and ask them for money. The MO was not much cheaper anyway, it was also about 10% and I paid $280 for the 2 bags listed below.

Instead I got the Crumpler bags from the Crumpler store located at Raffles City. I got myself “The Part and Parcel (Blue) (PP01A)” for $216 and got for LiXiang “The Headaitch (L) (Brown) (HD0102A)” for $96. Used my brother Apple Card and get a 10% off total bill and it amounted to $279.90 which is 10 cents cheaper than from the MO. LOL
