iTV

September 12, 2006

I typically don’t keep up with Apple at all, but they anounced some big things today with iTunes. I have a shuffle and my wife has a Nano. Near the end of the linked article below, Steve Jobs anounced a device called iTV (for now). This device will connect to your (HD)TV and connect to a network via 802.11. Through this connection you will be able to interact with any media that you purchased or have access to through iTunes. So any movies, TV shows or music will be accessible on your TV for consumption. The price as of now $299.00.

Why do I like this solution better than Media Center PC? Because I don’t have to buy another computer to achieve the same results. I can use what I have.

Rhythm and Roots

I don’t enjoy all of the music going on there but the environment is awesome. You should come down, eat with us and hear some music from all over. http://www.bristolrhythm.com/

Well I’m in the Carolinas right now. It shouldn’t be too bad but the weather will suck driving back home. God bless to my family in fla.

Google’s version of comedy..

August 11, 2006

While searching google, I noticed the video link above the search box so I clicked on it. I saw a bunch of junk results because my initial search really didn’t apply to video.

O’well since it’s Friday I clicked the Comedy drop down looking for some laughs only to find “Windows Vista Speech Recognition Demo Gone Awry” at the top of the list!” Wow so much for prank phone calls or people stepping on flamming bags of poo. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think the world is searching for this video, plus I wouldn’t have expected it at the top of the comedy section.

Sorry Larry…. 😦 When are you going to be on Channel 9 again?


Almost done….

A shot (1 screen) of my most recent project that I shall call…SPMS (Shipping Photo Management System).

The application queries Sql Server for shipment information and provides the client with an interface to store images. The shipment information and images are then saved in Sql Server. They can be queried later through search functions in the app.

The image below is what the client sees when reviewing a shipment. When dealing with internal or external questions the client can email or print photos along with shipment info in an effort to resolve any issues.

….well I’d like to think so, but we’ll see what happens. I hope to share some of my code, thoughts about tech and other things in general.
