Google adds its Suggest technology to Google News searches, which automatically drops down a list of common terms that match your search as you type.

Sadly no one seems to search Google News for “life hacks,” but it’s interesting to pop in different letters of the alphabet and see what it suggests.

This interesting link was pointed out to undeadly:
I’m sure it isn’t news that OpenBSD has an excellent and informative entry in Wikipedia, but I was pleasantly surprised to go to Wikipedia’s main page and find the entry was
‘Today’s featured article’. Wikipedia has become a wonderful resource and, I think, one of the finest destinations on the internet. This is great (albeit very temporary) visibility for OpenBSD reaching the internet-savy but "non-geek" crowd. Who knows how many bored slackers will click on it?

coldcut barcelona

En un momento en que parece que los grupos de electrónica pura desaparecen, Coldcut demuestra que se puede haer un concierto estupendo sin un sólo instrumento acústico. ¿Quizá son ahora los herederos de Orbital ?

Escuchando el último disco de Coldcut, parece como si los chicos hubiesen dejado el estilo bailable para hacer un sonido más pop o ambient… Pues bien, eso será el disco… porque el directo es brutal, lleno de ritmos breackbeat, y experimentación electrónica.

El dúo Coldcut se hace acompañar en los directos por un experto en turntablish y scratchs, un video jockey y un rapero… en total cinco componentes y unas seis o siete computadoras para el control de la música y las imágenes.

Coldcut in Barcelona

En la parte visual, los vídeos e imágenes muy bien sincronizadas con los samplers… fue divertido ver a C3PO bailando en uno de los videos.

Algo curioso: Al contrario que en casi todo concierto en que no está permitido grabar y/o hacer fotos, desde las radios se hizo un llamamiento para que los asistentes al concierto llevasen cámaras de fotos, de video y grabasen con todo lo que pillasen (incluidos móviles)alguna parte del concierto. El material se puede enviar a una dirección de correo y escogerán parte del material para colgarlo en su web e incluirlo en un próximo DVD del grupo… Por fin una utilización inteligente de los medios…

La anécdota: se fué la luz por un problema de fecsa, no de la sala… parón obligado de 10 minutos (aprovechamos para ir a la zona de fumadores ya que por desgracia ya no se puede fumar en la pista… que p*t*da).

Ya están confirmados para el FIB … pero por favor, que el Sónar los acoja en su seno… es un concierto espíritu sónar 100%.

Aquí un video del live de coldcut en Barcelona con un tema mio llamado The Brain Domination.

Perific Ergonomic Mouse Keeps Hands From Breaking

Perific Ergonomic Mouse Keeps Hands From Breaking

perific.jpgRemember the days of the square-shaped mouse with only two rectangular buttons, with not a mouse wheel in sight? Those things were pretty torturous to use for any extended period of time, mainly because of their unforgiving design.

Perific hopes to eliminate that problem with a new wireless mouse/trackball that forgoes feature bloat in favor of giving your hands a comfortable user experience. The Perific Ergonomic Mouse & Trackball secret to success is that it can be used in a whole bunch of manners, ensuring that your hand isn’t making the same gestures and movements over and over again. Remove its shell and it becomes a normal mouse, but movement is done via the trackball and you can hold it in a variety of different positions.

Further making it easier on your hands, there’s two sets of buttons on either side of the mouse, so you can use it in either mode (with or without shell). The mouse designed to keep your hands free from crippling pain costs $119.
