Well after having used my Macbook Air for quite some time I have to say it really rocks. I have had it in meetings, carried it all around, used it on the go and it has been my primary machine at home the whole time (I do have an iMac at work as well).Â I have not been hampered in any way by the lack of extra ports or media drive (over the years I have never really used them either). I feel the same way about the removable battery. I have always carried a spare but have rarely if ever used it. After having had to lug around and use a large number of different laptops in the last decade this is by far my favorite.Â
Dave Delaney on Twitter sent out a link today to a blog by a guy named Jay Charles. Jay appears to be a pretty gifted programmer/hardware hacker as he has setup a remote control car that visitors to his site can control. Through a camera attached to the car and using your arrow keys on the keyboard you get to zip around his office. No kidding. Head on over here and you will be placed in a queue to take control of the car. In his blog post comments he mentions his desire to add more cars. I cannot wait to see that and of course the tutorial of how he put it all together. Sweet!
Screenspace that is. In my quest to be ever more productive and very much geeky at the same time I tricked out my office a bit. Took an old receiver and speakers and installed 5:1 surround sound system. Then I added another video card to the PC and put a 3rd monitor on my desk. Something was still missing though. Since I had a connection for yet another monitor I got creative. As you can see in the picture below I bought a wall mount and put the 4th monitor on the wall. I can now drag powerpoints, videos etc up to the wall to watch or show to others.
I don’t know how much more productive I will be but it sure is geeky!
I love gadgets! Phones, PDAs, MP3 Players, Cameras, Camcorders, PCs, Laptops and any combination of any of the previously mentioned items are my favorite.
I purchased the new phone recently and wound up digging out all my old phones from the last 5 years. Took a picture of them all lined up with my new camera phone.
I find it interesting that I started with a Motorola flip phone and have reverted to them for the last couple phones (I do still keep a XV6700 Pocket PC for mobile email and of course my built in mobile broadband for my laptop).
