Note: I don’t use either Apple nor Microsoft Products – I use my lovely Linux!

IPhone is just a great piece, but I came across this movie that shows how Microsoft would redesign (or marketing) IPhone – well, IPhone should have such way of marketing ­čÖé

getting apt workig with Ubuntu

by the principal of knowledge sharing, I wish this would save someone’s time.

I installed ubuntu and tried installing some packages, then I got: please insert cdrom …. bla bla. while I want apt to look on the remote servers!

well, to solve the problem: go to /etc/apt/sources.list and comment the line talking about cdrom.

That is it!

Good Bye Passwords is the Best describes Vidoop, it’s an OpenID like mechanism that enables decentralized SSO but with no password, well, your password is a 3-5 images that are attached to categories where it’s almost impossible for computers to hack your password – so far, at least – since it needs a human setting at your computer – watching you – or an AI program that can analyze your selection.This is really Rings the Bell for standards where community should be working due. I wish Big web players (Google, yahoo, etc .. ) is considering such services for their widely used services.

Give it a try Here.

Last Night was really a mix of mad, I returned home at 7, got a call from a friend at 7:10 that guys are at his home! well, we have a bunch of movies, yeah, comedy, action, and somewhat horror; a bit old, but we are all busy.

we started watching and end up at 3:00 after mid night … I am feeling a bit tired this day.

yes, forgot to tell that we were watching – in order – :

  • Running scare: good and I felt respectful by the author and the Director of the movie, why? it’s a kind of movie that you watch it step by step to get the idea, and every sign (that is really rational to happen) has role in the movie. I really got enjoyed.
  • A comedy Movie: we laugh alot!
  • Final Destination 3: Not bad though I don’t like such a movie type – BTW; I am watching it for the 1000th time – No Strong Idea – we all know there something called death, and we don’t know how, when and where we gonna die, and Thanks God – that is better we don’t know – so, we can continue our lives and leave the life continue the way it should!

we loved to see Hills have eyes, but the DVD got corrupted, uhu … catch you next time.

That is my last night events ­čśŤ and I am feeling sleepy this day. wish to complete my working day without someone got to wake me up.
