  1. Convergence

    by , 22nd December 2008 at 09:47 AM
    Today I find myself wanting to blog again, and once again it'd the good ol' PS3 that's caught my attention. I have finally achieved the coveted prize of 'convergence'. Though it's by no means perfect the future is here.

    For the past however meny years I've been paying the local cable company an extortionate amount of money for their 'V+' box. Digital TV, Video Recorder and OnDemand service all in one. The problems being their high price and small quick to fill hard drive. Also, ...
  2. iTunes Music Quiz

    by , 28th November 2008 at 10:29 PM
    Okay, so my sister has asked me to organise a music quiz as a party game this crimbo based on the contents of my infamous iTunes library.

    I thought I'd search the net to see if there's a piece of software to help me do this.

    Haven't (yet) found what I'm looking for but did find this quiz which I thought would make a good blog entry. Feel free to try the quiz yourself and post your results as a comment

  3. The problem with the Playstation 4

    by , 8th November 2008 at 04:46 PM
    So, I'm an avid music fan (understatement) and I own a PS3. Putting these two facts together mean I naturally like a certain type of game - Singstar and Rock Band. I'm counting the days till the release of Guitar Hero World Tour.

    My PS3 has a 40Gb hard disk that must be getting quite full now with all the songs have been downloading for the aforementioned games. So next spring I plan to get a 500Gb hard drive and a PlayTV tuner.

    The PS3 will become my complete ...

  5. Thrill the World 2008

    by , 26th October 2008 at 03:25 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    Last night, 111 people (mostly kids, a couple of members of staff) took part in the 2008 'Thrill the World' record attempt for the largest number of simultaneous people dancing the 'Thriller' dance.

    Overall, there were more then 3,700 people dancing around the world, in the USA, Canada, Germany, Ireland and many more.

    If anyone is interested in seeing our school do the dance, take a look at the youtube video:

  6. VOIP

    by , 19th October 2008 at 01:40 PM (Wandering lonely as a clown...)
    I've been thinking lately about school phone usage and wondering why we aren't moving to VOIP in schools.

    For example, at the moment, if we wish to call our LEA or a local school, we have to dial out via a PSTN line and pay a call charge. Whilst at the same time we have a perfectly usable high quality fibre-optic internet connection. Surely introducing a VOIP phone system across schools would be fairly simple - I could outfit all our local schools with suitable Asterisk based systems ...

  10. 2009: Apple unveil iPod Grain

    by , 10th September 2008 at 10:37 AM
    At an exclusive product unveiling today (just 3 months since the last iPod hit the shelves), Steve Jobs of Apple announced they have developed and are about to release the smallest iPod to date. The iPod Grain, as the name implies, is about the size of a grain of sand. The new addition to the music player line-up from the Jesus Phone maker comes with a non-expandable 1TB of flash memory for all your songs.

    Speaking of songs, the Grain exclusively plays formats in Apple's proprietary ...
