Yesterday I stopped thinking of my Nokia N800 as merely a handy albeit flawed media player and e-mail device but as an awesome tool. At college I noticed I had forgotten to take along an important document. I knew I had it at home but getting someone to mail it to me seemed rather inconvenient, since giving all the instructions to find it and mail it seemed to be a bother. Then it occurred to me...

RoelG: Soundamus checks your last.fm favorite artists against a list of new and upcoming album releases. Looks like a winner! I buy a lot of CDs. In trying to keep up with which of my favourite artists are releasing new CDs, I’ve had a habit of checking Metacritic’s upcoming releases calendar, the 17dots blog and eMusic’s woefully inadequate New Releases page for new releases....

Forrester research predicts that come the end of 2008, there’ll be a billion computers in use throughout the...
So, our (jazz/funk-oriented) big band’s still without a name. The music school we’re connected to is located between the “Midway” and the “Highway”, among other streets. The translation of those phrases from dutch is literal. “Hogeweg” does not actually mean highway in dutch. This has led to some name ideas due to the creative thinking of some of...

This has been making my e-mail inbox a hell at the moment. I often rely on knowing immediately when i receive something important by, for example, the flashy lights of my Nokia N800, but nowadays 99% is backscatter, which all passes GMail’s filters.
