What sex is your writing?

The Gender Genie

This is great.  I hide nothing from my loyal 4 readers.  Heck, you can check.  Some posts come up as female.  Some as mail.  Rest assured dear readers, all written by me.  I’m not farming out my blogging to a team of bloggers, nosireebob.

35k or 90k

400hp hybrid sports car for $35,000 – Geekologie

It doesn’t look nearly as good as the Tesla (mmmm, Lotus goodness…) but for 35k, I’d get this and not the Tesla.  Of course the Tesla is 100% electric and this is a hybrid, but still….

Ridiculous

New tattoo ink means “4ever” neednt be permanent – Engadget

I’m totally against this.  Part of the allure of the tattoo is the permanence.  And that should be part of the reason not to get one if you aren’t into it.  And the permanence should be punishment for the idiots who get cartoon characters and whatnot.

Windows Vista security flaw discovered – Security – MSNBC.com

The flaw affects older Windows systems, too, and Hypponen said vulnerabilities like these are quite common and can be fixed with a software patch

haha, that was quick. This doesn’t sound like a big deal. I just love that MS’s answer is basically “Oh, we’ll patch it… don’t sweat it…” hahaha

I want the next step

Wired 15.01: The Perfect Human

“Forgoing sleep is the only way I’ve figured out how to fit it all in,” he says.

Good enough for Dean, good enough for me.  In fact that’s my exact sentiment.  Even though these days, even on the low sleep levels, I’m not getting things done.  Such is life I guess…

Jack Spade Prison Key Ring – Luxist

So, $75.  Not “outrageous” for a “designer” (e.g. Jack Spade) key ring.  BUT, it’s a keyring made by prisoners!  So a $5 key tassle from the prison gift shop, ends up being $75 because it’s on a key ring with Jack Spade’s name on it.

I think this is short sighted

GigaGamez » Archive » PS3s Being Traded For Wiis

So trading for Wii, eh?  I can’t deny the allure of the Wii, I want one (as much as I fear the novelty will wear off after a week or two).  But to trade the PS3 for a Wii?  I don’t know.  Maybe I’m a Sony whore (I’m not).  Maybe I’m just really into movies (I am) and my tv is a 1080p set so I don’t have to worry about crippled firmware (it is).  Maybe people want the “fun” console in time for Christmas.  But I’d rather the PS3 and bluray movie playback, mmmm…..

When did it become irrelevant?

Fan Asks Hard Questions About Rap Music – New York Times

Another high school student at the Chicago event, Vasawa Robinson, 19, said rap showed “real life” and that “if you try to show a different picture, the kids won’t want to listen.” The more political, socially conscious rap, Vasawa said, was for an older generation.

This is crazy!  Political, socially conscious anything/everything should be relevant and important to all generations.  I don’t understand how a generation can just forgo important messages given to them in a medium they prefer in lieu of misogynistic hateful messages.
