In the fabled words of the e-trade baby "I just bought stock...."
by n0manarmy at 28 January, 2009 - 7:12 AM
I figured, if any time was the time to buy stock, it's now. The tech sector has taken a huge beating along with the rest of the stock market. AMD's stock is roughly $2.30+ a share (which I bought 150 shares of at $2.00 exactly.) The rest of the companies that I know and love, as well as follow, have been thoroughly trounced to the point that it's almost somewhat affordable. We all know AMD and Intel aren't going to go out of business anytime soon, we see them in every facet of our environment. Also NVidia, Microsoft, and HP are still going strong, they're stock's just hurting because everyone else is. I opened up an Ameritrade account and put in the minimum required. I was a little leery at first but now I don't regret it. If the stocks go any lower, which they haven't and I don't foresee that they will, we all know what companies are inherently the foundation of the tech markets and that they'll rebound sooner or later. There may be no better time than now. Just a heads up.

Upgrade Time
by elfie at 27 January, 2009 - 4:23 AM
Computer hardware has advanced enough since I last upgraded the main guts of my PC that at this point if I were to upgrade the CPU, the video card, the RAM, OR the motherboard, I would actually have to upgrade ALL of them at once. And its running slow as balls. XP SP3 won't install. It probably takes a good 5 minutes to fully boot. Once it's booted, it's usable for outlook, itunes, chrome, visual studio, and guild wars, which probably encompasses 95% of my at-home PC use, but I don't enjoy the experience. Nothing feels snappy. I'm always waiting. My laptop is a much better daily-use machine than my desktop right now. So I'm thinking of a couple options of what to do about this.

Enterprise Image/Media Management
by n0manarmy at 26 January, 2009 - 1:38 AM
Anyone have any experience or suggestions for an enterprise image/media management solution? I'm browsing through about 60,000+ images that I've accumulated from our PR Director that left, trying to find one specific image and it's dawned on me that all this shit shouldn't be sitting on her hard drive but on a server somewhere. Is there anything like Flickr or Gallery2 that's enterprise oriented?

Switch to DSL?
by ben at 22 January, 2009 - 3:58 AM
Since I'm in Baltimore City, and they're still fighting Verizon over FiOS, my internet options are limited to DSL or Cable... I was thinking about my latest Comcast bill, and thought... is cable TV REALLY worth $120/month to me? Cavalier is offering $50 a month (+tax & fees, say $65) for phone + DSL, my cable bill is now >$170 per month. I figure in 2 or 3 months, the savings is enough to justify a PS3 or Xbox 360

Amazon Remembers is Awesome
by elfie at 14 January, 2009 - 3:40 AM
So I got an iPhone recently and have been playing around with various apps. Some cool, some useless. The Amazon app is both. Using it for searching and browsing products is pretty pointless. If I already know enough about a product to search for it, I'm probably searching for extra info that is available on their website, but not via the app. For example, last night when I was watching Wanted, I heard NIN on the soundtrack and wanted to see if there was some remix I didn't know about on the physical CD. I searched for "wanted soundtrack" in the amazon app and found it easily, but there is NO way in their app to get the track listing. Completely useless. So I switched to Safari and used the very slick iPhone version of their website, which did let me easily view track info. (If you're curious, no none of the bands feature in the movie are on the CD soundtrack, just Danny Elfman's score.) So the app needs work, but it does have one particularly freaking awesome feature. Amazon Remembers. As far as I know, this is only currently available in their iPhone/iPod Touch app and is not yet available for other mobile devices, but I'm sure that's in the works. Basically it lets you take a picture of ANYTHING, send that picture to Amazon, and they'll try to match your photo with a related product. It's not instant, but it's impressively fast and accurate.

From Mish: We are in a depression. AnarchyX: No shit.
by AnarchyX at 09 January, 2009 - 3:30 PM
I think we have been since 2002 but that's just based on actual employment, GDP and M3 figures. Now we are eating shit: Enjoy because that is all we will have to eat till the 20 30's Yummy. I think that was a piece of corn over there. Can I have it. http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/ "The official unemployment rate is 7.2%. However, if you start counting all the people that want a job but gave up, all the people with part-time jobs that want a full-time job, all the people who dropped off the unemployment rolls because their unemployment benefits ran out, etc., you get a closer picture of what the unemployment rate is. That number is in the last row labeled U-6. It reflects how unemployment feels to the average Joe on the street. U-6 is 13.5%. Note that it was 8.7% a year ago. Both U-6 and U-3 (the so called "official" unemployment number) are poised to rise further. There is no official definition of depression. Here is mine: When the U-6 unemployment rate rises above 12.5 in conjunction with a stock market that is down close to 50%, the CPI is negative, and nominal wages are stagnant, it's an economic depression. We are in one. Looking ahead, I expect the service sector to continue to weaken. Mall vacancy rates are rising and a huge contraction in commercial real estate is finally started. There is no driver for jobs and states in forced cutback mode are making matters far worse. Expect to see the official unemployment rate hit 9% in 2009. Given that unemployment is a lagging indicator, it is likely to continue rising in 2010."

Flickr or Picasa Web Albums?
by muhgcee at 06 January, 2009 - 7:01 AM
Reasons for Flickr: A lot of people use it. It is supposed to be good, I guess? Reasons for Picasa Web Albums: I use the Picasa desktop app. I am moving to more Google applications (GMail, calendar, docs), so it might be good to go all Google. Opinions? One major consideration is the quality of the "premium" accounts, because I'll probably want/need one.

I still keep Stuff White People Like in the humor section of my RSS list because, well, i want to see it get funny again, or perhaps just watch the train wreck it's becoming as its owner finds the futility of keeping this form of comedy going for an extended period of time... anyways, i went to check it today to possibly leave a comment to get lost among the other 97 already there, and make myself feel superior for teasing him about this on his own site - yes, i'm a jerk, and yes the RSS feed tells you how many comments have already been left... but when i got there i saw this, now i just feel bad for him... comments fail?
