Finding a new keyboard

I know it’s a bit geeky, but I want a new keyboard. Sometimes my keys on mine don’t engage properly and it’s frustrating. I’ve got one of those new Dell space saver jobbies at work which is simple and all I need. But do you know how hard it is to find it on their crappy website!? Very. Only because I know someone who works there did I manage to find the part number and subsequently, the item itself.

Looking around Digg, I found the Das Keyboard which has no inscriptions on the key what-so-ever. The idea is that you’ll force yourself to memorise the keys by their location, increasing your productivity. That’s all very well, but it’s damn ugly. For $80, why not buy a cheap one and scrub the letters off?

Blurred vision

A long time ago, in the height of Britpop, there was a Oasis vs Blur battle of singles. I did really like Oasis when they releases ‘Definitely Maybe’, and yes, they’re touring much bigger venues now, and yes they’ve got a bassist from my all time favourite band Ride. But in the last ten years, … Continue reading “Blurred vision”

A long time ago, in the height of Britpop, there was a Oasis vs Blur battle of singles. I did really like Oasis when they releases ‘Definitely Maybe’, and yes, they’re touring much bigger venues now, and yes they’ve got a bassist from my all time favourite band Ride. But in the last ten years, I really don’t think they’ve progressed. Blur on the other hand, have experiment and now, Damon Albarn’s side project The Gorillaz have announced they’ll tour in 3D. Although, the prospect of seeing a pre-recorded set doesn’t appeal, I think this proves much greater invitation from southerners by embracing technology and breaking the musical boundaries rather than insistent bickering and claiming they’re the greatest.

Everything about Halo

I found this handy website which lists every little detail about Halo2. Being a wiki, it means all the kids with nothing better to do can share all their tips and tricks. I found the Carney Holes and Headset Tricks very useful. Ever wondered how to master that Plasma Pistol that gets you every time?

Expensive iPod accessory

BMW have just placed a ‘1 Series with iPod connection’ ad at the bottom of my road which led to me finding iPod you BMW. I’ve been waiting for someone to release some slick iPod/car integration and I was hoping this would be a good start. I’m left disappointed. It looks as though they’re still … Continue reading “Expensive iPod accessory”

I was trying to buy a couple of CDs this morning. CD-Wow gave me the best rate so I attempted to purchase the items by clicking the ‘Add To Cart’ button. I logged in to the site with no problems, but then realised I could not see the shopping cart. After 3 frustrating minutes of searching through the site, I gave up and bought the items from Play.
