Rubin just pointed out Eye-Fi to me. I signed up instantly and can’t wait till I can upload pictures directly from my camera. Now if they could just squeeze a GPS receiver on there I’d be one happy camera geek.

Get the aluminum foil ready

Posted in Geek, News at 11:05 am by divinity

I’m so happy that I got my passport renewed earlier this year, and got a good old-fashioned one without RFID. But I’m not sure how I feel about the airport in the city I’m moving to being the first one to install the readers. This is not a security measure. This is an easy way to track your movement. Also an easy way for people to steal your information. While you’ll definitely notice someone reaching into your pocket for your passport, you may not notice the guy quietly sitting with his laptop in the terminal, downloading data from your RFID enabled passport.

Tired of being able to fit your camera in your pocket? Feel like you should be carrying around a computer to store super high resolution photos on? Have several thousand dollars to spend? Well then you need a Seitz! Some stats:

# Create a high resolution 6×17 digital image (160 million pixels) in
one second!
# User-friendly camera system and software with 640×480 pixel colour touch screen for perfect preview, editing, zooming and image control
# State-of-the art computer technology with gigabit Ethernet file transfer, powerful portable mini-computer (storage device) and handheld control device (PDA) with IP network WLAN connection

And yes, that is a Mac Mini in the pictures. Images so big you need a Mac Mini to store them. At least you can sit down and load up Photoshop and edit your pictures right there on the beach!

More Info and Buy it!

Pandora + Last.fm

Posted in Cool Sites, Geek, Useful Stuff at 10:00 am by divinity

I love Pandora, it seems to always know what I want to hear. I also like Last.fm because I’m a bit of a stats junkie and it’s interesting to see what my listening patterns truly are. Now I can combine the two with a great FireFox plugin.

Posted in Geek, Useful Stuff at 9:53 am by divinity

Wondering what to do with your life/company/free time? I’ve always dreamed of starting up my own thing, and doing something that would benefit the world.

Caltrain commuter rail pulls WiMAX at 79 mph – Engadget
“The Caltrain commuter rail service has hooked up 16 miles of their track between Millbrae and Palo Alto, using WiMAX backbone from Redline, connectivity from Nomad and in-train WiFi routers from Sensoria to provide speedy connections to commuters while traveling at 79 mph”

Yay! My commute in California just got a lot better! Maybe they’ll have the whole line hooked up by the end of the year. I can hope, right? Otherwise I’ll only get a few minutes of a connection, but enough to pull down and send email.
