TeraCopy a must have utility. But it could be so much better with UFD

Windows 7 (vista) finally integrated DISPLAY of copy speed into the explorer widget.. yay?  It’s always been fun to watch the transfer rate in XP and prior windowses.  But for UFD I would like nearish realtime  remaining space remaining count next to the transfer rate in the TeraCopy window.  It already shows this information when there is insufficient space on the target volume.  Say a given copy required 3 gigs of space.  As one freed the displayed space the required amount would decrease commensurately.

Yes, my grammar is fantastic today for reasons I shall not be sharing.

UFD : USB Flash Drive

CodeSector also makes creepy products made possible by google’s whole new line of creepyware including android

“Show me your papers?”  nah… simply use android and as many “free” google products as possible

Google would never ever treat people as individual items in a global inventory!

new gadget trend: designed by feckless engineers for imbecilic customers — applies equally as well to ‘phones’

Filed under: CIO, gear — Seth Wisely @ 15:50

The iphone embodies the latter group essentially.

.

I was riding home in a friend’s car when friend received a picture message on the phone.  Having decidedly the best reply myself I was elected to send said reply.

Most phones have ‘soft touch’ buttons, or buttons whose function is governed by what appears on screen nearest it.  Natually that was the button I mashed.  No response from phone.  I mashed it down further for longer.  No response from phone.  Seeing the difficulty I was having friend took possession of phone saying “like this”.  Friend clicked a button for menu, navigated down three levels through menus to select text reply (to image message)

Really?  That GUI team needs to be flogged.

There were soft touch buttons but only available in modes after traversing menus.  Brilliant.

Maximus III Extreme P55-based motherboard: allows “Wireless Overclocking via Bluetooth”

Gee, what could possibly go wrong with remote controlled OverClocking?  Welcome to the ASUS Remotely Overclocked Boxen or Toasted (ASUS ROBOT: the other way to stimulate the economy).

WarDriving enthusiasts, blue pill driving, are not limited to merely toasting boxen.  The ASUS RC BlueTooth will enable no end of mayhem: controlling applications… virtualized malware. yay!

BlueTooth + admin user context + internet = pain

Wireless Overclocking via Bluetooth

California Energy Commission (LCD) Television Efficiency

Filed under: CIO, gear, Gulagosphere — Tags: , , , — Seth Wisely @ 21:12

CEC should mandate all TVs sold from now forward remain in an off-state.  This would increase the quality of much of hollywood programming while reducing power consumption by up to 100%!!

California, home to hollywood and San Fagcisco, plans to "save" enery by coerced disuse

Why stop with appliances? New buildings constructed in 2011 should be built without electrical wiring to save electricity, made without wood to save trees, not built over land so as not to displace precious evolutionarily-challenged animals, neither made with cement nor metal to deter gouging the precious planet, but have solar panels. By 2013 phase 2 will render most Californians unarmed tribes of illiterate hungry carrion “Naturalists”.   With luck California will vote less blue…. having far fewer citizens… although by then citizenship might be defined as existing within the borders of the country.

Think of the savings of not-using!  ‘They’ could use all that energy to renew the other energy.

Save the environment: stop exhaling.
