e-Paper But Not PDF

  • by

When I was over in London last week I picked up a copy of the New Scientist magazine (always a good read). In there I found an article following up on the latest developments in the world of e-paper. I had heard about this technology some time ago when black and white changeable images were… Read More »e-Paper But Not PDF

Print Off Your New PC

  • by

We’ve all printed off a spec for our new PC purchase at some stage or another but imagine if you could actually print your PC (or at least some part of it). This new technology of 3D printing devices is really starting to raise eyebrows. A story that should be closely watched… source: CNN.com

Vodafone to go Wi-Fi

  • by

Well yes and no. The operator has said that it will support the billing of Wi-Fi hotspots but it won’t actually partake in the rollout of these hotspots. To me this shows a lack of dedication to the cause and an attempt to keep a finger in the pie of Wi-Fi. Vodafone have the technology,… Read More »Vodafone to go Wi-Fi

London Again

I Didn’t, I Don’t Have To

  • by

I’ve been following the case recently of Liam Lawlor and all the disputes involved with extracting any information from the man. Personnally I would dub him to be Ireland’s answer to “Comical Ali” (Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf – the Iraqi information minister) thanks to his humourous denials of basically everything and suggesting otherwise.

Q. What goes no, no, no, no, no, no, no, yes? A. Minister Seamus Brennan being questioned about whether the Luas project was actually wrong in it’s approach to solving the problems of inner-city transport. I heard this on the news earlier this morning on the way to work and seemingly it comes from an… Read More »A Screw Luas?

Things That Make Me Sick

  • by

Last night I sat down to watch the 9 o’clock news and within 30 minutes I was sickened by quite a number of things. Firstly, good old Hairy Marney (aka Mary Harney) showing up to the announcement of new jobs in Cork, I ask where was she when 3-com announced losses? Surely her support was… Read More »Things That Make Me Sick
