I would provide this as an evidence that upgrades in Windows world does not always mean getting better. But, don’t be relieved. The same came in the Mac world when Apple recently upgraded iWork to balance the desktop version with its web cousin.

Have Shakespeare in mind? Prepare yourself for a trip to Italy in the middle age. It’s likely that he had been there for years. Even born there, says Shakespeare in Italy , BBC’s two-part TV factual. What does it mean? It means a freaking lot to every Shakespeare-dreamer.
In this presidential election, a slogan has been rising above. It is my country’s near-final step toward its own Share the Wealth movement. Expecting emotional, not rational, support from public, candidates for the slogan say they would swing the sword of regulations against big companies.
Last Thursday, Henry Edward Roberts, arguably the father of personal computer, passed away at the age of 68. He made an electronic kit named Altair 8800 in 1975. Soon the kit made two young men, moved from WA, popular.

Again, watch the video first. Already wide-spread, it shows a scenario with Courier device.
Some say it’s an another vaporware from the Redmond company. Is it? Look closer. The device in the video barely show any revolutionary. Each piece is clear and present technology. What looks truly amazing is the proper combination. Somewhere between OneNote and the following vision.
The thing is Courier looks almost away from the traditional, file-centric computing. And this approach was once tried and implemented by another player more than 15 years ago. It was the first device called PDA. Newton MessagePad wasn’t perfect. There was no connection, no camera, and of course no phone. However, it gave the world a new blossom of computing. I don’t remember who and where but it’s described as information-centric computing .
I was finding a way to update my Facebook profile automatically with my tweets. Knew there was an official Twitter app to do that. After it failed several times, I turned to others.
Soon found an app called
Smart Twitter, and it’s one of the few apps to help update Facebook profile. In addition, its description said it filters users’ tweets, so only messages, not replies or retweets, are shown. It seemed to work as described. Wait! Since most of my tweets are replies, it’s likely that my profile page will not be updated as frequently as I tweet.
Hmmm… Decided to leave a note here in a longer version whenever I write an important update on my Twitter. Anyway, it’s great to be back! (EDIT: Originally for Facebook Note)
(EDIT: Because my decision was too late, I had to move quickly. Spent some time looking for crash courses to help me pass the TCT test. There was no such a thing. As a last resort, I knocked on the door of KST, an association for professional translators.)
(EDIT: In Sep. 2005 and Feb. 2006, nearly 50,000 and more than 200,000 identities each were stolen by a group located in China. All those identities have been registered to play Lineage , a massive online game from NCSoft. While people were witnessing countless articles and posts covering the case, I tailed the following comment to a disappointing column on ZDNet Korea.)
How different this world looks in a man’s eyes who accidently did a wrong thing. The film tries to show how, following a mechanic. | IMDb
