¿Y si esto te ocurriera a ti?

"Hoy justamente, hace no muchos minutos estaba histérica". La tecnología en ocasiones puede portarse peor que un enemigo. La histeria no llega como por arte de magia, ni siquiera cuando se es mujer no; ito. (Y no me refiero a un cargador de esos que llevan las jabas del camión de carga a la tienda, no. "Mi adaptador de CA (corriente alterna para la gente común que no tiene por qué saber ni madres de circuitos y elctrónica) hizo corto circuito, osease, SE QUEMÓ".
Ahora imagina que ocurriera exactamente lo mismo con el cargador de tu pc o de tu mac, no podrías hacer tareas ni terminar proyectos del trabajo. De nuevo ¿que si por qué aseguro que la tecnología puede ser un enemigo? Bueno, porque hoy en día toda la información importante está prisonera en una caja metálica que cuando deja de funcionar puede ponernos la vida de cabeza.
"Life is a bitch, and so does technology"

Nokia 888: The phone of the future...

Believe it or not this is a reallity. Within the next few years, we will have everything we have been waiting for just in a small cellphone. You may wear it as a bracelet, as a pin, even as if it was a key chain.

This is all about nanotech.. And it's great. I'm already waiting for it, yet it won't be ready up until 2010.


Check out what I'm talking about...







“Form follows you”A personal mobile communication device which lets you be free and fun. It is light, simple and carefree. You can change its form according to your needs during the day.
It is targeted to the young consumers who are likely to be active and take place in a lot of different activities. Because they move and change place too much. They do a lot of different things during the day. So that’s what my design offers : to adjust to the moment, the place and the function.
Technologies that are used:
It uses liquid battery, speech recognition, flexible touch screen, touch sensitive body cover which lets it understand and adjust to the environment. It has a simple programmable body mechanism so that it changes forms in different situations.
You dont have to carry it in your pocket or on your wrist. You can carry it anywhere, in anyform. You can roll it, bend it, put on your clothes like a clip. It also makes some form changes that makes it more ergonomical: i.e. when you want to talk on the phone, the body form turns into the form of the good old telephone. You can personalize these forms and record them. So it fits you the best in the way that you have chosen. The functions that it has also create a feeling of electronical pet, as it senses your moves, understand what you want, respond you in the best way. It learns you, to fit you better.Also e-motions lets you send forms to the other 888 users. It could be the shape of a heart or a small dance. This way you can talk without words.

The user interacts with E-motions… It means electronical motions that 888 has. You can send and receive forms from / to friends. You can send a heart shape to your girlfriend, so her telephone turns into an icon of heart. Or you can send a dancing form to your friends to call them to the party tonight. This is the fun side of the product. If we look from the functionality side, 888 is quite flexible. You can put it into your pocket, roll it and make it smaller, or put on your wrist when you want to make a video call on the go. If you want to talk like a normal telephone, there you have your telephone shape. We go through a lot of places and situations in the daily life, so it seems like one form is not enough.

You can change the form of the body. Not just the color. And you can do the same by sending an e-motion to your friend.

Technology and women is not a perfect match

Hace pocos días recibí esto por correo y por el tema pensé que era un chiste machista o algo por el estilo, pero la curiosidad fue más fuerte y al verlo me di cuenta que no está tan disparado de la realidad.

Para aquellos que no creen que las mujeres y la tecnología no siempre podemos llevamos bien n(y digo podemos porque la verdad es que justamente la tecnología y yo no hacemos buena pareja)...

Disfrútenlo...

Digital Binary Watch

Lo que todo ingeniero esperaba, ya tiene a la venta bastante, pero ahora también en diferentes modelos, y no sólo como reloj de escritorio sino como reloj de muñeca. Los diseños varían en color, tamaño e incluso en forma porque ya hay varias marcas fabricándolos.

Si eres ingeniero seguro esto te va a encantar, y si no lo eres, bueno aquí hay una pequeña explicación de cómo funciona. Lo increible no es que lo hayan sacado, sino que en verdad es un producto para gente que adora la programación.

A la gente... ¡Lo que pida!

La vdd a mi me encantó y probablemente me compre alguno más adelante, sin embargo, si está medio confuso el asunto.




¡¡¡Es fácil!!! Es la 11:27... (creo) Jeje, no estaría de más preguntarle a un ingeniero... la lógica no está nada mal y sólo es cuestión de agilizar el cálculo mental.

Nonverbal communication

Muchos creemos que cuando nos comunicamos, nuestros mensajes son transmitidos por vía de las palabras que emitimos a través de nuestra voz. Sin embargo, con las clases (productivas o no) que he tenido este semestre he aprendido que la mayor parte de nuestros mensajes los emitimos a través de otros medios (llámese comunicación no verbal).

La forma en que vestimos, el tono en el que hablamos, los gestos y ademánes que utilizamos, la mirada, nuestras expresiones, los colores, etc. (Quienes llevan clases conmigo saben de lo que estoy hablando)

El punto era comentarles que navegando y tontenado en youtube... (ajá, sobre todo perdiendo el tiempo que no tengo) me encontré este video sensishito y carismático (con acento de argentino), que habla un poco o un mucho acerca de lo que he estado reflexionando los últimos meses con mis clases (productivas o no) del subsistema.

Espero que les guste y si no.. bueno... les recomiendo que vean a partir del minuto 4:50 (ahí comienza la mejor parte)



Sólo para que piensen un poquito antes de decir algo, recuerden que desde antes de comenzar a hablar, ya estamos comunicando.

Why You Will Not See Opera on Your iPhone

I was surfing the net and I found this article which I belive is interesting...

It not only depends on the development of new technology in ipods, but to realize that technology might be an intruder more than an instrument.

Chek it out!!!

It was published by Saul Hansell in the New York Times, last Monday.

Why You Will Not See Opera on Your iPhone
By Saul Hansell
A paragraph of my post last week about Opera Software, which makes browsers for cellphones and PCs, got a lot of notice on tech blogs. But, as often happens, the retelling of the story has created an odd snowball of misunderstanding.
I asked Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner, Opera’s chief executive, about the iPhone, after he mentioned how the Opera Mini browser was popular on other smartphones. He replied that in fact some Opera engineers had started developing an iPhone version, but the company didn’t pursue it because Apple doesn’t allow products on the iPhone that compete with its own software — in this case, the Safari browser.
I wrote that, figuring it would tell iPhone owners what they really wanted to know: They are not going to be able to use Opera Mini any time soon.
Boy, was I wrong.
The discussion has been raging about how Opera came to know that its software wasn’t going to be welcomed by Apple. In particular, iPhone fans wanted to know if the company submitted a fully working version of Opera to the iPhone App Store.
So I went back to Mr. von Tetzchner for more details. He said that the development of the iPhone browser was more an “internal project” of some engineers than a product that management was committed to introducing. Indeed, development was halted after the company looked at the details of the license agreement in Apple’s software development kit and realized that it would not be permitted.
“We stopped the work because of the prohibitive license,” Mr. von Tetzchner wrote in an e-mail message.
The eagle-eyed Mac blogger John Gruber had wondered whether there was a technical issue because Opera Mini appears to run on Java, which is not available on the iPhone.
But Mr. von Tetzchner wrote that Opera has a version that runs “native” — that is without needing an environment like Java.
I’m not entirely sure why these questions stirred up the blogosphere so much. We already know that Apple does reject some applications when they duplicate functions of Apple’s own software.
Still, the attention, at least in some quarters, to the details of Opera’s plans for the iPhone highlights some of the stress that Apple has created. The company is oblique in what it tells developers in advance about what its standards are for the App Store. As a result, Apple fans and developers look to every little incident and mention of the iPhone for clues about how Apple’s App store actually works.
John Gruber wrote this very clearly last month:
Here is a complete list of what Apple must do to increase developers’ trust in the App Store system:
1. State the rules.
2. Follow the rules.
