Jolicloud Review? Stay tuned…

February 3, 2013 Leave a comment

With some things going in my life at the moment I haven’t had the time to work on a full review of the new Jolicloud desktop. So I’ve decided to hold off on a review until Jolicloud makes an official announcement on how they are going to update or replace Joli OS. In the meantime I highly recommend testing out the new Jolicloud desktop. It’s a wonderful service to organize & keep up with all your cloud content. Be sure to use their new integrated feedback button to tell them what you think. You can use it for tech support, feature requests or just a simple hello or thank you. They really great with responding. Anyway, check back here after Jolicloud makes a new announcement.

Boy I feel old, Happy Birthday to me!

March 11, 2011 5 comments

Evidently I can’t kick it like I used to & I’m not even 40 yet. LOL Had a pretty good birthday or at least as good of one you can have working all day. I’ll make that up tomorrow with my day off. 😉 I’m going to need it after going to bed late last night & another late one tonight.

I originally planned on posting my extensive in-depth review of Jolicloud & Joli OS 1.2, but with all the Facebook & Twitter catching up I just didn’t get the time to work on it. I did however install Joli OS 1.2 on my main desktop machine for the first time. Up until today I had used Jolicloud exclusively on this little 10″ eMachines eM250 netbook. Never wanted to install Jolicloud on the desktop since it’s my PlayOn DLNA media server & my only access to my favorite TV shows via Hulu. With the latest version I figured what the hell & I installed the Jolicloud Express edition. I’ll included full details on that in the review, but bottom line it worked but not without any problems. Stay tuned till tomorrow. It’s time for bed! 🙂

Two Things I Love: Batman & Tech

March 5, 2011 Leave a comment

First, let me say “Welcome!”. I’ve finally joined the 21st century & made a personal blog. Funny thing is this isn’t my first time. I originally did my first web site back in 1995 about 3D accelerators. It was a blog before they were called blogs or even weblogs. LOL Second, let me say that these are just two things I love, but they’re not entirely the most important. My wife & family rank higher, but I won’t be talking about my personal life here, just tech & Batman.

You’re probably asking yourself, will I talk a lot about Batman? Probably not. The theme is just a cheeky way to integrate my tech talk with my almost unhealthy obsession with the Dark Knight. 🙂 I fell in love with my blog title after seeing it in the following webcomics on Microsoft’s Kinect:

What will I talk about? Expect topics on gaming like Xbox, Kinect, XNA & Indie Games. I’ve been a big Xbox gaming fan for the past 5 years & I post regularly on forums like Beyond 3D, NeoGAF & the Indie Game forum on Microsoft’s App Hub. I’m also fascinated with gadgets & mobile technology like tablets, Zune or Windows Phone 7. I regularly visit Gizmodo & Engadget to keep up with the latest news. You might even see a little bit about surveying, mapping & GIS technology since that’s what I do for my day job. But initially you’ll see a lot about my most recent obsession: cloud computing on my netbook using the Linux OS Jolicloud. So again welcome to my blog  & thanks for visiting!
